Where has your passion for performance come from?
Sport has been a continual presence throughout my life and sparked my fascination with the factors that affect individual and team performance. I started sports coaching at a young age, and quickly recognised the role of the coach in facilitating personal development, shifting mind sets and achieving personal bests. These experiences led me to study Psychology at Plymouth University, where I published research into the role of ‘focus of attention’ on motor performance.
What gives organisations the winning edge?
Rapidly evolving markets, technology and competition has meant that change has become commonplace in peoples working lives. Sustainable high performance is therefore reliant on a culture of open-mindedness, willingness to challenge orthodoxies and a readiness to absorb new ways of working. Organisations that strike the right balance between past experience to inform decision making, and learning as a tool to anticipate and innovate, will ride the wave of change and have the winning edge.
