Program Overview

In sports, athletes need to perform at their best to run the fastest, throw the furthest or jump the highest to win medals. Everything comes down to that single second, minute or game when athletes need to be performing at their peak. Their physical and mental training is designed for peak performance at the critical moment. Like athletes, employees need to achieve peak performance at certain critical times such as:

  • Sales – Making a bid presentation for a big sales deal, closing deals at the end of the quarter or taking to a retain an existing account.
  • HR/Learning – Developing an HR/Change plan for the impending merger, announcing retrenchments or a go live for LMS.
  • Manufacturing – Reacting to a serious safety incident or go-live of a new facility.
  • Marketing – New product launch or reacting to a major campaign by competitors.
  • IT – Major systems upgrade or being hacked (denial of service).
  • Finance – Year end reporting or reducing debt when the share price falls.

Every employee, athlete or individual performs at two levels; “business as usual” and peak performance (high stakes). In this webinar, a panel of experienced Learning professionals with an interest in sports performance management and training, discuss this important but hardly talked about topic.
