As Rio 2016 fast approaches, the USA Olympic Committee (USOC) has commissioned a programme to ensure Team USA coaches are at the top of their game. The programme has been developed to ensure all coaches have the skills needed to give their athletes the edge. The aim is to develop their self-awareness in recognising the impact they have on others and how and when to adapt in challenging situations.
The high-impact programme was developed and delivered with People Academy, and includes at its core the use of the Thomas Sport psychometric assessments, measuring the behavioural and emotional traits of coaches. The first cohort of coaches attended a high impact module at LA Galaxy’s stadium in February 2015.
