Do those who have achieved ‘perfection’ think about it differently?
In 1976, Nadia Comaneci became the first person to receive a Perfect 10. In 1984, Bart Conner would repeat the feat for Team USA. But with achievement comes perspective.
The two legendary gymnasts join you live. They will lead you in a conversation about how an athlete does not prepare for everything — but rather puts emphasis on preparing for anything. They will engage your team in a discussion about the definition of ‘perfection’ — and suggest it may be best understood as ‘agility and rapid adjustment’ — rather than an ideal state. Finally, the pair will discuss ‘success’ vs. ‘significance’ and help your team think about what mark it might want to leave on your company and customers.
A nine-time Olympic medalist (five individual Olympic gold medals), Nadia Comaneci is the first person to score a Perfect 10 in gymnastics. Nadia is credited with popularizing the sport of gymnastics around the globe and has been named one of most influential athletes of the 20th century. Nadia was known for her clean technique, innovative and difficult original skills, and her stoic, cool demeanor in competition.
A two-time Olympic medalist (two gold Olympic medals), Bart Conner is an inductee to the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame (1991), the USA Gymnastics Hall of Fame (1996), and the International Gymnastics Hall of Fame (1997). Bart was one of 461 athletes to receive a Congressional Gold Medal due to the U.S. boycott of the 1980 Olympic games.
