Winning Mindset

Stress is natural and good. But excessive amount of unmanaged stress for prolonged period of time, is counterproductive, having negative affect on our health, happiness, capacity to lead and decreasing ability to focus, think with clarity or make unbiased decisions. Job of executives is mentally challenging, simply by its nature. For leaders, stress management skills and building mental resilience is vital necessity. We address this complexity in our leadership development programmes.

” If a leader breaks under the pressure and gets stressed in situation that is out of his comfort zone he cant expect people under his responsibility to remain calm, rational or pragmatic. Stress is contagious, but so is calmness and steadiness. ”

Katarina Lincz

Get inspired by extreme athletes

Athletes, especially those in extreme sports, are praised for their abilities to perform even out of their comfort zone, for enduring stress and for an astonishing mental resilience. But those abilities are actually skills which you can learn.

Your tutor, Katarina Lincz, one of the deepest diving woman athletes in the world who managed to dive to 95m in the ocean on single breath of air and who holds several national records, will show you how to adopt the power mindset of top athletes and use specific techniques of mental training directly in your office.

“ Stress is about how we perceive a reality around us. There is a lot of triggers that can bring stress in us, our heart rate raises, breathing gets fast and shallow. Stress can trigger a lot of chronic diseases and it is vital to have a good knowledge on how to manage it. We tried different breathing exercises with Katarina, in the basic work with stress for example we used a slow breathing technique and in free diving no breathing. I reached relaxation and focus and managed to stay three minutes under water in a pool without breathing, something that I never imagined I could be capable of achieving. “
