This week on the Way of Champions Podcast we welcome
Leadership Expert Tim Kight. Tim founded Focus 3 in the mid-80’s in
Southern California, a life-long student of elite performance with
the passion and drive to help organizations achieve their goals. In
his college days, Tim transferred from Ohio State to UCLA while
running Track. It was at UCLA that he witnessed John Wooden win his
9th and 10th national championship. An experience that instilled a
great curiosity in Tim as to what distinguishes elite performers
from average performers. A question he’s pursued answering ever
since that moment. The answer for Tim was curated through observing
and documenting the mindset and behavior patterns of elite
performers. What was discovered was that elite performers think and
behave differently because they’ve adopted a system.
We cover a lot of Tim’s incredible material, including how
leaders create culture, how to recognize a leader, and a discussion
about the leadership crisis the world is facing right now. You can
find time on Facebook
, and at his website
