Richard Monette  

human and organizational performance.

As a man who has been shaped by his own quest, Richard Monette leads a life dedicated to his passion: improving human and organizational performance. He has acquired extensive academic credentials and practical expertise in business, athletics, and education in a career spanning over 20 years. Richard grew up in a world where sport was life and competition was joy. Then, in a 1993 ski accident, this world vanished and Richard was left barely able to walk. At first, Richard scoffed at a friend’s suggestion to take up golf. But rising to the challenge, he changed his mind and quickly learned that while golf lacked in physical intensity, its particular demands could humble even the finest athlete. Richard has pursued excellence in golf ever since, both as a master and student of the game. He has realized, through this pursuit, that the factors that make us successful on the golf course and those we need to be successful in our personal and professional lives are one and the same. Using this unique metaphor, Richard uses his “Beyond Golf” programs to deliver innovative thinking and customized solutions to organizations and individuals who are committed to transforming their approach and achieving maximum performance. Richard believes the key to success lies in making a true commitment to transformation; to accept that formidable challenges lay ahead in improving personal performance. His ‘Beyond Golf’ presentation is a fantastic way to add value to your next corporate golf outing. The fundamental concepts that shape Richard’s approach include: Performance transcends our lives Performance cannot be isolated and contained within separate pockets of our lives. The human drive to improve lives at the core of our personal potential, regardless of how we apply it. Richard’s approach integrates personal values, perspectives, strategies, and behaviours. He works with his clients to identify these and evaluate the steps needed to achieve higher levels of personal performance. Creativity has a pragmatic side Darwin was right. It is not strength or intelligence which ensure survival, but rather adaptability. Richard has observed that adapting to change involves creative thinking, but within the parameters of change. Based on this, he works to improve his clients’ performance using his principle of Pragmatic Creativity, which allows clients to learn how challenging limitations and boundaries can – and do – initiate creativity. He explores techniques and behaviours which teach clients to apply new knowledge to a changing situation, quickly and with measurable results. Step into the arena and play the game Richard, an athlete himself, realizes that when we play a game or sport, we are focused, determined, creative, strategic … all the elements that shape performance. As we step into the arena of our game, we are prepared to reveal our strengths and weaknesses; we acknowledge these and still strive to win. And whether we win or not, we gain a great deal from the experience. Richard helps his clients learn how to apply these elements of performance, innate in our inherent desire to play, to the arenas of business and personal life.
