NEW YORK, NY – Gene Kobilansky, the assistant wrestling coach at New York University, has implemented an Art of Learning based mindset-training curriculum with his athletes with an aim to develop resilience and an incremental approach to wrestling and learning in general. “Our goal is to instill a love of learning and a focus on intrinsic goals and growth in our athletes. I believe if they focus less on winning the next match and more on loving the process, they’ll see higher levels of success,” explains Coach Kobilansky.
He is beginning his program with an exploration of what motivates people in their pursuit of mastery with assignments that focus on the idea of purpose, autonomy, incremental mindset, and resilience. He plans to continue this work with a focus on Investment in Loss and a depth over breadth approach to overcoming challenges and improving technical skills.
