Emotional regulation is critical for peak performance. We have to learn how to regulate the way we feel to control the impact on our actions, and ultimately our performance. Elite athletes learn how to identify and control various emotions to stay on target with their performance goals. What type of emotions can affect the way we perform? How do they impact our performance? What can we do to minimize this impact?
In today's fast paced world it is critical that we get a better handle on the stress in our lives. Learning to manage our stress levels not only protects our health but allows us to function better at home, at work, and in the show pen.
By now, I hope I have convinced you that great performances require far more than just physical ability. Our mental skills enable us to bring it all together and deliver upon command, but our thinkers can just as easily let us down.
Assuming the role of teacher, coach or trainer carries the weight of substantial responsibility. We turn to these leaders in our industry to benefit from their experience with the aim of advancing our own careers.
