This week, The Coaching Journey Podcast is excited to welcome Doug Lemov on the show! Doug is an educator, author, and the Managing Director of Uncommon Schools. He also runs the fantastic website teachlikeachampion.com. Doug has written the international bestseller Teach Like a Champion, and Teach Like a Champion 2.0 as well as a book many coaches may find pertinent, Practice Perfect.
Our discussion today revolves around the cognitive process that is learning, and we talk about Doug's involvement with US Soccer in working with coaches through the upper level licenses offered by the Federation. We discuss skill acquisition as well as decision-making processes, and this is a discussion you are going to want to bring a pen and paper to because Doug spends the hour offering great insight into the learning process with youth development, both in the classroom and on the soccer field.
You can find Doug on Twitter: @Doug_Lemov and I would highly recommend you follow him as well as delve into his website: teachlikeachampion.com.
