Publisher's Summary

Today's corporate world is much like the world of professional sports - fiercely competitive, mentally and physically demanding, and requiring constant, vigilant, training. More than ever, to maintain health, happiness, and career success, executives and employees must become Corporate Athletes. Based on the latest scientific and medical studies, this program tells corporate competitors how to achieve maximum performance levels. Drawing on the parallels between sports and business, Jack Groppel reveals the integral roles that nutrition, fitness, and self-improvement - mental, physical, and emotional - play in giving corporate athletes their winning edge. You'll learn how to: have as much energy for your family at 8 p.m. as you have at the office at 8 a.m.; respond to change, adversity, and crisis more constructively; and slow down the aging process. Whether or not you can hit a home run or run a marathon, this program will train you to perform at the highest possible levels in both your professional and family life.

Good tools to start improving performance.

My husband and I really enjoyed listening to this together. It was short and packed with ideas for improving performance. We look forward to implementing them right away in the new year.
