The Focal Point: Sarah Cecil

by Chris Musgrove

23 July 2021

It’s the last in the first series of The Focal Point podcast, and it’s also an Olympic special. The guys are joined by sports psychologist Sarah Cecil, who discusses her focal point, the humble safety pin.

If you were asked to name an object that has a high performance angle, chances are you wouldn’t choose this one.

Sarah uses this humble household item to highlight how important psychological safety is, how appearing to do very little can be doing a lot, and how taking ownership of your own emotions all help people achieve their potential.

This episode is full of ideas and insights that can be applied by anyone in any environment and is well worth a listen in the runup to the official opening of the Games.—Sarah-Cecil-e1129hs
