Mindset First Workshop

A New Way for Athletes, Coaches, and Parents to Approach Sports & Life

Today’s athletes are surrounded by constant comparisons, expectations, and pressures to perform. As such, many athletes struggle with overthinking, self-doubt, and performance anxiety. These challenges don’t stop in sport, they carry into any area of life where being at your best matters.

Fluffy and cookie-cutter advice like “be positive,” “don’t worry about it,” and “just be confident” doesn’t work. These might be the mental states you are trying to achieve, but they are not the ‘how to’.

It’s time to flip our approach to sport — this applies to athletes, coaches, and even parents.

Instead of focusing all of our energy on what we want to achieve, we need to prioritize who we want to be and how we want to show up. By ‘slowing down’ and gaining clarity on your inner world, you get grounded, centered, and ready to tackle the outer world.

This new approach is all about taking control and being Mindset First.

This is the approach we use when coaching professional athletes to show up at their best day-in and day-out. And in this insightful and interactive 60 min workshop, a CEP coach pulls back the curtain and shares the four fundamental strategies (diagram below) so you can you can break free from the weight of results, play with confidence, and perform when it matters most.

*This is the main workshop we deliver. If a team want’s the 4 part workshop series, then this is still the first workshop.

The 4 Fundamental Strategies:

  1. Alter Ego – This strategy is at the core of the 4 fundamental strategies. It helps athletes define & contrast their best mindset that is in the Zone from their worst mindset – being in their own head.
  2. Reset Routine – One of the most impactful strategies utilized during practices and games to clear their mind & activate their best self Alter Ego.
  3. Personal Scorecard – Mostly athletes beat themselves up and have an ineffective reflection process. To counter this limitation, this strategy is used after practices and games to improve self-awareness and ensure consistent growth.
  4. Mental Preparation – The final of the 4 fundamental strategies helps athletes set clear intentions & ensure they show up as their best self.

These later 3 strategies create a continuous Prepare-Play-Reflect Process that maximizes the athletes ability to show up as their best self.
