Tune in to hear why passion is so important to being a high performer; learn how it relates to motivation, productivity and communication with others.

Performance is not just for Olympic athletes, NBA stars and Oscar nominees. It's a phenomena we all engage in every single day to some capacity or another, whether it is a parent demonstrating a skill to a child, an employee giving a critical presentation to key stakeholders, an amateur golfer out for a round or a musician playing in a café. There are underlying commonalities related to producing great results in all areas of our lives which are linked to how we think, how we feel and how we interact with our environment.
This show will provide insight, inspiration and guidance to help move you to take conscious action in creating new behaviors and outcomes in your life. Along with guest experts, Dr. Kristy offers a unique perspective, bringing knowledge from the field of sport, business and psychology together and applies them to our performances in everyday life.
