Tim Nolan con PMC-5: The Adaptive Unconscious and Scouting (English Edition)
If you have read "Blink" by Malcolm Gladwell, then you understand the power of the adaptive unconscious. The adaptive unconscious is a phenomenon that allows us to make rapid and surprisingly accurate snap judgments. It is largely based on the research of Robert Rosenthal and Nalini Ambady that describes our ability to make accurate assessments based on short windows of behavioral and linguistic information. This book is being written to help Scouts make optimal snap judgments and follow up with legendary resources on the mental side. It can also help college coaches make more effective recruiting decisions and equip them to develop players even faster to reduce the need for "Building Seasons". This book is written in stream of consciousness and it is primarily the result of meeting with Bob Rosenthal at UC Riverside.
In this book, you will learn the following:
-The Importance of the Adaptive Unconscious on Player Assessment.
-The Necessity for Blending Two Forms of Intelligence to Make Optimal Draft/Trade Selections.
-The Nature of "Pitcher Consciousness" and the Ultimate Approach to Player Development.
-The Impact of Suggestion and Suggestibility on the Snap Judgments.
-The Focal Secrets of Elite Performers.
-My Unique Coding System to Evaluate Prospects on the Mental Side.
And much more!
As a prospect thinks and focuses, so they perform. The same is true for Coaches and Scouts when it comes to prospect development.
