Ambition into strategy. Strategy into reality. That is the specialty of our guest this week, Michael Canic [@makingstrategyhappen]. His most recent book, Ruthless Consistency, helps shed light on how to align your actions with your intentions. In business, this approach has everything to do with success and in sport, it’s no different. Michael provides examples of how to embody these practices in the world of athletics to improve performance and dominate the competition. Athlete or coach, we promise to bring you the strategies to up your game beyond just sets, reps, and sprints.

Never has there been a more concise conversation to move you, your business, or your leadership forward. Michael Canic is the author of Ruthless Consistency and the head of Making Strategy Happen. There were so many thoughtful takeaways in this week’s episode including an explanation of the poisons that inhibit success. Michael also puts the guys through a thought exercise of how they would put themselves out of business. Seeing yourself through the eyes of your competitors is just one of the tactics discussed. I especially liked when Michael said that people were “bloodhounds for inconsistency”. When reputation is so closely intertwined with leadership, being accountable to yourself is the first step to being perceived as reliable by everyone else. Learn how to apply these principles to your personal, professional, and coaching life. Listen NOW!
