Mastering Your Mindset for Peak Performance

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • Top performers have learned to adapt their mindsets to prepare and execute on all levels and especially in high pressure situations. There is an extra level of dedication and commitment to qualify for the Olympics and beat out the nation’s top athletes. There is an even higher level required to make it to the podium.

    Preparation, taking constructive criticism, accountability, determination, dedication, process management and strategic goal setting all played a key role in Andrew Haley’s success. Andrew’s high performance mindset was constantly evolving so he could commit to days and nights in and out of the pool. Over time, his elite mindset became a natural process of his everyday work. Repetition and focus enabled him to master himself and his craft which led to his Hall of Fame swimming career and multiple Gold Medals and World Records.

    Our minds are the key to unlocking our abilities and unleashing us to our full potential. The road to Gold is not for everyone and is not an easy feat, however we can all learn from the mental state of mind an athlete curates and maintains to bring them to each step on a path to reach the top.

    This talk shows your team that no matter the circumstances we can be prepared and ready for action. You will learn to banish self-doubt and fear and tap into that extra level needed at work or at home. You will learn to create a mindset that can take you to new heights, set realistic and achievable goals to achieve dreams, meet expectations and realize there are no limits to your capabilities.

Cambridge & Kitchener-Waterloo

I have received feedback from many of our guests and they have indicated that your speech was incredibly motivational. I heard on more than one occasion you have inspired them to either improve their physical activities or elements of their family life.

Manulife Financial

Your message of determination in the face of adversity was extremely impactful to me. The line I was most significantly left with was – ‘tough times do not last, tough people do.’ Your talk encouraged me to take a step back and really assess what I hold to be meaningful, and, most importantly, to list out goals that I have until now only seen as unachievable. You have proven that any height is reachable.

Attendee
Healthcare Supply Chain Network Conference

Andrew was simply amazing and a pleasure to work with. Someone who truly has a passion for sport, life, family and people. We had a very diverse audience and Andrew was a very down to earth speaker who everyone could easily connect to. I have heard several top speakers speak and he is up there with the best. I received lots of positive feedback.

Recreation Coordinator, Sports Services
City of Brampton

Our entire team enjoyed working with you. You have a wonderful stage presence and a great story to tell. You were very well received by our attendees. It is always a great sign when the delegates are talking about the opening keynote speaker during the closing session.
