The Attentional and Interpersonal Style Inventory

The Attentional and Interpersonal Style Inventory (TAIS)

The Attentional and Interpersonal Style Inventory (TAIS) measures athlete/coach/performer’s use and frequency of use of mental skills through three performance building blocks: leadership, emotional control, and performance. It allows athletes, coaches, or performers to identify environmental conditions and specific behaviors that are likely to facilitate or interfere with their ability to make effective decisions and perform at their optimal level.
