Summary

Journalist Charlene White gains unprecedented access to some of Britain’s oldest and most famous companies and institutions to find out what makes them successful. In each episode we will meet the people behind this success; senior management and staff, past and present, this series gets under the skin of these world famous organisations.

We learn how they have each employed distinct cultures, systems and techniques in order to stand the test of time. We also hear about the companies’ biggest failures throughout their history and what they learnt.

With the help of Paul Anderson-Walsh, Director of The Centre for Inclusive Leadership; and research by Professor Alex Hill, Kingston University & Director of the Centre for High Performance; each episode identifies how these business lessons can be applied directly to your own life; how to improve your productivity, stay motivated and get ahead.

Vital lessons for all who care about performance

Valuable lessons - beautifully stitched together. A wonderful mix of contributions and perspectives from those involved in performance improvement from a range of fields.

As a coach myself I gleaned countless valuable insights related to helping people improve their game in all fields of life.

Great series with heartening motives

This series takes you from dominating in rowing to tackling cancer. With compelling accounts on how to succeed as a team, handling life changing challenges and pushing yourself. If you are looking for a short and sweet series, to provide some much needed inspiration, look no further.

Engaging and enlightening

Wasn't' sure what to expect as I thought the subjects could end up being rather dry.However pleasantly surprised how interesting each individual chapter was .Narrator was easy to listen to which was an added bonus.
