WIDE-SCIENCE TRANSFORMING COACHING, DEVELOPMENT AND PERFORMANCE
Modern Room Decor
Frames guide the gathering of scientific knowledge. As more science is done, more problems are found in those frames, and they move on to new better frames for better knowledge and better practice.
Human sciences have moved on in academic ivory towers, three times from the ways scientists work in real-world practice. And so, many unseen constraints and problems hold even the very best of us back: hence thinking broader about what you do.
Broader thinking brings the most progressive academic human sciences to real-world practice to transform sport, coaching,
exercise, learning and performance—evidenced by invites to 13 leading universities, powerful testimonies from world-leading coaches and academic minds and publications in the highest quality research journals.
THINK BROADER - DO BETTER
Wow, what a show stopper! Deeply troubling, I can see I make mistakes
in several key areas, sub-conciously against my initial intentions,
this work is much needed.

If you like...
- quick, easy answers;
- attention-grabbing soundbites as analysis;
- over-energized presenters saying obvious things in
complex ways and hiding their lack of insight...
...look elsewhere, this platform is not for you.
However, if you are interested in taking a little more time—a few minutes not seconds—to consider how a theory-
research formed, broadening perspective can transform
what you think and do, watch the video below.
Science started as precise measurements and wide analysis but developed to become precise only, because it spread an industrial revolution to make undreamt of profits not because of better explanations.
We bring wide science back: using the "social" theories of the French post-structural philosophers— the most progressive explanations of human behaviour—robust, systematic and trustworthy, and so ready to help you!
So powerful, I honestly think this work
will be the new "John Wooden"
for our insights into coaching,
sports and exercise.

PRECISE AND WIDE SCIENCE COULD WORK TOGETHER
Currently in our precise scientific world: 2% of female 12-17 year-old Canadians meet physical activity guidelines, 75% male 17-24 year-old Americans would fail a military draft (after 6-months of training) and 70% of 13 year-olds drop out of sport.
We all know people unable to do "what they want" because their bodies won't allow it, mental health is the most used phrase in high school and post-secondary education, athletes are as injured as much as they are fit (e.g., the best English Soccer team in 1982, Aston Villa, won the League with just 14 players, but today soccer teams require over 30 players (two full teams).
And in track and field standards have even (outside one or two anomalies) stagnated. Or at least records are now being broken, only because shoe technologies have changed, not because athletes' bodies are better.
Industries require flexible creative problem-solvers not "repeating-knowledge-good-at-exams" graduates, leadership training is everywhere so no one follows and everyone disagrees about where to go and 70% of Change Management initiatives fail.
There are then, many more factors to see, know and do.
Who we are and what we do
Too often, scholars talk in academic ivory tower language and progressive ideas gather dust, and so real-world experts have no choice to use over enthusiastic attention-grabbing analysis. Broader Thinking is progressive ideas in user-friendly ways.
We are scholar-consultants. Our work is based on our leading theoretically and research driven work, the subject of over 50 peer-reviewed academic articles, book chapters and international conference presentations providing our credibility.
We are then, a new voice in sport, exercise, coaching, learning and business, which:
... are based on the most progressive psycho/social theories of human behaviour, post-structuralism;
... are tested on some of the world's best coaches (of world record holders and Olympic champions);
... is the source of an ongoing research program;
... is continually checked by the world's leading minds (academic and real-world experts).
