111: Niall O'Carroll: From Detective to Sports Psychologist working with 27 Olympic champions
Show Notes

Niall O’Caroll used to be in the Irish National Police for 18 years, then worked as a Performance Coach with British Gymnastics and as a Sports Psychologist with 27 individual Olympic champions in Canada, UK etc. Niall is now the global Chief of Partnerships at PepTalk, a team experience platform.

In this fascinating conversation, Niall spills all the beans:

- We talk about what it was like being in the police force in Ireland for the better part of two decades,

- How he got hired by the Canadian Olympic Committee, and what being an Olympic champion is actually like once the pomp and show is over

- What Niall has noticed to be the biggest trait most elite athletes have in common, and how us non-elite folks learn from them, especially during tough moments in our careers like layoffs and rejections
