DeMatha Catholic Is the First High School Baseball Team to Use The Right Profile’s TAP 360 Pro-Level Mindset Assessment Tools to Better Develop Its Athletes


Hyattsville, MD (PRWEB) March 19, 2015

Although the Troutwine Athletic Profile (TAP) has been used by NFL, MLB and NBA teams for decades to better evaluate, coach and develop their athletes, it was not offered to college and high school athletic programs until late 2014. Many pro teams, including the Kansas City Royals, Washington Nationals and the New England Patriots, use the TAP as an integral part of their organization’s talent pipeline, development and mental conditioning programs. The Right Profile recently interviewed DeMatha Catholic high school’s head baseball coach, Sean O’Connor, about being the first high school baseball coach nationally to use the TAP in its athlete development program.

At the heart of the interview lies the main question for any prep-sport baseball fan – with a proven track record like that of DeMatha Catholic and a personal coaching resume that has earned Coach O’Connor an upcoming induction into the Baltimore Boys of Summer Hall of Fame later this spring, why add a pro-level system like TAP 360 to their program? Coach O’Connor was direct. “As I coach, I need to figure out what makes a player tick, what makes a player move on, and what is a great characteristic of an athlete and of an alumnus, that’s what sold me on the whole process.” Even though the coach says he knows these kids really well, he confessed that “the TAP takes it to a completely different level.”

Coach O’Connor has had all of his players take the TAP and is planning to use the TAP 360 reports to enhance player development and communications with his athletes. “If we have the tool to identify (player weakness and development opportunities) and help them, we are going to make them better citizens, better people, and better athletes.” That holistic approach extends to basic communications and trust. “If the players have a trust factor and we have a trust factor, we can be very successful.”

The full text of the interview is available on The Right Profile’s press and media page.

Develop Your Personal Brand As a Leader Workshop to Launch February 26-27, 2015 in Newport Beach, CA


Irvine, CA (PRWEB) November 04, 2014

On February 26-27, 2015 Glenn Llopis Group (GLG) will be hosting its popular workshop program – Develop Your Personal Brand As Leader in Irvine, CA. Glenn Llopis, a nationally recognized thought leader, bestselling author and contributing writer to Forbes, Harvard Business Review and Huffington Post will facilitate this high-impact two-day program that teaches business leaders to develop/manage their leadership brand identity to maximize their workplace influence and overview performance.

According to Llopis, “the uncertainty of the post-2008 economy has demanded more from the workforce. All too often, leaders have been forced to sacrifice their own identities in the rush of business necessity. Leadership can no longer live in a highly-structured, overly-defined box of silos, but rather must move into an interconnected, boundary-less ecosystem of diverse minds, ideas, and ideals – where it’s more about the role your personal brand plays rather than your job description alone. As such, leaders are now eager to reclaim those personal identities as the economy improves and opportunities return. In order for organizations to recruit and retain top leadership talent, they must enable them with a leadership brand identity that matters.”

Based on a survey conducted by the Glenn Llopis Group (GLG), less than 15% of leaders have truly defined their personal brands and less than 5% are living them consistently at work each and every day. Through group-think situational analyses, case studies and pre-work assessments, participants will:

•Learn how and why personal branding is no longer about self-promotion, but about trusting yourself to be a more effective leader and make your voice and identity respected

•Seamlessly deliver their most genuine executive presence that represents who they are and what they stand for

•Align their leadership role and responsibilities to more authentically amplify and create greater impact and influence

•Create their personal brand leadership value proposition

•Manage their personal brand by continually refining the answers to four critical questions that serve as the foundation for their ultimate workplace success and significance

•Experience GLG’s “speed branding” exercise where workshop participants obtain real-time feedback and valuable insights from their peers

Prior GLG workshop participants that have included leaders from Fortune 500 clients such as Home Depot, Coke, Catamaran, State Farm, Target, Walmart, Pepsico, and many others have described the workshop experience as “awakening, transformational, eye-opening,” with a 100% approval rating.
