In our 21st episode, we explore the role of the consultant in the realm of high performance sport with Carl Valle. Professional teams, high profile colleges and national sport organizations all have the ability to expand their knowledge base by bringing in experts to supplement and complement their internal team of professionals. Who do you bring into your organization? How do you find the right expert? What would this relationship look like over the short and long term? These are all significant questions for both consultants and sport organizations.
Some of the smartest people in the world look to getting help from people who have extraordinary expertise in very specific areas. There should be lots of opportunities for consultants to provide support in various areas and maximize the potential of a particular team or organization. Budgets must be created for investment into intellectual and experiential assistance — whether classified as continuing education or technical support. Those who want to win will continue to push the envelope in the area of sport preparation support and expertise.
