As coaches, athletes, teachers and leaders, we often tend to get myopic within our domain and end up micromanaging instead of focusing on doing the simple things savagely well across the board.

Regardless of sport, no one trait by itself will ever ensure long-term success – a balanced mastery of fundamentals will.

Conscious Coaching trains athletes to adapt and adjust to new people, situations and obstacles. It’s about matching people with a process through development and a flexible roadmap instead of a rigid system. To do this, you must understand BOTH the art and the science of what you do as well as enhance your understanding of human nature.

Humans are the ultimate performance variable and learning how to develop them from the inside in a unique, ethical, and personal way is the ultimate competitive advantage.

“None of the tools or knowledge that we acquire mean anything if we cannot use them in a skillful and unique manner. The “HOW” matters just as much as the “WHAT” and the “WHY.”
