The Zone Podcast

In our podcast we visit with high performing guests to find out how they overcome failure and stay “in the zone” of optimal performance. In the Zone describes the human ability to be in the moment and completely focus on executing a task, even in the most challenging circumstances. Research overwhelmingly demonstrates that high performers have this ability and learn how to control it. 

We host athletes, musicians, and other entertainers, doctors, nurses, lawyers, teachers, preachers, entrepreneurs, and my others to find out how they get, “in the zone.” We can learn much from each of them by understanding how they utilize mental skills in their pursuit of mastery.
