Founded in 1998, Hargrove Leadership Services rebranded in 2017 as Better Choices Group LLC offering programs such as AMP UP and FreshSteps. These programs provide on-boarding and support services for student athletes and at risk learners. We have over 20 years experience of performance coaching with these and other diverse populations.
Over the past twenty years, we’ve listened and learned from the educational, mental health, performance management communities and our clients to understand the most appropriate role we can play to support positive choices.
Our approach is neuroscience-informed and evidence based. From corporate CEO’s to at risk students, our approach has consistently been to help our clients define their success outcomes: We ask “where do you want to go from here?” We remove the barriers—attitudinal and emotional—that can block or derail success and we coach our clients to develop the appropriate skill set to make positive choices and succeed.
Over the years we've heard horror stories and seen first hand the effects of life stressors. Here's what we know. Everyone has the ability to reach their highest potential if they have help removing the barriers, if they set positive goals and when they have a little support along the way. As coaches, we are all that and more to our clients.
"To perceive the world differently, we must be willing to change our belief system, let the past slip away, expand our sense of now, and dissolve the fear in our minds". - William James
When it comes down to it, we measure success by results for our clients. Let's face it. Most people know where they want to go. Our job is to remove the barriers that block success and help them get there.
Our unique, neuroscience-informed evidence based program leads to fresh perspectives and renewed focus. We use fun experiences like cooking, paint therapy, or loving on Barney, our therapy dog to help our client's blossom into their best selves. That's how we ensure your success!
We are different. Our approach and our programs are unique and effective. We become a partner in the growth process and as a result, the change in our clients is profound.
