Differentiators

We’ve worked to create and manage a unique environment in which the interaction between the three major stakeholders regarding our mission receive a superior coaching experience with value delivered to all in a smooth, easy, and secure way.

Our goal is to show the mutually beneficial interaction between three stakeholders:

1. Professional Athletes – these athletes are the best in the world at their chosen profession, but can feel isolated because their world is highly competitive and they have few people in their world that they can truly trust.  By matching them with experienced elite professionals as mentors, we help to provide athletes with an opportunity to expand their network and interact with people who are just as driven as they are. The professional athlete gains a new network with their older and more experienced mentor to help them succeed in life after sports. 

2. Mentors – The EOS mentor is typically at the top of their field; a virtual mistress of the universe. These super successful professionals rarely interact with someone as driven and accomplished as they are and the professional mentee athlete is just that – the person at the top of their game who thrives under pressure. A benefit that the professional athlete adds to their mentor’s lives are experiences that are often new. The more interaction between the mentor and the athlete, the more they realize that they gain as much as they give. A recent interaction between a CEO and an Olympic medalist is a perfect example; the athlete has developed a personal relationship with their mentor and gave invaluable insight to help the CEO’s child in an athletic competition in a unique and authentic manner.

3. Organizations (Companies and Not-For-Profits) – CEOs and corporations are looking at ways to align their values with organizations of similar goals.  EOS aligns elite athletes, elite professionals, and elite not-for-profits to help all three accomplish their collective goals and leave a lasting, positive impact on society. For example, sustainability is a very big value in the world and it presents a tremendous opportunity to align professional athletes, companies, and not-for-profits to help hit tangible goals that can reduce the deterioration of our planet.

The opportunity to focus on a future beyond javelin with the aid of such professionals has been so fulfilling, and it has only just begun! This mentorship process has been challenging and exciting so far, which is exactly what I wanted for my life after track and field. It’s incredibly reassuring to have guidance in finding a new career.

Just as athletes rely on their coaches to prepare them for peak performance, EOS steps in to ensure that their athletes receive the guidance and career support necessary to continue to excel when it’s time to step off of the field.

The EOS executive education has given me the opportunity to learn more about business and corporate America in a way that is natural for my competitive personality as an athlete. Their “out of the box” methodology, combined with their structure, has been an ideal experience for me at this stage in my career.
