Getting started

If you’re serious about being the best performer you can be at work, whatever the conditions then the athlete at work® programme is for you.

The programme is 12 weeks long and each week you’ll spend 30-45 minutes working through the performance principle of the week. Managing performance training will be simple, as in the week that follows you’ll take that knowledge and apply it to the reality of your day-to-day work and life.

You’ll be paying close attention to some of your attitudes and actions throughout the programme, and this will form a really important part of your learning. So be ready to get familiar with a daily ritual of intention setting and reflecting (which will take just a short time each day).

The first couple of weeks will establish robust foundations, the middle part of the programme will help you make some upgrades in your approach to performance and in the final few weeks we’ll shift our focus onto motivation, to sustain your performance and improvement once the 12 weeks are over.

The goal behind Athlete at Work® is to provide you with long lasting tools and techniques. By managing your performance training now, you will make a positive impact which will be felt for the rest your career.
