Sports Performance Consulting Session

Below describes a typical session of a coach working together with a performance enhancement consultant.  

We do one on one private individual performance consulting sessions.  Performance consulting sessions can also be done in groups. 

The first session involves gathering information on a coach’s performance.  We introduce performance enhancement skills to improve the performance of not only the coach but their athletes as well.  We also establish a plan for future sessions to address issues that prevent the coach and his or her athletes from performing at their peak. 

The topics frequently covered include motivation, focusing on proper aspects of performance, effective communication, providing feedback properly, setting goals properly, types of practice, and proper training.  Other topics include importance rest and recovery, recognizing mini-successes, injury prevention/recovery, and burnout prevention/recovery.
