Frequently asked questions

What is microlearning?

In elite sport, training efficiency is crucial. Our pioneering microlearning approach enables trainees to acquire and apply new knowledge and skills in the shortest time-frame possible through short, bite-sized training units that have been carefully designed to boost engagement and knowledge transfer.

What is a micro-workshop?

Underpinned by a microlearning approach, micro-workshops are on-demand, interactive development experiences that are personalised to each trainee. Different from standard F2F workshops, micro-workshops provide laser-focused practical and actionable training that trainees can apply straight away to level-up their performance and development.

How is the workshop delivered?

Development Strengths 101 is a virtual, on-demand workshop meaning trainees can access and complete it at a time that works best for them. The self-paced delivery format also allows trainees the flexibility to complete it in one session or save their progress and jump back in later. Think Netflix...but for performance psychology!

Do trainees get support? 

Absolutely! Our eTraining Arena has been carefully designed so trainees can reach out to for real-time live expert support via our in-built messaging system.

Can sport parents get involved?

For developing athletes at the younger end of the age range (i.e. 13-14) we actively encourage sport parent involvement to facilitate understanding but to ensure your child gets the most from this development experience it should always be athlete-led especially when undertaking the training exercises. 

Is this just for athletes on elite pathways?

Nope. Development strengths are essentially mental attributes that all individuals have the potential to express regardless of their ability. While our experts work mainly in elite sport the workshop is designed for developing athletes across all sports and ability levels.
