Jim Steele is fascinated by the nature of peak performance. So much so, that he has spent much of the last decade working with highly successful individuals from business and from the world of sport, seeking to understand not just what makes these people tick, but what makes them tick so much faster, stronger and longer.
Jim Steele began his career as a life insurance salesman. However, by his own admission, his early performance was decidedly average. But when 'shadowing' one of the company's peak performers he made a discovery that would re-shape his whole life. He realised there are definable strategies of mindset and behaviour that that can propel an average performer towards excellence.
He became a tireless reader, gradually piecing together his own unique take on peak performance. He cites The Success System that Never Fails by W Clement Stone and Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude by W Clement Stone and Napoleon Hill as having been particularly influential. This first taste of personal development allowed him to achieve a breakthrough in his own performance, winning many awards including Top UK Salesman - surpassing the company's definition of 'Excellence' by more than 300%.
Today Jim Steele is a director of a mindset and behavioural change organisation that works with some 300 UK companies and around 40,000 delegates a year. The company delivers bespoke training solutions along with the highly successful "Breakthrough to peak performance" programme which Jim jointly developed.
Alongside his conference work he is also a leading Peak Performance Coach whose methodology is employed both in the commercial world and with many leading athletes and teams, including Roger Black, Manchester City FC, Saracens Rugby Club, Northampton Rugby Club, Widnes Rugby League Club, and the British Ice Skating Federation. He also acts as a leadership coach for senior executives at many FTSE 100 and international corporations, including Disney, BT, Goldman Sachs, Marks & Spencer and Glaxo Smith Kline.
In the conference setting he has also developed and delivered 'tandem' presentations with successful sportsmen and achievers such as Roger Black, Chris Moon and Barry McGuigan, highlighting the value of a winning - even a World Championship winning - mindset, in a corporate environment.
Jim Steele's passion for excellence has led him to address audiences World-wide, and his energy, insight and great sense of humour creates a massive impact whenever he in on stage.
