Forming Productive Habits That Work With Steve Marriott
Forming Productive Habits is a key skill to develop if you want to up your game and get more done. There’s a lot of folklore and old wives tales about what you need to do and how long it takes to form any habit.
However a growing body of behavioural and neuroscience research has helped us understand what happens when we form a habit. This research is also showing us how we can take control of that process by choice.
In this episode, neuro-enthusiast Steve Marriott dissects the anatomy of a habit and how it is formed in our brain. His insights will help you when forming productive habits.

I was really excited about having Steve on the show for two reasons.
The first was because of his depth of knowledge of neuroscience and the amount of preparation I know he did for the interview, even though I told him not to.
But secondly because I have personally worked with and alongside him for the last 10 and have seen first hand how brilliant his insights are.
So it was a real joy and a privilege to have such a great friend and valued colleague on the show.

Success Mindset For Consistent Peak Performance With Gavin Ingham
Having a Success Mindset is a key factor in whether or not you’ll become a peak performer. There are three factors that contribute to the consistency of any success you have. In this episode I discuss those three factors together with a powerful peak performance ideology with super sales expert and motivation coach Gavin Ingham.
Gavin Ingham, an expert in the success mindset, got into sales after a short career in the Metropolitan Police Force. He made his first sale in the first week, but it then took him another 26 weeks before he made his next sale.
On the brink of leaving the profession he was given a book that gave him a secret to success and inspired him to up his game.
In quick succession he then became his teams top sales performer, the regional top performer and then European top performer and award winner.
His sales career accelerated, rapidly becoming a team leader, sales manager and then the sales and marketing director of a FTSE 250 company.
On the back of that success he then turned his hand to helping others achieve peak performance.
Described by the brilliant Brian Tracy as one of the top motivational coaches in the UK, he has personally worked with over 250,000 people delivering over 2000 paid presentations around the world.
His #IAM10 methodology has helped thousands of professionals become peak performers and today he shares his insights through the #IAM10 show and the Directors Compass - an initiative to support leaders of businesses make smart decisions, employ winning strategies and get better results.
All this from a man who was told as a teenager he was best suited to being a fork lift truck driver.
Today when he is not helping business leaders or inspiring others to peak performance you’ll find him either with his kids, halfway up a tree or eating ice cream.
In our conversation we explore the importance of having a success mindset.
