In this episode, I’m joined by Barnaby Sargent Megicks. Barney is a PhD Student in Sport Coaching at Leeds Beckett University with ICOACHKIDS. His research focuses on talent and holistic development.
Barney is a Loughborough University and University of Birmingham Graduate and a qualified PE teacher. He is also a hockey coach at Leeds Hockey Club and West Yorkshire.
Barney and I discuss talent development environments (TDEs) and particularly focus on a paper that Barney led entitled ”Examining European Talent Development Environments: Athlete, Parent and Coach Perceptions”. We discuss the findings of the paper and elaborate on what coaches and leaders can take from the research.
