Dr Cath Bishop is an Olympic medalist rower, former diplomat and now works as a business coach and speaker and teaches on Executive Education programmes at the Judge Business School, Cambridge University. Her book ‘The Long Win: The Search for a Better Way to Succeed’ looks at our obsession with the cultural phenomenon of winning and how we might find a better way to drive success. Tracing the obsession with winning through education, business, sport and politics, Cath identifies how a narrow, short-term view of winning – crossing the line first in a race, hitting your annual business targets, getting A grades at school – is holding us back engaging staff meaningfully with their work.
The Long Win proposes a new approach to success based on the Three Cs: Clarity, Constant Learning and Connection. Focusing on clarifying what matters, our longer-term purpose and motivations, recognizing learning and personal growth over external outcomes, and prioritizing human connections so that we collaborate with others rather than compete against them.
