5R Program

The 5R Program

Our evidence-based program provides coaches and sport psychologists with the opportunity to grow, together with their team, to a stronger sense of 'we' and 'us', in other words, a joint team identity. We do not only reflect on what makes the team unique, but also translate this renewed team identity into practice, thereby taking concrete steps to an improved team functioning. 

This 5R Traject was developed together with our Australian colleagues Prof. Alex Haslam and Prof. Nik Steffens of the University of Queensland. The 5R name stands for the 5 different phases, each starting with an R, that your team will complete; Readying, Reflecting, Representing, Realising, and Reporting. Each of these phases focuses on one central question, presented in the figure below.

In practice

The program consists of 4 workshops that the coach/sport psychologist will follow together with the entire team. The first workshop will include the Readying and Reflecting phase, the second workshop the Representing and Realising phase, followed by 2 Reporting workshops. You have two options here: 

You guide the workshops yourself:
  • We start with an orientation meeting with you as coach or sport psychologist in which we clarify the outline of the program. In dialogue, we decide on the further course of the program. 
  • You do not only get insight in the underpinning theoretical principles, but you will also receive practical information on the adopted exercises and the way these exercises should ideally be guided.
  • We provide the necessary supporting material so that you can independently work with your sport team.
You prefer professional guidance in conducting this program:
  • We start with an orientation meeting with you as coach/sport psychologist in which the outline of the program is clarified, as well as the underpinning theoretical principles.
  • In dialogue, we decide on the further course and timing of the program.
  • Thereafter, we guide your team throughout the 4 workshops of the program.

Combination with shared leadership?
