EP #115: Mental Strength to Succeed – Learning Lessons from International Cricket

In today’s podcast episode #115, I’m joined by a former international cricketer and Senior Leadership Coach, Jeremy Snape.  We go on to discuss mental toughness in cricket, the pressures of playing at the international level in front of thousands of spectators, as well as looking at the relationship between sport performance and business. Enjoy tuning in!

Key Learning Points:

  • Our brains are built for safety, to keep us safe.
  • Being calm, patient and instinctive are skills that can be developed and help us perform to our maximum.
  • A “one ball at a time mentality” is helpful – focusing on making the next moment as high quality as we can.
  • Counting and breathing techniques can refocus our mind.
  • Consider setting transformational goals, to stretch yourself and others.
