High School

High school athletes are pressured by coaches, parents and themselves to constantly increase their level of performance, sometimes to their detriment because their aspirations are beyond their capacities. To excel they sometimes ignore their physical and mental well-being striving to accomplish the rewards of college athletics.

Their stress levels climb because they pay little attention to a healthy balance, and their stress gets incorporated into a cycle of performance that is not sustainable. Not enough attention is given to stress reduction so they can play at their maximum level of performance. Added to this, once they enter college the pressures of more intensive academics and level of play, adds to the imbalance. Many fall apart for a peak of achievement and can’t find ways to put themselves back together.

Danaus’s program helps these young athletes get grounded and find ways to focus on their ultimate goals through inspiration instead of stress and fear of failure.

By doing so their lives are more balanced and their needs are not denied thereby increasing their achievements within themselves, their sport and their community.

College Athletes

When an athlete is recruited to the college level, they might think of themselves a superior to their team members because they were at the top of their high school sport. Realizing that they are just one of a team of highly accomplished athletes can be a blow to their esteem if it was based on weak underpinnings. They don’t play as much on the field, the coaches can be more critical and less supportive, and their focus is distracted by their problems with their emotions rather than their sport. Self concern like this can divide the team. Instead of striving for their personal best and integration, they want to “one-up” their team members not just in their play, but off the field as well. What appear to be problematic conduct and attitudes are often problems adjusting to their new, more high performance environment.

Resentments can reverberate and disharmony can show up in play and overall team performance, which in turn can lead to losses, frustration, anger and acting out in the community.

Danaus’s program increases the likelihood that each individual player will see and understand the value of their contribution and how they fit into the team. They learn to compete for their personal best in order to become the most effective team member. The outcome is better team cohesion and wins in every way, regardless of the score.

Pros

Athletes achieving the professional level of their sport prove to
themselves that they are amongst the best of the best. Although
developed as a professional athlete, their maturity as a person may not
be at the same level. Because of this uneven development, personal
issues that have been push down may surface profoundly impacting their
lives and the success of their teams. Instead of dealing w their personal
low esteem and weaknesses, they may overly rely on their advisors,
substance and behavioral dependencies, and inappropriate and risky
behaviors in the community. Some athletes can’t hand their fame or their
wealth. Although they have enough talent, they lack an understanding of
their core as a person, and therefore need help to handle their
professional and economic success. This can lead to diminished
individual performance and create barriers to effective teamwork and
team losses. It can be difficult for a coach to unravel these kinds of
problems because the source of performance problems become
intertwined. Demanding team harmony and “just do it” and win, does not
help when the athlete’s problems are not primarily behavioral and are
deeply seated.

At this level Danaus helps re-introduce the high performance athlete to
the part of themselves that has been neglected. By reconnecting them to
their true selves they are more able to make good choices, increase their
focus on the team, maintain good character on and off the field, increase
their confidence in their abilities to succeed, relax and renew their passion
for the game that leads to more valuable contributions to their team.

Professional Team Building

To accomplish a company’s overall mission, Danaus strengthens the individuals who make up work teams so each executive or employee winds up a their own unique sense of themselves and how they can contribute to the tens success. By highlighting their identity as a group member without lowering their sense of individuality, energies are coordinated and see sense of mutual accomplishment is enhanced.

When team members feel like their opinions or ideas don’t matter they are less apt to share their creative and important perspectives, which results in the stagnation of “group think.” When they convert from enthusiastic participants to workers just there for a paycheck, their passions are blocked and they are prone to negatively and burnout.

When worker attitudes are negative and cynical, morale and profits can be affected, emotional problems can flourish, and productivity falls off. Companies see their medical insurance costs and sick leave increase and turnover can become a problem with the costs of recruitment and training.

Hypnotherapeutic team building can dramatically alter the way team members see themselves and their important role within the company. They are more able to deal with the pressures of coworkers and demands of their work projects. Work team leaders are more aware of their members’ needs and the importance to sometimes build esteem for the overall performance of the team. Danaus understands that good communications, trust, and teamwork, positively affects the mindsets of team members, helping with increased sense of inner security, reduces interpersonal conflict and unnecessary workplace tensions. This translates into increased productivity and profits.
