Speakers Profile - Dr Sean Richardson

Performance Psychologist

Travels From:

Fee Range: E

Sean inspires organisations, individuals, and athletes to develop their high performance mindsets and build resilient businesses and teams. As the performance psychologist for top of the ladder AFL team, St Kilda Football Club, consultant to the Australian Ballet Company, and mentor to business directors and top executives in small businesses up to corporate, Sean has a keen sense of the types of thinking and behaviours that create excellence at the highest levels of performance!

Through his world class presentations, Sean offers insight into the practice of excellence in individuals and teams, and facilitates the application of high performance psychology to all aspects of an organisation - from strategic thinking, goal clarification, and team collaboration, to effective leadership communication and accountability cultures.

Sean acknowledges that for some, the current climate is characterised by economic uncertainty, constant transition, stress and anxiety, job insecurity, personal setbacks, and information overload. Whereas, for others the challenges of the 2009 have created opportunity and positive change for the year ahead in 2010. Regardless of where you are positioned in the market, however, Sean believes there are few things more important than being mentally tough - having the capacity to respond to chaos and uncertainty, the constant change and unpredictability of life.

Sean was born in Vancouver, Canada - the son of an Olympic rower, and himself a National Champion in rowing and windsurfing - he has grown up with high level performance in his blood. A long time academic, completing several research degrees in psychology (PhD and MA) as well as a BA, Sean has alway been eager to share ideas with the world - committed to helping others get to their highest levels of performance in business, sport, arts and life.
