UNITED STATES – Wood is the founder and principal of Mars Coaching, where one of his coaching programs is, in fact, geared specifically to former athletes and coaches. He helps them harness the skills that allowed them to excel in sports and on teams and use them to accelerate their post-athletic lives. Likewise, he works with military veterans, firefighters, police and EMS providers to help them process service-related events and adapt and thrive in everyday life. 

“The strength of a team is truly in each individual member, yet people can sometimes lose sight of their personal growth when facing difficult situations and major transitions,” said Wood. “Interestingly, the same lessons that drive success for many individuals and groups competing athletically, are often transferrable for executives and corporate teams.  This reality led to the expansion of training programs designed to accommodate this audience.”
