In this episode of the SPS Performance Concepts Chat, Derek M. Hansen of StrengthPowerSpeed.com speaks with Doug Kechijian, a performance-based physical therapist working out of New York City. Doug has a relatively unique background having worked as a Pararescueman in the U.S. Air force where he trained and conducted operational missions with elite military units throughout the world. His background has played an important role in how he views sport performance, particularly when examining the role of leadership, teamwork and process-oriented solutions.
He touches on the key elements that make an individual team or organization successful and resilient. Doug also dispels many myths around physical and mental preparation in the military, and how many of these myths are commonly perpetuated in sporting circles. He provides exceptional examples of how good leaders, good teams and skilled practitioners prepare and apply their talents when it counts.
