  • Friday 25th July: How To Create A Winning Mentality.

    In elite sport the winning margin can be tiny. What is it that separates the winners? Why is it that some are always a few milliseconds quicker, or can score just one more point? When it comes to those narrow margins, what allows some to consistently be the winners?

    During this session Yorkshire CCC’s sport psychology coach, Simon Hartley, will share the approaches that he uses to help organisations create a winning mentality. In doing so, he will take us behind the scenes and provide insights into elite professional sport and Team GB Olympic programmes. We will discover how organisations develop their winning mentality and how you can foster ‘world class thinking’ in your teams.
