UltraPerformance, the day everything changed…
March 28, 2015… in a few minutes my life will change and never be the same again. I’m standing at the top of a snow speed track, wearing ice crampons on a 45 degree slope, ready to set the start for a new world speed record. I am waiting for the verdict. The conditions are Dantesque, a few seconds will sum up three years of my life which, at this precise moment, bring Eric Barone to this absolute record of 223,30Km/h on a bike. The machine that I am loses control of its emotions and I realize, in tears, that I will never again be able to be satisfied with pure performance.
My life then shifted into a new dimension: that of UltraPerformance through Human Empowerment.
UltraPerformance, a way of life
So why not project ourselves into a new paradigm in which people would flourish in their activity while “performing”? A sustainable world where High Performance and Ecoresponsibility are reconciled. What about groups working in extreme environments? What hidden resources do we still have available to effectively meet the challenge?
My 7 key principles as a Project Leader combined with this philosophy of UltraPerformance are the fruit of my reflections and life experiences. They integrate all the keys and methods that I have gradually developed*.

The uncompromising equation of this “new” world
The effect of the 2020 pandemic has been further reinforced: tomorrow’s organizations will have to produce better, in an increasingly demanding environment, for the benefit of as many people as possible, using far fewer natural resources, and even having a positive balance. This complex equation requires our structures to review their fundamental operating principles.
