Top Performance Coaches - Valor Coaching and Coaching Framework

Valor Coaches:
Inspirational. Relatable. Exceptional.

What does an Olympic athlete or performance psychology expert know about your work?

Our coaches know pressure. They have performed on the world's toughest stages as CEOs, professional athletes, equity derivative traders, and military specialists, with years of experience in performance mindset coaching.

Valor Coaches know firsthand how to excel in hyper-competitive situations and how to unlock that performance in others. And from their experience coaching top performers around the globe and their expertise in the science of excellence they know how to help others be in the right mindset, at the right time - consistently.

"I enjoyed [my coach’s] clear enthusiasm for his job and his interest in getting to know me and my goals. It was helpful to be reminded of the idea that what we work on together can have impact beyond the professional realm and enhance my personal life as a husband, father, coach, and friend."

"I wasn’t sure what to expect at all, but walked away feeling better and more focused. Speaking to Dr. Amy was incredibly easy. She was very engaged and was able to break down the words I was saying into actionable chunks. I can’t wait for my next session."
