about

How do you get someone else committed to reaching their fullest potential? It's a question that challenges new managers and seasoned executives alike, echoes through coaches' heads as they watch a gifted athlete underachieve, and keeps parents up at night.

Igniting the Third Factor, Peter synthesizes his life's work into the five core practices exceptional leaders use to ignite the Third Factor in themselves and others - whether it's in the locker room before a gold medal Olympic hockey game or at a routine performance review. Peter works through an easy-to-understand model, providing a clear view of what separates 'igniters' from 'extinguishers' and exploring a wealth of strategies you can put to use immediately in your world. Like the laws of physics, these principles apply in any environment. They may look different when used by a parent, a manager, or a coach, but the forces of work remain the same.

Igniting the Third Factor is a fast-paced journey packed with familiar faces, engaging stories, and humor. As he moves from the dressing room to the corner office and back again, Peter weaves insights from well-known Canadian, American, and British coaches and executives with his personal experience to provide a practical guide to helping others excel - all set against the backdrop of an exciting 30 years of involvement in the Canadian Olympic Movement.

Dr. Peter Jensen has attended six Olympic Games as a member of the Canadian team, worked with over 40 medalwinning athletes and their coaches, and is the mental training consultant for Canada's Olympic women's hockey team. He is an instructor at Canada's foremost business school, Queen's School of Business, and the founder of Performan...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone can learn something from this book I have been carrying this book around with me for years from the East Coast to the West Coast of Canada packing and unpacking it many times. I picked it up after my company had a training session had a meeting/training day and someone left behind a few copies when I was cleaning the banquet room. This year I actually read it and I am glad that I did. I have marked and dogeared many pages where I want to go back and reflect more on what was written. I also wondered why I was so different that my family and this book explained part of that. If you are curious about your own leadership skills or you are a leader of anyone(parents, teachers, couches, team leaders, company owners or even just want to support that friend that needs to ignite third factor) I highly suggest reading and reflecting on this book and sharing it with someone. The advice is not preachy, the examples are valid and easy to follow.
