In sports, as in business, the instinct to win is crucial. To lead a team to victory, you have to accept the challenges and work together under adverse conditions. Danièle Sauvageau knows a thing or two about this.

In 2002, she led the Canadian women’s hockey team to its first-ever medal; she was the first female commentator on the traditional Hockey Night in Canada; she worked for 24 years with the Montreal police department and the RCMP. In Vancouver, she’ll be taking part in her seventh Olympic Games.

Today, Danièle Sauvageau draws on her expertise, her studies in social work and management, and her extensive experience to advise high-performance coaches and senior executives. In her presentations, she also speaks passionately about what she has learned.
