The Who – Katherine Bond
The Why – because Katherine loves working with people, and in particular loves helping them see how good they can be. With 15 years experience of working with Olympic and Paralympic athletes, and having been to five Olympic/Paralympic Games, and most recently Rio 2016, she’s passionate about sharing her insights and challenging people to explore their own performance potential. As a Chartered Psychologist with a PhD in performance psychology, Katherine helps Chris make sure that our programmes are full of clever, useful stuff that’s underpinned by robust psychological principles and knowledge and practice from the world of elite sport.
The How – Katherine’s view is that performance is performance, irrespective of context! So she invites people to think of themselves as performers, and works with them to get better at performing. How does she do this? A blend of structuring sessions where people learn for themselves, often by doing, alongside delivering insightful and impactful observations when the timings right. She loves applying – and sharing - stuff she’s learnt through her work with high performers as a psychologist in a way that’s highly pragmatic and impactful for the people she’s working with.
The Never Stand Still – always interested in whether things can be done better, Katherine loves learning and hates standing still. Katherine helps keeps an eye on what we’re doing and how, bringing new insights and lessons from her work in the fast paced world of Olympic and Paralympic sport into our programmes.
