Spoiler Alert: ANYTIME! But there's more too it…
It’s summer, which for me as a mental performance consultant means busy season! Lots of dance studios and coaches want to focus on mental skills training in the summer, which is great. It’s our “off-season” or as I like to say, “improvement season”. So in today’s episode, I want to address a question I get a lot… when should I teach my dancers about mental skills? It’s a great question, so let’s talk about when it’s best to train for mental skills.
Here are some highlights:
- [1m 39s] The best time of year to train for mental skills
- [6m 18s] Example: how to start teaching a new mental skill
- [8m 55s] Specific times of year for specific mental skills
- [11m 48s] Top 5 mental and team skills to start with
