The Seahawks success through mental imagery, optimism and grit with Michael Gervais
In the Audible Original “Compete to Create,” released on July 9 by Seahawks sport psychologist Michael Gervais and co-authored by Pete Carroll, there are new details around the way the Seahawks test for grit. It's something that started with reports of Seattle engaging in staring competitions with potential draft picks.
We also discuss leadership styles. Richard Sherman recently contrasted the coaching styles between Kyle Shanahan and Carroll and we discuss the thoughts behind how Pete coaches players. We also go through some of the concepts in mental performance that have helped with much of the team’s success.
Tune into the episode as we talk about the grieving and healing process that some of us may still be working through after the end of Super Bowl 49. Gervais explains why some of our brains are wired to compartmentalize competitive losses in the same way our brains process the loss of loved ones.
