The Building Blocks of Human Performance

Doug Smith is a father, husband, and NHL hockey player from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Since a career-ending spinal injury stopped him in his tracks, Doug has dedicated his life and story to helping other people to quickly learn about the process of recovery and high performance.

Doug coaches senior executives and business leaders who are aware they need personal and professional improvement and/or senior executives & leaders who are flying MACH 5 into the ground and need to turn it around fast.

In 2017, Doug’s first two books (The Trauma Code & Thriving in Transition) were inducted into Canada’s Parliamentary Library, and today his meditations, courses, and books are available for everyone to build their dream environment.

At just 18 years old, Doug was drafted 2nd overall into the NHL to play for the Los Angeles Kings as their youngest player ever. In professional game # 607, at age 29 Doug went full speed into the end boards shattering his spine into hundreds of pieces, ending his professional sports career instantly.

Doug understands because he has done it, how to build and maintain mental performance through transformation. It is this experience and learning that Doug brings to his clients.
