THE MAKING OF A LEADER
LESSONS FROM ELITE SPORT
We are fascinated with the makeup of leaders, from polar explorers and politicians to CEOs and sports coaches. What is it about these people that enables them not only to reach the pinnacle of their profession, but to create a culture of sustained success and bring others with them on that journey?
Performance psychologist Tom Young has worked closely with teams and individuals at the highest level of professional sport. He has seen how leaders in these high-pressure environments communicate, how they handle pressure, maintain focus and respond to challenges.
The Making of a Leader shares the practical principles of sustained elite performance and shows how any individual can add value to their own business or organisation by applying these insights.
You will learn how to develop a leadership philosophy that is true to your values, effectively manage and get results from individuals and teams, establish a high-performance culture and bring value to your organisation – in short, what makes a leader.
