The global pandemic has completely disrupted how, where, and when we work and added tremendous pressure to individuals and their families. Learn how to refocus and achieve your full potential from one of the world’s top mental performance coaches. In Train (Your Brain) Like an Olympian, Jean François Ménard provides the skills necessary to:
Elite athletes need to deal with multiple distractions, manage their stress levels, and have robust self-confidence to deliver podium-worthy performances. In our current work-from-home reality, these pressures are also experienced by those of us who are asked to do more with less and work longer hours with fewer distinctions between work and private lives. The pressure to perform at your best and be on the mark is always present, and let’s face it, being consistently great in an environment like this is easier said than done. Whether your performance realm is the playing field, the workplace, the home office, or the classroom, mental strength is no longer simply an asset. It’s an absolute necessity.
Thriving at work and in life doesn’t happen by accident: there are teachable skills that can help you stay positive, stay focused, and unleash your full potential. This book will give you exclusive access to techniques and strategies that help Cirque du Soleil artists, Olympians, and pro athletes become the best in the world.
