We all want to discover our hidden talents and make an impact with them. But how? Our guest, an ex-footballer and performance specialist, quit his job and for six intense months lived with the world’s best athletes in an attempt to answer this question.
Why have the best middle distance runners grown up in the same Ethiopian village?
Why are the leading female golfers from South Korea?
How did one athletic club in Kingston, Jamaica, succeed in producing so many world-class sprinters?
Our guest presents his surprising conclusions in seven lessons on how anyone – or any business, organisation or team – can defy the many misconceptions of high performance and learn to build their own gold mine of real talent.
This book is not about sport, it’s about identifying and nurturing talent. In a knowledge economy, talent is a competitive advantage, but bus8ness leaders and coaches alike don’t often know how to identify talent, even when it’s right in front of them.
