As the captain of the national Hong Kong netball team, I know all about the highs, lows and struggles that go with the territory of success, failure and results! After two World Netball Championships as a player, I moved into coaching, working with two England Netball Superleague teams.
As Scotland’s performance director and national netball coach, I presided over the team’s move up the world rankings to 12th place and qualification for the Commonwealth Games in 2014. What I came to realise is that physical prowess, superior skill capacity and exceptional game understanding, although excellent qualities do not produce world-class teams. For years, I was missing the ultimate game-changing performance variable, a persons’ use of the human mind!
As a Human Performance and Resilience consultant, I help people to understand the power of the mind, that they live and perform freely, without judgement and beliefs which hinder their enjoyment and results. It seems vital to me to go upstream and help people to profoundly understand the source of all human endeavour, as a way of resolving conflict, improving leadership, managing difference and enhancing performance.
