In this second part of an extended 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 jump straight into the big questions: how do you train mental agility & toughness at the elite levels? And are there behaviors or actions we can all take that will help us improve in our own battles, at work and in life?
Coleman Ruiz & Ceci Craft should know - not only did Coleman take lead hundreds of operations and dozens of sensitive military programs as part of the SEAL teams, he then went on to serve as an advanced training officer in Naval Special Warfare. Ceci, the recently appointed Director of Mental Performance for the Philadelphia Phillies in the MLB, also has 6 years experience coaching US Army & Special Operations personnel, and at the time of recording was the Lead Mental Performance Coach for the program overseeing the mental conditioning of US Army & Special Operations soldiers.
