I thought it would be a great idea to give everyone a little preview of next week’s Soundview Live event featuring Alan Fine, author of You Already Know How to Be Great: A Simple Way to Remove Interference and Unlock Your Greatest Potential (co-authored with Rebecca R. Merrill). You’ll have the chance to join us on Tuesday, February 22, at Noon (Eastern). Fine is currently the president of InsideOut Development, an executive coaching and training organization. But he spent a good portion of his life as a well-respected tennis coach in his native Wales. What you might not now is how his previous experience as an instructor led directly to a major breakthrough into his study of performance.
On what Fine describes as a gray day at a gray place, the Mackintosh Tennis Club to be exact, he was coaching a shy nine-year-old girl. Despite his best efforts, Fine and the girl’s mother watched on as she was unable to connect with the ball and drive it back over the net. By this point in his life, Fine was deepening his study of coaching including extensive reading on psychology, psychosynthesis, Zen and performance. This led Fine to make a simple suggestion to the girl. What he suggested caused the girl to suddenly be able to hit the ball over the net 53 times in a row.
What did Fine tell the girl? While we can’t guarantee that Fine will reveal the secret during his Soundview Live appearance (although it’s a good bet that he will), you’ll be able to find out when the Soundview summary of You Already Know How to Be Great debuts in the coming months. Don’t forget, Soundview subscribers can attend Soundview Live for FREE. Visit Summary.com or Soundview’s Facebook or Twitter pages to learn more.
