The Who – Chris Shambrook
Chris's job is to come up with simple ideas from his work as a psychologist and turn them into programmes that we can deliver as a business that we know people will value and want to make use of asap!
The Why – Chris has a passion for elite performance. He's been the Psychology Consultant for the GB Rowing Team since 1997 and having just finished his fifth Olympic cycle with the incredible success of Rio 2016, he's as enthusiastic as ever to apply what he knows about the psychology of success to as many people as possible.
The How – Rio 2016 delivered amazing performances and results. For many of the athletes and coaches a great deal of psychological preparation was involved in being ready to take the stage at the biggest sporting event the world has ever seen. These very same psychology ideas work in all areas of Human Performance, so the HOW is all about techniques road-tested and exploited by Olympic Gold Medalists, applied to any challenge you and your team might be facing. The HOW is simple - practical psychological coaching, grounded in great theory, supported by amazing results and then made relevant to the challenges you face.
Never Stand Still – Chris is responsible for developing the content that sits behind all of our programmes, so he is constantly looking for more relevant and effective ways to communicate our messages. With a foot in the world of Olympic sport still, he is also responsible for making sure that we are fully utilising the tools and techniques that are behind the recent Olympic success in all of our work to ensure that we really do help people think, prepare and perform like elite athletes.
