Krush Performance: Why Are We So Bad At Predicting Future Potential?

KP - PHOTO FOR RI SHOWThis week, we breakdown the incredible complexity of athlete and talent development and talent ID. We are joined by Dr. Joe Baker, Sport Scientist from York University.

How do genetics and environment influence what we become…how good we become and I ask the question: “Is Talent Real?”

If we can get a clear idea of what talent really is, can we get better at developing talent and identifying future potential? Collectively, we are not all that good at predicting future talent and potential.

Could it be we looking at the wrong factors? The wrong variables? Is predicting talent simply too complex and unpredictable to be predictable?

We find out as we discuss all of this and more on this week’s jam-packed episode of Krush Performance
