Event description

Description

Elite sport is an incredible performance laboratory: pressure is intense and results are easily measured. This year, after you've watched performers both triumph and falter in Pyeongchang, we hope you'll join us to debrief the lessons we can all learn from these incredible athletes and coaches. And, we'll set you up to watch the Paralympics that kick off on March 9th with a whole new perspective.

Over this Olympic and Paralympic cycle, our team has had the pleasure of working with numerous teams and athletes heading to the Games, including men's hockey, women's hockey, sledge hockey, curling and para-curling. Rooted in that experience, we'll be tackling the Olympic debrief from three angles:

Performance under pressure - how do athletes and coaches mentally prepare for major competitions, and what did we see at the Games that we can learn from?

Physiology and bio-feedback - in an era where many of us wear FitBits, Apple Watches, or other wearable devices, what can we learn from the way athletes used bio-feedback to perform, recover, and stay calm under pressure?

Coaching - how did our coaches lead through the highest stakes situations of their careers and what can we learn about inspiring others under pressure?

Our goal, as always, is to make this incredibly practical for 'the rest of us', while providing a view into the lives of performers operating at the extreme of human capability. We hope you'll join us!
