Topics to be addressed at the SODI seminar series:

  • June 1: Crises present personal and societal challenges which result in typical sport objectives appearing to be unimportant; how does one motivate?
  • June 8: What can we learn from sport leaders who have successfully adapted to dramatic changes?
  • June 16: How the Super Bowl Champions dealt with crises
  • June 22: How to support athletes coping with extreme disappointment (e.g., cancelation of the Olympics)
