Education Facilitates Performance

At Beyond Better we advocate for constant learning. Every experience is an opportunity to learn and every behaviour you engage in can be directed toward learning about your craft and becoming better at it.

Learning more about yourself, the world and the ways in which you can change and optimise your practice will bring you one step closer to elite performance. Psychological skills are considered a pillar of high level performance. Physical and technical strength alone will only get you so far, it is the mental strength which gives athletes and executives the competitive edge. Whatever your ambitions, your ability to perform under pressure, block out the excess noise and motivate yourself to keep pushing when you approach your limits, will set you apart from the crowd.

Like other skills, these can be developed through training and discipline.

Psychological Skills

These are the tools we need to thrive. Mental skills are the underlying components that influence our actions e.g. motivation, confidence, emotion management. If we want to perform at our best we need to refine these skills first

Psychological Techniques

These are the specific practices we engage in to develop certain skills. Once you have a goal and something to work toward, these techniques allow you to put it into action. Practical exercises to integrate in your daily routine to be a better you.


To assist you, we have created a resource centre where you can read and download (for free) practical worksheets, questionnaires, research papers and more to help you with your journey of self-improvement.
