Elite sports. Inspiring to many of us. The continual search for faster, higher, longer and more accurate. Do we understand how exceptional performances are established? What’s driving the elite coach? What exactly is going round in his or her mind? Which guiding principles are leading the effort? Before, during and after. And what exactly sets the elite coach apart from thousands of other coaches?
High Performing Businesses. Inspiring to many of us. The continual search for faster, cheaper, safer and healthier. Do we understand how exceptional business success is established? What is driving leadership? What exactly is going round in the minds of leaders on various levels in the organisation? Which guiding principles are leading the path to success? Before, during and after. And what exactly sets the successful leader apart from thousands of other leaders?
Elite sports and business are driven by empirical science. Knowledge gained by experimenting. Usually developped in small, isolated environments of training groups or operational teams. And certainly not meant to share with others. Why educate the competition?
Athletes and teams don’t last for ever. On the contrary. Coaching and leadership careers may last longer. In the end however, even the very best coach will trade places with new talented successors. The real star performers are honoured with biographies. The majority of highly succesfull coaches and leaders silently move to the background. And in the end, will be forgotten.
It’s our mission to catch, capture and share the knowledge and experience of truly great leaders in sports and business. In an accessible, easy to grasp and inspiring way. By doing that, great leaders receive the credits they earn. So they may act as Giants, providing a shoulder to the younger generation to stand on, enabling them to look even further.
