Proven sports profiling for athletes, coaches and professionals
Why Athlete Assessments?

We are experts in the ‘people side’ of sport.

Sport is played by people, coached by people and managed by people, so it’s imperative to get the people side of sport right.

We work with you, strengthening what you’ve already established to further develop the performance of your people. While we’re best known for our profiling and team dynamics consulting using the AthleteDISCCoachDISC and Sports ManagerDISC, we do more than just assessments.

If you don’t have the people side of your sport right, you’re missing out on a massive competitive advantage.

Where so many other factors in high-performance sport are very similar, it is how well the ‘people side’ is managed that differentiates the mediocre and truly great. DISC Profiling is the most effective tool to get the people side right, and our Team Programs take your teams’ performance to the next level, allowing you to get ahead and stay ahead.

With the Team Program we complement the use of Athlete Assessments’ DISC Profiles with a series of consultations with Bo Hanson to debrief the results and focus on how to best implement with your team to gain a lasting impact. The aim is always to ensure that the information from the DISC profiling is useful and put into practice. The consultations ensure that you are maximizing the value of the investment and focus specifically on your team. We also provide you with a big package of coach resources (including the Coach’s Playbook, DISC Card Game and lots more) and videos etc. This program is all about making it effective in practice and competition – and importantly, getting results now and into the future!

Commit to taking your coaching and team performance to new heights.

Coaches demand it, teams need it, sporting organizations continually look for it, and our communities yearn for it. Leadership underpins every great success story and leaves a gaping hole when it’s lacking. 

Leadership and how well the ‘people side’ of sport is handled directly impacts whether the team wins or loses, whether people are loyal to the program or leave, and overall how much people enjoy their sport. And yet professional develop and leadership training is often neglected or not given the time and resources it needs.

Whether you’re updating an existing program or launching a new initiative, Athlete Assessments’ DISC Profiles can further enhance your program. Rely on our quality program content or use the assessments to complement what you are already delivering.
