My mission is to bring out the extraordinary in people

I create customized human performance solutions…

coaching, mentoring, training, speaking, leadership development, high performance culture and organizational consulting – to get you and your team beyond the top 5%. I help you to develop mindsets and implement methodology, grounded in both humanity and performance science, for breaking through hidden human barriers to achieving the bigger goals. I don’t solve a part of your personal or people problems. I solve the whole problem.

I hold a passionate belief in possibility for people, that there is more in you than you can see. I am driven by an obsession with human excellence, a fascination with human roadblocks, and a commitment to helping people resolve the roadblocks to high performance.

About Dr Sean R

I see a future where transformative education and experiences are accessible to all those open and willing to do the work to perform at higher levels, to make their lives and the lives of those around them better, whether that is business leaders, top athletes and professional coaches, dancers and musicians, or moms, dads and individuals. My mission is to spread an epidemic of positive, action-based self-confidence that stimulates growth, and extraordinary performance in people, empowering them with method and mindset to sustain the actions that drive positive change, and produce results.

  • PhD - Overtraining, Burnout, Stress and Injury

    I  wrote a 108,000 word PhD (never thought I would finish it!!) on overtraining, burnout, stress, and injury. Now I take the lessons learned from my research and help people to get the most out of their personal energy and motivation.

  • Community Hero

    During my 10 years living in Australia, I received a “community hero” award for saving the life of a drowning woman. The thing is, I don’t feel I am a hero. I do feel lucky that the universe gave me such a gift. It is an overwhelming feeling to be there for someone in their most dire time of need – I am honored to have been chosen on that day.

  • Constant Determination

    Missing out on my Olympic dream because of injury was tough, but it has made me even more determined to fulfill my even bigger dream of helping people to change their lives for the better, to find that bit of excellence that is in them.
