The Process

Kayle signed up for one year of coaching. Together we set goals and milestones using OKRs. The process consisted of working simultaneously on three key areas:

Improve focus and grit by enhancing Kayle Wooll’s mindset. Kayle had to answer the following questions:

  • What is my mission and vision?

  • What is my Why?

  • How do my core values contribute to my mission?

  • How do my belief system control my outcomes?

  • What are my key leading principles? 

Improve mental, emotional, and physical performance by using several techniques

I helped Kayle train his body and mind to become a better aircraft aerobatic pilot during this phase. We conducted visualization sessions for mental rehearsal to improve his Neuroplasticity. Kayle started meditating to increase precision and stay calm under pressure. He doubled up in fitness Training to increase his core and back strength. And he learned how to use positive self-talk to improve resilience and better manage emotions.

Improve personal brand and social presence

Part of Kayle’s objective was to become an inspiring figure for his peers and the generations to come. For this to be possible, we had to work on Improving Kayle’s social presence. I helped Wooll Improve his content and publish it more frequently on his social media. Kayle also planned to attend airshows to become more known and visible in the aerobatics scene.


It was a great pleasure working with Kayle. He is very disciplined and self-motivated. He has an exemplary focus and determination, which will lead him to get the results he wants out of his aircraft aerobatics career. Kayle Wooll came to visit me in Indonesia, where we shared a surf session. As for today, Kayle continues to win in life and sports, inspiring his peers and the generations to come.
