The CSF2 Enhancement Models are based on over four decades of scientific research and recognized best practices in the field of sport and performance psychology. The tenets underlying excellence in human performance are applicable to all professional occupations. The mental and emotional skills required to excel on the athletic field are similar to the skills underlying excellence on the battlefield, in the classroom, in the workplace, and at home. Given this understanding of human performance, CSF2 tailors the delivery of the program to meet the needs of a wide spectrum of Army organizations and populations.
