Psychological/Tactical/Technical Consulting Review- NFL- OT Jared Veldheer

"Working with James over the past few years has completely changed my psychological paradigm. I have learned to look at life's obstacles from an objective standpoint; leading to an enhanced emotionally regulated state.  Our weekly discussions were always insightful. The tactical knowledge James shared manifested in a very useful and practical way.  The best part of our sessions was the proactivity it created which allowed me to handle any future hurdles much more easily.  I h

Psychological Consulting Review- NFL- Trent Sherfield (AZ Cardinals)

My experience with James was nothing short of extraordinary! My mental approach to my game has changed & it has changed my playing style in ways I couldn't imagine, I'm more focused, and more aware of my thoughts. James has also helped me see the world outside of football in a different way, a more positive and neutral way. If you are wanting to change your life, I highly suggest you take advantage of what James has to offer!  Trent Sherfield

Psychological Consulting Review- NFL- DJ Swearinger (Oakland Raiders)

I appreciate James to the fullest! He helped me to understand that we are in control of every single situation that we encounter no matter than magnitude of disrespect, judging, or just in general. He helped with self observation & help me understand that you have to practice these things on a daily basis! By doing that you will find yourself more in control of turning the negative to a positive! He also helped me with self awareness, self evaluation, and the practicing of staying cool, calm

Psychological Consulting Review- Military Special Operations

Psychological Preparation Review I originally reached out to James for physical programming however was quickly drawn into his psychological preparation training as well. The whole operator concept is often preached and the importance of training mind is significantly more important than training body. Training the mind has often been an obscure and intangible concept to me, however James has sense changed my opinion and my knowledge of the subject. James and myself utilized weekly 30

Psychological Consulting Review- General Psychology

I originally met James in 2009 and have continued to become immersed in his work.  Most recently, I hired James for his Psychological Consulting services.  I had an idea of what COULD be but I was unsure of HOW to go about it.  I have several very important events in the near future and I wanted to be as prepared as possible.  Over the course of a short period, after speaking with James, it has become abundantly clear that my disposition has changed.  His choice of tools / thought exercises in a

Psychological Consulting Review- General Psychology

As a young adolescent, psychological counseling was encouraged- due to the traumatic upbringing I was experiencing. I denied it and refused to take part. I felt they wouldn't understand, and I would end up in some insane asylum if I opened up to them. However, I stumbled upon James due to my pursuit in coaching, but this transitioned into weekly psychological consultations, which was very impactful for me. Finally, someone who I felt safe to share my thoughts and experiences in which I felt no j

Psychological Consulting Review- British Royal Navy

"I initially used James' services for physical preparation for the military, but I had not fully covered psychological preparation. I specifically wanted to improve my ability to think under pressure, to process information better and thus make better decisions, and also to look at resilience and resolve. James initially provided me with great understanding which was the bedrock for practice exercises and specific strategies I could use and work on. The consults helped me greatly and I performed

Culture begins with genetically transferred information at the level of our genes and traces back throughout our genetic ancestry. §  Once born, it becomes a set of ideas that influence all thought and behavior. §  Throughout life, it manifests as the collective of human intellectual achievement. §  It is the bedrock from which every conceivable action emerges and must not be thought of merely as a set of ethical values that resides in posters on the walls of your building.

Esports/Business Consulting Review

I have been working with James since 2015. Amongst many of James’s talents, I find him to be the most brilliant sounding boards I have ever come across. With each consultation, I’m blown away by his level of thinking as well as his objective reasoning and advice. Most importantly, he forces you to think and question what you think you may know and develop iterations of your current models of understanding. Taking all this a step further, his psychological preparation consultations have been one

Consulting Review- Women's Club Rugby National Champions

1)    “Working with James for a second cycle of coach education consulting has proved invaluable in advancing my understanding of the substrates of high performance sport.  Completing multiple series’ of consulting allowed us to discuss each of the Governing Dynamics multiple times in successive detail; and just as with training or preparation, each time we revisit a concept we are able to develop a deeper knowledge and deeper understanding of the content to then re-integrate into the program.

Sport Preparatory Engineering Consulting Testimonial/Evaluation   In 2018 I did a full Governing Dynamics consultation with James Smith. Spending 8 weeks diving into each area of the Governing Dynamics of Coaching. Throughout the last year I revisited each area to further my understanding. When doing this I really drew an interest to Sport Preparatory Engineering. I myself have used technologies such as GPS for 7 collegiate and NFL seasons to help in managing the loading of Americ

James Smith Consultation Review I have read James’ book The Governing Dynamics of Coaching multiple times. I’ve dissected many sections throughout the book to further my understanding of certain topics. Not until I began consulting with James did I obtain complete clarity and understanding of the Governing Dynamics, both as general principles along with specific application to the sport of American football. He has opened my eyes to depth of knowledge necessary to competently engineer a hol

Consulting Review- MLB Major League Director of Peak Performance

Working with James has been nothing short of refreshing. His knowledge and skill set, which allows him to navigate multiple domains, is unparalleled.  The chasm that exists in sport is undeniable, and James has not only revealed where these breaches are prevalent, but has given us ample remedies. It is incumbent on us, as the architects of our athletes’ experience, to competently apply the unification of these principles. James is light years ahead of where sport culture needs to go in terms of

Consulting Review- Irish Gaelic Football

I recently had the pleasure of having 4 consultations with James via Skype. The topics of conversation varied, however, they were mostly pertaining to topics within his book, “The Governing Dynamics of Coaching”. I have been following James’s work for several years, so it was brilliant to be able to discuss his ideas and arguments with him personally. Anyone who thinks that a consultation with James will be an hour of him spoon feeding you quick fixes is sorely mistaken. James encourages yo

Consulting Review- Head Coach Youngstown State University Football (Soccer)

James provided four quality consults that afforded me new knowledge in the psychological and tactical preparation subject matter. The information that was discussed began with objective elements which were then clarified through analogies to improve the understanding. I would recommend reading the book, The Governing Dynamics of Coaching, or delving into the subject matter through outside sources before retaining James otherwise a general overview will be needed which may waste valuable time dur
