Alpine Women in Sport (AWiS) is set to present the second in its 2023-24 webinar series on mental health, “The Coaching Life: Surviving or Thriving?”

Mental Performance Coach, Heather Cribbin, will be back to lead the discussion and provide tools to help create strategies and set boundaries. 

Monday, January 22, 2024 // 5:30 PM Pacific Daylight Time (8:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time) 

“Setting Boundaries and Other Strategies to Support Well-being.”

The concept and impact of well-being may be generalized, but the experience of what creates it will be profoundly personal. What is well-being, how do we notice when we don’t have it, and how can we cultivate it for ourselves? The ability to resource oneself, that is, find energy to persist, is essential in an industry that is built on a seasonal model that requires a great deal from its coaches. Intentionally choosing a mindset that fosters optimism can offset the stresses of a demanding environment. And that begins with setting boundaries—think time management, email and general communications, meetings, and more.

  • How do boundaries contribute to or protect your well-being?
  • What happens when boundaries are missing/crossed?
