This week I am delighted to have with me, host of the Talent Equation Podcast, Stuart Armstrong.  Stuart's podcast was the first podcast I really got addicted to and have been a fan of it ever since, so I was both excited and nervous about this chat.Stuart has an amazing amount of knowledge but what actually shines through for me in this chat is his passion around coach development and his willingness to share. I highly recommend jumping over to Stuarts podcast where there is over 180 episodes of gold for coaches, athletes and parents.If you like the podcast please share it with your friends and it would be great if you could leave a rating on iTunes, Spotify or wherever you listen as we would love to grow our community

Zane has been working in the mental skills space for a number of years and has worked with a wide range of athletes and teams across various sports. Recently he has created a journal designed for young athletes to assist them with their mental skills journal and to start developing habits that will help them later in life. This journal is an outstanding resource for young people whether they are athletes or not, it has such wonderful frameworks in it that we could all use.If you like the podcast please share it with your friends and it would be great if you could leave a rating on iTunes, Spotify or wherever you listen as we would love to grow our community
This week I am joined by Black Ferns 7s Star Gayle Broughton and Black Ferns 7s Coach Cory SweeneyThe Black Ferns 7s is one of the great sporting stories in NZ history and they have created something that they can not only be proud of both on and off the field, but have also shown what can be achieved with a clear plan and vision. Gayle's story is unique, it hasn't come easy for her and this is a fascinating chat which provides insight in to her world and also the 7s environment. Cory is a great coach and at times during this conversation I had goosebumps listening to him and imagining what it would be like to be in their environment, If you like the podcast please share it with your friends and it would be great if you could leave a rating on iTunes, Spotify or wherever you listen as we would love to grow our community
