    • Sports

Today’s guest is Dr. Aimee Kimball (@AimeeKimball). Aimee has worked in a variety of peak performance settings, starting with the UPMC center for sports medicine, and her own private practice in Pittsburgh. In a decade as the mental training consultant for the Pittsburgh Penguins, she was a part of two Stanley Cup winning teams, and is currently the Director of Player and Team Development for the New Jersey Devils.
Following the hockey theme, Aimee has also been tapped as the mental performance coach for the USA Women’s Hockey team as they prepare for the 2022 Olympics. As if her dance card wasn’t already full enough, she also works in the business world, facilitating an extreme growth mindset and creating a mentality that helps leaders succeed at work and in life.
In this episode we discuss the tools that make Aimee successful in her work with elite performers, we deconstruct high performing cultures, and we look at the one key skill that allows those at their best to continue to grow and excel. There are so many actionable tools tucked in here that you’re going to want to listen and then listen again.
