Coaching Programs: How We Work

It's our mission to help you or your organization consistently perform toward the upper range of your talent and skill regardless of the circumstances. To achieve that objective, we use time-tested, research-based techniques to give you the tools to think and act with unshakable confidence, Tiger Woods-like focus, and the utmost composure in high pressure, high visibility situations.

This doesn't happen overnight. But by working with us, you'll learn a systematic framework that provides a practical approach to developing powerful performance skills—giving you the mental toughness skills to function at a very high level even under the most adverse circumstances.

This is far from a "we say, you do" form of coaching. We use a highly interactive, collaborative approach to create a program that suits your unique needs and circumstances.

While the specifics of an individual program might vary, all the programs we develop for our clients include the following features:
  • Assessment
  • Goals and Planning
  • Plan Implementation
Assessment: Everybody needs a starting point. The coaching process begins with a structured conversation to get an accurate assessment of your current mindset. By discovering your strengths, talents, skills, and goals, we can objectively evaluate your limitations, identify your performance barriers, and address the factors interfering with your success. 

     "You can observe a lot just by watching." Yogi Berra

Some of the assessment tools we use may include: The Values in Action Signature Strengths inventory (VIA); the StrengthsFinder; the PsyCap Questionnaire (measures psychological capital), a Mental Toughness Questionnaire; and The Attentional & Interpersonal Style (TAIS) inventory, which measures the way individuals concentrate and interact with one another and specifies what makes people fail or succeed.

Goals and Plans
Success is measured by results, not intentions. With that thought in mind, we will work with you to establish clear, CREDIBLE goals and turn those into plans with realistic milestones, objectives, and deadlines. 

     "If you don't know where you are going, you will end up somewhere else." Yogi Berra 

Plan Implementation: Based upon your assessment and the goals you set and your needs, we will work with you to create a solid, individualized plan that may include any of the following:

Cognitive re-training: A time-proven method to elicit an awareness and then change negative thinking patterns that create fear and block success.

Strengths-Training: A systematic approach that identifies and accentuates your talents, values, and strengths to facilitate optimal performance.

Brain Training: Features many of the techniques used by champion athletes like Cue-Induced Visualization, Mental Imagery Rehearsal, Mental Programming, Concentration Meditation; Focusing strategies, the Enders Study/Rehearsal/Practice Routine, and others.

Relaxation Training: While a little stress can get the juices going and invigorate you, too much interferes with clear thinking and focus. By learning Systematic Desensitization and other research-based techniques, you can control how stress affects your performance and overall functioning.

Presentation Skills Training: Create a dynamic presence and shine in the spotlight by incorporating techniques derived from theater and communications experts.

Testimonial:

I have used some of the techniques Pamela taught me and find them most helpful. The visualizing techniques are especially helpful to me. I would highly recommend her workshops to any performer, and would personally like to take it again!
