We believe the most successful teams are, at their core, a united front of visionaries – including owners, coaches, and the entire roster.
We create a radically different organizational culture that rewards honesty and inspires innovation. We tailor our services to refocus your leadership and players in a new context of candor, accountability, and solidarity. We foster a higher standard of personal and professional integrity on and off the field, and believe that happiness throughout an organization produces extraordinary results. When an entire organization is in alignment, the results are profound, and its people extraordinary.

Athlete Life Coaching
Our Athlete Life Coaching program works with players to help them realize factors that are integral to being as successful off the field as they are on the field, and how the two are connected. We teach tools that create behaviors to help maximize and prolong their playing careers. We help athletes understand their inner dialogue and how it can either champion their success or hinder them from achieving their goals.
Our work with athletes has helped them attain leadership positions on their teams as well as increase their confidence in communicating with coaches and teammates. We provide the tools to live true to their highest ideals for themselves, as well as design boundaries around caring for loved ones and friends. They discover what other areas of their life they need to work on that will allow them to port their athletic strengths into other arenas and plan for long-term success off the field.

Locker Room Culture Transformation
Our Locker Room Culture Transformation Program assists organizations in winning the integrity battle in the locker room before they begin the battle on the field. The hallmark of successful sports teams is high moral character throughout the organization, particularly with its players. Eliminating off-the-field distractions is pivotal in creating a winning culture. We work with coaches and players to recognize the connection between Personal Integrity® and team success. We then create an accountability program with them that will help keep their personal behaviors aligned with team and organizational goals.
