I am Bruno Pecly, a Brazilian immigrant, a devoted husband, and the proud father of two beautiful girls. My journey has taken me from the colorful landscapes of Brazil to the bustling city of Atlanta in 2013, a journey that embodies my commitment to embracing new challenges, cultures, and opportunities.
From my experiences as a competitive Basketball and Poker player to my current role as a Certified Mental Performance Coach, my path has been marked by diversity, resilience, and adaptation - characteristics mirrored in the clients I work with.
The mental fortitude I've honed through intensive participation in both physical and strategic sports forms the foundation of my unique approach to mental performance coaching.

Why Mental Performance?
The importance of mental performance, a critical yet often overlooked aspect, extends beyond the individual and pervades every aspect of team performance, whether in sports or in business. This mental tenacity, a blend of resilience, confidence, and focus, can make or break an athlete's performance under pressure, influence their commitment during training, and determine their concentration during competitions.
Similarly, the strength of mental performance is critical in a business setting. It shapes the ability of a leadership team to make sound decisions, maintain focus under pressure, lead with empathetic confidence, and foster a collaborative environment steeped in positivity.
Supporting this, a 2009 study by Gucciardi, Gordon, and Dimmock underscored the critical role mental toughness plays in an athlete's journey to success, particularly in their ability to persist through rigorous training and maintain focus during high-stakes competitions.
Business is no exception to this rule. Executive coaching, a significant component of mental performance training, was found to result in a remarkable 32% increase in goal attainment, according to a 2011 study published in the International Journal of Evidence-Based Coaching and Mentoring. Improvements in work-life balance, job satisfaction, and resilience were reported as well.
Harvard Business Review's 2004 research further highlights the transformative effect of coaching in a corporate environment. The study revealed that an impressive 84% of 140 surveyed executives reported improved work performance post-coaching. Improved relationships with direct reports (77%), immediate supervisors (71%), and peers (63%) were also reported. The cumulative result? A considerable 51% of these executives reported enhanced team effectiveness.
Therefore, the proof is in the performance. Whether on the athletic field or in the corporate boardroom, mental performance is not just significant—it's pivotal. Availing themselves of the guidance and mentorship of a dedicated mental performance coach like Bruno Pecly offers athletes and business professionals the keys to unlocking their potential. It provides them with the tools, strategies, and mindset required to excel, setting them on a trajectory of success in their chosen field.
