"There are no sprints to excellence." ~Angela Duckworth
For individuals, Mental Performance Coaching focuses on self-awareness and mental training. The way we think affects how we feel and what we focus on, which determines our behaviors, and ultimately impacts our ability to perform to our potential as well as achieve the results we want and expect.
Our mind affects our performance whether we want it to or not. For example, in an intense pressure situation, confidence is going to be a key ingredient for success, but your mind may be focusing on what could go wrong instead of reasons for why you should believe things could go right. So mental performance coaching will help you learn how to adopt and maintain a mindset that contributes to more consistent optimal performance.
Getting your best performance requires working on and improving your mental game...how you prepare for, think about, react to, and evaluate performance situations. Whether you're trying to get back to the performance you once had (performance restoration) or improve your performance to get closer to your full potential (performance enhancement), mental performance coaching gives you the tools to put you in a better position to succeed.
And, for teams/organizations, understanding and working on the dynamics of the group (relationships/interaction and ability to work together effectively) as well as clearly and intentionally identifying and maintaining team culture can have positive effects on both individual and group enjoyment, engagement, cohesion, satisfaction, and performance. The goal is to help everyone get and stay on the same page, which is essential if the team is going to reach and consistently perform up its full potential.
Though individual and team/organization performance are very complex, they are the result of a very simple equation. The goal of mental performance coaching is to assist with reducing and preparing for the potential faulty processes (for example, conflict amongst team members, lack of clarity regarding team/organization culture) that could get in the way of aligning performance with potential.
Thus, the ultimate goal is to help individuals and teams/organizations thrive and more consistently reach their full potential.
