Emotional Stability and Pro-social Behavior


Many athletes have experienced struggles during life that impact their performance both on and off the field.  These difficulties can manifest in increased penalties, conflict with coaches and teammates, illegal behavior, drug use, financial problems, poor academic performance, professional derailment, or a reluctance to go to class and maintain eligibility.


TierOne can give you the tools to recognize and regulate emotion in the moment.  Using emotional intelligence, mindfulness-based training, and social cognitive development; TierOne helps athletes and coaches increase performance, build team cohesion, and improve overall well-being.



Most athletes only focus on the physical aspect of their sport, but recent research in sport performance and neuroscience has shown that the mind is much more important to performance than previously understood.


TierOne uses the most advanced science and technology to give you the competitive edge.

Today's sports are highly competitive - everyone is strong, fast, and skilled.  The cognitive capacities that manage attention and the emotional centers of the brain that drive elite performance (and X-Factor qualities) are largely untrained and  offer the largest performance increase at all levels of sport (high school, college, professional).


Whether it is preparing for your college career, the NFL combine, your rookie year in the NBA, nationals, Olympic trials, or your own PR - TierOne will give you the performance edge over your competition.

Recent scientific research shows that cortisol, released by the body during stressful situations,  significantly impacts performance.  The research showed that distress tolerance and emotional intelligence significantly impact the way the body reacts to stress and reduces the release of cortisol into the body.  Poise and mental toughness training significantly reduces the stress effect and increases self-confidence and athletic performance.  Talk to TierOneabout how to bring Mangudai © training to your school or program.



"It’s one thing to tell your athletes to be mentally tough, yet another thing to teach them HOW to be mentally tough.  Dr. Dutch and his TierOne program teach you HOW to teach your athletes to be mentally tough – giving your athletes the ability to keep their minds on what matters NOW, in the stress of the moment, in the heat of competition."

High School Cross-Country and Track Coach

Where mental toughness and poise are built


Maximizing Team and Individual Performance


Pete Carroll, Coach, Seattle Seahawks.  "The foundation of performance is trust and confidence, which allows you to focus.  I try to develop the confidence of the whole team so that they can perform without fear and play the way they're capable of." 


We're a relationship-based system.  It's based on our ability to interact with our players, to understand their needs, and, through those relationships, figure out how best to help them.  That's why we get such a great return from our guys because, after awhile, they know how consistent we are and that we're going to be there for them"


Michael Gervais, Psychologist, Seattle Seahawks.  "Pete is the only coach I know who has created a shared language between the coaches and the players that's completely grounded in the science of psychology."


Gervais teaches meditation, what the Seahawks call "tactical breathing."  The Seahawks method is a sophisticated blend of mindfulness and cognitive behavioral training to develop a "full presence and conviction in the moment."


"Confidence is the cornerstone of great performance, and it comes from just one place:  what we say to ourselves.  It must be grounded in credible conversations with yourself, which means you have to have a disciplined mind.  Part of the training is being mindful, on a moment-to-moment basis, of whether your are building or taking away from your confidence.  The second part is being able to guide yourself back to the present moment and adopt a positive mindset about what is possible."


Receiver Doug Baldwin struggled with negative thoughts that hampered performance when he started with the Seahawks.  He credits the mindfulness training for improving his performance.


Free Safety Earl Thomas used mind training to change his approach to the game and his life.  "It's an inner thing.  When you're quiet and don't say anything, you start to see the unseen.  That's why people need to be observant and listen.  When I turned my ears to listening, I improved, personally, and in everything."  Thomas says you have to meditate, "That's how you get into the flow."
