In the third episode of Season 2 I get to talk to Pathway Scientist at the English Institute of Sport (EIS) - Elliott Newell. Elliott's conversation with Dan Abrahams on The Sport Psych Show was the first time I had heard of the 'PIE' so you can largely credit Elliott with the title of the podcast.
Elliott is a sport and performance scientist (BASES Accredited/Science Council Chartered) with specialism in psychological support. He works in high performance sport with a focus on talent development, and using talent development knowledge and strategies to maximise the effectiveness and efficiency of performance pathways. He's a huge advocate of personal growth and development, and this is evident in our conversation. Elliott racks up a lot of miles collaborating with athletes, coaches and talent pathway coaches, traveling far and wide to connect the dots within his sphere of the high performance system - hence the title, 'sport psychology on the road'.
This is part one of a two part conversation with Elliott, so look out for part two when it is out.
