The 4 stage process for lasting change and development
Stage 1: Unconscious/Incompetent
- Clarify the goal/result: ebook
- Raise self-awareness: Video tape player's shot
Step 2: Conscious/Incompetent
- Create a training/development plan to execute skill in a non-competitive environment.
Step 3: Conscious/Competent
Description of stage: This stage involves a player that can perform a skill in a training environment, but struggles to execute during competitive situations. For instance, many players are good shooters during stand-still shooting drills. They may have nice shooting mechanics during drills, but everything changes during competitive situations. This is common during the development journey. The problem arises when trying to transfer the skill from the practice/training environment.
Stage 4: Unconscious/Competent
Description of stage: This stage is characterized by the player executing a skill without having to think about it. The skill has become a habit ingrained into the mind of the player. One of the greatest benefits of Stage 4 is that a player can use their valuable and limited "working memory" to focus on the game.
