Redefining Limits: The Hidden Value of Hard

Redefining Limits: The Hidden Value of Hard

By MarioSeptember 27, 2012 Coast Guard, Leadership, Learning, Speeches

There is a value to pushing the limits and expectations on students that has been lost because the training community failed to define the value inherent in these methods. In not applying a performance objective to fear and stress, many programs (including basic training and others) gave up a piece of what mattered most. Drawing on research from the U.S. Navy, the opinions of noted psychologists, and on his own experience, CWO Mario Vittone tells us why yelling at recruits is valuable, why stress and fear have a place in the classroom, and why asking for more than is humanly possible sometimes makes everyone safer and more effective.
