Dr. Andy Walshe is a globally recognised leader and expert in the field of elite human performance. He has spent more than 20 years researching ways to “Hack Performance” in sport, culture, military and business to create a deeper understanding of the “Human Potential Construct”. Andy’s ultimate vision is a world where we have established a known recipe for elite performance and thus can equip some of our greatest minds with the tools they need to succeed and improve the world. Andy’s elite performance programs are designed to make accessible, and to democratise these tools, and understandable to all regardless of industry, vocation or passion.
Currently leading Human Performance for Red Bull, Andy works with hundreds of international athletes and business leaders to develop and implement elite performance models. In 2012 he lead the performance plan for Felix Baumgartner’s record-breaking jump to Earth from the stratosphere. Andy also founded “Glimpses”, the annual Human Potential Red Ball gathering, a highly-interactive two-day conference bringing together world-class talent.
In today’s podcast, Andy and Mark sit down to discuss the intricacies of human potential and how certain qualities of elite performers resonate across sectors, industries and arenas; how companies can evolve to enable more talented employees to excel and his project Human 2.0 which looks at how new technologies especially in the arena of Artificial Intelligence encourage us to explore our own potential at a much higher level.
