A Case for Athletic Coaches to use a Personal Coach:
In the following excerpt, please substitute Chief Executive Officer with Athletic Coach:
“…A new study from Stanford and executive coaching firm The Miles Group shows that while two-thirds of chief executives don’t get any coaching or leadership advice from outside their companies, nearly 100% of those bosses say they wish that they did.
“Even the best-of-the-best CEOs have their blind spots and can dramatically improve their performance with an outside perspective weighing in,” says Miles Group CEO Stephen Miles in a statement. “We are moving away from coaching being perceived as ‘remedial’ to where it should be something that improves performance, similar to how elite athletes use a coach.”
…”CEOs Just Want to Get Coached”

A pre-assessment determines the group’s needs. We custom design a ½ day or full day workshop using initiatives and group dialogues to generate sustainable learning that can be integrated into the day-to-day work effort.
4. Staff Retreat
Off-site staff retreats offer an invaluable opportunity for your entire staff to pause and step back from their everyday routine. Time together in a new environment provides an opportunity to assess how things are being done. Fresh perspectives allow the possibility of discovering different, more effective ways of working together, connecting with athletes, and elevating your team’s play. Additionally, a powerful and meaningful retreat allows individual members to recognize how their way of being contributes to or distracts from the groups desired objectives.
5. Team Synergy (workshop full day or ½ day)
We offer engaging team building activities that get everyone up and moving indoors or out. More importantly, the initiatives create a field to cultivate, examine, and discuss performance factors including: Trust, Problem-solving, Communication, Integrity, and Commitment.
Our work uses initiatives to generate sustainable learning that can be integrated back to the playing field. The activities serve as a metaphor to draw forth inner and outer dynamics and principles impacting the individual and the team. We conduct a pre-program needs assessment to customize the event to meet your specific needs.
