Performance Enhancement Plan for Individual Athlete Development

This document outlines a comprehensive intervention plan designed to enhance the performance of Andrew Athlete, a talented quarterback and potential draft pick. The objective is to address Andrew’s skills on the field and his role as a teammate, aiming to optimize his performance and readiness for the upcoming draft.

Introduction

Our company’s objective is to elucidate the available services and establish achievable goals with tailored activities to elevate Andrew’s performance. To initiate the performance enhancement plan, Andrew will undergo the Test of Attentional and Interpersonal Style (TAIS), a comprehensive 144-questionnaire designed to assess how individuals function under pressure (Winning Mind, n.d.). This assessment will provide valuable insights into Andrew’s psychological profile, identifying areas for improvement in both attentional and interpersonal domains.

Services Available

Following the TAIS assessment, Andrew will have access to two primary services for performance enhancement. Individual sessions will focus on addressing Andrew’s mindset and psychological needs, including confidence building, transition management, and consistency (Premier Sport Psychology, n.d.). Additionally, teamwork sessions will facilitate Andrew’s integration with his teammates, fostering cohesion, understanding team dynamics, and developing leadership skills (Premier Sport Psychology, n.d.).

TAIS Results

Andrew’s TAIS scores were benchmarked against the World Champion range, covering 67 percent of their scores (Capella University, n.d.). Discrepancies from this range indicate areas where Andrew deviates from the characteristics of top-performing athletes. Andrew scored lower than the World Champions in information processing, control, physical competitiveness, and expression of support and affection, suggesting potential challenges in multitasking, accepting leadership roles, facing physical challenges, and demonstrating emotional support (Enhanced Performance Systems, 2015).

Conversely, Andrew scored higher than the World Champions in external distractibility, internal distractibility, orientation toward rules and risk, self-criticism, decision-making style, and expression of criticism and anger, indicating tendencies towards distraction, impulsive decision-making, self-criticism, and confrontational behavior (Enhanced Performance Systems, 2015).

Goal-Setting Styles

Andrew demonstrates a success-oriented goal-setting style, wherein success is defined based on social comparison standards (Burton et al., 2013). Our aim is to transition Andrew towards a performance-oriented goal-setting style, emphasizing learning and personal development over social comparison.

Goals and Activities

Based on Andrew’s TAIS results, the following goals and corresponding activities are proposed:

  1. Improve focus and deal with distractions

    • Activity: Engage in attentional focus exercises to tune out distractions and enhance concentration (University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics Authority, n.d.).
  2. Increase confidence and cope with doubts

    • Activity: Utilize imagery techniques to visualize successful plays and leadership scenarios, enhancing self-confidence (University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics Authority, n.d.).
  3. Develop stress-relieving skills

    • Activity: Practice self-regulation through meditation to achieve emotional control and optimize performance (Williams & Krane, 2015).

Techniques and Activities

  • Attentional focus: Tuning out distractions and focusing attention.
  • Imagery: Visualizing successful performance.
  • Self-regulation: Exerting control over thoughts, feelings, and actions.
  • Meditation: Achieving relaxation and concentration.

Conclusion

This performance enhancement plan is tailored specifically for Andrew Athlete, aiming to elevate his skills, mindset, and teamwork abilities. By addressing his individual needs and providing targeted interventions, we aim to support Andrew in reaching his full potential as a quarterback and teammate.
