WSU & Why I Founded the Stop The Drama! Campaign


Today I am going to answer a question I get asked very often – Why did I found the Stop The Drama! Campaign?  But first I need to say hello to my new friends out at Washington State University.  I had the wonderful opportunity to speak to their women’s basketball, tennis and crew teams recently.  What a great group of people.  On to the question – I was fortunate when I was doing my internship in grad school that I got to work part time doing sport psychology for a university and part time doing organizational development in the corporate world.  I noticed that the same problems were coming up in both places – poor communication, lack of conflict resolution, no leadership and teams that weren’t working well together.  And I was teaching them the same skills – effective communication, productive conflict, how to be a leader others will follow and great teamwork.  When I graduated I wanted to continue doing the same type of work but was unable to find a job that would let me. So I started my company Champion Performance Development ( and founded the Stop The Drama! Campaign because I believe those skills need to be provided to high school and college students, not just corporate executives.  If you have a question you would like me to answer, email me at [email protected].  I look forward to seeing you in future videos and I wish you the most from your potential!
