Group / Teamwork

Premier offers a variety of services to teams tailored to meet their needs and support their goals. Options include: coach consultations, mindset optimization seminars, interactive workshops, presentations, and team building sessions.

Group or team meetings are an efficient way to bring mindset training to an entire team or coaching group. They can provide athletes with individualized skills training, build awareness of team dynamics, and develop strategies to foster a supportive team environment. Similarly, they can assist coaches in the development of constructive communication and leadership strategies in broad and diverse competitive settings. Our team sessions are experiential and interactive, allowing coaches and athletes to learn both from our sport psychologists, and one another.

What skills and concepts would be covered in group/team sessions?

Each session is customized, so the content and direction of the session will be determined by your team’s unique goals and needs. Group or team sessions can include coaches, athletes, or both. Topics include, but are not limited to:

– Trust
– Team dynamics
– Leadership
– Team values
– Team norms
– Building team commitment
– Coach and player behavioral styles and preferences
– Communication and feedback among players and coaches
– Mental toughness
– Responsibility and accountability
– Growth mindset
– Goal setting
– Understanding team roles

What are the benefits of group/team work?

Team or group sessions are a valuable opportunity for players and coaches to create a shared vision for their team, a vision they can all be responsible for achieving and maintaining. Group work also helps players and coaches understand how their teammates/athletes function within their sport—what motivates them, how they like to play, what kind of feedback is most helpful to them, and what role they’re most comfortable serving on their team.
