The way I like to view team performance is that irrespective of what team or competition it is, every season is like a new jigsaw. The pieces are the players, backroom team, the physical preparation, the systems, the tactics, and the environment they operate in. How we piece that jigsaw together is heavily influenced by our biases, experiences, or perspective.
“Widen the lens to add greater value”
People have different roles, experiences, abilities, tactics, together with different opponents and rules. The challenge for everyone involved is to ensure those jigsaw pieces fit together. What is successful with one team will not necessarily work with another.
The purpose of any club, manager, coach or trainer is to help the athlete and team, perform at a high level on a consistent basis. Include the ‘Jigsaw Approach’ as part of your preparations for 2022.

Paudie Kissane: Athlete Development & Performance
Interested in learning more, contact me.
I have engaged with Paudie in relation to a number of underage teams, specific players and squads from club to development squad level in recent times. His advice have been exceptional additions, a highlight, to many of my teams seasons and to myself as a coach bringing an injection of freshness, unparalleled experience and attention to detail.
Through initial phone calls and during his time working with the teams and individuals he would always discuss, explain and challenge the philosophy, principles and ideas surrounding the targets of the sessions. It always meant that his contribution had a more long lasting positive effect on my coaching and the team’s and athletes performance. Paudie is an extremely impressive communicator, meaning solutions to aspects of athlete development and the sport performance and their importance are clear, simple and concise.
Players have always come away with an increased awareness with regards to their performance and roles with greater confidence and enthusiasm. I would highly recommend Paudie in any aspect of coaching and guidance for any athlete, team or coach who want to be better, who want to succeed and meet the greatest potential they can.
Paudie’s preparation, level of thought, and overall attention to detail is always exceptional.
What sets him apart, however, is that he has the knowledge and experience to back up that preparation, and the ability to implement it.
His coaching is always game-specific and worthwhile. He can bring players to a totally new standard.
