Are you harder on yourself than you are on others? Do you believe that the more critical of yourself, the better you will perform or more motivated you will be?
Dr. Ashley Kuchar is a former collegiate student-athlete and the founder of Fail Better Training™. As a mental performance coach, she is passionate about helping athletes (of all levels) learn how to respond to challenging situations in ways that foster resilience rather than rely on harsh criticism.
Ashley completed her PhD at The University of Texas at Austin, working alongside Dr. Kristin Neff. During her doctoral degree, Ashley developed a resilience program called RESET. She tested the 6-session program with over 250 NCAA student-athletes and found that it supported adaptive coping, well-being, and sport performance. In 2019, Ashley was one of five graduate students to receive an NCAA research grant to aid in the development of RESET (formerly "Fail Better").
In this podcast, Ashley and Cindra talk:
