Every year professionals from a wide range of fields convene at the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference to discuss all things sports.
Shea Balish, a PhD candidate in the field of Psychology, had a stand-out lecture on the development of athletic talent.
His presentation featured an exploration of the 10,000 hour rule, the frailty of expertise, insight into which people are most likely to choke under pressure, and grooming talent to propel your team to the next level.
It’s good viewing. Illuminating research with far-reaching implications.
