Greg Meehan: Confidence Can Be Built

Greg Meehan: Confidence Can Be Built

Confidence is not intrinsic for everyone but can be developed with small steps and consistent habits. Elite coach Greg Meehan joins the show for this Oct 2020 episode (86) and talks with hosts Kelly and Maria about how he motivates collegiate and Olympic athletes while maintaining work-life harmony. He is the 2021 U.S. Olympic Women's Swimming Head Coach and 2020-2021 is his ninth season as Director of Women's Swimming at Stanford University. A three-time NCAA Swimming Coach of the Year, Meehan led Stanford to back-to-back-to-back national championships in 2017, 2018 and 2019. He has coached 36 different Stanford swimmers to a combined 274 All-American honors, which includes 17 national championship relays and 25 individual national championships. Meehan and his wife, Tess, reside in Palo Alto, Calif., with their two sons, Salvatore and James. Episode Topics and Mentions: Stanford University, Katie Ledecky, Simone Manuel, Lia Neal, Maya DiRado, 2021 Tokyo Summer Olympics, University of the Pacific, Adversity, Embracing failure, Flexibility, Long course swimming, Charlie Kennedy, Rich Coppola, Jon Urbanchek, Cyndi Gallagher, Dave Durden, Princeton University, Work-life harmony, Golf. Takeaways: [Maria] As the communicator, it is your responsibility to clearly convey what you need or are asking from others. Work-life harmony is being peaceful with the choices you are making, even if it is not always equal. [Kelly]: Confidence is a commonality between champions -- and it can be developed over time with small habits and routine. Remember to live life one day at a time and it keeps you from feeling overwhelmed and helps you stay on task. Quote of the Week: "For me life is all about people and most importantly, the people you surround yourself with" -- Greg Meehan

Community Led Planning Chapter 1: What is CLP?

Community Led Planning Chapter 1: What is CLP?

The first in a series of short films produced by Rural Action Yorkshire (now Community First Yorkshire) which explain the Community Led Planning (CLP) process, a tried and tested approach that helps local people to explore the needs for their area, set priorities and plan actions. Community Led Planning has a number of important characteristics: - It is led, driven and resourced through grassroots action; - The people working on Community Plans are volunteers, usually a mix of parish councillors and other local people; - It involves extensive community participation and engagement using techniques such as questionnaires, meetings, discussions and events; - It results in a credible action plan based on in-depth consultation; - The action plan produced sets out how local problems and issues can be tackled. This will include actions which the community can undertake alone, and actions which they need to address in partnership with local authorities or other agencies.
