During the course you will LEARN :
- How to SPECIFICALLY apply the KEY principles of the MIND FACTOR in the REAL WORLD. How to incorporate specific tools and techniques to your own INDIVIDUAL clients
- How to apply the FOUR QUADRANTS in a very specific ‘Project Putting’, taking putting as a specific area to develop, you will be part of your own project to design specific interventions to help players in perhaps the most mentally demanding aspects of the game of golf. All of the techniques in this project CAN and HAVE been applied to OTHER sports making this an experiential journey with MULTIPLE applications
- You will learn about the fascinating research into the phenomenon of ‘Quiet Eye’ training in sport. How a quiet eye can = a quiet mind and the destructive nature of poor gaze control in many sporting situations
- The ‘quality of your LIFE will be determined by the quality of your QUESTIONS’ is a mantra I have lived by in my coaching for the last 10 years. During this course, you will have the chance to see how much more we can develop our coaching skills with this simple but PROFOUND premise. How you construct and deliver QUALITY QUESTIONS may well be the SINGLE biggest factor in your success or failure as a MIND FACTOR coach
- Understanding the principle of E-Motion. Emotions are ENERGY in MOTION or they SHOULD be! Holding onto, resisting and retaining NEGATIVE emotion and energy is a key factor in player stagnation as opposed to development. You will learn the SKILL of releasing emotion in the sporting environment in a practical way that can have INSTANT results for your players. Negative emotion WILL destroy movement patterns, skills and learnt game plans. Master THIS skill as a coach and you will have a UNIQUE skill that sets you apart from your competitors
- The ‘myth’ of the experts, how perceived expert analysis on TV can and WILL give your players a totally incorrect MENTAL MODEL of how to improve and develop their game. You will begin to understand the need to have in place ‘Three Phases’ to every sporting discipline and how a LACK of understanding WILL hold back progress and functionality
- How to ‘score’ the mental game. It is of very little use to have in place a mental game development process WITHOUT the ability to MONITOR and SCORE your athletes progress. This is perhaps THE difference that makes the difference with The MIND FACTOR. Install a simple process that is fun to play but will give your players immediate and gratifying feedback as to the progress they are making
- The ‘yips’ are a terrible affliction for any sportsman or woman and can END a career. Understand that the yips are NOT ‘all in the mind’ and how to develop a process and a programme to help your clients first of all UNDERSTAND what is going on and then, more importantly, to create a PLAN of action to deal with and recover from this game stopping affliction
- Your clients and YOU. How to build a solid foundation of rapport and respect to enhance the PROBABILITY of your success with your client. Understand the value of the LISTENING skill that we ALL need to improve upon. When a client feels understood, there is the basis of TRUST which enhances ALL further intervention. Without rapport, respect and trust it is VERY difficult to make progress NO matter how effective your techniques may be. Trust and communication at a deeper level lead to REMARKABLE results
- The ‘MIND FACTOR Profile’. On the course, we will take you through the SIMPLE but efficient MIND FACTOR profiling tool that has been used with clients from beginners to multiple Major winners. With the profile, you will have a HEAD start before you even begin to work with your clients. You will have begun the PROCESS of change by having at your fingertips an understanding of WHY and HOW your client has arrive at your doorstep and the patterns and habits they have currently displayed in their sport that underpin their current progress or LACK of it
- The little understood and even less applied ‘Pygmalion Effect’ and how the LAW of EXPECTATION will have an effect on EVERY session that you carry out with your players. Is your current CONTEXT and ENVIRONMENT setting you up for failure? Are you missing the HIDDEN triggers of INFLUENCE and PERSUASION that your current environment will provide. Are you LEAKING the opportunity to change people for the better? Is the LAW of EXPECTATION working against you on a DAILY and PREDICTABLE basis? This is a fascinating part of the course and will provide you with the opportunity to change some factors that have been holding you back but are currently ‘out of sight’
- How the people you are with, the environment you inhabit and the expectations of others WILL influence your future success or failure. Some tough decisions MAY need to be taken but at the very least you will be able to help your players develop an AWARENESS of the some of the critical factors of influence that COULD be holding them back. Without this information, a LOT of conventional interventions will have NO impact whatsoever. The ‘ties that bind’ need to be understood and, if necessary, broken down and changed to facilitate long term development
- How to build your programs, develop a mindset that is not about instant fix but a DEVELOPMENT plan that transforms in the LONG TERM. You become a coach who develops players to help them release their TRUE long term potential. You help them to create a resilient mindset that will ALWAYS bounce back despite the inevitable setbacks the game throws at you
- The ‘client project’. During the course you will be part of a specific client project where real world scenarios are discussed and dissected before an APPROPRIATE set of interventions are implemented. The key to progress as a MIND FACTOR coach is DOING and EXPERIENCING. You need to DO to EXPERIENCE and it is only with experience does your true knowledge base develop. You gain the kind of knowledge that you can DO as opposed to just talk about. Many people have academic knowledge and theories but they never leave their ivory tower to put that knowledge to the test in the only environment that counts – the REAL WORLD
- What will REALLY make us happy? The latest scientific research and the surprising conclusions to what WILL and WON’T make us happy. Often, the things we are chasing are just illusions and the very journey we are on becomes a chore. To be really successful the JOURNEY needs to have as much influence as the perceived destination or outcome. Yet, when we are happy with our sport, when we are enjoying our sport, we tend to be surprisingly GOOD at it
- How our brains RESIST change and what to do about it as a coach. Many people talk about change, they WANT change but they just don’t understand how the human brain is wired and how we tend to KEEP the status quo. We need to be bale out or outwit our hard wired tendency to stay the same and maintain our existing habits. The very latest research will be discussed on HOW we can INFLUENCE and PERSUADE people to change for their own future good
- The secret rule of ‘Role Projection’ and the use of SPECIFIC language patterns designed to influence at both a CONSCIOUS and SUB CONSCIOUS level. The techniques that have been used by some of the greats of influence and persuasion are discussed and then developed into a PERSONAL and PRACTICAL set of interventions. This specific area is a stand out part of the course and worth the fee of the course alone as it WILL make you a more successful coach and agent of change in those around you.
