Sport Industry Group is delighted to announce that Cognite, a specialist in team dynamics and leadership, has become an official partner of Sport Industry NextGen, the leading professional development program for the sports industry.

Founded by licensed psychologist Tom Young, Cognite works with sports and business clients to drive high performance by developing mindsets and connecting teams. Specializing in performance psychology, leadership and team dynamics, Cognite has worked at the highest level of professional sport, providing psychological support to organizations and individuals in the worlds of football, rugby and golf.

As part of this partnership, Cognite will organize two sessions for our NextGen Leaders, which were announced in early December. The first will be an interactive session focused on assessing the role of trust and community in team dynamics. The second session will cover the main takeaways from Tom’s first book, ‘The making of a leader ‘, providing a unique insight into the leadership principles, beliefs and strategies applied by leaders operating in high performance environments around the world.

Most recently, Tom was on the coaching staff of European Golfer and PGA Tour Tommy Fleetwood. In addition, he has been a consultant for the Belgian national football team, St Helens RLFC and the European Ryder Cup team.

About the partnership, Tom Young said: “I am delighted to partner with the Sports Industry Group and support the NextGen development program. It is an exciting and challenging time to work in the sport and these emerging leaders are at the forefront of it.
