Dr. Bob Winters – Sports Psychologist
“Understanding the GANDALF Effect” In this entertaining and uniquely “J.R.R. Tolkien” seminar, Dr. Bob Winters will highlight the importance of clearly understanding our worldwide audience by focusing on the primary needs, wants and desires of a student’s mindset when they are communicating to you their goals and aspirations of their lesson. Via an applied demonstration of a student describing their Pre-Shot Routine, Dr. Winters will assist the audience to understand the nuances of context, semantics, and interpretive logic when dealing with students of different languages, cultures, golfing vernacular and habitual familiarity to derive meaning to attain the goal-driven behavior that is consistent with the end-game of teacher and student.
Upon completion of this presentation, the attendee will understand the value of using clarification and probing techniques to reveal the underpinnings of what a student is thinking / feeling and how to be able to interpret it correctly and administer the appropriate swing strategy that resonates with their existing base of golf knowledge.
