Elite competitors in sports, business and entertainment have a limited window to be at their best. This involves a unique understanding of what it takes to be at your best. The mind orchestrates all other parts of the body and it determines the choices and decisions we make. Our decisions are governed by our values and priorities.
Most individual competitors fall along one of the areas of development:
Unconsciously Incompetent – they don’t know that they don’t know
Consciously Incompetent – they know that they don’t know
Unconsciously Competent – they don’t know that they know
Consciously Competent – they know and know that they know
Many times we struggle to understand where we fall relative to our understanding of both who we are as a competitor and where we need to focus. In many cases we over-estimate our competency which ultimately limits clear decision making. Without recognition of our weaknesses we don’t attack the performance areas it will take to succeed or master the demands that lay in front of us. In other cases we underestimate ourselves and our abilities with respect to our team, sport, circumstances, and/or future, subsequently not developing the confidence we’ve earned relative to past performances.
At the Moawad Consulting Group we focus on the following areas with our clients:

- DEALING WITH PRESSURE
- CONCENTRATION TRAINING
- ATTENTION CONTROL TRAINING
- SITUATIONAL ANALYSIS
- PREPARATION FOR COMPETITION
- GAME SPECIFIC ANALYSIS
- FEEDBACK FROM PERFORMANCE TEAM
- DECISION MAKING AND PREPARATION
- MENTAL TRAINING DURING INJURY
Our past is storied and we’ve worked with many of the best young, current and veteran athletes and entertainers. We’ve supported active NFL, NBA, NCAA, Entertainment, MLS, and MLB players and teams extensively, helping to guide and shape elite prospects as they prepare for the draft or off-seasons of these respective sports or industries.
While our space is limited, we look for challenges and people who are exceptional but striving to get better. As Ray Kroc (McDonald’s Legendary Founder) stated, the world is run by those who are green and growing, not ripe and rotting. We will set goals whether we want to or not. We will have an on-going dialogue in our minds whether we acknowledge it or not. We make micro-decisions daily that impact our long-term future whether we recognize it or not. The reality is, getting to the top, many times, has little to do with age or aptitude and everything to do with approach.
