Wordt met 'TOP inspiratie' de lat niet te hoog gelegd?
Een boek voor ieder die zijn top wil bereiken en het beste uit zichzelf en zijn team wil halen. Bergbeklimmer en manager Katja Staartjes inspireert lezers dromen om te zetten in concrete doelen, en die vervolgens te realiseren. 'Top-inspiratie' is opgebouwd uit zestig krachtige stukjes rondom aansprekende thema's, elk voorzien van een bijpassende foto.
A book for every individual or team who wants to reach their objectives and want to make most of themselves. Expedition climber and manager Katja Staartjes inspires her readers to transform their dreams into concrete goals, and then go out and reach them. Peak Performance is a practical book that faces the facts. Each of the 60 themes on the subject of reaching the top is described in crisp, evocative language, accompanied by vivid, sometimes breath-taking photographs from actual climbing expeditions.
A climbing expedition is life in a nutshell. The route to a summit over 8,000 metres high not only tests you physically, it demands mental resilience. Staartjes draws parallels with everyday situations where passion, goals, leadership, teamwork, trust, integrity, fear, and dealing with setbacks are part of life. She looks at what it is that ultimately determines your success.
'Peak Performance' offers straightforward guidelines about how to get to the top - whatever that top might be for individuals and teams at home and at work.
