Butler and Hardy’s performance profiling procedure provides athletes and their respective support teams with an athlete-centered performance assessment and monitoring tool. Since its inception, performance profiling has been frequently utilized within sport settings with sport psychology consultants/practitioners and athletes alike finding it a valuable tool to assist an athlete’s development. This chapter seeks to provide recommendations as to how to best deliver performance profiling in individual and team settings as well as highlight the alternative ways in which the technique has been adapted to suit different audiences and purposes. Performance profiling is a ‘natural application’ of Kelly’s Personal Construct Theory. The procedure acknowledges that individuals will differ in their interpretation of their performance situation and that these will evolve over time. Doyle and Parfitt explored the predictive and construct validity of the performance profile.
