Effective Goal Setting in Sport

Goal setting is one of the most important mental skills in sport. Well set up goals are helpful for long-term as well as short-term performance. Hundreds of sessions and mental trainings have showed us the importance of goals for individuals and teams on their road to success. Goal setting is mental skill that provides huge space for creativity and exploration in setting the right goals.     
The webinar is designed for athletes, coaches, parents as well as for sport directors. We will talk about what types of goals you can use, and how they can help you in optimizing long-term and short-term performance taking into account different competitive levels and age groups. We will also mention main mistakes the athletes do regarding setting their goals. Further we will explore effective goal setting, and the impact of choosing the right words for defining your goals. Finally, as we like experiential learning, you will have opportunity to try some of the concepts in the activities through which we will guide you during the webinar. The participants will get workbook and study materials as part of the webinar.
