The 5 Selfs of Human Performance (only available in Series; no longer available as an individual webinar)

To quote baseball great Yogi Berra, 90% of the game is half-mental. The same can be said for human performance in a variety of endeavors including triathlon. This webinar addresses the mental side of the performance equation by describing the 5 Self’s of Human Performance: self-motivation, self-efficacy, self-esteem, self-confidence and self-discipline. As a result of this session, you will be able to describe the impact of each “self” on human performance. You will also be able to identify specific steps coaches and athletes can take to boost motivation, efficacy, esteem, confidence and discipline.


An important role of a leader is to create and foster a thriving leadership development culture for his/her team. Building this kind of culture produces growing leaders who embody their organization's values. Leaders who want to transform their organizational culture cannot have a meeting about it and post a new set of values on the wall. They must act the way they want their culture to be and show the way for others to follow. In this session, participants will learn best practices to build a healthy leadership development culture, and model values for teams to follow.

A recent survey of endurance coaches reported that 60% of coaches are doing it as a part-time business. Half of that group (30%) said that they have the goal of becoming a full-time coach. What is standing in the way of you taking the leap to make that happen? This webinar will address the common issues that coaches are facing while sitting on the fence of part-time vs. full-time coaching. 

What are the simple steps you can do to take it to the next level? If you are passionate about helping others and have always wanted to understand how to turn that passion and energy into a full-time lifestyle business, this is a webinar you will not want to miss.

Learn to create a sustainable coaching brand that sets you and your coaching business apart.
