It’s an issue we often struggle with, whether we’re talking about a junior player, a college player, or even an elite professional. It is a question that I get a lot of times from coaches, just like yourself. A lot of your players are very, very talented, but for some reason they just can’t seem to take it to the next step. We talk about attributes like TrackMan numbers or FlightScope readouts, and start looking at some of the very attributes that those players possess. What we often miss is what drives those attributes. The underlying psychological side of greatness.
Be able to characterize each player into one of four personality types so that you can better understand how they learn and receive coaching
Identify a player’s belief systems while eliminating their fears and insecurities
Identify a player’s fears and doubts about the current state of their game and develop a plan to remove that
Develop a player development framework to assess each player’s mental game
Identify a player’s competitive personality and where they thrive and struggle in competitive situations
Spot distractions and barriers to a player’s ability to focus during play, practice, or training
Pinpoint the grit/resiliency displayed by each player
Identify what motivates each player both internally and externally
If they are resisting your coaching, pinpoint why that is and how you can approach them differently
