WHY ARE BROKERS, TRADERS AND BUSINESS PROFESSIONALS NOT SUPPORTED LIKE ATHLETES?
Andy founded Seneca Performance in 2019 after feeling frustrated that brokers, traders and other top business professionals were not receiving the same level of support as many of the professional athletes he coached.
If we contrast the premiership footballers Andy currently coaches with most business professionals, footballers have a plethora of support from sports scientists, psychologists, nutritionists, conditioning coaches, coaches, managers and masseurs.
Because sport, which is always ahead of business in terms of performance, knows that elite athletes perform better when mentally and physically stronger.
Why does sport care so much?
Because happy, healthy athletes perform better, which means improved results and more revenue.
NOW CONTRAST THIS WITH BROKERS, TRADERS, LAW PROFESSIONALS, ENTREPENEURS...
Many of these business professionals, just like athletes are capable of performance that can generate significant revenue, And they, on the whole, have ZERO support. Nothing... Business, therefore, is missing a vital element of performance. Better mental and physical health = better performance. The science of positive psychology has transformed the way we look at success. For years we’ve had the happiness formula the wrong way round that - believing that success leads to happiness. Now we know unequivocally through science that improved mental and physical well-being leads to more success in business and life. Therefore imagine the health and performance wins organisations would gain if they started to leverage the power of optimal mental health.
HOW TO ACHIEVE THIS?
The Seneca team have created various products and resources to help optimise mental health, wellbeing and performance including workshops, talks and coaching designed to help the organisation become more resilient, healthier & happier. The most popular is Andy’s world-class 6 weeks Executive Athlete programme.
Positive Psychology has clearly demonstrated the power of improved health and performance. Therefore, what could it be worth to your organisation in terms of retention, longevity, health, fewer sick days, less presenteeism, and overall improved performance and revenue generation if your teams were mentally healthier and stronger?
