JUST like any ath­lete can ben­e­fit from phys­i­cal train­ing, they also can ben­e­fit from brain train­ing. But Rob Gron­beck, sports psy­chol­ogy coach and founder of the Brain Room, said ath­letes aren’t the only ones who can take their per­for­mance up a notch. “Pro­fes­sion­als can also ben­e­fit from this type of train­ing,” Gron­beck said. “More and more cor­po­rates are com­ing in, see­ing the work we’re do­ing with ath­letes and think­ing ‘why can’t I be more fo­cused and more com­posed’. But we are not just cog­ni­tive be­ings ei­ther — we also need to be able to bounce back from set­backs. That’s a skill that can be trained.”
