Maximizing Human Performance by Understanding the Impact of Trauma

“When I broke my neck and my career ended instantly, I thought I would be OK.”
Later, when I woke up in hospital paralyzed from the chest down I thought my life was over. (no arms, no legs, no bladder, no bowels). The impact of a trauma would ultimately rob me of my emotional well being; my identity, my self image & my self worth. I was stuck emotionally and my recovery slowed.  I found I would get better faster by working on my emotional state and not just my physical health.  
My wife Patti and I shared what we had discovered with other people who were trying to get better, and it worked for them as well. Today the science about emotional well-being is clear and I will bring it to the forefront for you.
My  books and courses will make you more aware. Part of that awareness is of how performance and trauma work together. I hope you use my course, read the books I write and share the Trauma Checklist to get better.
