Training for Optimal Performance: Applications in Sport & Corporate Enterprise


2-Day Optimal Performance Training Workshop

There is increased interest in training for optimal performance and in the use of technology for enhancing effectiveness in sport, the boardroom, and other arenas. This course will cover seminal and emerging research and explore protocols for assessment and training optimal performance. It will uncover the culture of “peak performers” as well as the access-related issues and ethical considerations that accompany these populations. Each participant will implement protocols through interactive, computerized labs, and we will enjoy expanding our current training approaches together!

Workshop can be beneficial for anyone in training in a health-related field practicing with a license including, but not limited to psychologists, physicians, physical and sports medicine therapists.

Workshops are from 8.30 am to 5.00 pm.
