Episode Show Notes

Timothy R Clark invites olympic medalist, speaker, trainer and consultant Dan Collins to discuss olympic team cultures. Dan believes that winners are created at all levels and prides himself on working with leaders to create safe, challenging, and purposeful environments. Some highlights from this episode include:

Making your contribution matter.
Your contribution matters. It really matters. Take work seriously, playing small doesn't help anyone. Think bigger and dream bigger because there's enough room in the world for everyone to be at their best. What a place that would be.

Finding your strengths and leaning into them.
Everyone's got strengths. There's no one on the planet that doesn't have a great set of strengths. Teams and organizations are built on individual strengths. To find your strengths you've got to put yourself under pressure. You've got to heat them up and really test them and you'll be better for it.

Getting a higher level of self-awareness and commitment.
In order to improve you need to surround yourself with friends, family, and colleagues who will tell you when you are not performing at your best. Only when you're told the truth can you get better. It requires a commitment to excellence.

Micro-coaching is better than a performance review.
Inside organizations the traditional coaching model is vastly different from coaching in the athletic world. Instead of yearly/quarterly performance reviews there needs to be informal daily micro-coaching similar to the frequency of coaches and athletes.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
