The Not So Secret Requirements to Becoming a Top Performer
September 18, 2017
Hosted by Bernard E. Robinson
In leadership and in life, performers, of all stripes and in all fields, are seeking ways to enhance their performance. The truth is there are secrets, that are not so secret at all on how to enhance your performance. Techniques and behaviors needed to boost your performance are known and are captured in a book I read recently, by Dr. K. Anders Ericsson, entitled Peak: Secrets From The New Science of Expertise. Dr. Ericsson expands the level of knowledge about performance improvement. His book provides a research based look at strategies for boosting one's expertise. You will want to learn concepts like Mental Representation, Purposeful and Deliberate Practice and others that can help you boost your performance and effectiveness as a leader. Join your host, Bernard E. Robinson, and Dr. Ericsson for a great discussion. I am excited to have you join us to understand the science of expertise and consider the question are leaders born or made? You won't want to miss this show.
