The Culture of Silence in Coach-Athlete Relationships | Power Differentials Ep 1

Episode description

In this episode, we unpack how a culture of silence can impact personal mental health  and collective performance. From locker rooms to boardrooms, athletes and professionals often grapple with an atmosphere of fear that discourages open dialogue around critical issues. In this episode we discuss the impact of maintaining silence, both on the well-being of athletes and the broader sports community. Join us as we explore challenges, consequences, and paths towards breaking silence and fostering a more supportive environment.
