Graham Betchart is the director of mental training for Lucid Performance Inc. ([@trainwithlucid])( He is also the mental skills coach for many elite athletes, including several collegiate and professional basketball players. He has worked with the No. 1 draft pick in the last three NBA Drafts ('14, '15, '16), the NBA Player’s Association, USA Basketball and many other organizations. Betchart is passionately seeking to unlock the full potential in each individual he works with.
