Jonathan Armes joins me on the podcast. Jonathan is an occupational psychologist who, through his firm Capital-Shift, specializes in helping business leaders and teams reach higher levels of leadership and performance. His approach, coined “Thought Intelligence”, is at the cutting edge of psychology and is striking in both its impact and simplicity. If you are a business owner, team leader or simply curious about how to elevate your performance, you don’t want to miss this episode where we explore:

  • Jonathan’s “ah-ha” moment that shifted his focus from traditional psychological approaches to new, deeper and authentic, ways of working with clients.
  • Why “Thought Intelligence” and understanding how the mind really works, is vital to unlocking greater performance in business.
  • What mental “interference” is and how it creates trouble for anyone trying to be their best.
  • Going beyond the deluge of “instruction” available online and waking up an innate capacity to learn and perform well.
  • …and much more!
