This workshop explores the most effective ways for you to help your students and athletes overcome the “dark side of thinking” and gain top performance.

Harnessing the enormous power of the brain can be summed up in one word…focus.

This workshop helps students and athletes develop focus factors that will teach them how training ”smart” can be far more effective than training ”hard”. 


Course 4: Mind Building

Maximizing performance means learning how to challenge your mind effectively to improve your grade point average or your athletic involvement.

Learning how to “turn up” the mental intensity is not a matter of emotions, but of mental fitness. This workshop will show teachers and coaches how to inspire their students and athletes to take advantage of brain strategies that let them “finish the job” toward their best efforts and results.

Build success by developing a “mental game plan” to train the brains of your students.

Organizing a mental game plan will help your students and athletes take charge of their thinking process… leading to their most successful performance! This workshop will help you organize and adapt the same mental approaches in your own practice that are used by the best mental and athletic performers. 


Course 6: The Coaches’ Mindset 

Two weeks online/10 Contact Hours/1.0 Continuing Education Units (CEU's)

February 14 – February 28, 2020


Coaches and teachers must also develop their own mental muscles to be their best!

High quality teaching is the foundation of great coaching and the lessons of winning coaches are goals for all teachers. Simply put- “coaches teach and teachers coach”. This course will challenge teachers and coaches “to think” in better ways and improve their programs as a result.
