The Olympic Games in Rio were a grand spectacle, with countries from across the world showcasing their ‘best of the best’. Many of these athletes had less than a minute to make the performance of their lifetime. With years of preparation, and a country behind them, the intense pressure to physically perform could be disastrous without the proper mental preparation backing up their talent.

Most of us will never compete in the Olympic games, but we are all under pressure from our employers to perform at a high level. So what can the successes of world class athletes teach us? Can Canadian employers operationalize some of these keys to success to create excellence in the business world?

Jean François (JF) Ménard is a mental performance specialist who works directly with athletes to help them achieve excellence. At the Rio games, JF helped Canadian athletes bring home a gold and bronze medal! In this webinar he will explain how performing in the Olympics and performing in the corporate world have many parallels. Corporations are expected to produce excellence on a day to day basis, and some could argue that employees are expected to perform at a high level more often than Olympic athletes.

Webinar Highlights

In this 60-minute session, JF will explore a few keys to success that can help organizations create corporate Olympians including:

  • The rigors of performing on demand
  • Dealing with pressure, stress, and expectations in the workplace
  • How to use visualization
  • How to remain energized for the day, the week, the quarter, and the business calendar
  • The power of confidence and how to build it
