Veteran executive Sarah Robb O’Hagan dreamed of achieving spectacular success, but her life didn’t always unfold that way. She succeeded in many ways, but she also faced failure at times in her career as an executive at Virgin Atlantic, Nike, Gatorade and Equinox. Now CEO of the indoor cycling company Flywheel Sports, she says that when you face obstacles, you must make a choice: Stick to the beaten track or strike out on your own. If you choose the conventional route, you may pay the price of ignoring much of what makes you unique. O’Hagan – a wife, mother and endurance athlete – urges you to make the courageous choice to use your unique strengths to become the “Extreme You.” getAbstract recommends her lively, thought-provoking motivational manual to businesspeople seeking inspiration and even an alternative approach to leadership.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to harness your unique strengths to succeed,
- How to create your “Extreme You” and
- How to sharpen your “peripheral vision” to see new opportunities.
