Peak Performance Workshop

Peak Performance Workshop


(In-Company) Classroom


4 hours




English & Dutch

How are top athletes able to cope with the immense pressure of competition while thousands of spectators are looking at them? This Peak Performance workshop reveals the parallels that business performance has with sporting performance. Think of aspects like dealing with pressure, embracing challenge or breaking through adversity. 

You will receive practical techniques to get you prepared for those situations where you need to perform at your best possible level: the presentation to the Board for the project that will change your career, the sales pitch for that one big deal, … 

Those techniques will mainly focus on improving your self-confidence, on focusing on the elements you can control and on striving to achieve success rather than to avoid failure. 

Course objectives

At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:  

  • Improve your mental preparation for an upcoming pressure situation   
  • Avoid pitfalls that usually cause stress  
  • Apply simple yet effective tricks that help you in:  boosting your confidence, feeling in control of the situation  and/or focusing on achieving success rather than on avoiding failure  

Course outline

The workshop takes you through a step-by-step process that helps you in your mental preparation for a performance situation (the presentation to the Board for the project that will change your career, the sales pitch for that one big deal, …). These steps include:  

  • Recognising your body and mind reactions to such situation  
  • Getting to understand what causes these reactions  
  • Turning destructive beliefs into smart beliefs  
  • Tipping the balance to your favour by working on confidence, control and focus on success  

The workshop ends with a wrap-up exercise that allows you to combine all learnings into a preparation plan for any future performance situation.  

A recap of the training content is available in the hand-outs, in which you can also go through the exercises.
