Morneau Shepell and Performance Coaching Inc. form partnership to provide robust suite of training services for leaders

New partnership gives Morneau Shepell clients access to unique leadership learning and development experiences.

TORONTO, Nov. 26, 2013 /CNW/ - In its continuing effort to expand client access to learning tools and help them achieve high levels of performance and productivity, Morneau Shepell is partnering with Performance Coaching Inc., a leadership training company. The partnership will help clients establish high performance environments that factor in mental health by applying a suite of leadership and resilience skills grounded in Performance Coaching's work with elite performers across sport and business.

"We are very excited about this new partnership," said Michelle Steinowicz, Vice President Client Strategy with Morneau Shepell. "Our unique services complement each other and allow for excellent leadership development programs that can establish environments of healthy high performance within the workplace."

All organizations - large and small - benefit from strategic tools where employees and leaders can enhance their ability to reach full potential while at the same time maintaining an optimistic and productive attitude in stressful situations. Performance Coaching's Ignite and The Inside Edge workshops provide those necessary toolkits that allow leaders to better motivate and thrive under pressure.

More than 20,000 managers have taken Performance Coaching's leadership development programs. More than 99 per cent of those would recommend the course to others and 98.4 per cent are confident they will be able to apply what they learned. Performance Coaching has also helped prepare more than 70 Canadian medalists for competition and works closely with Hockey Canada and the Canadian Sport Institute Ontario to support Canadian athletes, coaches, and sport psychologists on the global stage.

"Our suite of tools enables employees to perform at high levels under pressure while staying healthy", said Dane Jensen, Chief Operating Officer with Performance Coaching Inc. "By developing personal resilience skills for leaders, we believe our work with Morneau Shepell can improve the quality of leadership and make healthy high performance the norm in the Canadian workplace."
