Chimp Management Workshop: Improving Performance by Understanding the Mind

The CGA is holding another Chimp Management workshop on Saturday 8th July at the Sports Institute from 9:30 – 12:30.

This workshop would be useful for any team managers, coaches, athletes and support staff working towards Gold Coast 2018. Those working with athletes who have the potential to reach future Commonwealth Games may also find it useful.

If you would like to attend this workshop, please contact Richard Sille (headofperformance@iomaa.info) by Friday 7th July.

Improving Performance by Understanding the Mind:
An opportunity to learn how to optimise the performance of yourself, your team or organisation through the powerful mind management model that has helped support the success of Olympic and Professional teams and athletes. The Chimp model is a mind management model based on the neuroscience of the brain. The workshop will aim to develop insight into the human mind and demonstrate skills to manage your own mind more effectively to improve sports performance and quality of life
