E137 - Nick Cox: Why the future IS bright at Manchester United
1:04:40

Nick Cox is the Head of Academy at Manchester United. He has previously been an Academy Manager at Sheffield United FC. In this episode, Nick shares with us the key to high performance - people and relationships. For Nick, high performance is about finding those small windows of alignment where you are in flow, and then when you are not in that state your time should be spent rebuilding to return to it. 


As Head of Academy, Nick offers insight into how to best lead and mentor children and young adults into becoming whole, well-rounded people. One key aspect that Jake, Damian and Nick discuss is how failure is crucial for children, and why their mentors or parents need to explain to them why ‘sitting on the bench’ is a positive thing. 


Nick discusses the importance of challenging your outlook, tackling discomfort and doing what excites you.

38:00

In December 2020, we had an amazing conversation with the current captain of England and Manchester City at the time - Steph Houghton. Unfortunately due to injury, Steph didn’t make the current Euros squad but she is known as one of the most recognisable faces in women’s football.


With the Women’s Euros in full swing, we are releasing this fantastic episode to highlight just how far the women’s game has come on, but what it has taken footballer’s like Steph to get to this point. 


In this episode Steph takes us through how she began playing football at a time when being a professional women footballer didn’t exist. She shares with us the objections and stereotypes she had to overcome as she worked her way up. Steph has seen the evolution of football first hand and the impact it has had on players and fans alike. 


This is a candid conversation about Steph’s experiences as a woman in sport and the importance of setting examples for the next generation and leaving them a legacy to follow. Steph shares with us her thoughts on being in the moment, striving for the perfect game and winning cultures in football.

E129 - AJ Tracey: How my revenge list took me to the very top
1:38:55

AJ Tracey (Ché Wolton Grant) is a British singer-songwriter, producer, platinum selling and Brit nominated artist. AJ is known for his campaigns for justice, especially his ongoing support of Grenfell United. He was cited as one of the main reasons young people in his area of West London began voting. In this episode he shares the priceless opportunity his mum gave him by supporting him for a year to pursue music and how important that parental belief was. AJ discusses how confidence needs to come from within, his self-belief is what drives him - not outside sources.


Self-understanding and reflection is a crucial part of AJ’s career, rather than jumping at every opportunity he says he needs to “understand his own level” and not choose quick success over personal growth. He shares how important it is for him to return to Ladbroke Grove, where he grew up, and tackle poverty and inequality.

BITESIZE #72 | Jo Konta: Pain x resistance = suffering
11:56

This week’s special bitesize clip features the engaging and illuminating Jo Konta, former British No.1 women’s tennis player who won four singles titles, reached the semifinals of Wimbledon and rose to a world ranking of number 4. 


In this powerful clip we spoke about the loneliness of pursuing a path of excellence. The harsh, unforgiving spotlight of constant scrutiny and the struggle to maintain equilibrium and balance whilst engaged in the struggle to perform.

 

Jo shared with us a simple equation which helped re-ignite her passion and led to a significant step change in her performance…Pain x Resistance = Struggle

 

The more resistance to a challenge, the greater the struggle. Jo learned that when she began reducing her resistance and started seeing the benefits - what it was teaching her - the struggle dissolved.

25:52

On the day (Wednesday 1st June) of the emotional World Cup play-off game between Scotland vs Ukraine, we revisit an edited version of our conversion with Scotland manager Steve Clarke. The game was postponed in March after Russia's invasion of Ukraine, so this is the first competitive match Ukraine have been able to play since the declaration of war.


Steve's greatest achievement has been reversing the years of underperformance of the national football team, taking them to their first major tournament in over 20 years, and determined for them not to be one tournament wonders. Steve is searing in his honesty and inspiring with his humility. Listen to Steve explain how he's preparing his team for one of the most important games in their history.

E122 - Russell Kane: Lessons and learnings about authenticity
1:02:50

Russell Kane is a writer, comedian and actor, he’s best known for his stand-up specials and his appearances on panel shows. Russell shared that he believes “everyone… has an amazing skill and talent, however not everyone has the ability or luck to find it". He takes us through his challenging journey of finding success, from living in a mother and baby shelter to his life now. 


He discusses his relationship with his father and what effect it has had on the way he parents his children. His house is a space for his children to be free and happily express themselves, rather than how Russell was not encouraged to do what he wanted. Russell speaks about how his dad always expected something to be bad, rather than allowing himself to experience happiness. 


Russell shares his winning formula for success: hard work + sacrifice x joy.

Former FBI hostage negotiator and author Chris Voss joined us for E67 educating us on how to be a world class communicator. 


One of the most profound pearls of wisdom of the enlightening chat was also the simplest: just listen. 


We talk at around 150 words a minute yet are capable of listening to around 600 words in the same period. Our brains are often thinking ahead, planning our response. Slowing down our thinking and really engaging with the other person is saying is both a compliment and adds to our own competitive advantage.

Nims Purja: Make your dreams a reality (re-release)
57:15

Today we are returning to a very special episode from the beginning of 2021, when we were lucky enough to chat to mountaineer Nims Purja. Since then, Nims’ incredible documentary: 14 Peaks: Nothing Is Impossible has been released on Netflix, following Nims as he takes on the quest to summit all 14 of the world's 8,000-meter peaks in just seven months. To celebrate Nims’ success, we wanted to re-release this episode, sharing with you all of the insights, moments of inspiration and wisdom he imparted during our conversation. 


Nims had a dream to become a Ghurka like his fathers and brothers before him. He made that dream a reality when he was 18. Six years later he became the first-ever Gurkha to join the UK Special Boat Service, regarded as the most elite unit in the military. 


Nims set himself a challenge to be the fastest person to climb the world's 14 highest peaks over 8,000m. The previous record for this achievement was 8 years. Nims Purja did it in 6 months. A team of 10 Sherpas led by Nims has just smashed one of the last great remaining prizes in mountaineering – the ascent of K2 during the winter season.


Enjoy this extended re-release of Nim's episode - Dream big and always believe that anything's possible!

BITESIZE #47 | Adam Peaty: Have a balance in life to perform at your best
2:58

Back in Series 5 we were extremely fortunate to spend an afternoon with the incredible Adam Peaty.


Adam wrote his name into the history books once again as he powered to 100m breaststroke gold in Tokyo to become the first British swimmer to defend an Olympic title.


In the full episode we spoke about his intense focus on mental skills to allow his physical gifts to flourish. His use of visualising the waiting room before entering the arena, his refusal to engage in blame and his approach to developing bulletproof self-belief are all techniques we can apply in our world.


In this featured clip Adam speaks about the importance of balance in your life to be able to perform at your best.

BITESIZE #33 | Kevin Sinfield: Finding your path just takes getting started
7:11

This week’s bitesize brilliance is from rugby league legend Kevin Sinfield.

 

We chatted about the importance of soft stuff: the ability to show our emotions, let people know we care and the power of friendship. This is the intangible stuff that produces the hard currency of silverware.

 

"When it is all over, you don't remember games as well as the friendships and relationships you share."


In 2020 Kevin set the challenge to run 7 marathons in 7 days hoping to raise £77,777 in honour of his best Rob Burrow, who wore the No 7 shirt. He raised more than £2.5 million to help his friend’s family and the fight against MND.

BITESIZE #31 | Cath Bishop: Winning when it’s impossible
6:15

This week we have an extract from our exclusive members club The High Performance Circle, with former Olympian and business coach, Cath Bishop. 

Cath believes that we have come to define winning too narrowly - as a moment in time crossing the line, winning a medal, and at a level set by others rather than ourselves. That 'win at all costs' mentality has seen 'the costs' rise to unacceptable levels. 

Cath talks about the need to redefine winning in a way that helps us to explore our potential better and thrive over the long-term, to ensure that crossing the line first or last is connected to something of lasting value. Jake and Damian respond to Cath's excellent keynote speech.

E71 - Olympics Special #1 - Ian Thorpe
58:17

Ian Thorpe won five Olympic gold medals, the greatest total of any Australian. As his first Olympics approached, in Sydney, he had broken 10 world records - four of them in four days at the 1999 Pan Pacific titles. On the first night of Sydney 2000 he won the 400m freestyle, breaking his own word record, then combined with his team to inflict the United States’ first defeat ever in the 4 x 100m freestyle relay, setting another world record. 

At Athens 2004, Ian won the 200m freestyle - billed as “the race of the century” - against Dutchman Pieter van den Hoogenband and American Michael Phelps.

In April 2018, Ian was awarded an Order of Merit by the Australian Olympic Committee.

E61 - Chris Bosh: How to successfully deal with change
1:11:00

Chris Bosh is a NBA Hall of Famer, eleven-time All-Star, two-time NBA champion, Olympic gold medalist, and the league’s Global Ambassador. Chris had his playing days cut short at their prime by a freak medical condition. His extraordinary career ended not at a time of his choosing but “in a doctor’s office in the middle of the afternoon.” 

Forced to reckon with how to find meaning to carry forward, he found himself looking back over his path, from a teenager in Dallas who balanced basketball with the high school robotics club to the pinnacle of the NBA and beyond.

Reflecting on all he learned from a long list of basketball legends, from LeBron and Kobe to Pat Riley, he saw that his important lessons weren’t about basketball so much as the inner game of success—right attitude, right commitment, right flow within a team. Now he shares that journey with his book ‘Letters to a Young Athlete’ which is out now.

Christian’s path to Formula One management ladder began behind the wheel, as a talented young racer, before at the age of 25 he founded the Arden International Race Team.

E53 - Zack George: The power of internal motivation
1:05:14

Zack George is one of the world’s top CrossFit athletes, a fitness influencer and officially the UK’s Fittest Man 2020. Zack’s story is one of dramatic change, resilience and hard work. As a child and early teenager, Zack was severely overweight and deeply unhappy in his body. It was his father’s offer of a Playstation to lose some weight that became the catalyst for change in Zack’s life. 

After realising what he could achieve with hard work and determination, Zack put his mind to accomplishing greater challenges by taking up a variety of sports and in 2013, Zack came across a YouTube video documenting the 2013 CrossFit Games and from that moment on, set himself the goal of making it as an individual athlete to the CrossFit Games. In 2015, Zack opened CrossFit BFG in Leicester and began to seriously focus on his training to become a CrossFit Games contender. Zack went on to achieve first place in the UK CrossFit Open 2020. Unfortunately Zack is injured at the moment and can’t take part in the Games in 2021, we wish him all the best and know he’ll be back!

E34 - Tyrone Mings: How our struggles lead to our successes
1:03:19

Tyrone Mings is a defender for Aston Villa and England, with a real life story of rags to riches in English football.

Tyrone joined Southampton as a kid but suffered rejection when he was released by Saints in 2009 for being 'too small'. He dropped down to Non-League, playing for Yate Town and Chippenham Town while working as a mortgage advisor.

He seriously considered packing football in all together but got his break when Ipswich signed him up for a fee of £10,000 before sealing an £8 million move to Bournemouth and realising his dream of becoming a Premier League player. A serious knee injury restricted his early appearances before a loan switch to Aston Villa in 2019 saw him help the Midlands club to promotion from the Championship.

Tyrone sealed a permanent move to Villa for £26.5 million and was called up to Gareth Southgate's England squad in 2019.
