Rest. Practise. Perform. What elite sport can teach leaders about sustainable wellbeing and performance is the new book from Karen Meager and John McLachlan.

The authors take the latest scientific and academic thinking and make it useful and easy to apply for everyone, from the leader of an SME to the CEO of a blue-chip corporation. 

Whether you grapple with the relentless demands of your leadership role, are struggling to balance your team’s wellbeing with delivering results, or are simply worried you, and those around you, may not be performing in a way that is both effective and healthy, this book can help. 

Contemporary workplace cultures often shackle employees to a culture of ceaseless high performance and productivity. This results in lacklustre productivity, diminished creativity and a shattered workforce. 

In contrast, elite sports have honed time-tested strategies for sustaining peak performance, consistency and getting results without burnout or exhaustion. 

Rest. Practise. Perform. is a practical and illuminating guide that offers a fresh perspective on leadership, unleashing an empowering, harmonious approach that’s inspired by elite sports’ proven disciplines.

Karen Meager and John McLachlan draw from extensive research and their deep understanding of leadership behaviours to provide you with a playbook for adapting elite sports’ winning techniques to your own team or organisation.

In the book, you’ll discover how to apply the incredible rhythm of the rest, practise, and perform cycle and explore how it can revolutionise you and your team’s productivity, performance and well-being.

John and Karen’s approach is grounded in research and professional practice that spans 20-plus years. Both Karen and John hold Masters degrees in psychology and health research. Karen’s specialist research area is mental health and burnout in organisations, and John’s is what organisations can learn from elite sports performance.

The goal of Rest. Practise. Perform. is to help leaders and organisations find a working rhythm that delivers top performance while also prioritising people and their health. 

It is available now from all good bookstores and via Amazon.
