Coaches, are the concepts in your head coming out of your players during competition? If not, there are two possible reasons. First, your concepts are not actually getting into the conscious brain of your players during practice. The first workshop covers this issue. Second, your players don’t know how to allow the concepts to come out from their unconscious brain during competition. The second workshop addresses this issue.

When it comes to coaching practice, there are five skills coaches can use to help a player improve their ability to understand and retain information. The reality is people already do these techniques, however, they also do techniques that hurt the player's ability to learn. Specifically, many coaches use the same method for training their players as what is used for training animals and the damage is lasting.
This workshop will help coaches understand the "why" behind the situations in which they are currently effective helping players learn and retain information during practice in order to focus and be more intentional with their methods in the future. Specifically, this presentation will show:
- How to be understood and more persuasive,
- Why some common techniques actually hinder peoples' ability to learn,
- How to shorten the learning curve,
- How to increase a player's ability to retain information.

Flow is "unlimited energy towards a purpose". This thought process is the goal of every athlete during competition and is also known as "being in the zone". When players Flow, they naturally avoid injury.
In order to help your players intentionally Flow, you must understand the six unique thought process issues and the specific response to each. Every time a coach is successful, it is because their team's issue matches up with the one (and sometimes two) technique(s) the coach consistently applies.
This presentation also covers the threats to Flow: choking, panicking, boredom, and fear. Specific measures to identify each are taught as well as the appropriate responses.

A May 2017 Harvard Business Review article ("Your Brain Can Only Take So Much Focus") showed the only way to operate your brain in a healthy manner is to "toggle" (Flow) between two thought processes. Not only is this the only way to avoid moments where we lose self-control (including addictive behavior), this process was identified as "the essence of leadership".
Today, leadership courses operate under the belief that since you are shown how to lead, that makes you a leader. A boss can lead. The proof that a person is a leader is they would have more energy while leading to the point they would never need a vacation in order to rest or recharge. The reality is that many coaches teach a form of leadership that wears the player out at 80™ during the time they play for the coach, only to have the player burn out after they have left the program. Unfortunately, the coach hurt that player more than he helped him.
This workshop will not only help the coach become a leader and have more energy at the end of the season, it will show the coach how to intentionally create leaders who are able to continually grow after they have left the program.
