Assess and identify what you believe are the common threads that underlie the different theories of motivation.

  • In what areas are the major motivational theories similar and in what areas do they differ? As a practitioner, how should you successfully navigate the discrepancies between these motivational theories?
  • From your Premier Sport Psychology Mental Training System workbook, share your perspective about how an athlete’s values and core strengths can be tied to motivation and if these values and motivations differ between amateur/youth athletes and elite/professional athletes?
