The Crooked Rim motivates, inspires and empowers all readers with practical tools and strategies to master their own mindset, strengthen personal resilience and develop resilient teams, and perform like a corporate athlete to manage elevated expectations and insurmountable stress.
Through The Crooked Rim, Pam Borton inspires hope, confidence, and a powerful belief that resilience and mental toughness are attainable. For more than 30 years, she has coached these principles and guided elite NCAA players and now corporate athletes to their own Final Fours…and she shows readers that they can do it, too. It is a personal playbook to master one’s own mindset for success. It is filled with real-life experiences, positive psychology and well-being exercises, emotional intelligence insights, best practices, successes and failures–everything an individual needs to be resilient and mentally tough in the game of life.
The Crooked Rim teaches readers practical tools and strategies to master a tougher mindset, strengthen personal resilience and develop resilient teams, and perform like a corporate athlete to manage elevated expectations and insurmountable stress. It takes a holistic approach to navigate barriers and to deliver the level of excellence stakeholders expect today. It takes optimizing more than one aspect of life to achieve sustainable success. It takes the same approach elite athletes use to train to be the best – they focus on the physical, mental, emotional, and purposeful aspects of their lives. While corporate athletes must train in the same way to perform at their best, most try to accomplish this without the knowledge or coaching. The mind is the most powerful muscle in the body, and it can either propel one to new heights or prevent one from fulfilling their dreams. In The Crooked Rim, Pam shows how to build the mental muscle required to reach the next level and experience your own final four.
