Learning from setbacks – how a handful of fantastic failures in the world’s oldest desert led to a world record

We’re all faced with setbacks in our personal and professional lives. How do we overcome these and turn those lessons in to great successes? Jason Caldwell is a world-class athlete, a trainer in leadership and high-performance, and keynote speaker. In 2015 Jason went on to captain and represent the United States in a rowing race over 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean (Taliskerwhiskyatlanticchallenge.com). On January 19th 2017 Jason and his crew crossed the finish line once again, not only winning the race, but breaking the World Record as the fastest team to ever row across the Atlantic Ocean. During this show we are going to be discussing lessons from Jason’s latest adventure and second world record set this year while crossing the Namibian desert unassisted.  Join us this Friday to hear Jason’s amazing story, and how learning from your failures can help you to come back stronger and even more resilient than before!

This show will be airing live on 17th August 2018 at 8am(PT)/11am(EST)/4pm(GMT). To listen please visit http://www.voiceamerica.com/show/1959/

‘I am more than pleased to share my experience of the TEP programme. For me it has been an invaluable part of my own learning and development for several reasons. The books that we have studied have always resonated with the place that I have been at that time. To study a book with a group of like minded individuals, all professional and all keen to develop themselves and others has made me read with a depth that I would normally not use. The result being a richness of understanding that I can apply and want to apply, into my business immediately The guests that you have invited to to talk about their journeys have left their own gift with me – one of them being a depth and breadth of stories to illustrate points on my own programmes. And finally, for me the sense of not being alone, in my loft, in pursuit of my own personal success, but being able to feedback and to celebrate successes together. This is a fantastic community to belong and a commitment to my own personal success and to that of others. Thank you Chris for having and holding the vision’ Carroll Macey, Managing Director CM2C Change Management Consultancy (Nottinghamshire) http://www.cm2c.com.
