When lives are on the line and people are pushed to their limits, what do the elite Special Forces of the US military lean on to find that extra gear? As a former officer in the U.S. Navy SEALs, with 13 years on active duty, during six (6) combat deployments in both the Afghanistan and Iraq, Coleman Ruiz should know - not only did he take part in and lead hundreds of operations and dozens of sensitive military programs, he then went on to serve as an advanced training officer in Naval Special Warfare. Joining him for this 2-part episode is Ceci Craft, the recently appointed Director of Mental Performance for the Philadelphia Phillies in the MLB, who has 6 years experience coaching US Army & Special Operations personnel, and who at the time of recording was the Lead Mental Performance Coach for the program overseeing the mental conditioning of US Army & Special Operations soldiers. In a conversation with two of the best practitioners in their respective industries - with so many insights that we had to split the conversation over two separate listens! - we dig into the concepts of mental agility & emotional stability, and how the best of the best train them to prepare for their toughest battles.
