William James Moore, M.Ed., is a former scholarship athlete, the author of the book On Character and Mental Toughness, a sought after speaker, a decorated secondary school educator, and an accomplished high school and NCAA Division 1, 2, and 3 coach.
Welcome! I appreciate your interest.
The success of the teams I work with is not due to me of course, but rather the result of the emphasis these leaders place on the development of character and mental toughness in their programs. We both know that improvement in these areas helps student-athletes to achieve to their potential and mitigate the pitfalls that can be devastating to both the student-athlete and your program.
As a longtime NCAA and high school coach and public school educator, I feel I have a better understanding of your needs and challenges than many of the other speakers you may be considering. I am affordable and effective in instituting and reinforcing a powerful mindset that gets results.
Following the success of my book, On Character and Mental Toughness, and my keynote presentation at the IMLCA convention I was invited to speak to men’s and women’s teams in a variety of sports and athletic departments as a whole in the Ivy League, Big East, Northeast 10, Commonwealth Coast, NEWMAC and NEC. Many of these teams went on to have one of their better seasons in recent years. In addition to speaking with these groups, I have provided pragmatic professional development to administrators and teaching staffs as a whole and have been a clinician at multiple clinics. I have also worked one on one with business leaders from a variety of fields. Achieving performance to potential is a universal concern and not limited to a particular field or endeavor.
The Character Way improves organizational culture by instituting a common vision and shared vocabulary. This clarifies discussions, responsibilities, daily decision making and accountability. Character is strengthened as participants recognize how they will take either The Character Way or The Easy Way in each of their daily decisions. Participants also learn how to consistently maintain their character under pressure by developing crucial mental toughness skills.
The presentation of The Character Way can take the form of one to three hour talks, seminars, or workshops and is tailored to meet the needs of the host and audience. Groups have funded the program through professional development funds, parent donations, and conference NCAA speaker funds. I am available evenings and weekends from December through June.
Please feel free to contact me at your convenience so you can share your needs and I can send you and your group a free e-book copy of On Character and Mental Toughness. You can reach me at coachbillmoore @ gmail, or @coachbillmoore via Twitter.
