Elite Team Programs

It’s often state of the art equipment, multi-million dollar facilities or the latest technology that grabs people’s attention. Yet when we look at the teams who achieve success time and time again, it’s rarely due to their hardware.

“Developing a winning team culture is not a rite of passage. It is a process requiring deliberate planning, careful execution and steadfast focus.”

Equipment doesn’t win Championships.
People do.

One of the benefits of working with so many different teams each year is the continuous insights gained into what really makes the difference for sustained sporting success. Bringing a group of people together to forge a high performing team is no simple exercise. It doesn’t happen by itself, nor is it a ‘matter of time’. The best coaches understand the intricacies, focus and persistence it takes.

Consistent themes emerge when look at what it takes to be successful as a team:

Being deliberate in growing team culture

Setting and maintaining high standards on a daily basis

Engaging athletes to take personal responsibility for their behavior and results

Taking a genuine interest and care for athletes as people first

While team development and culture are enormous topics, we’ve captured the essence of what is most impactful to improve sporting performance with our Team Programs. 

No matter the size of your team, we tailor a Team Program to match your exact needs. We complement the DISC profiling (any combination of the AthleteDISC, CoachDISC and Sports ManagerDISC Profiles) with a series of consultations overtime to debrief the results and to focus on how to best implement and use the results with your team. We also provide you with a big package of coach resources (including the Coach’s Playbook, DISC Card Game and lots more), have the option for a leadership boost for your captains, and look after full administration and support. The consultations ensure that you are maximizing the value of the investment and focus specifically on your team. It is all about making it tailored for your team, relevant and effective in practice and competition – and most importantly, improving performance and getting results!

Head Coach, Women’s Championship Netball Team

“Bo and Athlete Assessments were then an invaluable tool for me as a new Coach with a new group. It allowed me to make quicker connections with the athletes, understand how to best communicate with them and understand everyone as individuals.”

Elissa Kent

Melbourne University Lightning

Head Women’s Tennis Coach, 4 x National Champions

“Working with Athlete Assessments and using their DISC Profiles has been revolutionary. Our players have gained so much from learning about their own profiles and those of the rest of the team. After working with Athlete Assessments, it created a greater awareness that we all have different skills and all bring something to the team.”

Roland Thornqvist

University of Florida

Gymnastics Head Coach

“Athlete Assessments made us a tougher team and that toughness is one reason why we were so great this year.  They learned how to reset when things didn’t go as planned, they learned that taking full advantage of an uncomfortable situation makes them better, and they learned that they can endure much more work than they thought they could.”

Elise Ray

University of Washington

Gators Softball Head Coach, 2014 and 2015 NCAA Division 1 National Champions

“The most valuable thing that I gained from Athlete Assessments was that the understanding of who I was helped me better coach who they were.”

Tim Walton

University of Florida

Head Coach, Women’s Rugby Team, 2017, 2016 and 2015 National Champions

“Our program recognizes the strengths of DISC and our staff could not be happier with the results it has yielded. I would recommend DISC to those coaches who have a passion for becoming better at understanding their athletes and getting the most effective performances out of them.”

Becky Carlson

Quinnipiac University

Head Coach, Rugby Team, 2017, 2015 and 2014 D1A National Champions

“We had been so close in three previous championship games and I knew this was the missing link. It was through Bo’s assistance that we found a way to get closer to team synergy. Ultimately, the trust we created was what provided immense value to the end result.”

Tim O’Brien

Saint Mary’s College of California

Head Coach, Softball Team

“Bo and Athlete Assessments guided us through the people side of the championship formula and the results are unmistakable. Bo inspired us and educated us that learning to understand the people in our program is the greatest advantage in guiding us back to a championship program.”

Kristi Stefanoni

The University of Massachusetts

Head Coach, Soccer, Division I National Championship Coach

“DISC has given our team a much better understanding of themselves and others and created a common language to discuss our similarities and differences. It has totally enhanced our communication both on and off the field.”

Becky Burleigh

University of Florida

University of Notre Dame Softball Coaching Staff

“The use of Athlete Assessments and CoachDISC has had a tremendous impact on the culture of our program. As Coaches, we have been able to really dig deep and gain a better understanding of who we are as individuals and why we do what we do.”

Deanna Gumpf

NFCA Mid-Atlantic Region Coaching Staff of the Year (2014 & 2016)

Head Coach, University of Illinois Women’s Wheelchair Basketball Team

“Working with Athlete Assessments has been invaluable to our team culture because our student-athletes were challenged by Bo to be vulnerable with their teammates, to recognize and acknowledge what makes themselves and their teammates great, and to understand how their behaviors directly impact the ability of our team to be successful.” 

Stephanie Wheeler

Head Coach, USA Women’s Wheelchair Basketball Team

Dan O’Brien

Santa Clara University Baseball

Head Coach

“While I know that Athlete Assessments is a business, I never feel like it when working with them. Bo and Liz genuinely care about our success. I know during one of our talks the staff was at a loss and didn’t know how to proceed and Bo calmed us down and led us to a better solution. He didn’t give us an answer, he just led us there.”

David Zelenock

Tennessee Tech Volleyball

Olympic Gold Medal Coach and World Championship Rowing Coach
