NEW YORK, N.Y. Wednesday, April 10, 2013

The Mental Toughness Telesummit, a free online event to be held April 29 – May 3, brings together bestselling authors, behavioral psychologists, Navy SEAL combat veterans and start-up entrepreneurs to show how leaders can develop mental toughness and perform better under pressure. Participants can register at

The five-day telesummit will be hosted by performance strategist Renita Kalhorn, a Juilliard-trained concert pianist and martial arts black belt. Spurred by the belief that everyone – from high-profile CEOs and executives to start-up entrepreneurs and sports team captains – can develop mental toughness, she was inspired to bring together the visionaries and role models she most admires as cutting-edge thinkers on mental toughness and other aspects of this crucial leadership skill.

Headline speakers include Les McKeown, Inc columnist and author of Predictable Success, Whitney Johnson, author of Dare, Dream, Do: Remarkable Things Happen When You Dare to Dream, and Dr. Todd Kashdan, author of Curious? Discover The Missing Ingredient to a Fulfilling Life. The Summit roster also includes Dianne Collins, one of America’s leading new-world thinkers; Brent Gleeson, former Navy SEAL and combat veteran, and Amos Winbush III, founder of CyberSynchs. The unique summit will give live, free access to speakers sharing practical, actionable information on how to sustain perseverance and passion and lead others through failure, adversity and plateaus.

“Today’s global leaders face unprecedented levels of uncertainty and complexity and they need the same psychological readiness as an athlete does,” says Kalhorn. “More than knowledge, talent or skill, it’s the ability to handle relentless pressure and stress of competition, fatigue and adversity that will ensure success.”

Summit topics will cover the mindset and habits of mental toughness, including team-building, risk-taking, decision-making, quantum principles and staying bulletproof under pressure.
