A world-class approach to
high performance.

We help executives and athletes define and deliver their best performance.

Mental Performance Consulting Group (MPCG) offers services delivered by practitioners with advanced training and experience in both sports science and organizational behaviour.

We emphasize the idea that athletic performance and business performance are behaviourally identical. Decision-making, negotiation, and leadership under pressure are guided by both the brain and the body.

We refer to this behavioural component as mental performance and believe that it is under leveraged in business as compared to sport. Learning to excel in this area is an intellectually stimulating experience that includes assessment, self-awareness, coaching, and practice. It’s as important to success as technical and physical mastery in both sports and business.

What our clients say about us

Leading a team, one of the great benefits of mental performance coaching is knowing yourself better. And because my whole team has been through this, they know themselves better.

Alan Crain
Former Chief Legal & Governance Officer, Baker Hughes

With Colin's help, I found my own path to success. He helped me develop the optimum framework for my training environment with a goal oriented and scientifically based program. When it was time to perform at my best, I was able to execute by trusting my gut feelings.

Colin draws on his diverse life experiences to provide coaching and leadership development that is highly tailored and effective. His experience advising world class athletes provides him with an additional perspective that adds significant value for the client.

Henry Demone
Former Chairman of the Board, Highliner

Colin is incredibly innovative and resourceful, recruiting resources and practices that aren’t typically a part of an athlete’s training plan. And perhaps most importantly, he never shied away from holding me accountable to my goals, in the most supportive way.

Alexandra Duckworth
2014 Olympian - Canadian Snowboard Team

Leading my team to victory in the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race was the most testing experience of my life. 11 months, 65,000km, and the worst mother nature could throw at us. One advantage I had over the competition was that when I was being most challenged, I could call upon Colin Guthrie at MPCG. Those conversations would always leave me with an increased perspective and an actionable plan to move forward.
