What Winning Teams Get Right Playbook

Top sporting performance, whether on the track, field, pool or court, or on the management side, relies on many important variables being executed at the highest level and in unison.

The most successful teams achieve because they are deliberate in their approach, believe in certain performance philosophies, and have systems and tools that drive performance. In this playbook, we explain each performance philosophy and the practical models we use to put these philosophies into action.

Coaching Philosophy Workbook

Coaching Philosophy Workbook

Your Complete Development Guide

Coaching Philosophy Workbook

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.

Team Culture


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.

People+Sport Magazines

We were recently asked why our magazine is called People+Sport and not the other way round. The answer is simple and reason deliberate, because people come first. Read about World Class Olympic and Professional Coaches, Real People in Sport, Women leading the industry, and Top University and Coach Education Programs.

The Big Book of Inspirational Quotes for Sport

Finding a great quote can turn your day around, give you a new breath of motivation, or even change your life and the philosophy you live it by. Quotes are powerful as in a few words they capture what can otherwise take a paragraph to describe.

We know finding the time to search for that perfect quote can be hard. So, we took the time for you and gathered inspiring quotes especially for sports people, for any occasion. What started as a small collection has continued to grow and has now amassed to over 440 quotes.
