Learn how to unleash your full potential at work from one of the world’s top mental performance coaches. You will learn how to:
• Deal with stress
• Face difficult moments with a constructive mindset
• Remain confident even when feeling vulnerable
• Be comfortable with the uncomfortable
Elite athletes need to deal with multiple distractions, manage their stress levels, and have robust self-confidence to deliver podium-worthy performances. These days, it’s the same in the workplace. In today’s fast-paced, competitive work environments, employees and corporate leaders are asked to do more with less, take on bigger files, and work longer hours. The pressure to perform at your best and be on the mark is always present, and let’s face it, being consistently great is easier said than done. Whether your performance realm is the playing field, the office, or the classroom, mental toughness 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 unleash your full potential. Mental performance coach Jean François Ménard will give you exclusive access to techniques and strategies that he uses to help Cirque du Soleil artists, Olympians, and pro athletes become the best in the world.

This book was received as an ARC from ECW Press in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.
I never read a book like this before. I workout a lot so I know the training and mental toughness that is required to get the results you want. Now, you can actually train your brain like you would train your body but instead of exercise its with brain teasers. I love to read but there is a lot I do not know and this book showed me how to recover my facts and properly go to the right sources to find the most accurate answer and feel just as accomplished as finishing a marathon. This is definitely a book that not only our patrons will enjoy but I can definitely benefit from also.
We will consider adding this title to our Self Help collection at our library. That is why we give this book 5 stars.
This book is like having a mental coach at your beck and call, all you have to do is open the book and read. The authors share stories of phenomenal people they’ve worked with along the way of pursuing their big dreams and goals, along with lessons and insights for you to pursue your goals. Training your brain is just as important, if not more so, than training your body, and this book definitely offers the key to finding the self-confidence within yourself to do so. Not just a book for athletes, but anyone wanting to change their thoughts to change their life for the better and go after their dreams.
