Webinar Details

I was delighted to chat with Gerry Hussey, Performance Psychologist and co-founder of Soulspace, to take some insights and guidance from him as to how best we can continue to perform, given the current circumstances.


Strategies are only as good as the people that execute them. In this environment we need calm focussed decision makers. How well a company responds to this is based on the mindset of the leader -  as a fish rots from the head down.


Most big business breakthroughs were made during recessions and in times of crisis. Situations like this are the birthplace of companies who see things in a whole new way. That's why the Chinese have the same word for crisis and opportunity.


We need to invest in our mindset, that of our  teams and ask really powerful questions to keep focussed . 

Topics Include The Following:

  • What are the 3 main Questions we need to ask ourselves:


    1. What's Important Now - WIN? How do we best get through the immediate future?
    2. As a business, what’s our new reality?
    3. What parts of my business are no longer fit for purpose. What do we need to do to adapt to the new reality?
  • Importance of the mindset of the leader. A fish rots from the head down. What do you need to do to ensure you perform at your very best?

  • How Health and Performance go hand in hand? Importance of sleep, exercise and diet.
