Mental Fitness for Leaders: Building Healthy Teams & Organizations

April 3, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

$595 – $775

Mental Fitness for Leaders: Building Healthy Teams & Organizations

Wednesdays, April 3, 10, 17, 24, & May 1, 2019 / 8:00 am – 10:00 am


Maximum 30 registrants!


Mental Fitness rests on the philosophy that we can learn, practice and develop a set of skills that result in health as well as personal and professional success.  We can learn these skills now—before things go wrong.  This is similar to construction practices—it is so much more economical to build something strong and lasting than it is to repair or reconstruct something that is falling apart. In this seminar, these skills will be taught and applied to business and leadership.

“Bryce Lefever, thank you and your book is excellent. I had 2 people read it including one veteran and it was a life changer! I love to share about it sometime!”

–Rianne Schorel, former professional soccer player and sports injury expert

“After I retired from the NFL, I have run the gamut from trauma to triumph.  In the last 18 years, my efforts have focused extensively on promoting and educating mental health. I have spoken to hundreds if not thousands of groups—athletes, veterans, schools, prisons, businesses, and active duty military leaders.  I use Dr. Lefever’s material—his articles, his books, his ideas and his Mental Fitness system—and nothing else.  His system is comprehensive, easy to understand, and profound.  Audiences are transfixed and transformed.  What Dr. Lefever has to offer is indispensable for anyone who wants to succeed—professionally and personally.”

 –Eric Hipple, former Detroit Lion Quarterback and 2019 Finalist for “NFL Salute to Service Award.”
