In this talk, Dan discusses how to audit one’s life so that we can make accurate appraisals of where we are, where we want to go, and how we build the stepping stones between the two. He presents tips and tricks to combat the hardship of self-evaluation, failure and new challenges.
Coaches can lose perspective over time as they get away from their playing days. As one of the lucky few to play pro baseball past age 30, Dan provides his years of insight into good and bad coaching strategies, how to motivate, reward and promote positive change in players so that the team as a whole can improve and move forward.
In this very raw presentation, Dan reveals how hard his journey was, going from the last pitcher on the depth chart in college, to two-time All-Star as a professional. He dealt with two major arm surgeries, release from numerous teams, and pits of despair as his health and performance slipped. He not only lived to tell about it, but thrived personally because of the years of heartache that his sport caused.
Using his proprietary assessment, Dan talks to high school, college and pro teams to help each athlete gain an understanding of their level baseball skill, physical ability and situational awareness. Through the talk about auditing their ability, players learn where the holes in their game lie so that they can form an actionable plan to better help the team win, and help them reach their career aspirations.
