Mind Set Game #20: Psychology of Mindfulness with John Amaechi

In today’s episode of the Mind Set Game podcast, I sat down with John Amaechi.

John is a psychologist and New York Times best-selling author. In the US and Europe, he works with aspiring and already high-achieving individuals as well as medium to large-sized organisations looking for an edge.  He is often retained to help identify and implement ways to increase productivity by improving communication & leadership skills, organisational culture and climate – often where mainstream options have failed.

He’s proven himself adept at achieving the seemingly impossible by scaling to the heights of the best basketball league in the world, the National Basketball Association, after starting the game aged 17. From first picking up a ball, he went to a ‘starting five’ position on the Cleveland Cavaliers in just six years.  His personal drive, perseverance and planning are augmented by his post-retirement research and education in psychology.
