Keynote Presentation: When Talent Isn’t Enough

Mastering the ‘People Side’ of Sport 

AthleticsAsk any coach what keeps them up at night, and rarely is it technical or physical issues. Most often it’s on the ‘people side’. Few c
oaches, if any, are immune to dealing with athletes that ‘just don’t get it’, communication problems, conflict or ‘personality’ challenges, especially with the current generation of athletes. Can these ‘issues’ be dealt with in such a way as to deliver improved performance when it matters the most? Yes they can!

If you are the type of coach who knows there is more to your program’s success than simply having ‘talented’ athletes, then this workshop is for you. Understanding what makes your athletes ‘tick’ and what you need to create to achieve their full potential. When you attend this workshop, you will leave with a proven framework and key strategies to ensure the factors contributing to your program’s success are ticked off, before ‘issues’ have the chance to undermine your season. This workshop includes key models and real-life case studies of these models in practice.

The key learning objectives for session participants are:

  • Understand the framework to quickly get to know your athletes and be able to bring out their individual best
    • Know how to build team chemistry within your squad of athletes.
      • Explore the key strategies for starting your season in the best way possible to ensure a successful competitive season.
