In this podcast, executive and life coach Raghav Parkash shares with us his principles for coaching and living. Rag has worked with executives from many organizations to help them achieve high-performance and build high-performance teams. His ideas may surprise you as he explains how uncertainty can be your friend and how high-performance is intrinsic in our make-up. We just have to learn to “get out of our own way.”

Rag’s examples bring his principles to life. You’ll be interested to learn why the scariest part of a roller coaster is standing in line … and why Rag believes “certainty is overrated.” As businesses face continued challenges — coping with economic uncertainty, managing employees working remotely and anticipating the next major market challenge, Rag brings a breath of fresh air to managers and anyone seeking to build their legacy.

So if you want to know:

  • How lack of confidence isn’t a cause — it’s a symptom
  • Why we create our own uncertainty
  • The key to being more creative
  • How to overcome procrastination
  • Why you shouldn’t try to change your thinking
