Uncover the secret to achieving sustainable performance

Too often we just default to external factors being prioritised in business: budget, business plans, investment, market dynamics, and so on. These matter – but they are not as important as the people behind them. 

If we want businesses that are agile and adaptable to change, we first need people who are. Flexible business models are meaningless if we don’t also have agile mindsets and behaviours. Your people are your business’s most important asset. If we want resilient businesses, we must build resilient teams, and to do this we need to empower them with the knowledge and tools to understand and leverage their most important asset – their minds. This book is the first step.

What is Mental Fitness?

An athlete needs more than just potential: they work every day to maintain the physical fitness that lets them make that potential real. On the playing field, it is not enough to know what to do: you have to put in the work to act sooner and better than the opponent.

The same goes for business – Mental Fitness is the measure of a person’s mental resilience, agility and focus. Like physical fitness, it is the result of training, care, and attention. For mental fitness, learning how to better understand and regulate our thoughts, emotions and reactions, will allow us to show up for ourselves and for one another in a more effective way.
