“Sometimes I struggle with wondering if we are being led or used; whether we’re are being loved or fattened up for someone’s benefit other than our own.”

The best type of leadership is the type that allows you the space to find your own style of work and that gives space for not knowing. I had this type of leader in Charles Johns when I was working at Advent Group Ministries in California. He allowed me to make mistakes and call him incessantly whenever I needed any kind of moment to moment advice.

What his approach gave me was the best 360 degree feedback score that the Ministry had ever given out to a residential counselor at that time. His approach allowed my personality to form its own approach within the rules.

Why do I bring that up?

I want to extend that kind of leadership to collegiate student-athletes this summer. I’ve created a mental skills summer challenge that I’ll launch on June 1st where you’ll have access to ask me any lingering questions or thoughts you have. It’ll be great to hear your insights also! You never can tell how your insights would motivate others’ journey!

Of course, even if you aren’t a student-athlete you can join in as well!

You will get education, motivation reminders etc…and the best part is that it’s FREE!!!! If you engage with what I’ll be sharing, you’ll definitely get noticed by your coach. And if you get your entire team to engage and lock-in with this challenge, you’ll get noticed by your opponents!

I will place everything up on my facebook page, so make sure to like it so you don’t miss the weekly posts! Click here to like the page.

Giving people the chance for them to activate their potential is what leaders do. Give yourself and your team that chance…meet me on June 1st!!!

Mile 137: Who am I to say THIS about Cancel Culture! iS IT TRUE?

This new space in our culture called “cancel culture” where any person who disagrees with the growing popular perspective or have made a misstep verbally or behaviorally, whether in the present or in the past, can be cancelled (i.e. have economic means negatively impacted) is the epitome of a self-defeating movement. But…. This is not […]

Mile 137: (Question 3) Dealing with the rising emotions from the murder of George Floyd: a performance psychology strategy perspective.

I never thought that this process would have opened up the amount of deep conversations I’ve had with friends and colleagues because of what they’ve read in these posts. I appreciated every connection. Before I get into answering my final question in my process, I want to mention how inadequate what I’ve said and am […]

Mile 137: (Question 2) Dealing with the rising emotions from the murder of George Floyd: a performance psychology strategy perspective.

I have meditated on part 1 of my performance psychology strategy of analyzing my internal world because of our current cultural climate for a few days now. I’ve gotten to speak with some friends, pastors and business folk about their pov and listened to some podcasts. I’m trying to get different vantage points so I […]
