Whitespace offers advisory sessions for both teams and individual athletes who need to confront and indeed metamorphise into successful winning entities. Metamorphosis comes from the Gr μεταμόρφωσις, to transform, transforming. This is not the typical ‘embrace change’ and ‘overcome team resistance’ to new strategies, but an emotional inventory of the upsets caused by our human proclivity to maintain the homeostatic balance, in other words, stay the same.
"There is nothing permanent except change"
~ Heraclitus 4BC
Whitespace believes that athletes need to ‘change often’ and we use the term ‘metamorphise’ because, like the biological transformative process from tadpole to frog or caterpillar to butterfly, athletes have their change requirements which may include new rules, new teams, new coaches, with new strategies and which result in emotional upsets. The loss of position whether in individual rankings or displacement to a teammate may result in an emotional crisis which only professional objective counselling can overcome.
Whitespace is available to help the transition of professional athletes into their following careers. The loss of intensity felt in competition and indeed the often lower income which professional athletes experience upon retirement necessitates dispassionate understanding and planning to transition successfully to a new productive life.
Whitespace will review and refine the key objectives of your athletic organisation to insure that the boardroom is contributing to the success in the competitive arena. We look to improve the teamwork which can transform a successful season into a dynasty.
"To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change, often."
