Event description

Description

Make your boats faster and your team stronger.

Dr. August Leming has become one of the nation’s leading high performance psychology consultants. He has worked with BNP Paribas, Bristol Meyer’s Squibb, and Navigant Consulting to name only a few of the corporations that have benefited from time spent with August. But more than this, Dr. Leming built his entire approach to Compassion Based High Performance in and through the sport of rowing. For the last decade, Dr. Leming has worked with the country’s leading rowing programs, including the University of Washington, the University of Virginia, Loyola Marymount and nearly every club on Boathouse Row in Philadelphia.


This 4 hour, "minds-on" seminar will cover some of Dr. Leming's powerful coaching methods:

Tough, Kind and Flexible
This workshop serves to develop resiliency, self care, and the capacity to let go. Toughness is more than having a high tolerance for pain. Participants will learn to face their fear of failure and develop the resilience and compassion to let go of mistakes during the competitive event.

Culture Building and Development
Today's teams are complex and diverse. Recognizing what makes us unique and at the same time so similar in our collective journey is the first step to culture building. The seeds of culture are planted long before the season begins, and the culture itself continues to change and grow throughout the season and life of any team.

Cultivating Courage and Compassion
High level athletics share a common experience: suffering. Whether it be the pains of training, the misery of injury, or the heartbreak of loss, elite competition provides individual athletes and teams the blessings of coming to know who and what they really are. In recognizing the inherent suffering of sport, athletes can then learn to embrace it, share it, and ultimately use it as a source of empowerment.

Leadership
Developing leadership in today's athletic environment demands social intelligence, emotional agility, and mindfulness. This workshop serves both coaches and athletes interested in learning how to bring out the best in each and every member of their athletic community.


Lunch will be provided
