Dr. Nicole Detling, Professor in Kinesiology with the University of Utah and Mental Skills Coach with multiple Olympic Teams (US Speed Skating, US Snowboarding Team, US Freestyle Aerials Ski Team), sees that the best are resilient and deal effectively with adversity. 1) They “get their rookie on” and are always growing and learning. In the podcast, she describes one of the phrases she uses frequently: 2) “Embrace the suck, but don’t get stuck in the suck.” She provides 3 of the 10 protective factors of resilient leaders which are optimism, social support, and failure is feedback. Nicole outlines a popular equation, E + R = O (Event + Response = Outcome). Her point is that you have no control over the events in your life or sport but have full control over your response. She believes it helps to plan to fail at something every day because 3) “failure is a possibility and a probability.” Her final advice for high performers – or those who work to reach their greater potential – is to be with who you are with right now – to be fully present with the person right in front of you.
