Climbing to the top of the corporate world and staying on top is as demanding and challenging as an elite athlete’s quest to be the best at their respective sport. Similarly, competitive resilience must be honed by physically, mentally and emotionally preparing for the inevitable challenges and stressors inherent in being a leader of any organization.
Deadlines loom, conflicts arise, deals fall through, clients have bad days, staff disagree, communication mishaps occur and with new opportunities come new pressures. All the while, you have to stay focused on the ultimate vision, primary objectives, client and employee satisfaction, the bottom line and the primary tasks at hand. And lest we forget, you also have a private life you must manage because loved ones rely on you and need your best, too.
There is no time to falter or fall apart. Others require your strength and demand your leadership especially during trying times. “Deconditioned” leaders crumble under such pressures and adopt maladaptive habits leading to decompensation and eventual burn out while peak performance leaders thrive by not only expecting these type of challenges, but by preparing for and embracing them as a necessary process of personal and organizational growth. Stress, then becomes a performance cue to proactively assess the situation, gather requisite information, process key information without emotional overload or psychological noise and take decisive action based on sound information and effective perspective.
Consequently, I’ve developed this program with the “corporate athlete” in mind. Drawing from my knowledge base and wealth of experience as a Sport/Performance Psychology Consultant and Health and Fitness Professional I’ve combined the stress of exercise with strategically timed challenge drills to make for stimulating sessions to facilitate introspection and personal growth.
This program is also designed to address and improve all facets of peak performance including but not limited to peak fitness, sound nutrition, planned stress management, quality rest, nurturing key meaningful relationships, cultivating other untapped talents, spiritual growth and altruistic contribution, just to name a few.
