SIMON SINEK ON TRAINING YOUR MIND TO PERFORM UNDER PRESSURE

In Chapter 14 of 23 in his 2013 Capture Your Flag interview, author and public speaker SIMON SINEK answers "What Does It Mean to Perform Under Pressure in the Work That You Do?"

This positive interpretation of pressure helps Sinek embrace the moment as a public speaker and be at his best on stage. Simon Sinek teaches leaders and organizations how to inspire people. Sinek is the author of two books, "LEADERS EAT LAST: WHY SOME TEAMS COME TOGETHER AND OTHERS DON'T" and "START WITH WHY: HOW GREAT LEADERS INSPIRE EVERYONE TO TAKE ACTION".
