Dr. Gio Valiante is regarded as one of the most successful performance coaches in the world. He graduated with Bachelors and Masters degrees from the University of Florida, and a Ph.D. from Emory University where he studied Social Cognitive Theory under the world-renowned professor, Frank Pajares. Dr. Gio began applying SCT to golfers, and the results were immediate and compelling: over 50 professional wins on the LPGA and PGA Tours.
Simply by changing their psychology, Dr. Gio was helping golfers change the scoreboard. In football, he worked with the Florida Gators under Urban Meyer’s tenure and helped individuals players aggregate their work into a National Championship. He was invited by coach Sean McDermott to be the Head Performance Coach of the Buffalo Bills as the Bills were mired in a 17 year playoff drought. The results: 2 playoff appearances in the first 3 years.
Similarly, legendary investor Steve Cohen invited Dr. Gio to be the Head Performance Coach for his hedge fund Point 72 Asset Management where he oversaw 50 portfolio managers investing $20 Billion of AUM. Many of his portfolio managers had record settings years by using Dr. Gio to identify bias, critique their theses, and remove both fear and personal limitations
The results are the same everywhere Dr. Gio runs his playbook. Unprecedented success by committing to the Fearless process.
