Core Values that Build and Drive a Championship Culture

Eastern Thought, Native American Tradition and Sports Psychology for Extraordinary Performance, Leadership, and Coaching in Athletics and Life 

"Dr. Jerry Lynch, recognized by some as one of the top five in his profession nationwide,  is an internationally known expert in the field of performance, leadership and coaching over the last 40 years working with athletes and teams at universities such as The University of North Carolina, Duke, Maryland, Oregon State, Stanford, Harvard, Middlebury, Syracuse, UConn, Washington, Iowa, New Mexico, to name a few."

ATHLETES can choke, slump, and underachieve and fail if they focus on the wrong things, are unable to let go of setbacks, errors, and mental mistakes, lack of self-confidence, have difficulty handling performance pressure, fear failure, have unrealistic expectations and experience competitive anxiety. Leaving the mental, emotional and spiritual talents of performance to chance makes you more susceptible to performance problems such as psych-outs, choking, slumps and mental blocks. To be more self-confident and achieve peak performance, you must learn to train these talents. Let Dr. Lynch teach you the spiritual,emotional mental mechanics and not leave your performance to chance. He can teach you to develop the HEART and MIND of a champion through his approach, Way of Champions.

The Meaning Behind the Way of Champions Logo

Jerry has had a life-long quest for over 40 years to make a difference in the lives of others. He truly wants to penetrate the enigma of athletics. He considers his approach to be a fundamental and unconventional view of "why we play." When the "why" is answered, the ramification can lead to sea change, a new way of seeing sports and life as well. He does this by helping people of all ages and abilities in all arenas of performance to develop the essential spiritual core values, traits and qualities of courage, integrity, fearlessness, tenacity, patience, persistence in order to overcome mental and emotional blocks. Using a rather unconventional approach by combining Eastern Thought (Buddhist, Taoist), Native American Tradition and western psychology he is able to help you and your team to create confidence, mental toughness, inspiration and empowerment for competitive events and to better navigate the unchartered waters of life.
