Friday Round-Up: Pete Carroll and Dr. Michael Gervais Speak In Audible Original

In a chat hosted last night, Carroll and Gervais spoke with ESPN’s Mina Kimes in the Audible Original, “Compete to Create.”


Good afternoon, 12s.

Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today – Friday, July 10 – about your Seattle Seahawks:

Living and Leading Authentically

Are you ready to live and lead an authentic life? In their new Audible Original, "Compete to Create," Pete Carroll and Dr. Michael Gervais help answer this question and guide listeners deep into the psychology of training their mind for a variety of daily scenarios and experiences.

In a chat taking place yesterday evening that was live-streamed across Seahawks social media channels, Carroll and Gervais were joined by ESPN's Mina Kimes to speak more specifically on how these psychology tools and lessons are used within the Seahawks organization.

From learning about how high-performing athletes are able to talk and work their way through criticism, Carroll and Gervais use a variety of tools to ensure that Seahawks athletes are staying present, mindful and focused. Through mindfulness, Carroll helps athletes discover the best version of themselves and challenges them to apply those characteristics to help the team.

"We are a relationship-based organization," Carroll says. "You have to get to know the people around you… so that we can serve others and be the best supporter for them."

Carroll and Gervais also discuss the topic of optimism and how athletes like Russell Wilson manifest optimism on the field.

"Russell Wilson is a world-class optimist," remarks Carroll. "He has always affected what we're doing… He has always affected the players that he plays with, coaches that he works with… there has never been a time when he hasn't been optimistic."

With the general thought of "something good's about to happen," Carroll and Gervais discuss how this mindset and skill can dramatically change one's outlook, and even outcome.
