Ben Freakley (@bcfreakley), is a sport psychologist, founder of ready,Set,Resilient, and former head of mental performance for the Toronto Blue Jays of Major League Baseball. Ben brings a lot of experience working with elite performers, from professional athletes to working with the 75th Ranger Regiment to multiple college and professional teams. In this replay from April 2020, we dive into how his players were being supported during COVID-19, the difference between praise and affirmation, how can we be better coaches by understanding our purpose, and so much more. Ben is a true gem who has been in the trenches as a coach and a psychologist.
