COMMUNICATION Communication is not a choice Quality of interpersonal skills to help develop effective working relationships with others No matter what you do or don’t do , you are sending signals; you are intervening in the situation and therefore need to be mindful of that reality.
COMMITMENT • • Essential factors: Competence, Autonomy, Relatedness Motivation = Importance x Confidence Difference between motivation and commitment. Motivation is a feeling based on emotion. Unrealistic to 'feel motivated' every day. Commitment does not depend on feelings. Commitment means following a plan even if you don't feel like it that day. For example a surgeon can't say halfway through an operation, I just don't feel motivated to finish this, so I'll stop this. ' Motivation doesn't matter; it is commitment that counts. ' Quality of Motivation driving a player’s intentions/actions
CONFIDENCE Quality of player’s belief in achieving a task/goal Essential factors: 4 sources of confidence in descending order of impact. Performance Accomplishments - Performances, Outcomes, Improving Processes Vicarious Experience - “If he/she can do it, I can do it. ” Verbal Persuasion - self-talk, coach and significant other praise/support Emotional Arousal
CONCENTRATION Essential factors: Knowing what critical factors to attend to (what to focus on/think about? ). Concentration is the interval training of the mental skills world and not steady state running as it is about focus - refocus What do I want to consistently hammer home? The Present and The Process Concentration is nothing more than focusing attention on a particular task/process and holding it there – “tuning in” what’s relevant and “tuning out” what’s irrelevant.
CONTROL Quality of thoughts and feelings driving a player’s intentions/actions • Essential factors: Acceptance of the ‘tennis territory’ • Emotional control (and concentration) is about helping players to anticipate when their emotions might appear both before and within the match and having a plan ready to regain control • Help players talk about and understand the range of feelings and emotions that they experience before competition, in competition and specifically after certain events have occurred (e. g. after a mistake; incorrect/unfair decision; after losing).
