Win the Game of Life with Sport Psychology

What separates good athletes from elite athletes? While skill, talent and athletic ability all factor in, mental skills are the major difference maker. Mental conditioning is useful in all walks of life. Whether you’re in the batter’s box, on a date, or in the conference room giving a presentation, we are all looking to get better. Dr. Jonathan Fader, Director of Mental Conditioning for the New York Giants, will show you how you can use the techniques of sport and performance psychology to win at life.

Beyond You: The Power of a Great Team

No matter the industry, location or culture we work in, most us function as part of a team. Sports teams know this well and invest time and capital in carefully selecting personnel and developing their chemistry for the world’s biggest competitions. In his highly interactive talk Fader shares practical insights:

  • How teams in sports and in the military use messaging to empower individuals
  • The secrets of unified motivation in powering teams toward success
  • What leaders and supervisors can do to enhance role clarity and acceptance
  • Understanding how teams develop mental strength and flexibility together
  • Secrets of what makes teams more creative

Fader believes that our greatest strength as humans is our ability to collaborate and innovate in a group. His talk reveals the simple methods that any company or organization can use to harness this strength and maximize its potential.

Stories of Rituals of Success

Successful People Fuel Their Fire

When Dr. Fader went to the world series with the New York Mets, he witnessed the power of internal motivation. Dr. Fader shares his observations of how teams fueled to have strong internal motivations have the most success. Fader shares how you can use similar techniques to enhance motivation to complete any goal.

Successful People Train Their Brain

The first thing Fader noticed when he moved from baseball to football was how few games are played in the NFL (16) versus in the MLB (162). He quickly realized that he needed to find ways to help players get more practice in. Fader shares how you can use mental practice to train your brain to prepare for each day of work, just like a football player would prepare for a game.

Successful People Innovate

Like the military, firefighting tends to be a very traditional community with very few inputs from the outside. Dr. Fader has had the tremendous honor to work with the New York City Fire Department (FDNY). With over 11,000 members it is the largest fire fighting force in the world. Fader shares how this collaboration on the Mental Performance Initiative at the FDNY shed light on how innovation is a necessary ritual for individuals seeking to be their very best.
