Athlete365 Career+ workshop held at Dubai 2022 Junior & Cadet Fencing World Championships

Prior to the start of the 2022 Junior and Cadet Fencing World Championships in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, an IOC Athlete365 Career+ ‘’Power-Up’’ workshop was held for fencers taking part in an official FIE training camp. The workshop was led by three-time Olympian and FIE digital communication manager Maria Ntanou, with 16 fencers participating from 16 countries.

The half-day workshop covered several modules, such as how to identify your strengths and values.

The workshop teaches that no matter what stage your career is in, it is important to take time to reflect and evaluate who you are and what you want out of life. Finding what your superpowers are and what truly motivates and drives you will help in all aspects of your career and life.

This first session focused on self-reflection and activities among athletes’ groups to answer questions like: “What is great about me?”, “What could I be better at?” and “What is important to me?”

At the end of the session fencers were able to distinguish three of their top personality trait strengths and three areas they could develop further.
