I talk to Brad Stulberg, writer and coach, of health & wellness in the context of high performance. We talk about his books, Peak Performance and The Passion Paradox, how to take a pro-active approach to health and performance, and also what managers can do to cultivate a culture of health within their organisation. We go through all the fads and folk advice about what is allegedly “healthy” and boil it down to just the facts.
