“Elite sports people are always seeking the winning edge. That elusive differentiator between them and their competition. In doing so, they and their support team of nutritionists, psychologists and coaches, leave no stone unturned in their pursuit of excellence.
In this fascinating journey through the minds of athletes and Olympians, tennis players and golfers, you will discover insights that will transform your thinking and enable you to perform at your very best.
Combining anecdotes of glory and disappointment from sporting arenas around the world with behavioural models and scientific concepts such as Flow, Inner Game and Marginal Gains, this book is entertaining, informative and eminently practical.
Performances, together with mental insights, of household names such as Andy Murray, Rory McIlroy and Bradley Wiggins, are scrutinised through the lenses of great thinkers in the field, from Martin Seligman to Tim Gallwey, from Dan Siegel to Dan Pink.
Laced with ponder questions and worksheets, each chapter is able to be used as part of team-building, leadership development and coaching programmes, either for the individual reader, or for teams of people.
Don’t leave all the secrets to performing at optimal levels to professional sports people. Today’s business world is every bit as competitive, and you too can benefit from adopting a Sporting Mindset for Business Performance.”
