Founded by an Olympic mental skills and team building coach, we are a performance coaching and culture design firm with a global clientele.

 

We are on a mission to train brains in order to transform minds, teams, and cultures. Our clients receive clear, actionable performance coaching that yields tangible results. We synthesize the research and best practices coming out of fields like neuropsychology, mindfulness, human performance, leadership development, team dynamics, and systems thinking so our clients don’t have to.

 

CEO & Founder

We are a global network of professionals, athletes, Olympians, academics, researchers, and practitioners.

Cornelia’s approach to performance coaching and culture design is informed by decades of ski racing, athletic training, and formal academic study. The great-granddaughter of the Harvard scientist who coined the term ‘fight or flight response’ and developed the concept of homeostasis, Cornelia’s fascination with physiology and performance began in childhood. She started to ski race when she was six years old, and pursued that sport until the age of 21, when she was seriously injured in a ski accident. In order to recover from her traumatic brain injury, she spent the next decade studying and healing her brain and body. Her exploration led to a license in massage therapy and certifications in homeopathy, mindfulness, yoga, and, in 2003, a Masters of Divinity in comparative religion and contemplative studies from Harvard Divinity School where her program of study included training in pastoral counseling, psychology, and peak states of consciousness with additional coursework at Harvard Business School on family business management and leadership. Her deep knowledge of the mind, body, and spirit informs Cornelia’s training approach. From 2006 through the 2010 Vancouver Olympics she served as the mental skills, team building, and leadership development coach for the U.S. Women’s Ice Hockey team. During that time, the U.S. team achieved its first-ever world No. 1 ranking. Cornelia is a summa cum laude graduate of Bowdoin College, a NCAA Division II giant slalom ski racing champion, and member of both the varsity tennis and crew teams. She is blessed to live in Pebble Beach, California with her family where she can play in the ocean and the mountains.

Core Team

 

In addition to the work of performance coaching and culture design, a small but mighty crew works year-round to develop content, run retreats, and take care of the day-to-day business.

 

Our clients are top performing executives, heads of school, athletic directors, division heads, and board chairs who understand that elite-level performance thrives in values-driven cultures and takes regular training and commitment.

These leaders and their teams are willing to do the tough and rewarding work of changing their performance mindsets to build teams that maximize impact and provide their customers and clientele with unparalleled service and value. We introduce shared conceptual frameworks and practices to all members of the leadership team so they can partner effectively with colleagues to affect healthy relationships, lead high-performance teams, and build values-driven cultures where everyone thrives.

Don’t take our word for it, here is what they have to say.
