Team Workshops for creating Team Unity & Mental Toughness


Team unity and mental toughness have much in common; they are both intangible and hard to measure. They can both bring a payoff of having more fun and improved performance. Most importantly, when matches/games are close and the pressure is on, mental toughness and team unity become paramount to a winning effort.


When a team is united, the players will feel more supported and more apt to take risks. Subsequently, their level of mental toughness and adaptability will soar. By the same token, when a player is more mentally tough and adaptable, they will be open and accepting of risks, ideas, and trying new things that involve team synergy. When such an atmosphere permeates a team for an extended amount of time, teams become capable of great achievement. A great example the NY Giants defeating the New England Patriots in the 2007 Super Bowl. 


This interactive team workshop will highlight through demonstration, discussion and exercises how to build a mentally tough and adaptable team with a common goal and mission.


Teams that attend these combined workshops will: 

  • Learn how to use the intangible qualities of team and mental toughness to win
  • Recognize the importance of trust in and respect for their teammates
  • Realize that change on an individual and team basis starts with awareness
  • Understand what it takes to win and be a champion

 

"The Mental Training workshop you shared with my Seton Hall Girls Varsity Tennis team would be of benefit, to any team, level or sport. The team building activities were fantastic! And the discussions and demonstrations on awareness and concentration will be helpful to our team, especially during competition. I am pleased you had some time to spend with us on campus today." — Gregory Wyzykowski, Women’s tennis coach, Seton Hall University

 

"The workshops done with Rob were excellent. They were professional, unique and enjoyable, as well as one of the best learning experiences I’ve had as a coach. Our team has a much greater understanding of what team unity really is. Focusing on team bonding, leadership, and goal setting has truly given us a blueprint for success. I highly recommend these workshops to any team looking to take their game to the next level." — Jeff Brandes, Drew University Tennis

His presence has the most calming effect on me; I always know I am in the company of someone who not only understands me, but wholly embraces me." — Illanit Marks, bicyclist
