Jean François Ménard, Performance Psychology Specialist, Founder and President of Kambio Performance

When it comes to elite performance, the Olympic athlete must learn to be confident in his/her ability to manage pressure and concentrate despite multiple environmental distractions. The same applies in an office. Your brain must be able to face the day-to-day challenges effectively. Be aware that "mental toughness" is a skill that is no longer simply an asset. It has become an absolute necessity.

Being mentally strong allows you to be confident, to think clearly, to find calm during stressful moments and to improve decision-making. These are all essential elements that give you a competitive edge, ensure your success and that of your team.

This session will present, teach and train the mental skills necessary to let your potential shine and bring out the Olympian in you!
