Human energy is the most critical resource businesses have. But in today’s 24/7 environment, the constant pressure to perform means organizations are asking more of their employees than ever before. The problem is that without the right training, the demands on employees’ energy inevitably exceed capacity, resulting in sub-optimal performance, disengagement, health issues, and poor work-life balance.

The Corporate Athlete Course helps empower individuals to manage and expand their most critical resource for high performance, their energy capacity, to meet the ever-increasing demands and become more productive and effective under pressure without sacrificing their health and happiness.

The Corporate Athlete® Course is based on the sciences of performance psychology, exercise physiology and nutrition.  This Keynote includes an overview of this multi-disciplinary Energy Management Technology.
