FIND A COACH : Sebastian Little
Born and raised in Cheshire CT, Sebastian played a variety of sports growing up, eventually finding his way to Yale University where he had the opportunity to play varsity football. During his senior campaign, he tore his ACL, MCL, and meniscus after a low sideline hit. Over the next year, the setback challenged him in every way and forced him to grow as a player, leader, and person - returning to the field 9-months later and contributing on the field in his 5th and final season. Through this experience, he draws the importance of patience and living the process.
Throughout his academic tenure, Sebastian had the opportunity to work and partner with nationally recognized mental game coach Brian Cain. He then completed his senior thesis under the supervision of Director Marc Brackett of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, designing a high school curriculum on Emotionally Intelligent Leadership and researching the relationship between motivation, emotion, and passion in sports performance.
Sebastian started his own company combining the research and application of sport psychology, leadership, and emotional intelligence and delivering presentations to athletes and coaches. He serves as a speaker and mental performance coach where he coaches and works alongside high school and college athletic coaches to build leadership competencies and emotional intelligence within teams.
Sebastian currently works at the McChrystal Group, a leadership development and management consulting firm specializing in organizational adaptability. During his tenure, Sebastian has managed multiple client projects and now leads the firm’s experiential learning line of effort, designing innovative and creative frameworks that engage learners, increase retention, and drive team cohesion.
Sebastian currently resides in the DC area. He loves superheroes, nerdy podcasts, corny quotes, and chocolate milk.
