Building Doors with Lauren Karan

 Greg Layton discusses the importance of pursuing personal development and the power of building a deeper understanding of one’s psyche for a world-class performance. 

Greg Layton is the founder of Chief Maker, host of the Inner Chief Podcast and an Executive Coach specialising in helping CEOs and Executive Teams lead turnarounds and transformation. 

Greg recommends knowing and embracing your shadow self which he sees as an opportunity to learn more about yourself and grow from it.

Greg outlines how athletes approach their performance with the prepare, perform, recover, and review model and shares ways on how any business person could apply the same model to deliver world-class performance and he says it starts with identifying their performance theatre. 

Greg highlights the importance of setting meaningful goals. He believes goals help us simplify the complexities of modern lives by distinguishing the relevant, important aspects of life from the noise. Diving deeper, he shares how anyone can organise their days to become a world-class performer.
