Coach Grant Holicky describes how to adjust your mindset around feedback and criticism and change your training for the better. Criticism can feel like a dirty word sometimes, especially if the source of that criticism is someone you don’t completely trust.
In this video, Holicky stresses the importance of finding a trustworthy source, and how trust is the key to the athlete-coach relationship. However, the bulk of this video is more about how you can respond and learn to use feedback and criticism to your advantage. In essence, curbing your emotional response to feedback and criticism can open the door to improvements in training, performance, and even life.
