Leadership Insights #16: Pursuing Personal Podiums: Team Summit's Inspiring Journey

Published 3 months ago • 2 min read

We recently had the privilege of working with Team Summit's young athletes, headed for the Winter Youth Olympics in South Korea this month! Witnessing their infectious energy through backflips, dancing, and supportive cheers during mock press conferences and 1:1 interviews was a true testament to their vibrant spirit.

The balance these athletes maintain is remarkable. Juggling schoolwork, intensive on and off the snow training, and community service, they embody a level of discipline and commitment that's truly inspiring. Honestly, I think we could all use a time management course from them!

Their camaraderie and mutual support, combined with their extraordinary talents, left us in energized and inspired. The way they push and encourage each other is a reflection of their unwavering team spirit and dedication.

To Team Summit: Good luck! We will be cheering you on every step of the way. Your journey is not just about skiing or snowboarding; it's a story of passion, resilience, and community. We can't wait to see where your careers take you.

Look for cues such as leaning in, dilated pupils, a slight head tilt, mirroring of your body language, and genuine smiles. Projecting the right non-verbal signals is crucial.

Hello friends and colleagues! Goodbye, 2023! I've had my share of ups and downs, from fighting Lyme disease and helping a close friend through tough times to starting up the TruPotential Group. It's been quite the ride, and honestly, I'm pretty proud of what I've managed to pull off. I'm not trying to brag—I just think it's good to give ourselves a pat on the back now and then. This year was a real learning curve for me. It pushed me into some scary places, but I had great people around me to...

Hello friends and colleagues! Eight years ago, during the holiday season, our family faced a heart-wrenching revelation - my father’s cancer had progressed to his brain.
