Teah with Olympic Gold Medalist Lanny Bassham

Imagine looking forward to competitions knowing that you have the knowledge and tools to mentally perform at your best, on demand. This knowledge and skill will enrich many other areas of your life giving you an understanding of how to deal with pressure and reduce anxiety.

In sports and most competitive events, 5% of competitors do 95% of the winning.  You will learn what top competitors are doing to consistently perform at their best.  You will also learn the proven Mental Management® System™ developed by Olympic Gold Medalist Lanny Bassham.  This system can be used to mentally focus and perform under pressure.

While this knowledge and system can be used for any sport, performance or business application, in this seminar we will focus on how to apply the Mental Management techniques to dog sports.  With dog sports, mental management is critical to consistent performance since dogs are so sensitive to the handler’s anxiety.  Lack of mental consistency is one of the primary reasons dog competitors can be so successful in practice and not in competitions.

Discover the secrets used by top competitors to consistently perform at their best:

  • How to prepare for a competition
  • The importance of goals and a training program
  • What to think about when competing
  • What to think about after the competition
  • How hard should you try when competing
