S2E12: Curt Harnett, Former Olympian

April 17, 2018  

It is our role at The CLiP to find a diverse selection of guests that lead or influence in various sectors of our communities. Curt Harnett, our guest in today’s episode, offers both.  You might know him as a former Olympian, known for his cycling sprinting, or from his quintessentially 80’s hair shampoo commercial. You might have also heard his name or witnessed his leadership role as the Chef de Mission for the Canadian teams at the Rio Olympics and the Pan AM games in Toronto.  In our discussion, we talk a good deal about rebranding. One day you are an athlete, the next day you are not. How do you pick up your tool box of skills and move to the next thing, what ever that might be? This discussion is relevant way beyond athletics – all of us find ourselves in constant states of change. How do you pick yourself up to re-purpose when you need to? How do you leverage the good days when you have them? How do you harness the power of failure as you move forward?  Enjoy this and much more during this episode of The CLiP.
