DMQ Coaching

Our Decision Making Quotient, or DMQ, is similar to our Intelligence Quotient (IQ) in that it's a range of functions and processes in our brain which help us make decisions.  Just as we go to the gym to improve our muscle strength, or do brain games or exercises to keep our brains active, we need to practice and use our decision making techniques to optimise our performance. 

How the Brain Works

Below are a series of Workshops on DMQ Coaching which are available to help your team, club, coaches or anyone gain insight and share knowledge on tips and techniques to cope with stress and understand how to optimise your decision making.  But before that, click the button to get some more information on the information we go through and the concepts we teach.

DMQ Coaching

 

 

John is a Representative Level (formerly known as Level 2) Cricket Coach and can work with Cricketers looking to improve their Outdoor Cricket game at both a technical and mental level.  Not only can we provide the traditional cricket coaching assistance, but John's experience working with a wide range of people means he can assist children, teenagers and/or adults who struggle sometimes with high pressure situations, have some anxiety, or other issues which restrict their ability to maintain or improve performances.  

The hourly rate for general Cricket Coaching services is $75 per hour.  The venue and the overall pricing approach can be discussed and modified on a case by case basis to best suit your location and budget.  We're focused on helping people improve as people and cricketers, so while this is a commercial business, we take an inclusive approach to our services making sure we give access to as many people as possible to High Performance Coaching. Contact John on 0413 319 044 or john@inclusiveitconsulting.com.au to discuss further.

"John gave me some new ideas to try with my Juniors not only at Training but during Matches which I think will really help the kids cope with tough situations" - Goodwood Cricket Club Junior Coach

"I really liked your comments about Coaches remembering to keep in game messaging very short and focused, our players can only take on and retain so much while in match mode, so key words to help them be in a good decision making mode is a good point of focus in your workshop" - Netball Club Head Coach

"It was a good session as it reinforced messaging we had been giving our players, with the benefit of it being a different voice and coming from an Australian Coach" - State All Abilities Coach

"The discussion about the Brain Chemicals and the affect on the Emotional Brain (Amygdala) was really interesting, would love to hear more about that" - Netball Club Coach
