127: Mustafa Sarkar on resilience

Today we’re diving deep into a topic that’s not just timely but also timeless: resilience. Our guest is Mustafa Sarkar, an expert in the psychology of resilience, particularly in the context of sports and high-performance environments.

Mustafa’s work has been pivotal in helping us understand what resilience is—and perhaps just as importantly, what it isn’t. Whether you’re an athlete, a coach, or anyone striving for excellence, understanding the nuances of resilience can be a game-changer.

In today’s conversation, we’ll explore the psychological elements that contribute to resilience, how these factors may vary among different roles within a sports setting, and the strategies that can be employed to build both individual and team resilience. We’ll also discuss the role of environment, the importance of balancing support and challenge, and the future frontiers of resilience research.

So, if you’re interested in building a more resilient mindset, either for yourself or for your team, this episode is packed with insights you won’t want to miss.
