Leadership and Loyalty™


Olympian Steven Benedict: Running With The Big Dogs [audio]

Have you considered the question: Do we succeed because of privilege or adversity? 

Leadership can seem to be about winning, but in truth it’s about so much more…It’s about training, mental, emotional prep. It’s about mindset, it’s also about pacing and supporting the team that you are part of… So how can you possibly balance all these things and win? Particularly when the odds are stacked against you? 

Well stay tuned because you are about to find out… 

George Sheehan wrote, “Why race? The need to be tested, perhaps; the need to take risks; and the chance to be number one.

Our Guest today has encountered every reason to NOT race. From abandonment, to abuse, family deceptions, untimely deaths, drugs and alcohol.

Olympian-Professional Athlete Steven Benedict was confronted with more obstacles before the age of 28 than majority of people face in a lifetime. Despite the hardships, Steven applied what he learned on the track to remain focused on the finish line. 

His rules for running the race translate to almost every industry, person and circumstance and his story is a reminder to all who hear it, that so long as you still have breathe in your lungs, your race can still be won. Featured in 50 national and international magazines such as Train, ESPN Magazine, Mens Fitness, Mens Health and Fitness RX.
