Almost all of the business corporations I’ve worked with are challenged to find the balance between getting results and the well-being of their human capital or staff. They are so focused on external results that their leadership has not learned the science of performance from a health perspective.
I was working with a golfer in Sweden on his mental game. He had a habit of being very critical of himself while playing. If he played a “bad shot,” he would really punish and berate himself. So we discussed the results of that and if it was helping him play better golf—and he agreed that it wasn’t.
