“If we’re focused, confident and relaxed we have a much better opportunity to execute what we want…”
“We know that our behaviors and our habits lead to our results…”
A former pro golfer, Rick earned his doctorate in Applied Sports Psychology. He is the author of Golf: The Ultimate Mind Game and is former editor of Golf Tips magazine.
A high school football injury directed Rick toward the sport of golf, and what he’s learned since has truly been life-altering.
In a competitive playoff for the right to join his college golf team as a walk-on, as he describes it, he “choked” under pressure. It was that “failure” that became a formative life experience and sent Rick toward the study of peak performance strategies.
Today Rick is a sought-after peak-performance coach who trains aspiring professionals and helps corporate executives apply his many strategies and insights on peak performance, leadership and teamwork.
In this episode, Rick shares:
- How to re-write your story to serve your ambitions
- Physiological influences of performance
- Why and how love (passion) is a critical component for peak performance
- His strategy for the golf-course “workshop” with executive teams!
- How his workshop reveals so much about decision making, leadership and communication
- How he applies The Habit Factor in his training to carry his clients beyond just the mental game, and how that was a breakthrough
- How he defines “success”
- How appreciating your life’s “roles” helps you create greater attention and mindfulness
- How to get a little better every day
- And, so much more…
“It’s the exercise and the process behind it — how did they come to the decisions as a team and what happens when someone played poorly? Did they react and judge them?”
Why could I not perform under the pressure, when it mattered most. Yet, when I put some of those mental and emotional skills and trained them, I was able to perform at a high level afterwards…”
“I’m a BIG believer that leadership starts with the individual, not with the team. You have to be able to lead yourself first before you can lead anyone else.”
