As the old saying goes “champions aren’t born, they are made”. Olympic Gold Medalists have reached a level of success that very few people in the world have achieved. It starts by setting a culture of performance and excellence.

They were Noble Prize Winners, Fortune 500 CEOs, Movie Stars, National Correspondents, Olympians, Philanthropists, Musicians, Military Heroes and more. The one group that could consistently tell Nikki why they were so successful was the Olympians. They constantly look to understand their strengths and how they can improve their weaknesses.
