I am one of the most decorated American rowers of all time. I’ve said that so many times, and yet somehow it still amazes me. People sometimes marvel at how much I must have sacrificed to get here. That always makes me uncomfortable because the decade I spent training with the United States Olympic rowing team never felt like a sacrifice.
Sure, it was difficult, and at times I felt like quitting, but there wasn’t anywhere else that I wanted to be. I loved what did. I was living my passion. I had a vision of excellence and purpose much like the ancient Greek idea of “arete” (loosely defined as the act of living up to one’s full potential). Ultimately I achieved that vision in the form of back-to-back Olympic gold medals.
Now I want to help others do the same.
There’s no reason why you, too, can’t live your passion and achieve your vision in work and in life. Through my presentations, workshops and one-on-one coaching, I will teach you actionable strategies to attain and sustain peak performance. By drawing parallels between my former career as an athlete and my current career as a corporate attorney, I will illustrate how to apply the principles of elite sport to high-powered business.
Below are some examples of the presentations and workshops I offer. These are just examples, though. I always tailor my message to my audience to make sure that you get the most out of your time with me.
