Our Guest on Episode 36 of Business Breakfast TV is 3x Olympian Dr. Cath Bishop.
Dr. Cath Bishop is a three-time Olympian, World Champion, and Olympic silver medalist in rowing. In her career as a British diplomat, Cath specialised in stabilisation policy for conflict-affected parts of the world.
In business, Cath acts as a coach and consultant, advising on team and leadership development and cultural change, and teaches on Executive Education programmes at the Judge Business School, Cambridge University. Her book ‘The Long Win’ was listed in the FT’s Top 10 Business Books of 2020.
Cath’s book ‘The Long Win’ examines our obsession with winning and draws on her personal experience of high performance, high-pressure environments from Olympic sport to warzone diplomacy to boardrooms to trace how the idea of winning has become a defining concept across business, sport, education, and politics.
But as it has become increasingly narrow, our definition of winning is holding us back rather than allowing us to explore our potential. Faced with the complex challenges and opportunities of the 21st century, she offers a new, broader approach – The Long Win – based on Clarity of purpose, a Constant learning mindset, and the prioritisation of human Connections in everything that we do.
