Ken Way has been improving the performance of individuals and teams in the worlds of business and sport for more than thirty years.
His client list includes working with national and international champions and elite sportsmen and women from a wide range of sports. In football, for example, he has worked with internationals from over 40 different countries as well as working with five professional clubs including Leicester City when they won titles in Division 1, the Championship and the Premier League.
As a highly respected performance psychologist he has identified key characteristics and mental skills that contribute to excellence in performance in sport and business. Some of this expertise is captured in his highly rated book, ‘Mental Mastery: tried and tested techniques for exceptional sports performance’.
Ken’s background includes working as a psychotherapist and a research psychologist in the human performance arena. This, coupled with his experience of working with elite performers from a wide range of backgrounds, has enabled him to create practical approaches and techniques to help others consider mental dimensions that offer the opportunity to gain vastly improved levels of performance.
Audiences are quickly led into assessing themselves on a number of ‘mental performance aspects’ and there are moments where a ‘lighter touch’ is provided by means of short, humorous video clips – though it should be said that Ken himself is an energetic and entertaining speaker.
Ken’s expertise as a coach has been recognised by many business leaders and executives. He is indeed, the coaches’ coach – running, for example, regular workshops on the ‘mental game’ for the Czech Olympic Coaches Association. His relaxed and highly adaptable approach enables him to work effectively with individuals and teams from diverse backgrounds.
Ken tailors all his sessions to fit a client’s brief and can offer follow-on half or full day workshops for teams who really want to ‘get below the bonnet’.
