How to cope with the unexpected - by Shane O'Donoghue

How to cope with the unexpected is a topic is something that will come in handy at all times, but of course especially in these challenging times we're living right now with the pandemic. But it happens to coaches all the time obviously. Wether it's a key player getting injured the day before a top game, wether it's the opponent coach surprising you with a new tactical move, wether it's something we can't even consider at the moment... Big or small moments of unexpected events. How do we deal with it...

We thought this we be a cool topic for someone like Shane O'Donoghue. A player still... for his Irish club side Glenanne HC (and previously Dragons HC in Belgium) and the Irish national team. Olympian from Rio 2016 as well. But he is also a coach, both in sports as in corporate life for a company he represents in Ireland: Mentally Fit.

So save the date! We go live at Friday 2021-03-05 at 12:30h CET in Europe, which would be 22:30h in Sydney & Melbourne, 19h30 in Perth, 17:00h in India, 13:30h in most of Africa, 11:30h in the UK, 08:30h in Buenos Aires or... Saturday the 30th at 00:30h in Auckland. Make sure you block that time in your calendar if you want to join us live. As usual if you join us live it's free, if you want to watch it on demand you need to be a member.

We open our doors 30 minutes before the live session, so you can join us early. Have a talk with fellow coaches from around the world in our lounge, as if they are sitting across the table from you. The lounge will remain open for more or less an hour after the live session for your networking or a casual chat with the other coaches. So please confirm your seat below ⬇︎ and don't forget to #sharetheknowledge.

A replay video will be available on demand for free until the Monday following the live chat. Members will of course have on demand access to the replay video whenever they want for ever.
