Basic Psychological Skills

Part I:
Compare and contrast the apparent effectiveness in enhancing sport performance for two of the following basic psychological skills: goal-setting, relaxation, self-talk, and imagery. Critique the research literature in the two skills that you choose and provide a conclusion regarding which skill is most empirically supported. Provide support for your conclusion. Follow APA guidelines for writing and citing sources.

Part II:
Based on your understanding of the mechanisms for the effectiveness of goals and the goal-setting guidelines presented in this module, design a goal-setting program for either an individual athlete or team in a sport of your choice. Specify the time frame for the goal-setting program (preseason, during season, or combination), and provide details related to how you would implement your program, such as the outcome goal is to increase free throw shooting percentage from 55 percent to 70 percent.

Write a 2–3-page essay and present it in Microsoft Word document format


You work in an advertising firm, and your company has secured a project to design an advertisement for a budget airline, SCOOSH Pte Ltd. A design team has been established to tackle this design project for SCOOSH.

You have been appointed as the leader of this diverse workgroup. Your team members vary in terms of their gender (male/female), age (Millennials to Generation X), nationality (Singaporeans vs non-Singaporeans) and specialization (business, arts, psychology etc.). Furthermore, they are working together for the very first time on a design project like this.

Based on empirical research on workgroup diversity (e.g., Milliken, Bartel & Kurtzberg, 2003), examine and recommend how you can harness the creative potential in your team to come up with an advertisement for SCOOSH, while avoiding the perils and pitfalls of working in a diverse workgroup.
