To stay ahead of the pack demands stamina and endurance, both physical and mental. It also requires a certain amount of skill to extricate yourself from a situation and look at it dispassionately. It's amazing how many people come out in front just by stepping out of their heads and getting a whole new perspective on their situation.
You can develop this ability that many great leaders have and you can learn to perfect it unconsciously. It's amazing how a corporate athlete like you can train your mind and physiology to respond positively to previously debilitating circumstances, propelling you forward.

"I must admit, I was very disappointed when I was singled out to be coached, thinking my manager had it in for me. Barely a few minutes into the session, however, I realised how much I stood to gain from this personalised program. I'm now a confident speaker and participate boldly in team meetings. Highly recommend this for anyone wanting to get ahead." Komal Kumar
