Our approach combines skillset with mindset to achieve maximum performance:

IGNITE thinking

Founded on a belief in limitless human potential, we have over 45 years’ experience providing mental skills training and helping athletes, coaches, and organizations around the world tap into their mindset, drive, and energy. By delving into individual and group motivation, you will unleash your team’s creative thought process and uncover blind spots that may be impacting performance.

ALIGN goals

As you ignite the fresh thinking of your team, we help you align your goals across your entire organization to inspire new levels of passion, engagement, and excitement. Through a partnership with TPI, you will blend strategy (what, when, why) with technique (skill development of how).

ACCELERATE performance

The velocity you achieve when you combine a new mindset and alignment produces results at a speed you never thought possible. Through effective goal setting, both individually and as part of the team, your organization will continue to persist, even in times of adversity.

CULTURE matters

Culture is the shared way of thinking, behaving, or working that exists in a team or organization. Think of it as a collective mindset. Creating new ways of thinking will impact all aspects of your culture, so our tools and processes are designed to sustain the new levels of performance within your team for years to come.

From English Premier League players and the Phoenix Suns NBA basketball team to national and international soccer and hockey teams, The Pacific Institute’s coaches are making a powerful impact in the world of sports.

“I am very cognizant of the fact that leadership is given to me by others, but I am also cognizant of the fact that it’s my duty to lead, and make that choice every day to lead, understanding that I serve this group and always serve the greater good. The Pacific Institute, the mentors I have, the books I read, all impact who I am as a leader.”

Pat Chun, Former Vice President and Director of Athletics, Florida Atlantic University

“We understand it takes talent to be successful. It takes opportunity. But the third thing that is really the most important is what kind of character, attitude, thoughts, habits, and priorities on a day-to-day basis that you have, to bring all that to fruition."

Nick Saban, Head Coach, University of Alabama Crimson Tide football

“One of the main things we used all the time is the expectation that there’s the unshakable belief that coaches have in you, in your abilities, and we had such a clear picture. We did a really great job of conveying that picture, and the students did a great job of changing those expectations and being open. They really were open to what we were doing and trying.”

Stephen Frazier Wong, Head coach of the Clemson rowing program, formerly head coach at Nova Southeastern

“This is a tremendous way to make the world a better place. The curriculum allows you to dream further than you’ve ever dreamed before; dream outside the box. [PX2] allows you to try everything you can to get there and be the person you need to be to get there.”

Lindsay Mintenko, USA Swimming

“It was like a rebirth because I realized there was a way to deal with everything – that this could help me grow as a person, too.”

Kirk Gibson, Major League Baseball
