In this episode of the Zettelcast, Camden Bucey and his brother Kipton engage in a dynamic conversation exploring the parallels between sustained high performance in the corporate world and the rigorous training and discipline of elite athletes. The discussion is anchored around a 2001 Harvard Business Review article titled, “The Making of a Corporate Athlete.”

The brothers consider how traditional management theories only partially address why some individuals excel under pressure. In line with the article, they advocate for a holistic approach to performance, emphasizing the integration of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual dimensions. Through their personal experiences and insights, they highlight the importance of discipline, routine, and mindset in achieving peak performance and resilience, both in sports and the corporate sphere.
