Patrick Sweeney is a journalist by training and his curiosity drove him to conduct extensive research into what makes people successful. As the President of Caliper, he consults with business leaders on hiring, executive development, team building, executive coaching and performance management. In his bestselling book, Succeed on Your Own Terms he shares mini biographies of highly successful people and describes the mental processes they’ve developed that contributed most to their success. For example, the biography of Mugsey Bogues, the shortest NBA player ever, didn't dwell on his height limitations . . . but rather on how his mind focused on what he had to do to gain the upper hand over his far taller opponents. In this short video interview, Patrick shares a fascinating a defining moment of how a holocaust survivor had a flash of insight that saved his life.
