Katie Peuvrelle is a masterful high-performance coach based in San Jose, California, who works with executives and emerging leaders in big-name companies, as well as, with many startups’ founders, and VCs who are out there leaving their dent in the world. She also loves to work with athletes, from amateurs to Olympians, and professionals who want to take their game to the next level.
She is the author of "Leap: Own Your Excellence and Engage Your Best Self in Business, Sports, the Arts, and Life."
In this episode, we focus on mindsets as a belief system or philosophy. We spoke about the growth mindset as defined by Carol Dweck. Katie explains how she transcends the dichotomy between setting the mind and growing, between mindset (a mind that is set on a certain belief system or philosophy) and growth, development, and evolution. She gives examples of how we can have a certain mindset for a while, and how we can evolve our beliefs and philosophy, then stay there for a while, and learn some more, and go into the next level of mindset. Katie stressed that underlining all this growth is a collection of principles or set of philosophies that are driven by our internal values, what's important to us, in whatever we are doing in the world, being and performing.
We also explore why she used the title LEAP in her book, and how her own experiences as an ice skater informed her approaches. Katie provides examples of how people learned and grew from the experiences of the COVID19 pandemic; the importance of strengthening the capacity to recover from falling and failures; and how entrepreneurs, start-up founders leap and lead into the unknown to brave new possibilities.
“Listen to the still quiet voice in our mind.” - Katie Peuvrelle
