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.
