25 year old 6ft 4 professional rugby player, loves his job. It’s fair to say Adam is a man with contrasting interests. These range from his playing with the Glasgow Warriors to talking resilience!
Since leaving high school Adam has been part of the Glasgow Warriors rugby team. He has played over 50 caps for the club and 6 caps for Scotland.
Over the years Adam has explored some of his other interests. One of which is a huge passion for learning about the human mind. His exploration in growth mindset was initially linked to living life as a professional athlete. He was someone who always wanted to get the best out of himself.
After a life changing insight happened to Adam when he was 22, his fields of exploration have expanded and is really interested in what all the great eastern and western psychological & spiritual traditions all share in common.
Thinking Inside-Out Is The Way Of (our) Glasgow Warriors!
He believes here in the western culture we have overlooked an essential part of ourselves. In terms of resilience, Adam believes that youngsters and adults live a life of always trying to get somewhere that they currently are not in order to feel better. Of course, Adam encourages always growing and following your dreams. He believes it’s important and valuable for people to understand clearly that who they are right now in this moment. Seeing yourself as whole, perfect, not broken and as resilient as any person out there. Once this has been recognised, living with more ease, connection, engaged learning and growth mindset, wellbeing and happiness are can all be developed.
Adam thrives delivering group work with both primary and secondary pupils. Recently, in St Matthews's Academy in Salcoats, Adam had the group of S4 pupils enraptured in a Q & A session about his resilience and focus on effort and of course his adventures with Glasgow Warriors!
Adam says "I am delighted to be joining Teachmindset working around my Glasgow Warriors full time commitments, and helping boost the resilience and confidence of children and young people across the UK and beyond".
