The three talent ID lectures are below. These are primarily for the good coaches who attended the Academy, though of course I hope everyone gets some value out of them. If you’ve been a regular on this site, you’ll recognize many of the concepts and slides, so I do apologize for repetition, but as I say, this post is for those coaches who I was lucky enough to spend the week with. I learned a great deal from you, and hope our paths cross again in the future.
This is the material I presented in Florida, and I hope that you all take something from them (If the slides don’t work here, it’s usually something to do with how it’s embedded in a browswer. Or something. Just click on the hyperlink title of the presentation on the top left and you’ll be taken to a page where it will work).
But most of all, remember: Nullius in verba, always question your answers and be scientists in your thinking!
