Seattle and Los Angeles – April 2, 2019 – Super Bowl Champion, six-time Pro Bowl quarterback and entrepreneur Russell Wilson debuted today Limitless Minds, a business coaching consultancy dedicated to optimizing performance and enriching culture within some of the world’s top organizations and elite performers. Through Limitless Minds, Wilson will bring his experience with elite competitive thinking, cognitive strength and mental conditioning from sports into the corporate world.
Limitless Minds was founded by Wilson, his brother, former Division 1 football and baseball player and biotech leader Harry Wilson, the renowned mental conditioning coach Trevor Moawad, named by Sports Illustrated as the best ‘brain trainer’ in sports, and longtime healthcare and biotech leader DJ Eidson.
“Mental conditioning and mindset training have been a critical part of my performance on the field throughout my career,” said Russell Wilson. “Trevor is the best in the world at developing these skills for athletes and coaches. Throughout our relationship, we realized that the skills we work on can benefit many more people. I’m thrilled to pair Trevor’s expertise with Harry and DJ’s business acumen to help more people identify and develop these skills within themselves.”
The company focuses on helping management and their employees develop the skills for handling adversity in high pressure, competitive environments, analyze self-motivation, grit and resilience within workplace populations and identify and build the key mindset to create high performing workforces. With this focus, the vision is that Limitless Minds can positively impact the adversity tolerance for an entire organization.
Moawad, who has worked with Nick Saban, Jimbo Fisher, Kirby Smart, Major League Baseball, U.S. Special Operations Community, the NBA, UFC and more, established himself as a category leader in mindset training by adapting his teachings to be practical and functional. He’ll publish his first book It Takes What It Takes, with Harper One, a division of Harper Collins, in the winter of 2020. The book, with a foreword by Russell Wilson and written with Sports Illustrated Senior Writer Andy Staples, distills Moawad’s work with elite athletes, coaches, special forces, business leaders and more into real-world, battle-tested strategies on how to manage negativity, thrive in adversity and be your best.
Limitless Minds’ core platform will focus on neutral thinking and a deeper look at the concept of choice, a set of principles pressure- and battle-tested in some of sports’ biggest moment. A critical component of Wilson’s record-setting success in the NFL, neutral thinking is unbiased, truth- and behavior-based thinking centered on the minimization of negative behaviors and language.
“The ability to develop a consistent mentality is universal. Period. It will remain a core tenant to success in any field, whether it happens by accident or with intentionality,” said Moawad. “Russ and I realized that both the business and educational communities weren’t being taught the basic fundamentals of thinking that could allow for real-time situational adjustments in addition to long-term development. Harry and DJ had lived this, and after we all visited Harvard Business School and other top corporate industry leaders, it was clear that there was both a market need and opportunity for people with similar performance aspirations to Russell – people who recognize that they don’t need problems to improve.”
The company’s formation stems from the relationship between Russell Wilson and Moawad, who have worked together on mindset training since before Wilson entered the NFL Draft. The pair have worked on developing neutral thinking and building cognitive strength. Wilson and Moawad used this methodology in partnership with ESPN for SportsCenter Special: QB2QB with Russell Wilson ahead of the 2018 NFL Draft. Over four episodes, Wilson and Moawad mentored top prospects like Baker Mayfield, Mason Rudolph, J.T. Barrett and Saquon Barkley on managing the adversity and pressure of an NFL career.
Operating in stealth mode, Limitless Minds has brought its accessible and easy-to-understand coaching to businesses in biotech and healthcare, tech, wealth management and more. The company offers keynote trainings, assessments, leadership summits, train-the-trainer and digital learning content. The co-founders want Limitless Minds to be known for its ability to customize and pull-through training for clients that are committed to helping their employees reach peak performance, not only in their roles, but in every aspect of their life.
