We give talks and workshops to schools, parents, coaches, administrators, and other professionals. While we value our one-time talks and workshops, for some programs and organizations an ongoing consultative relationship is desired. In these situations, we may schedule a series of meetings over time to evaluate programs and help initiate change.

Talks are typically given in the evenings. They are very interactive and involve an extensive question and answer period. Power Point, video aids, and case scenarios are central. These evening talks are given for approximately 45 minutes with a 45 minute Q & A period to follow.

Work shops are either 3 and ½ hours (HALF-DAY) or 6 and ½ hours (FULL-DAY). These workshops include extensive dialogue among leader and participants, short group exercises, occasional role-play, Power Point and video aids, and handouts. Frequent Q & A throughout.

Managing the Pressure to Perform:
Helping Your Child Perform Well on and off the Field

Travel teams, early specialization, daily practices, and competitive tryouts are dominating our recreational and school sports programs across the country at all levels. While there is much attention given to the pressures our sporting culture places on athletes, parents are in need of support to guide their young athletes through these challenging times and endeavors, particularly as athletes move from one developmental stage to the next. In this talk, the Three-Step-Approach (Know Your Child, Know Yourself, and Know Your Child’s Environment) will be reviewed as a means to help parents navigate this unpredictable and demanding sports environment in the service of helping their children achieve to their best ability while developing strong and lasting character. (For parents of youth, high school, or collegiate athletes). Evening Workshop.
