LAUNCHING JANUARY 2022
What do astronauts, Olympic champions, and Nobel laureates do differently that allows
them to achieve at such a high level?
High achievers share the same four attributes: intrinsic motivation, perseverance, strong
foundation, constantly learning through informal means. The key to their success is that they
do all four of these things at the same time. Based on research and in-person interviews with
astronauts, Nobel Prize winners, and Olympic champions, The Success Factor outlines the
approach that individuals aspiring to improve their performance can adopt.
Using these four shared attributes as a guide, The Success Factor helps you reach your peak by
applying the lessons of high achievers in your own life: identify your passion using a Passion
Audit; learn how and where to find a mentor and how to build a mentoring team; develop your
own community of practice; pursue your interests through informal learning; manage your
time and energy. The Success Factor comes with online resources that feature a downloadable
Passion Audit worksheet, Mentoring Team worksheet, and Goal Audit worksheet. The book offers scripts for approaching potential mentors and a list of uncommon places to find a mentor, such as webinars, airports, and social media.
The Success Factor features exclusive interviews with high achievers, including such people as Dr. Tony Fauci NIH/NIAID Institute Director; Dr Mike Brown, Nobel prize winner; Dr Peggy Whitson, Former NASA Chief Astronaut; Maxine Clark, founder and former CEO of Build-A-Bear Workshop; and Steve Kerr, eight time NBA Champion and head coach of the Golden State Warriors.
