The Mental Edge 
How to Win Every Time

Think Forward

Whether in sports or business, the organizations that thrive in disruption, complexity, and high-stakes conditions are comprised of individuals and teams that play the inner game best. In the new world of work, winning the inner game requires the mental agility to think forward and move beyond comfort zones, optimize team performance and keep pace with the speed of change. To do this your team members need a Mental Edge.
All elite athletes and world-class performers know the power of the inner game, that’s why NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, and PGA organizations have mental game experts on staff.
Two decades ago, we developed our A-Game Transformation System™ (AGTS) originally to equip highly competitive professional and Olympic athletes with a mental edge in conditions of change, uncertainty, and when under pressure.
We then adapted the A-Game Transformation System™ into a corporate-specific model with the intention of giving our corporate clients the same edge in the business world.
The AGTS has demonstrated its viability as a team development strategy that guarantees a competitive advantage and will continue to do so.
The mind can be a liability or asset, adversary or ally, opponent or partner. Our programs enable a cultural mindset shift that empowers your teams to embrace change and face it with confidence, creativity, and collaboration.
The AGTS is eight neuroscience-backed high-performance habits in a five-stage framework, facilitated through a set of experiential training and coaching sessions that build your Future-Thriving Organization™.
Your Team Members Capacity is the Predictor of Your Enterprise-Wide Consistent Levels of Customer Service and High Performance.
The Capacity to:
• Enliven and enrich professional relationships • Adapt, pivot, and make effective decisions • Maintain a calm-confident composure • Find solutions, innovate, and disrupt • Win together, today and in the future

all in the headwinds of today’s climate is your organization’s edge.

Research shows that one of the most common pitfalls to effective change management is underestimating the difficulty of moving people from their comfort zones.
