Addressing the whole picture

 

When working with teams, it is important to involve all the support staff as well as the athlete. Coaches will almost always spend more time and have more influence over athletes’ behaviours than others, whilst ensuring coherent messages from all members of the support team ensures consistent and comprehensive guidance. Furthermore, since communication often depends on quality of relationships, consistent messages from several sources can greatly improve the impact.

In our team approach, Grey Matters gets everyone involved. Confidentiality issues notwithstanding, we work with each individual as a client, addressing his or her most pertinent challenges whilst also catering for the needs of their partners. As a consequence, our work usually encompasses a synthesis of individual skills (for athletes), coaching techniques and organisational/leadership support for management across all levels. Our comprehensive skill set and experiences enable us to work on the complete picture: looking after each piece of the jigsaw AND slotting them together for an optimum fit.

Ashley Light Performance Director Snowsports New Zealand Dave has been working with the NZ Snow Sports High performance programme since 2013. His work and consultancy has helped the programme establish itself on the world stage as a consistent medal winning programme at World Cups and World Championships.

Dave’s approach to a holistic and system wide view of athlete performance needs has allowed all parts of a complex “machine” to understand athletes needs and the environment they perform best in and under.
