Coaches/Parents Comments 

“Coach, we had gotten beaten pretty handily by the team we would now face in the 1st round of the districts.  In that interim period, we met with you.  We not only were better prepared and more relaxed, we won the game going away.  I was really happy with how the kids bought into the training and how to apply it, ESPECIALLY under pressure.”

“The best hour we spent all year!! Like you said in the training, this approach will really help in TIGHT games.  We won our next 3 games, all by 1 goal and 2 of the 3 were against state ranked opponents.”

“He actually wrote this out and taped it to his mirror!!   THERE IS NO JUSTIFICATION FOR FAILING TO TRUST.  Oh my goodness!  He has played so much looser since he met with you.  He really looks like he’s having fun out there!”

    Speaking Engagements

    Jim McGannon is a dynamic speaker on the tangible benefits of a winning mindset. By sharing real-world examples, he provides evidence and anecdotes how mastering the tools of mental strength leads to more WINS and better PRODUCTIVITY. Coach McGannon explains how having the tools to handle adversity with resilience and resolve will provide a pathway for positive outcomes. A winning mindset is as vital as well-developed technical skills. His motivational and informative talks will improve your and your team’s performance.

    Duration: 1 hour

    NOTE: Since organizations-teams-businesses often have specific topics that may be on the front burner, Coach McGannon can weave into this presentation mental strength principles that directly relate to those topics. For example, if there are teamwork issues or negative chemistry within the team/organization, those specific topics are easily woven into the training. Management would communicate these issues (and others), and the training would be customized to your group.
