Why do great performers consistently outperform their competition?



There are certainly great differences in natural abilities, access to training and education, connections and the luck of the draw between people in the general population. However, we are talking about those people who are already among the best, yet only a few will be known as elite.



The elite see challenges in new ways. They perfect their craft to the nth degree. They put in countless hours to eliminate performance gaps and realize that reaching the summit in one domain does not mean you can leap to another. And, they all use coaches as their Sherpas to get them there.



By looking to domains that have "terminal consequences" such as aviation, spaceflight, sports and the military, we can adopt the preparation and coaching models that already have been proven to work. This is the Art, Science and Grit of high performance that is the common thread of continuous improvement and accomplishment in any domain.



This podcast will include interviews, discussions and debates with the world's leading experts on how to continuously improve on the accomplishments of our competitors--as well as our own.
