High performance is not about what we know, it’s about how we think about what we know.
To genuinely allow ourselves or others to realise their potential, we have to work on attitudes and mindsets for performance, not behaviours and actions.
By understanding how to create the difference between compliance and commitment, we can truly encourage ourselves and others to use their skill sets to the optimum.
This one hour workshop takes us through five principles of high performance, as used by some of the most successful sports and business people in the world.
The session will allow attendees to participate in a practical way with psychological ideas on how best to drive individual and team performance for themselves and those they coach.
Engaging and thought provoking the session promises to deliver material and content previously only reserved for the world’s elite sporting performers.

In his talks, Jamil shares with his audiences his practical insights into the psychology of attaining high performance as an individual or team.

Jamil's knowledge in the area of optimizing human potential comes from his experience of working with top performers in the world of sport and business, many of which have been in the top ten in the world in their chosen profession, and indeed in a few cases, number one.

Having spent fifteen years working with the world's elite, he is in a genuinely unique position to define 'the difference that makes the difference'.

His talks are fun, sometimes interactive, but always engaging and thought provoking.

Jamil delivers all his talks in 'learning points' to ensure audiences obtain real value from the content and can take away the content in the most personally beneficial way.

Skills Wanted - Urgent

We require to find the following skill sets within the Club membership:

1. Someone with events organisation and administration skills to ensure that each of the planned events for the coming year are appropriately resourced and marketed to achieve maximum fun, enjoyment and fund raising. This involves overseeing and guiding the team of members that will be assigned to organise each event - it does not involve organisation of each event, just organising for the committee those that are organising the event. This is a committee position and requires attendance at monthly committee meetings.

2. Someone with marketing and sales skills to act as the Club's client relationship officer in respect of the sponsorship deal. This will involve liaison with LJ SKye, Nacelle Limited (the PR agent) to ensure that advertising opportunities are maximised throughout the year. A number of items have already been identified to satisfy promotion activities through to December. This will mainly involve the provision of information to LJ Skye's PR agent and ensuring publicity of agreed events. Again this will involve attendance at or reporting to monthly committee meetings.

If you have skills (or simply time) to be able to satisfy either of the above roles please do come forward and make yourself known to Gail, Keith or Julie. Time is of the essence - events start with Club Day on 6th September, Parents Evening on 11th September and the first sponsorship meeting is likely to be the first week of September.

Fulfilling these roles will be a real asset to the Club's development.
