Where has your passion for performance come from?

Playing and watching a variety of sports growing up, I have always been intrigued by individuals and teams that could consistently produce great performances. This interest has grown to other areas, especially business where individual and team performance can often be harder to measure yet just as impactful.

What gives organisations the winning edge?

I think there are a number of things that contribute to the ‘winning edge’, one of which is building close relationships amongst team members. This creates trust within the team and allows for a number of important outcomes, including creativity and healthy team conflict.

Background

I have recently had the privilege of working in partnership with Christian, coaching and facilitating a group of retailers over four days. Christian showed real expertise in his subject matter of Performance Psychology. His pragmatic approach of delivering this content and making it relevant to the learner and their business is as good as I have seen in my 18 years in retail and as an L&D professional.
