In this episode, we have a repost with Laura Vanderkam from two years ago. Laura is an author and host of a few different podcasts including before breakfast and best of both worlds. One of her published books is called "off the clock", which, as you might have guessed, is about time management and using our time to have a better life. That's what Stuart and Laura discuss. They talk through why time management is important, why tracking your time will help you, how to structure your day and workweek and the concept of savouring.

In today's reposted episode from May of 2020, Stuart talks to Nick Winkelman, who is the Head of Athletic Performance for the Irish Rugby Football Union, about the power of tough to hear feedback, reflective practice, creating coaching cues with your clients, coaching the push-up using a framework called the coaching communication loop and what Nick's favourite analogy/ coaching cue is. The section on the push up is a masterclass in coaching so even if you skip ahead and listen to that I promise you'll get a tonne from this episode!
