Art Turock is a practitioner in two fields—business and sports. As a masters track sprinter and pentathlete since 2006, Art Turock’s times for the 100 and 200 meter dash qualified for the National Senior Games (the equivalent of a national Olympic qualifying meet for age 50+ athletes), and earned an All-American standard time in the 60 meter indoor dash. In 2011, his pentathlon score ranked #4 in the United States for his competitive age group.
Over a period of three years, Art spent a total of eleven days immersed in fantasy camps and attending team practices to study the “Win Forever” coaching philosophy of Pete Carroll and the USC Trojans. By learning world-class talent development methods in sports, Art conceived the Learning-While-Working Process for building leadership capabilities while real work is getting done.
