Northstar Ski & Snowboard Team- Jim Taylor Talk 

Come Hear Renowned Sports Performance Psychologist- Dr. Jim Taylor!  Dr. Taylor is internationally recognized for his work in the psychology of performance.  Don’t miss this opportunity to hear him speak December 28th in the Village Conference rooms at Northstar.

 The Northstar Ski and Snowboard Team, along with the Team Foundation will be hosting two sessions:

 Positive Pushing: How to Raise a Successful and Happy Child, 1:00- 2:30pm (for parents)

Dr. Taylor introduces parents to the use of positive pushing that is very different from the kind of pushing with which they may be familiar. He demonstrates how to push, when to push, and, importantly, when to back off. Dr. Taylor shows parents the Three Pillars of Successful Achievers: self-esteem, ownership, and emotional mastery, and their essential role in raising successful and happy children.

 Prime Snowsport: Triumph of the Competitor's Mind, 4:00-5:30 pm (for athletes 8+, parents and coaches)

 Dr. Taylor will show attendees the importance of mental preparation for competition, regardless of the age or ability level of the racer. He hones in on the five mental factors that most influence performance: motivation, confidence, intensity, focus, and emotions.
