Following the success and high demand for places at the Chimp Management for Sports Coaches workshops in Reading, British Cycling has announced a further series of workshops in Manchester.
Chimp Management, a company established by Prof. Steve Peters, and British Cycling are delivering a further series of workshops starting on 13 August in Manchester. These workshops have been developed specifically for coaches, working at any level of sport, who wish to improve their own coaching practice through the application of the mind management programme.
The mind management programme was used successfully to assist Olympic medallists such as Sir Chris Hoy, Victoria Pendleton and Laura Trott. It was devised by Prof. Steve Peters, who was a vital cog in the success at British Cycling. Peters has also worked with Tour de France winners, Sir Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome. The mind management programme outlined in Peters’ hugely successful book - The Chimp Paradox - is at the core of Chimp Management’s practice.
The six workshops delivered by Chimp Management’s highly experienced consultants will each cover a different topic, however coaches can attend as many or few of the workshops as they prefer, depending on their interests. The workshops do not need to be attended in succession; a coach can go to any one of the workshops, if they’re unable to attend them all.
Coaches will benefit from attending all six courses, however, as there will be tasks between each session, providing progressive opportunities for development.
The workshops will take place from 6pm to 9pm on the following dates.
- 13 August 2014 - Understanding your own mind
- 10 September 2014 - Understanding the mind of those you coach and the optimum mindset
- 15 October 2014 - Communicating effectively with others
- 12 November 2014 - Getting the right environment for you and those you coach
- 10 December 2014 - Looking after physical and mental health
- 14 January 2015 - Planning for success and happiness
All of the workshops will take place at the National Cycling Centre in Manchester.
A place on the workshop costs £37 for British Cycling coaches, £42 for British Cycling members and £57 for non-members who wish to attend. There is a maximum of 20 places available at each workshop.
