In 2019, Marie-Josée Michaud was delighted to see her book 80 Heures par semaine, quand l’hyper performance devient toxique published. It received favourable attention from many media: La Presse, Le Journal de Montreal/Quebec, TV and radio networks. It is now available, in french only, both in Canada and Europe. 

The author reveals her own journey with hyper performance and how this perceived quality, if not kept in check, can turn into a nightmare! She uses a unique approach: digging in her own story as a single mom and leader, she justifies and clarifies the causality that led her to battle against a major depression while sharing tools and tips on how to avoid the adversity of performing at all cost.

Only available in french for now!

What people say?

I just finished reading your book. I LOVED it and it will become a bible for me. I am on sick leave since a year, I was known as being a very strong leader. There were signs that I neglected for years. Your book will help me with my return to work. I wanted to say thank you for making a real difference in my life!
A book to read if you work long hours to meet your personal standards of perfection. Includes exercises to identify your own solutions, without blame. For me, this reading felt right in with a work situation!
Congratulations for your book. After a leave of absence, reading it really helped me built my confidence in the face of my very imminent return to work. Thank you for being an inspiration for those women who, by the nature of their role in this world, are great influencers.

Good book, although sometimes I see hints of hyper performance😉 Good exercises in the appendix and I would love to have some training with her.
