About The Class
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Is it time to try something new? Through the metaphor of sport, you will learn a strategy to reframe your approach. John shares the story of how he eschewed his coaches’ advice and quit trying to fix his weaknesses. Instead, he applied “design thinking” to his training, focusing on his core strengths, which lead to a world-record-breaking performance and Olympic medal.
