    EP235: RAPID Performance Lessons from F1 Racing with Paul Teasdale

    In the heart of London, amidst the rhythm of passing trains, The Jens Heitland Show unveils an episode that encapsulates the essence of high performance within teams and organizations. Episode 235, titled "RAPID Performance Lessons from F1 Racing with Paul Teasdale," is not just a dialogue; it's an exploration into the dynamics of transforming the theoretical into the tangible, the spoken into the actioned.

    Paul Teasdale, with his profound experience from the fast-paced world of Formula 1 racing, brings to light the RAPID framework—a beacon for organizations aiming to clinch that pole position in their respective fields. The conversation kicks off with an emphasis on understanding what high performance truly means at an individual, team, and organizational level. It's about setting a benchmark, aspiring to lead, and perhaps, redefine what it means to excel in your space.

    The journey from articulating these goals to actualizing them is where the essence of the RAPID framework shines. Breaking down the acronym, Teasdale delves deep into:


    Results: Pinpointing the finish line for your marathon.


    Actions: Mapping the racecourse with strategic pit stops.


    People: Assembling your pit crew, each member crucial to the lap's success.


    Insights: Equipping your crew with the best intel for split-second decisions.


    Data: Distilling the essence of countless data points into actionable wisdom.

    EP 234: Empowering Runners in Africa - The Braveheart Story

    EP 234: Empowering Runners in Africa - The Braveheart Story

    In episode 234 of the Jens Heitland Show, titled "Empowering Runners in Africa - The Braveheart Story," we're introduced to an inspiring narrative featuring Alistair Davidson, the founder of Braveheart Coaching. This episode is not merely a chronicle of Alistair's personal journey into running but unfolds as a significant mission aimed at empowering and transforming lives in the African running community. Alistair's extensive background, as former CFO roles at the IKEA Group and Tetra Pak, provides a unique lens through which he views and approaches the world of athletics and philanthropy.

    A Late Start with Lasting Impact

    Alistair's venture into the world of running was sparked at the age of 50, driven by a dual motive: to challenge himself and to support a cause deeply meaningful to him. He embarked on this journey by participating in the London Marathon, a decision motivated by a personal connection to children battling leukemia. Despite facing physical challenges post-marathon, this experience marked the beginning of Alistair's enduring commitment to running, not just for health but as a medium for change.

    Beyond Personal Achievement

    The narrative takes a compelling turn as Alistair explores the vibrant running community in Iten, Kenya, known as the "Home of Champions." This eye-opening experience in Iten, coupled with the stark realities faced by local athletes during the COVID-19 pandemic, ignited Alistair’s resolve to leverage running as a tool for broader societal empowerment.

    The Genesis of Braveheart Coaching

    Motivated by the struggles and potential of Kenyan runners, Alistair established Braveheart Coaching. This initiative transcends the conventional boundaries of athletic coaching, focusing on comprehensive support and finances for runners. Through projects like Braveheart Runners, Akili Heart, and Nezima Heart, Braveheart Coaching is dedicated to nurturing talent and providing a foundation for sustainable success and community upliftment.

    EP 232: Walk the Talk London - Innovating with Visual Storytelling - A Chat with Natalia Talkowska

    This episode, featuring the incredibly talented Natalia Talkowska, delves into the innovative realms of visual storytelling and strategic impact in businesses. Natalia, the founder of Nautauka Design, shares her journey of transforming a unique skillset into a thriving business venture.

    From Idea to Innovation

    Natalia's story is a testament to innovation and creativity. Her biggest innovative leap was starting a business that no one thought could be a business – combining her skills in listening, drawing, and instant clarity. Nautauka Design, now 13 years strong, focuses on creating transformative experiences for clients by visualizing their ideas, values, marketing strategies, and more.

    The Essence of Visual Storytelling

    Natalia's approach is about more than just drawing; it's about visualizing stories that have strategic impacts on organizations. She delves into how she began this journey, starting with no formal education in illustration or business but driven by sheer curiosity and a passion for drawing and human stories.

    Impactful Mentorship

    A pivotal moment in Natalia's path was meeting a mentor who recognized her talent and guided her. This mentorship not only kicked off her career but also instilled a belief in her abilities and the importance of visual storytelling in driving change.

    Bringing Strategies to Life

    Natalia highlights the power of visualization in bringing strategies to life. She speaks about the importance of alignment and clarity in team settings, especially in large-scale projects like revamping London Bridge Station. Her work showcases how visual experiences can accelerate project delivery and create a shared vision.

    Daily Innovation and Strategy Visualization

    For those looking to innovate daily, Natalia advises starting with simple sketches and doodles to visualize ideas and strategies. This approach helps in making abstract concepts tangible and understandable, especially in complex business environments.

    The Human Element in Innovation

    Natalia emphasizes the human aspect of innovation – the power of connection, storytelling, and making others feel seen. Whether it's through large-scale projects or simple acts of kindness, her mission is to ensure that everyone feels their voice and story matter.
