This is a nice chat on MT in business. Applied Sport Psychology in business leadership. One great point he says is that while there are some differences between sports and business, there are many more simularities which is why there is so much to be gained in the business environement by at least looking at methds of elite performers in sports.

Maria Legaspi's insight:

It takes more than muscles and physical skills to be successful in sports. Strenght, endurance and agility can take you far but imagine how much further you can go if you can will yourself to go beyond what the physical aspect can provide.These mental skills don't only make you a great athlete, but also a better person.
