What Are the 3 Sides to Every Sport?

I love this question. It’s from an exercise called “Empathy Storming” from the EQ2iQ Sports Level 3 deck. It’s all about encouraging people to share and see other answers people come up with.

The goal is to bring teams together once they’ve gone through and practiced the skills from Level 1 & 2.

There is no right answer and in fact, I’ve answered this question differently every time I’ve thought about it.

Today my answer is that they are: Physical, Emotional, and Mental.

  • Physical = fitness/sport skills (physical literacy)
  • Emotional = handling adversity/emotions (EQ)
  • Mental = sport smarts/rules (IQ)

What are your 3?
