Overcoming Obstacles & Stress – Developing the Growth Mindset

This session will introduce the idea of learning to manage stress by developing a growth mindset. In athletics, school, work, and all aspects of life we experience countless challenges, setbacks, and failures. If we have the right mindset, we learn and grow from the challenges life presents; if we do not we are often plagued by stress, doubt and despair. The ability to grow and let go is essential. Participants will be introduced to the Grow-and-Let-Go Strategies and take an Optimal Performance Self-Assessment.
