The New Rules for Sustaining High Performance
Intelligence and hard work are no longer enough to succeed in the modern workplace. Most companies and leaders are running 21st-century businesses with 20th-century workplace practices and programs. As demands rise and technology rules, we need new strategies that enable people to consistently be at their best.
The New Rules for Sustaining High Performance demonstrates how to further tap into your inner resources—the capacity we all have within us—to better fuel your performance, focus, productivity and engagement. Combining the prevalent needs of today’s business leaders with a research-based approach borrowing from advances in neurology, cognitive behavioural psychology and sports performance science, this keynote introduces practical ideas that are essential for creating sustainable, high-performance leaders and teams.
Achieving Breakthroughs in Performance
Successful leaders know when it’s time to just manage the status quo…and when it’s time to seek a breakthrough to reach the next level of performance and success.
This talk introduces the three pillars of a Breakthrough Performance – the State, the Story and the Strategy.
Of all the factors at play, there is one thing that determines our success and impact more than anything else: our State. When we are in an empowered, confident, energized state, we are more creative and determined. We make very different decisions and engage in a different quality of communication than when we are stressed, anxious or self-critical.
Our state influences the Story we tell ourselves about what is possible and what is not, what is needed and whether the effort will be worth the reward. Only when our State and Story are aligned will the Strategy be successfully and rapidly executed.
Achieving Breakthrough Performance gives you the knowledge, tools and skills to better manage the personal three pillars—especially in periods of high pressure and higher expectations. More than just ‘emotional intelligence,’ this talk provides a proven framework for self-awareness and resilience using scientifically-grounded facts. It will guide you through a step-by-step process to help you better manage your approach to performance in order to achieve breakthrough results.
