Why is Spotlight Different?
The system has been developed by several academics in alliance with the English Institute for Sport (EIS) and The University of Sheffield (UK).
It is based on the science of psychology, along with decades worth of experience in elite sport.
The key turning point for Natural Born Media was the discovery that the Spotlight system could be used well beyond the boundaries of elite sport.
Analysis of individuals and teams who have achieved world-class status showed a strange phenomenon. We had assumed that people at the top if their game would have very similar personality profiles. This turned out to be only part of the story. Yes, they need to focus and the practical ability but their spotlight profiles are deeply varied. What the athletes had in common was their ability (through coaching) to ‘FLEX’ their behavioural style to improve their alignment and empathy with others. They were also able to ‘COPE’ with their own mindset and that of others also.
Spotlight allows us to establish where a person sits in terms of their mindset and behavioural style.
This is only the start of the process as our experience shows us that success usually requires the ability to call upon all the behavioural styles and mindsets (we can see this in teams that have consistent success).
We can then establish practical and realistic ways for the teams to learn to FLEX and COPE.
