What we do
Lianne worked with Reading Football Club Academy under 18 Team during the 2007 / 2008 season. Her excellent educational background in sport psychology and her significant effort and commitment, allied to very good inter-personal skills mean that she has made a difference to us. In the difficult world of football she has established relationships with the players and the staff that have been very beneficial. She has improved our performance by working with the team as a group and as individuals. This has included goal setting, image awareness, motivation and individual development.
The workshops had a profound effect on players’ discipline and ability to see themselves as part of a bigger picture. Players found the sessions easy to operate in, constantly expressed their pleasure in what the sessions did for them and the team, and asked me to extend the time Lianne had with the squad. My experience working with Lianne is that she is a consummate professional and have found her very experienced in other sporting spheres to be of use when working with our group of players. A testament to her role in our set up was the success we gained at the Youth Talent Cup ’09. We recorded the highest position ever by an English team in 60 years of playing, reaching the final and producing a team ethic/winning mentality never seen before
Coaching with Lianne was eye-opening for me. With her help, I better understood myself, where I was going and why. She helped me uncover challenges, passions and action plans that I otherwise may not have pinpointed. She is an impressive listener with a keen skill for analysis.
Lianne understands performance coaching for the top athlete like no one else I’ve met. Her work with my son employed practical mental exercises that resulted in tangible positive difference in his sport. It can be very difficult to engage a teen in such activities, but Lianne’s easy yet firm and credible demeanor draws people in and gets them doing and thinking differently. Add to that she has a genuine care as a mom and a person and hers is a distinct competitive advantage in the world of performance coaching.
I always left coaching sessions with Lianne feeling like a million bucks. As though anything I think or dream up for myself can happen – I just need to do it. She helped me to cultivate a sense of professional self-awareness that had been lacking, and provided useful tools and exercises for challenging my thought patterns and modifying my approach with colleagues and to assignments. Her authenticity and empathy, combined with her utmost professionalism, made coaching sessions feel like the most productive of conversations with a trusted friend. Anyone who has yet to think about where they want to be in ten years – or to realize that they have every power and proficiency within to influence the outcome – needs to meet with Lianne. Coaching is a gift you give yourself.
I had the privilege of participating in the Lincoln Academy Immersion in Dallas in March of 2015. Lianne was a coach during that session and her training and approach was very insightful. Her innovative yet simple techniques simplified my ability to be aware of how and why we become inconsistent in our performance. Whether a professional or amateur athlete or a General Manager of a dealership, Lianne’s methods can and WILL improve anyone’s ability to maximize their performance with simple exercises that everyone should practice. I would highly recommend Lianne for the leadership in any company or any profession where the mind can be the major road block preventing maximum performance. I personally intend to practice her techniques for years to come!
