|Mental Conditioning is a new an
exciting field that takes the best of Sports Psychology and combines it
with the best of Meta-Coaching to create very powerful interventions to
develop athletes as individuals and in teams.
Why this mental conditioning is different to other offerings is that we have identified 13 mental skills that support elite athlete performance and we can measure an athletes current mental skills to identify what areas are needed to focus on.
We can also measure the impact of the coaching intervention, to create a tangible return on investment.
We use the Elite Athlete Development Model to coach athletes to zone on demand as well as to develop the critical mental skills required for sustained high level performance.
“I have known and had the privilege of working with Tim on certain projects, for a number of years now. I have also read his book, “In the Zone”, and used many of the techniques and principles he teaches and discusses in the book, with much success. I believe Tim is fast becoming one of the finest mental coaches in South Africa, and I believe his work will have a significant impact on the teams or individuals that chose to engage with him."
"Tim Goodenough joined the Sharks as
Mental Coach for the Super 14 season of 2008.
As a first time Captain (Super14), Tim helped me tremendously to identify, develop and apply my leadership skills for the good of the team.
Tim was a real asset for the Sharks."
"I believe that Tim added a new dimension to the way I play and prepare for a game, he gets you thinking about things you usually don't or have never thought about. This gives you a quiet confidence that makes you believe in yourself and go for it. I still use a lot of elements in my preparation to this day and thats the kind of influence he has had on my game."
Ryan Kankowski, Sharks
"The sessions I had with you really helped me not only in my cricket, but also in my everyday life. It feels like I have the edge over my opponents, and im also understanding myself better (how to perform, and emotional awareness).Herewith I would like to thank you for working with me this past winter.
I will definately make use of your expertise in the near future, as im always trying to improve myself and become one of the best cricketers around. Furthermore I will always recommend you to anyone who could benefit from your work."
"I’ve become more mentally strong
and (the program) made me realize how much I can still offer to the
game to become a better player."
“I have found this to be most beneficial
not only in my sports career but also in life in general. It has been
a wonderful experience learning this skill (of zoning) and I believe
with continual application of this technique my game shall improve in
leaps and bounds. I will definitely recommend this to my team mates
in the future.”
