Performance Through People
We’re yet to hear anyone attribute success to their equipment or their training program. Most often at the elite level, success is attributed to the ‘intangibles’. It’s team chemistry, strong leadership, effective communication, high standards of behavior demanded and maintained, and a persistent drive towards a common goal, that sets the best apart.
Focusing on these critical elements is not just for aspiring teams. All of our most successful teams. with the most experienced coaches, continually search for the most effective ways to address the intangibles. In this handbook, we share with you the fundamentals to get right. Think of it as the People playbook, the how-to on performance through people.
DISC IN SPORT
The ‘DISC in Sport Workbook’ is all about taking the knowledge of DISC behavioral profiling and putting it into action within your sporting environment. It brings together your ability to understand and manage your own behaviors with your ability to understand the behavior and needs of others. It positions you to work with, influence and interact with people more effectively, improve communication and ultimately your results. This is a game changer in sport.

WORKBOOK - The Complete Development Guide
Coaches are constantly told that having a well-defined Coaching Philosophy is a critical component of a successful career. BUT, it can be a challenge to develop on your own and it takes time to evolve.
We’ve taken years of experience, interviews with leading coaches, research and testing to formulate this workbook for your benefit. Be guided step-by-step through this important process.
It can be difficult to find a resource that can effectively guide your sports team through the potential pitfalls of culture. Our latest eBook is designed to take you step by step through the four distinct types of culture, which are aligned to culture models that researchers at the University of Michigan have confirmed to exist within a corporate organization.
In our eBook, we define team culture, look into what effects your team’s culture, and also discuss how you assess and measure your team’s culture with the four DISC Culture Styles; Dominance Culture, Influence Culture, Steadiness Culture and the Conscientious Culture. We look at what characterizes each culture, what each culture does and does not value, discuss how different athletes will feel in each culture, and how to tailor your coaching for the unique culture of your team.
