So I start this episode with a look at the risks of eating that cake once the candles are out. A lot has been written about peak performance. There are books, articles, podcasts, seminars, speeches and many gurus all claiming to know the magical steps to achieving high performance in your career. So, who’s right? What are you supposed to believe? Marc Effron, author of the book 8 Steps to High Performance has taken a look at a lot of the material and separated the fluff from the science. Listen as he explains what really works if you want to really excel in your career.   Ever wondered whether or not you should buy a new car if your old car works just fine?
