Meet Grant 'Axe' Rawlinson - a Team Decision Making coach and a Human Powered Explorer. Grant uses the lessons he learnt from his various explorations to structure high performance and empowered teams. He teaches us the important lessons he learnt along the way to be 'anti-fragile', taking critical decisions is difficult situations and leading in complex environments.

Tune in for an interesting session with Grant.

Tune in for an exciting Q&A with Jake Aliker, High Performance Coach, as he discusses the life skills he has learnt in his journey and what practices have helped him best to overcome the stress of performing at one's best capacity and keeping himself in check, by 'applying to self' the training which he undertakes with athletes.

In an inspiring session, he shares how you can model Mindful Coaching which he practices for his performance training with sports athletes in today's Corporate culture. The game is different, but the motive is same - High Performance!

We are beginning this year with a bang! diving straight head-on with insightful and provocative sessions with our Thought Leaders!

We are starting off with our first session with Anna Caplice - International Rugby Player.

Anna is currently a back-row player for Harlequins in the UK but also plays for the Irish national team. Anna has 14 caps for Ireland and hopefully has many more to come. Juggling her time between playing rugby and teaching, Anna is a leader in women’s rugby.

In this session, we discussed building mental resilience and overcoming challenges, which is more pertinent now more than ever. As an athlete, Anna has had to overcome mental and physical challenges and still manages to come out on top.

Besides topics surrounding mental resilience, we also hope to just talked about the women’s rugby game in general and female athleticism.

Session hosted and moderated by Hannah Sheehy.

Some of you guys know that in the last two years I have started to explore a journey in meditation. This was initiated by a meeting with Fr Laurence Freeman.
Fr Laurence’s non-denominational approach to meditation has garnered him many admirers particularly within the financial community. He has promoted the concept of contemplative leadership in business. In fact he has designed a programme on meditation which is thought on the MBA course at Georgetown University.
I was very grateful that when I asked Fr Laurence to do a webinar, he agreed. 
The session went off brilliantly and the Video version - which includes a meditation practice can be found at

Over the last few weeks we have done a number of live interactive webinars. Please find link to one we did with Frazer McArdell and Dan Norton - Moderated by Hannah Sheehy. This was entitled - How to be an Olympian. It was very enjoyable 

This podcast is a review of this session by my 13 year old daughter Molly Sheehy. Some great insights. Please listen.

This is a very short catch up podcast. I just wanted to share with you some things I learnt over the last 2 weeks working with Jake Aliker. 

I wanted to share my personal favourite take aways and life hacks.

First and foremost

‘there is NO substitute for work and preparation’

Whether you have prepared or not, there are some things you can do last minute to boost your performance before a meeting, exam or even a dinner party.

1) 40 mins hard exercise 1hr before you are ‘on’ helps recall

2) A shot of expresso followed by 20min nap/meditation makes u sharp - the coffee will jolt you at the 20 min mark

3) 5 mins Box Breathing reduces anxiety and makes u sharp - better than the cold shower alternative

On a ‘self’ level we all have an inner voice, an ego, which was formed when we were 7-9 years old. It talks to us and persuaded us to act in ‘less mature ways’, identify this voice and reduce its power. Make it speak in different ways. It will give you back control.

This is only 10pc of what I learnt from Jake. It’s what I took from our discussions. But there are many more. I can (and have) act on the above personally and has been a revelation.

I am looking to make incremental changes and the above are easy to adopt.

I recommend to listen to the previous podcasts with Jake and Box Breathing and watch the recording of our live webinar at

Keep an eye out for our upcoming courses with Jake by signing up for our news letter at or email me at

Further to Jake's recommendation in the last podcast we have prepared a 5 minute guided Box Breathing narrated by Hannah. 


This can be used before and after an activity to heighten performance and concentration as well as being a powerful stress reliever. 

Hannah counts the timing so you can clear your mind. Bookmark and use often.

In todays Podcast we are going to focus how we bring leadership to our families - focusing on how to maximize the potential of our children. 
I speak to Jake Aliker ( who has developed a program which is focused on building a high performance team around your teenager or teenagers to maximise their potential and creating an edge. A sub-text would be - why parents don’t get enough credit. This program is also focused on growing and maintaining the lifelong bond between parent and child.
You may recognise Jake from a hit Netflix Series - F1 Drive to Survive where he can be seen on the pit wall and mentoring Max VerStappen. Jake had worked for Red Bull as Max Verstappens personal trainer and coach from when Max was 16. He has now taken on an additional 6 young Drivers of GP elite who compete in the Porsche Supercup as well as other work with families with kids who are high profile but also whose aims are a little more modest.

Jake has taken this experience, and experience of others, to create a system to help families with a focus on mental resilience and communication tools. Meditation and contemplation being an important part of the practical implementation of this. 
The purpose of this podcast is to provide a brief introduction to Jake and the topic including the 3 Pillars he has developed -
+ Mindset,

In the Webinar in the last podcast there was a Guided Meditation. I have pulled it out as a standalone so you can use this as a resource. Note if you want a longer one I suggest play at 1/2 speed. 😍
