Marilyn King on Envisioning the Gold: An Olympian's Challenge to Business Leaders (video)

February 4, 2011

What—and how—you think determines your ability to reach your personal potential and the untapped potential of your organization. Marilyn King is a two-time Olympian in the grueling five-event Pentathlon (Munich, 1972 & Montreal, 1976). An automobile accident in 1979 rendered her unable to train physically for her third Olympic Team. Using only mental training techniques she placed second at the Olympic trials for the 1980 Moscow Games.


Marilyn King’s techniques have been incorporated by businesses seeking to empower employees, embrace change, and provide global leadership. Marilyn King’s broadcast on ‘Envisioning the Gold: An Olympian’s Challenge to Business Leaders’ is part of our Women in Leadership Collection. Learn more.
