How can otherwise ordinary people perform at extraordinary levels? How is it that certain places at certain times – “talent hotbeds” as Daniel Coyle calls them – are able to reproduce superior talent after superior talent year after year? And is there anything that takes place in these talent hotbeds that the rest of us can learn from and use to improve our own skill levels at work, at school, and in life in general?
The answer, courtesy of The Talent Code, is an unqualified yes. In the first half of our conversation with Daniel Coyle, who as a contributing editor to Outside magazine is also author of the New York Times best-selling book, Lance Armstrong’s War, we learn about the secret called “deep practice” which is the key to the sort of targeted, focused training that has produced everything from superstar golfers and soccer players to virtuouso musicians and academically overachieving school children.
Here in Part 2 of our interview, Daniel outlines the key aspects of deep practice – from the importance of pacing to the strategy of chunking that allows people to focus on small, discrete sets of skills all the while remaining aware of the larger picture, the bigger context of what the athlete, student or professional is trying to accomplish. We also look closely at the coaching strategies in these talent hotbeds, with an eye toward learning how to best teach, motivate and inspire greatness and outperformance in others.
