Book Rasmus Ankersen
- Success Kills: Rasmus Ankersen has studied the consequences of success: complacency, arrogance and resistance to change, and shows individuals and organizations how to navigate these pitfalls.
- “The High Performance Anthropologist” Ankersen has “lived” his research and trained with some of the best athletes on the planet, documenting the habits needed for world-class performance.
When complacency, arrogance and resistance to change become pervasive and unwanted by-products of successful individuals and organizations, who can they turn to? Rasmus Ankersen - entrepreneur, bestselling author, trusted advisor to businesses and athletes around the world and speaker on creating and sustaining high performance cultures.
Over the past few years, Ankersen has been hired to share his research on high performance cultures, speaking to global brands like LEGO, Google, Boston Consulting Group, IKEA, Rotman Business School, Nasdaq, Ernst & Young and many more.
A former football player, Ankersen, a.k.a. “The High Performance Anthropologist,” carved himself a unique niche in the worlds of coaching and performance improvement by living his research to the full; training with the world's fastest sprinters in Jamaica, playing football with the aspiring talents of the Brazilian favelas, which produce the most talented players on Earth, and following the female golfers of Korea to investigate how they have managed to overwhelm the international golfing world.
The author of several bestselling books, Rasmus Ankersen’s The Gold Mine Effect, examined the secrets of high performance, making him the only expert on the subject who has literally lived and trained with some of the best athletes on the planet. His latest book, Hunger in Paradise details the negative aspects of high achievement when complacency, arrogance and resistance to change, often follow as a shadow of success. Ankersen studied how top companies can stay successful, and create a sense of urgency or “hunger in paradise.”
Rasmus uses the knowledge he has gained from his research to show companies, organizations and teams how they too can assume the mental habits necessary for world-class performance. He takes down our fundamental ingrained beliefs and replaces them with winning strategies that have been proven to work in the real world.
Ankersen is also the Chairman of FC Midtjylland, champions of the Danish Football League, and holds the position of Co-Director of Football at the English club Brentford FC. Both are known as some of Europe’s most innovative football clubs, especially recognized for their use of big data to drive decision making.
"The business world owes Rasmus much gratitude for his facts based, in depth studies of what it truly takes to be, identify and build talent”
Jørgen Vig Knudstorp, CEO and President, The LEGO Group

"As our personal coach Rasmus has been a massive inspiration. Especially his methods and ideas about how to make process goals measurable, how to adjust the pressure level from within and how to move the limit for what we think is possible have done a major difference for us. Rasmus has made us understand what attitude and mental strength are really about."
