Lessons From Sport

Sport is an evocative platform that resonates with the Corporate world. While an Enterprise does not conduct business in a zero-sum environment that competitive sport so often operates in, an organization functions best when its stake-holders harness its ecosystem optimally. Management, Employees, Partners, Influencers and Investors all need to work harmoniously to ensure that their company solves problems effectively for its customers. Vision, Values, Culture and Strategy are aspects that contribute to long-term success; agility and the nimbleness to swiftly develop tactics allow a company to respond to today's fluid environment. The drama and passion in Sport might centre around action on the field, but success on and off it is driven by the same aspects and the same agility that a successful Corporate demonstrates.

The TENVIC Approach to Sportsperson Mentoring

The most important battle to win on the playing field is the one in the mind. Winning in sport, as someone once said, is 90% mental. Through our mentoring programs, we help sportspeople develop mental toughness and competencies for use during their playing years and beyond. These programs draw on the expertise of world class sporting icons and senior human resource professionals and use diagnostic aids, workshops and focused mentoring sessions to achieve results.
