Coach Lowell Wightman
Lowell Wightman, who is often referred as Coach Wightman, has dedicated over 30 years to the study of defining positive mindset and applies practical methods to improve leadership style. In the 80’s and 90’s Lowell worked with legal, medical and accounting practices to developing training curriculums.
During this time he built relationships with Stephen Covey, Deepak Chopra, Mark Victor Hansen, and Dennis Waitley discovering that a focus on positive processes is far more effective then just the end results. Today Lowell uses his experience with college and professional athletes to enrich leadership theory models as he presents to business audiences.
His years of experience are referred to routinely when Mr. Wightman teaches his Master Coaching course at Colorado State University (CSU). He developed this course for anyone in a role of trust and leadership. Lowell is a doctoral candidate in Educational Leadership & Human Development and is an adjunct professor at CSU School of Education- Adult Education & Training. The combination of business and sports experience sets Lowell apart with organizations looking to define leadership style, promote mental toughness, and develop positive attitude mindsets.
For three season (2012 to 2014) Coach Wightman was the Mental Conditioning Coach for CSU football team and was responsible for creating and delivering team mindset development. Mr. Wightman’s favorite quote summarizes his philosophy and passion for discovering the best path to performance excellence:
“WE CANNOT SOLVE OUR PROBLEMS WITH THE SAME THINKING WE USED WHEN WE CREATED THEM.” – ALBERT EINSTEIN
“Whether you’re a professional athlete, a college athlete, executive from the boardroom, or that performer standing in front of a stage – there’s a process that generates the best results for them.”
For high performance athletes
Mental Conditioning for athletes creates drills and training that combines the strength and conditioning development programs into one mindset designed to produce excellence. Our training programs and exercises are customizable to each athlete and team so that the performance attitude is focused on process execution.
“He recovered quicker, he was oxygenated, and the next day his recovery was much more efficient. But it required training, a thoughtful inquiry into who are you, what’s happening, what are the obstacles, and then creating a process that connects all the pieces.”
“We work ourselves out of jobs – make an impact, a lasting impact with a process that works based on scientific assessments. That’s what we do with RMP16.”
For Performance-Driven Leaders
Developing team and individual strategies for creating mental toughness is an essential first step to the mental conditioning process. Formal assessment tools are also used to measure readiness and resiliency of individuals and teams. Your industry demands and personal goals will determine your level of leadership development and mindset management.
