Mental Performance Consultation
All services are facilitated by the consultant, which includes providing original handouts and experiential activities.
Individual Performance Consultation:
This service provides the client with a stronger understanding of how to consistently perform at an elite level. Through the integration of skills tailored to assist in the preparation and execution of the performance, the client learns how to create a personal, elite-level performance culture. This individual consultation can be initiated by the athlete or by a referral from a coach, parent or employer. Traditionally, this service takes place in a formal one-on-one setting in a private location. It can also take place as part of impromptu conversations during natural breaks in training, competition and professional settings.
A second significant component of the consultation work is observation of the client. It is important for the consultant to be present to observe the individual in the context of group dynamics, which can play out differently in different environments. This can take place in a training, competition or professional setting, each of which could impact a client’s overall performance success in various ways. This includes but is not limited to observing interpersonal relationships, as well as, superior-subordinate dynamics (e.g., coach-player, boss-employee). This service will result in a greater awareness around the individual client’s role and the performance culture.
Team/Group Performance Consultation:
In order for a group to consistently perform at an elite level, it is important to provide a setting for its members to periodically share results and learn from the group’s overall performance. The objective is to explore ways in which to enhance the performance output of each member through increased awareness of successful habits and routines. This usually takes place in a formal group setting in an on-site, private meeting room. However, the consultant is flexible about having the meetings take place in non-traditional settings out “in-the-field” in order to meet the needs of the group.
In addition to the formal team consultation services, the consultant observes the group in a training, competition or professional setting. It is important for the consultant to be present to observe the team dynamics that play out in different performance environments. This includes, but is not limited to, observing interpersonal relationships, as well as superior-subordinate dynamics (e.g., coach-player, boss-employee). This service will result in a greater awareness around the proper roles of the individual members and a stronger understanding of the performance culture.
