This is a comprehensive hands on live training for coaches and team managers to create the cultures of healthy competition. Competing to win and being competitive are not the same thing. When we can clearly define the agenda of a team’s goals, paddlers feel competitive within their level of commitment.

“I felt like you were talking directly to me and my concerns about training for the upcoming Worlds. I related to your example of the 11th right. I have learned that I need to be competitive with my personal goals and stop self sabotaging myself”

Pat Van Stedum, President of Survivors in Sync, Sarasota, FL

The message in Cheryl’s presentation was very powerful, gave me a better perspective and definitely inspired me. Cheryl is an excellent speaker/presenter. She was authentic and her experiences made the information “real”. I would absolutely recommend Cheryl for any organization!

Cheryl’s presentation helped me understand some of my strengths and put them in an organized way to help me understand myself better. Cheryl gave examples in her own life that were very genuine and ‘real’ with a human element. Cheryl shared how ‘aggression’ is a form of healthy passion used to attain goals which made perfect sense.
