Summary

With its winning mix of gripping narrative and easy-to-implement performance-raising tips, this book has become a best-selling classic. It’s garnered five-star reviews and wide-ranging endorsements - from Sebastian Coe and Dame Kelly Holmes to Lord Digby Jones. 

The book tells the inspiring story of how Ben Hunt-Davis - an ordinary guy on an ordinary team - achieved something pretty extraordinary: Olympic gold. Coauthor Harriet Beveridge, executive coach, then gives a simple, engaging account of how we can apply these strategies to raise our own game...in sport, in business, and in life.

Building on the huge success of the original, this second edition includes two completely new chapters - on high-performance conversations and performance under pressure - as well as a general update based on the successes people and businesses have reaped from the first edition. 

In the book’s signature down-to-earth and practical style, the new chapters unlock simple ways for listeners to thrive in their own pressured environments and to communicate in ways which consistently improve results.

Whether you are a business leader looking to achieve a compelling vision, an individual with a dream, or a coach supporting others to unlock their potential, this book is jam-packed with tried and tested methods to help you achieve your own "gold medal".
