How to live your dreams and achieve your goals.

All my life I have been leading expeditions and practicing extreme sports, but for the last several years I have focused on coaching both athletes and executive teams. My search has been to reach-out and pass on what i like to call " the right stuff " , the right mental attitude. I believe that everyone possesses an inner energy that will enable them to overcome their fears, live their dreams and achieve their goals.

Due to my unique background and experience, I have developed particular skills and have engaged myself to teach, motivate and inspire others. Everything I've done in my career has sprung from my desire to empower people and make a difference. Today i am coaching individuals with varied talents and abilities to reach their highest potential and so to gain understanding about themselves, others.

The topics i teach are among others:
#1 'The right stuff' - The right mental Attitude
#2 True Engagement - How bad do I want it?
#3 Learn how to effectively Focus.
#4 Resilience. - Never give up until you have achieved your maximal potential.
#5 Leadership - Lead by example
#6 Emotional control - how to control ones fears
