Author of the book: Success Factor - Developing the Mindset and Skillset for Peak Business Performance
What do astronauts, Olympic champions, and Nobel laureates do differently that allows them to achieve at such a high level?
High achievers share the same four attributes: intrinsic motivation, perseverance, strong foundation, constantly learning through informal means. The key to their success is that they do all four of these things at the same time. Based on research and in-person interviews with astronauts, Nobel Prize winners, and Olympic champions, The Success Factor outlines the approach that individuals aspiring to improve their performance can adopt.
Using these four shared attributes as a guide, The Success Factor helps you reach your peak by applying the lessons of high achievers in your own life: identify your passion using a Passion Audit; learn how and where to find a mentor and how to build a mentoring team; develop your own community of practice; pursue your interests through informal learning; manage your time and energy. The Success Factor comes with online resources that feature a downloadable Passion Audit worksheet, Mentoring Team worksheet, and Goal Audit worksheet. The book offers scripts for approaching potential mentors and a list of uncommon places to find a mentor, such as webinars, airports, and social media.

Ep. 314 Gerdi Verwoert - Life as a Mountaineer Guide in Austria
Born and raised in the Netherlands I moved to Austria to live and work among mountains after a 20+ year career in project & facility management.
I left that career behind to work as a mountain hiking guide in the Austrian Alps.
Finding that a lot of the conversations I had with people I guided were coaching conversations, I trained as a life coach. I felt it was necessary to have a solid background in coaching.
During the pandemic, I started a podcast "Daring Self-Leadership & The Nature Connection".
I believe that to be leaders we first need to be able to lead ourselves. Since we are part of and not separate from Nature, I believe that requires us to re-connect with ourselves by re-connecting with Nature.
