    Creating environments of trust and connection for optimal performance

    My client recommended I reach out to Ronan due to the valuable work he is doing in building connection.
    Ronan is a facilitator whos work with groups involves a variety of methodologies like positive psychology, sports psychology, CBT, Compassionate Inquiry, PDMS, and the Hero's Journey. 
    Working with prison inmates, high performance athletes, top tier corporate groups and more, his ability to create a safe and energetic space to explore connection, growth and express vulnerability is simply phenomenal.
    Ronan discusses our universal expression of human needs, the power of connection, the common threads that connect elite athletes and convicted criminals and so much more in this fantastic conversation.

    Lessons from coaching 20,000 nerds to level up

    I've been reading Steve's articles for over 10 years. I love how he writes about fitness and makes it accessible to a community that in past had no real outlet to find relatable fitness content. 
    About Steve:
    Steve Kamb is an author, fitness coach, and the founder of NerdFitness.com – a worldwide community of nerds, geeks, and self-aware robots. After battling with his own health and fitness for six years, Steve finally had some success and realized that there must be other people out there fighting the same battle. Steve started Nerd Fitness in 2009 with a goal of helping other people like him remove every barrier — mental, physical, or emotional — that prevents them from changing and living healthier, happier lives. What started as a one-man side project has now evolved into a huge online community and movement.
