About the Event

If there is one quality that lawyers and business professionals seek for themselves and their employees, it is sustained high performance in the face of ever-increasing pressure in this rapidly-changing world. This program will teach professionals about their capacity to build, grow and rebuild from adversity. The program features as a case study the Hot Docs documentary film Willie which tells the story of Willie O’Ree who, in the midst of America’s tumultuous birth of the civil rights movement, became the first black player to skate in a National Hockey League game. The case study will be followed by a panel which will discuss “the making of a corporate athlete”— or how professionals can reframe themselves as corporate athletes to increase their resilience and mental focus on leadership and wellness-work-life balance principles that high-performer athletes need to embrace to become extraordinary.
