Steve has an amazing resume, and story in high performance and sports from his start with the Marine Corps post 9/11 - to working in the NFL with the Browns and Chargers -to his sports sabbatical where he gained a depth of experience across different organisations in Europe - such as Chelsea FC, Barcelona FC, Real Madrid, McLaren F1, etc.
We open the dialogue with an insight into Steve's life in American football, and what he has taken from this pandemic period.
We talk about core strengths and core constraints in sports, innovation - and talent development, amongst other interesting topics.
According to Mr Gera..."sports is the most important of the least important things. Let's elevate it".
The Los Angeles Dodgers won their first World Series in 32 years this year. Gains Group is part of a new joint venture with the Dodgers and their investment arm Elysian Park Ventures called 'BreakAway', a sport data exchange that creates, collects, and combines club and athlete data to help clubs better understand and position the athletes. This looks like a real game-changer in the world of performance science. Reach out to Steve for more info!
