Learn to Tap Your Inner Olympian

How did a kid who got into sports to make friends become a two-time Olympian? And how did she place second in the Olympic Trials with no physical training? Olympian Marilyn King will share proven tips and tools for achieving exceptional performance.

Learn To Tap Your Inner Olympian
Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

Two-time Olympian and World Record-setter Marilyn King placed second in the 1980 U.S. Olympic Trials using only mental training. This extraordinary experience led to a career researching the exceptional human performance skills learned through sports and applying them to business, education and peace.

During this thought-provoking evening Ms. King will show you how to live every day like an Olympian, including:
  • The three essential traits of all high achievers.
  • The most important daily practice for sustained high performance.
  • Why courage is the first key to achieving the "unimaginable".
  • The truth about willpower and discipline: why they are NOT necessary—or even desirable—for sustained peak performance.

She has been featured in numerous articles and books including, Enlightened Power: How Women Are Transforming the Practice of Leadership by Lin Coughlin.
