In the world of competitive athletics winning is no longer just about strength, speed and endurance. Today’s champions need more than just “gutting it out”. On the global stage of competition, winners need to have mental speed, strength and endurance paired with their physical talents for optimum performance. Gaining this vital edge is essential for coaches and athletes to create world class performance.

CEOs on the world stage have long utilized coaches to help them perform as “best in class” in the winner take all world of business. Why shouldn’t you and your team benefit from the same kinds of professional and personal development?

Becoming and Maintaining a Great Coach
Executive coaching for coaches – Timeline and number of sessions customized to each coach by Doc Robyn – Being a great coach isn’t just about where you put X’s and O’s and the techniques you provide to your athletes. You are part psychologist, part mom, part dad, a little bit nutritionist, a lot of shoulder to cry on and toss in teaching study skills. You may or may not succeed using the school of hard knocks as your guide. Instead, do what powerful, successful executives do – get yourself a coach who can show you how to manage the people part of your team. (Available in person and via Skype)
Brainstorming/bouncing ideas – Doc Robyn available on retainer – Sometimes we all need someone with an expertise that we don’t have to address an issue. Give yourself the ability to pick up the phone and get the interpersonal, team development, effective communication and productive conflict support you and your team need, no waiting, no wondering.
Champion Performance Development Boot camps/seminars – In development – Join coaches, parents and athletes from around the country in a 2-day interactive learning environment.
