    Greg Jackson is the founder and CEO of Octopus Energy Group, which currently has over 3.1 million UK customers. Octopus are on a mission to bring cheaper, greener power to all. In this episode Greg shares not only what it means to be a successful leader and team player, but how to live a more authentic life altogether. During this episode Greg shares a key life lesson: “Be more like your Gran”. Older people are always happier and fulfilled as they are confident in themselves whilst being able to admit their own flaws, he states this is something we should all aspire to be. 


    Greg shares how integral creating a world where we are all equal is and why we should seek to get rid of any power dynamics. He discusses with Jake and Damian how crucial respect, compromise and authenticity are within his personal and professional life.

    Kenton Cool is an English mountaineer, a performance coach and co-founder of In Cool Company. He has climbed Everest a record 16 times and, among many other accomplishments, he kicked off the 2012 Olympics’ when he fulfilled an 88-year old pledge to take a gold medal from the 1924 Olympic Games to the top of Everest. 


    In this episode Kenton, Jake and Damian discuss how Kenton deals with ‘the death zone’ whilst on an expedition and the uncontrollables that comes with it. He shares how he mentally switches off from the pressures of expeditions, the stress during the expedition can be so high that coming back down to normal life can be challenging. 


    Kenton opens up about how he has struggled connecting to his own feelings, and how important working on himself has been. He tells the story of how a young boy in Pakistan illustrated to him a different way of living, completely shifting his work view.

Podcast about Amazing People that Achieve High Performance

The high performance podcast is by far the best podcast I ever followed.
The diversity of amazing guests that Jake Humphrey and Damian Hughes interview goes from entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes from a variety of sports, authors, influencers…There is a lot of life lessons in each episode, you will learn from where you least expect.
Jake Humphrey and Damian Hughes are fantastic at going deeper with the guests that end up exposing the human being behind the great successes and inspire listener and reader to strive for their best.
They also have the bite size episodes that are short summaries of their interviews and their book on many of the lessons from the first episodes of the podcasts. If you start you will end up listening to all episodes like I did. I am a school teacher and a club soccer coach in US and I lead my students and athletes to learn from the lessons, not only to achieve high performance but to see how each guest dealt with their struggles and discrimination and their success through their growth mindset and resilience.

Best thing to happen to me all year

I have recently discovered the High performance podcast, I listen to an episode every morning and every evening on my commute. When I reach the last episode I will start from the beginning again because there is a golden nugget in each and every episode.

My commute is now my second favourite time of the day after greeting my kids at the door.

I have started to take 100% responsibility for everything that I do and that happens to me, I have found my real values and I make sure that every decision I make aligns with them, this has brought me fulfillment and happiness already after only a couple of weeks. It is invigorating and pushes me to fully engage in everything that I do.

This podcast is not only interesting and entertaining but it is inspirational and everyone can learn from every episode.

I will never waste another second of my life because if I am not busy doing something I will be listening to Jake and Damian.

Fabulous story, great messages

Just listened to the high performance podcast with Michelle Mone (who I'd never heard of before). Some great insights- with the key messages to life being, 1. You only get one life, live it 2. Expect frustration, upsets and challenges will be part of life but believe in yourself to overcome them. 3. Learn to love yourself, happiness is more important than money 4. Only care in what your friends and family think of you and seek positive people to be around. I hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday
