Description Jozsef Nagy was born and raised in Hungary and may know more about the breaststroke than anyone in the world. Not surprisingly, Jozsef Nagy was a breaststroker himself. He won the Hungarian Jr. National Championship in 1973 and competed for Hungary internationally. After he retired from swimming in 1976, he studied physical education at the University of Budapest and earned a prestigious Master Coach certificate. During this time, he read an article on the pattern of ocean waves by Nobel physicist Richard Feynman. Applying principles of physics to swimming, the idea for “wave action breaststroke” was born. It was originally just a theory, created on paper – but then proven in “practice” by Janos Dzvonyar, who placed 5th in the Moscow Olympic Games of 1980. Until Nagy came along, breaststrokers glided along the surface like alligators. Their bodies rode low in the water, with only their backs and the crowns of their heads visible. In the 1980’s, breaststrokers began to resemble buoys bobbing in the water as the stroke became more vertical. In 1986, Nagy moved to the United States and began coaching Mike Barrowman, the first swimmer to perfect “the wave” by channeling his power into smooth, undulating motions. To help Barrowman grasp the idea, Nagy showed him footage of a cheetah on the run. “A cheetah keeps his head down and lifts his shoulders to run,” Barrowman said, “It really did help me to get a mental picture of what the shoulders needed to do in the stroke.” Between 1988 and 1992, Barrowman dominated the 200 meter breaststroke, winning 15 of 16 major national and international competitions and the world record he set at the Barcelona Olympic Games held for ten years. In addition to Barrowman, Nagy coached swimmers from four different nations to international success including, Roque Santos of the USA, Sergio Lopez of Spain, Gabriella Cespo and Norbert Rozsa of Hungary, and Canada’s Annamay Pierse.

The Secrets of Highly Successful Groups

The Secrets of Highly Successful Groups

Daniel Coyle, New York Times bestselling author of The Talent Code, visited the RSA after going inside some of the most effective organisations in the world. He not only explains what makes such groups tick, but also identifies the key factors that can generate team cohesion in any walk of life. He examines the verbal and physical cues that bring people together, and determines specific strategies that encourage collaboration and build trust. And he offers cautionary tales of toxic cultures and advises how to reform them, above all demonstrating the extraordinary achievements that result when we know how to cooperate effectively.
Daniel Coyle: The Talent Code

Daniel Coyle: The Talent Code

"Reach, stare and connect" were the three keys New York Times bestselling author Daniel Coyle emphasized to discovering talent in oneself and in others as he spoke with nearly 400 local educators, parents, community members and UW-Stevens Point students in 2014's three-part Point in Common community speaker series. Coyle, author of "The Talent Code" and "The Little Book of Talent," challenged the Stevens Point community to seek ways to reach out and struggle when learning and to use these three habits: 1. Maximize Reachfulness (Reach): Celebrate struggle and repetition; Use brief, intense game-like sessions; Be willing to be stupid. 2. Fill the Windshield (Stare): Avoid being Tiger Parents; Start being Johnny Appleseed; Seek mentors, models and age-mixing; Encourage stealing; Take future fieldtrips. 3. Communicate like a Master Coach (Connect): First, Connect; Praise for effort, not ability; Use the magical six words: I love to watch you play. As part of his research, Coyle spent two years visiting the world's greatest talent hotbeds in sports, art, business, and music — tiny but powerful places that consistently produce huge numbers of extraordinary performers.
