What They’re Saying

See what groups have to say about presentations by Dr. Eddie:

I have purchased over 200 lecture sets and this course is one of the BEST!! It considers every aspect of life goals, sports performance, being a parent coach, the team, sports goal accomplishment as we age, etc.. I am not going to recap each lecture as some do; and I do appreciate their detail. The Professor is excellent and obviously an expert in the field, in addition to being a parent coach and sharing his personal errors as such. The course covers the mental and physical sides of performance from all ages, and I greatly enjoyed the final lecture on the aging athlete (I just turned 70!) and it helped me put my health and performance goals into perspective. This course can be enjoyed from either audio, or video (I did video). Again, OUTSTANDING course and Professor!! I look forward to future courses by Dr. O’Conner!!

I Wish I Had This Course 50 Years Ago!! Excellent! -

I work with the finest professors and content experts over a wide range of academic and professional disciplines. Dr. Eddie is one of the very best. He is a hard-working and accomplished professional, a caring and supportive coach, and a charming, upbeat, and enthusiastic presenter.

Catherine Lyon - Senior Academic Content Supervisor - Great Courses

The swimmers appreciated your point of view on how everyone has feelings of doubt, fear, and uncertainty. While most other sports psychologists focus on trying to silence those with positive thinking, you made it clear to our athletes that everyone has those feelings. Our coaching staff noticed a change in their attitude and perspective the following practice.

Brandon Converse - Head Coach - East Grand Rapids Aquatics Waves

Thank you for your outstanding presentation on the important subject of “Employee Burnout”. The feedback from all attendees was that they found the subject content valuable and the delivery easy to digest and understand.
