    By Mladen Jovanovic on 13/01/2020

    In this video, I will go more into these details and also provide an extension of this model, which I termed Circular Performance Model (CPM). CPM, in my opinion, better represent performance phenomenology we experience as coaches and athletes.

  • My Productivity System

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 13/10/2015
