Career Opportunities -for qualified people to
transition into coaching.
For the great majority of
athletes and others alike, getting regular access to a sports
psychologist is a difficult and expensive
process. For younger athletes and those without
the resources working with a sports mental skills development expert
is viewed as an impossible dream.
Sports Mental Skills training is
generally seen as something only successful
athletes or the rich can afford. The end result is that many
outdated information or questionable, 'magical' solutions for mental skills
development from Self-Help books or the internet.
The "professionalization" sport.
Physical conditioning and technique have performance ceilings, so it
is natural before those limits are reached to leverage all that
mental skills coaching can provide. Today, mental skills coaching
stands as equal partners with physical conditioning and technical
training as sportspeople strive to take advantage of every opportunity to
achieve their goals. It follows, there is a huge, ever growing, global
marketplace of school athletes, social
athletes, professional athletes and other
professional groups in great need
of boosting their mental skills to provide that edge to enter the
winner's circle. Another key factor in the popularization of mental
skills coaching is that the skills learnt can also be successfully
applied to other areas of a person's (professional or private) life.
The Bottom Line: Mental Strength – Creating the mental capacity to transform
potential into a process of being.
The need for all athletes to: identify how their
mental strengths and weaknesses impact their performance and
well-being; obtain new mental capabilities and, learn how to boost
their strengths and strengthen their weaknesses.
As the sports world continues to quicken its
pace, an athlete (no matter how naturally talented) will be left
running on the spot if they're not continually developing their
mental capacity to succeed.

The importance and nature of mental
skills varies markedly across different
sports. A number of recent research
studies have confirmed that many of
today’s athletes are really struggling
to develop specific mental skills to
place them in the winners circle.
Most athletes are well aware of level

self-motivation, goal setting etc).
Unfortunately, access to personalized
training in Psychosomatic Skills (level

Today, there is strong agreement amongst
trainers and athletes that mental skills
training can help boost
performance. However, trainers /

not having the latest, academic, neuro-behavioral

readily available, practical, exercises
that can be easily
practiced by their athletes.

Difference between high performance, neuro-behavioral coaching and

coaching is a blanket term incorporating whole
brain, mind, body approach. Whereas mental /

What is High Performance Neuro-Behavioral Coaching?
Mainstream sports coaches are primarily trained
to be goal and skill focused. Whereas the High
Performance Behavioral Coaches use a brain-mind-body
approach to address higher level developmental needs. From the
athlete's point of view,
it's simply about the kind of assistance they need
eg; holistic, brain-mind-body approach or specific, sport skills coaching or
This advanced Course takes a holistic (Brain-Mind-Body) approach.
The need to understand the
relationship between brain, mind and body.
The three aren’t just connected, but rather a single unit,
integrated at the cellular level. This knowledge is crucial
to a person's performance and well-being.
The Sports Behavioral Sciences have been significantly updated by
powerful, life-changing contributions from
brain-mind-body medicine, emerging neuroscientific
technologies and the latest, evidence-based methodologies
from Applied Cognitive Neuroscience and
falls under the umbrellas of behavioral
science and performance
It provides unique
insights into the brain-mind-body connection, brain plasticity, emotion, attention,
peak performance and
Focus and emotional balance is the key to peak performance in all
areas. Sports coaches are well aware that Peak Performance occurs when a person is totally alert and
focused while maintaining a relaxed physical body.
A person’s ability to focus and concentrate is hindered when stress
and tension is carried in the body.
Behavioral Coaching increases
resilience and an individual’s ability to deal with stress. It
improves mental clarity, decision making capabilities and focus.

detail in the course.
Off-the-shelf, brain / mind training programs focus just on
cognitive training which cannot affect the brain-mind-body
union. This approach only provides a modest boost to routine mental activities, cannot affect body changes and does
not provide knowledge about yourself and how to self-coach
yourself to higher levels of physical and mental performance
Mental Skills programs must be
tailored to the specific needs of athletes relative to the
sport they are engaged in. Generic,
computer-based cognitive-training software are simply low
level brain games that provide little proven benefit. The
promise is that if you adhere to a prescribed regimen of the
one-size-fits-all cognitive exercises, you will
fundamentally improve your mind and brain.

Many recent studies confirm the “Secret
Ingredient” to Athletic Performance..
Professional athletes at the highest levels of
competition use the above brief daily mental
exercises, including a major US league baseball
team—one that recently won the World Series. There
are PGA golfers using the techniques to cut strokes
off their game, to calm their nerves and steady
their hands and NFL players who use them to get back
on the field after injury faster than the
The fact is, a growing number of elite athletes worldwide are
using them, with great results. So why aren’t they
talking about it to everyone? The reasons are
obvious. First of all, professional sports is so
highly competitive that even a slight advantage can
make all the difference to crossing the finishing
line first. The course's powerful, 15 minute,
personalized, daily mental exercises are worth
millions of dollars to elite professional athletes,
not to mention massive recognition and prestige. If
you had that advantage, would share it with your
Bottom line is that coaches sign confidentiality
agreements with their athletes not to disclose the
work they are engaged in together. However, there are
numerous, research studies published in leading
scientific journals (cited in our course) confirming the
significant, sustainable results generated by the
techniques presented in our unique program.
Technical Skills - similar to the "Motor
Skill Competence" -are the particular

in a sport.

Mental Skills are tools for the mind and are
under the umbrella of Personal and
Professional Development. They can also be
viewed as internal capabilities that help a
person control their minds efficiently and
consistently as they execute

coaching provides an advanced toolkit (the
methods and techniques) to not only develop
skills, but also to generate positive,
goal-producing behaviors. Many of these mind
skills have a foundation in the human

Mental Skills also incorporate:
a) Psychological Skills (often used to
describe mental skills). Psychological
skills training refers to consistent
practice of mental skills.
b) Tactical Skills - like "decision-making

to choose the right thing to do in different
A mental skill enables you to regulate

The nature of the relationship between a
person’s state of mind and his or her
performance depends on three prime factors:
1. strength of mind / mental skills and
character / personality,
2. the specific task at hand, and
3. the wider task environment.
Just as physical skills are addressed on a
daily basis, mental skills coaching needs to
be integrated into the training schedule and
practiced on a regular basis.
Research has confirmed that increased use of
advanced, neuro-behavioral mental skill
techniques is associated with enhanced
performance. Survey based research has also
indicated that increased use of advanced,
next-generation, mental skills is associated
with successful competitive performances in
either higher or lower competitive levels
(e.g., international vs. regional) of sport.
