Monday, April 20:

1pm EST (6pm UK time) Johnny McKinstry on International Management

We've had a lot of podcasts and interviews discussing culture, but Johnny's perspective on this is going to be really fascinating. As current head coach of the Uganda national team, Johnny has also managed Sierra Leone and Rwanda. One of the most unique coaching journeys you will come across, Johnny will share his insights on international management and adapting to different culture, while at the same time, successfully implementing your own systems and processes.

However, despite of the growth in awareness of the mental side of the game, Paul believes that the overwhelming majority of coaches are still doing very little to improve mental performance.
