Olympic performance is not just a function of technical brilliance, it also requires perfect emotional state.
Dr Alan Watkins worked with members of the GB Olympic rowing team , including British gold medal winning rowers, Helen Glover and Heather Stanning (and their coach Robin Williams), to support the control of their emotional state at that crucial moment on the water at Eton Dorney.
Alan is an honorary senior lecturer in neuroscience and psychological medicine at Imperial College, London and an affiliate professor of leadership at the European School of Management, London. He originally qualified as a physician, has a first class degree in psychology and a PhD in immunology. Alan also runs Complete Coherence Ltd (CCL), a consultancy that brings the latest approaches in psychology and physiology to the human performance challenges faced by business leaders and sportspeople around the world.
When years of hard work fail to pay off, it may not be the training that's at fault, according to Dr Alan Watkins: "Olympic performance is not just a function of technical brilliance, it also requires perfect emotional state. Achieving that state frees your body to perform to its maximum. When nerves get hold of us and we fail to control our emotional state, we risk letting that 'fright or flight' mechanism take over."
