As business owners, our intention is to stay in business for the long term. So, what's the key to enduring success over the long haul? My guest today, Alan Stein, Jr., suggests it involves applying fundamental principles of success, navigating stress, overcoming stagnation, and defeating burnout. Alan shares valuable insights from his book Sustain Your Game, drawing parallels between sports seasons and managing business cycles. Tune in to this conversation to learn the importance of knowing when to push and when to pull back for optimal performance and the necessity of staying connected to one's deeper purpose to prevent burnout.
At his core, Alan Stein, Jr. is a performance coach with a passion for helping business leaders change behaviors. He spent 15+ years working with the highest performing basketball players on the planet (including NBA superstars Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, and Kobe Bryant). He now transfers his unique expertise to maximize both individual and organizational performance. Alan is a dynamic storyteller who delivers practical, actionable lessons that can be implemented immediately. He teaches proven principles on how to simplify success and utilize the same approaches in business that elite athletes use to perform at a world-class level.
