Olympic Coach to Stage Vancouver Seminar on "Becoming the Champion of Your Own Life"
Steffany Hanlen, the first-ever female contracted NHL skating coach and performance coach for the 2006 Canadian Olympic Figure Skating Ice Dance Team, is staging a unique weekend seminar called "The Champions' Journey" on November 14-15, 2009. The event, which Hanlen calls an "intimate look into what creates success at the highest levels", will take place at the Sheraton Airport Hotel in Vancouver, BC.
"For world-class athletes, the most stressful time is right before they compete--and that's the way it is with the rest of us, too," Hanlen said. "Think just before you start a new job, or get married, or have a baby. How you plan and prepare for these major life events (or not!) makes a huge impact on your ability find lasting happiness."
The event will reveal how top-tier athletes prepare themselves mentally to perform at their peak--and how active, successful people can "borrow" their techniques to achieve greatness in their own lives. In addition, Hanlen will touch on strategies for transitioning into a healthy routine after major life changes--which is something that "high achievers often struggle with," she noted.
"Real success is about much more than just preparation before the event: it's about having a life you can be proud of. Many athletes find they fall apart once they've achieved their goals. I support my clients in planning for 'now what?' My commitment is to help them find real balance and satisfaction in all areas of their life--not just in sport."
Hanlen said that athletes aren't the only ones with this problem, but high-achievers in every area tend to be afflicted with it. "Challenges, overcoming adversity, politics, life balance issues, financial fears--this isn't just an 'athlete' issue: it's a human issue," Hanlen said.
Public registration for "The Champions' Journey" seminar is now open. Interested persons are encouraged to visit Hanlen's website at www.steffanyhanlen.com
