"One of the things that I've learned really from the guys that I work with is, it doesn't matter if you just made the best play ever, you can't dwell on that either. It doesn't matter if you just made the worst play ever, you can't dwell on that either. it's all about learning and moving forward and then preparing for the next play that's coming at you." - Dr. Katy Tran Turner 

"I'm just going to parking lot it and come back to it later, I'm just going to park it for now and revisit it later. And then the next important step is refocusing on something that is task relevant coming up in the next play." - Dr. Katy Tran Turner

"The social nature of sport changes the way that we think, it changes the way we make decisions, it changes the way we process information." - Dr. Katy Tran Turner

"The way an individual makes a decision or processes information is different when they are surrounded by their teammates." - Dr. Katy Tran Turner 

"What do you know about your teammates' preferences and tendencies? Because if you now those preferences and tendencies then you can help them process information and make decisions faster because you know what they are going to do. And likewise they know what you're going to do if you share that information really INTENTIONALLY." - Dr. Katy Tran Turner 

"If you're building something knew [culture] it has to be delivered from every angle...I have found that it is really helpful when it comes from everyone. Not just the head coach, not just form the leadership group, but also the support staff." - Dr. Katy Tran Turner

“The worst lies are the lies we tell ourselves.” Richard Bach

High performers know they can lie to themselves. They realize that growing their mental strength is about learning to lie to themselves less! They remember that happiness doesn’t come from what they have, but from within. They think like a 60 year old instead of believing the lie that others will think they are silly. They celebrate what makes them unique. And they realize everyone is struggling with something.

I let go of the lies I tell myself to become the person I was meant to be.”

“You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself.” Jim Rohn
 
High performers know they need to take 100% responsibility for everything in your life. They embrace E + R = 0. They ask themselves, how can I take just 5% more responsibility for my life. They realize its not what other people say to them that matters, it is what they say to themselves matters. They give up blaming and complaining. They take control of their life and drive it!

I accept 100 percent responsibility for my life. I own my power."

I do the impossible because I am possible!”

Tom is a speaker, author and entrepreneur who helps leaders turn their communication “shortcomings” into competitive advantage.

Tom’s entire career has been about identifying, reaching and winning over audiences.  In his first career, he did that first as an advertising executive with Ogilvy, Grey and Hal Riney, and as a marketing VP for Sears and 3Com.  In Tom’s second career as CEO of Second City Works, the B2B arm of the famous Second City comedy theatre, he got whole new perspective on winning audiences.  There, he turned the company’s corporate entertainment side hustle into a groundbreaking communications and executive education consultancy.  Over Tom’s 14-year tenure, he and his team used comedy and improvisation to help tens of thousands of leaders improve creativity, communication and collaboration.  He also co-wrote the top selling leadership book: Yes, And How Improvisation Reverses “No But” Thinking and Improves Creativity and Collaboration (Harper Business).

Tom just began his third career with the launch of Shyne Advisors, an innovative executive communication company that helps quiet, introverted leaders become confident, original communicators.

Tom is a past IncubatorEdu mentor and the proud father of two sons, one of whom is an IncubatorEdu alum.

“Don’t let negativity win. When you rise above the negative energy, you raise the positive energy for everyone.”  Jon Gordon 

High performers develop positive teams. They realize that positivity makes a difference and they value it. They generate positivity on their team by working from their purpose. Knowing their vision. Working to get better each day. Having optimism and showing love and care. They show 1% more positive each day.

Power Phrase: 

"I choose positivity. I choose to bring positive energy each day and in each situation with my team."
