    We apply the learnings from the latest scientific research to teach you practical strategies that you can implement in sport and in your personal life.

    For individuals, our resilience and optimism training can turn around lives, helping you master your stress, achieve more, and gain more enjoyment from your achievements.

    And a resilient and agile mindset is the foundation.

    High-performance sporting achievement through a winning attitude.

    More than 1,000 studies worldwide have proven that an athlete’s mental toughness and optimism (or attributional style) affects their results.

    Mentally tough athletes achieve more because they:

    • are motivated
    • enjoy better moods and wellbeing
    • are healthier
    • recover faster from injury

    Resilient Minds can help you build your winning attitude by:

    • Using a scientifically validated test to measure your mental toughness and provide your personal profile report
    • Developing a coaching plan of action to build your mental toughness
    • Provide mental toughness coaching

    Get in touch to find out how our coaching helped Canterbury Rugby’s NPC team win six Championship titles in succession.


    What people say: SEE ALL TESTIMONIALS

    “I’ve received a promotion to run the company’s largest branch, & the techniques you taught on your course played a large part in me getting there. I’m (almost) unflappable & very little gets me down these days. Oh joy!!”

    Matthew - Sales Centre Manager

    “I found the tools provided by this course astonishing, and despite being on countless courses over the course of my career, this one was truly a much different proposition. Jamie focuses on the principles of emotional intelligence, delivering the tools that some of us need to truly stretch our capacity for an enhanced mental resilience capacity, and a more optimistic frame of thinking. I observed how powerful his message was amongst all the course participants, and although I rated myself as pretty tough mentally, I gained much.”

    Andrew - Director, Financial Markets Company

    “It was great fun and very informative. I highly recommend the ‘Attitude is Everything’ seminar and the application of the concepts helps me to improve at work and home.”

    Darren Wallis - Chief Executive Officer, G.J. Gardner Homes

    “What I liked most about the ‘Resilience’ programme was the attitude shift from a pessimistic outlook to optimistic with tools that are practical and usable. I highly recommend this programme because the material is based on proven scientific research.”

    Rob Penney - Head Coach Canterbury Rugby Football Union 2006 to 2011

    “The way Jamie presented the ‘Attitude is Everything’ seminar was fantastic. I was taking it all in because of the enthusiasm of it all. I highly recommend the seminar as the ideas and strategies can be easily used by any person and the application of concepts helps me to improve at work and home. I think it gives great inroads to help people achieve the things they are capable of by changing their thinking.”

    Lance Irving - Managing Director, Smith & Sons Franchisee, Christchurch

    “What I liked about the “Learned Optimism and Resilience” programme is that the content is practical, simple and easily applicable. It made a positive difference to how I perceive events in my life. The programme has enabled me to take more ownership of successes, while dwelling less on adversities that we face. I am now more conscious and better equipped to model positive, optimistic behaviour and language. I highly recommend the Learned Optimism and Resilience Programme as it makes a difference.”
