What Have You Learned From Last Year?

What Have You Learned From Last Year?

By working with David Charlton, you and your organisation will be better equipped to rise to modern day challenges and better informed to thrive on and off the pitch, course or court.  Where he inspires individuals and teams to:

  • Cope with pressure and challenges more effectively
  • Maintain positive mental health
  • Compete with confidence more often
  • Manage your emotions better
  • Improve your commitments levels

David is a Mental Toughness Practitioner, as well as a Health Care and Professions Council (HCPC) Registered Sport and Exercise Psychologist.  He has successfully supported athletes, teams and organisations for over 10 years in order to ensure that they perform at their maximum more often.

He has a comprehensive knowledge around the development of Mental Toughness, a plastic personality trait, which determines or limits people to deal effectively with change, challenges and stressors.  In today’s climate, during the Coronavirus pandemic this quality is becoming more and more valuable to individuals, teams and organisations. 

This episode of Demystifying Mental Toughness is going to help you learn from the past year so that you can make 2022 a better year.  Included are different exercises and important questions that you can consider and reflect on.  

Improving your own or support your clients or athletes to improve their learning orientation, a part of Mental Toughness, where you look to seek the learning out of situations is the thinking behind the design of the episode.

Key Takeaways

  • Why do you do what you do?
  • Look to give yourself a better understanding of how you want to live your life and perform in your sport by thinking about your funeral and passing in more depth.  *Please do consider the suitability of this exercise if you are grieving the loss of a loved one.
  • Personal core values can exist at home, at work, in your sport or any area of your life. They should determine your priorities. Look to understand your own core values and any conflicts that are influencing your actions.
