We design, develop and deliver shorter keynote sessions and workshops focusing upon the main building blocks to high performance, as well as completely bespoke material for specific needs and objectives. These can be run either as part of a wider programme or indeed as a totally stand alone session. Here are just a few examples...
The Physiology of Goal Setting
Why do top achievers visualise goals and success? We all visualise, it’s just how we do it not whether we do. We will focus on how and why people can visualise goals in such a way that compliments the way our brain physically works. We will place the material into context using the book 'DayDreaming' as the main takeaway.
Trust – True Team Currency
Studies tell us that trust, in a specific form, is the foundation of team performance. Whilst we all know this on some level, understanding how and why is the key to developing it and the actions that come as a result. The same applies to relationships and even our ability to drive performance in ourselves. The most difficult person to lie to is ourselves – yet at the same time, we often find it difficult to be honest with ourselves too. Trust is the key.
The Role of Personality
Our personality traits will contribute to our behavioural style. There are many profiling tools that can help us to know those traits. The real key to this is to develop the understanding how different traits will drive behaviours, interaction, motivation and performance. Without having to run profiles on everyone around us we can develop our abilities to work with ourselves and others rather than against them.
Control the Controllables
The past informs our beliefs and the future will scare us or inspire us. Either way, it is our actions in the present that are the only controllable. How do we focus more upon what we can control and influence in order to ensure we learn from the past and shape the future? How can the smallest things we do make the biggest differences? Sometimes, the tiniest of actions can act as the ‘straw that broke the camel’s back’.
The Day of the Underdog
By definition the favourites are few and far between and the majority are therefore underdogs. What lessons can we learn from our own and others’ success against the odds. What blueprint can inspire us to overcome those odds and understand that, when we play our own game, we may not be the underdog we think we are.
Optimism for the Realist
Optimism and realism can conflict, and yet both are vital for improving performance as well as maintaining motivation. What does the empirical evidence in the case for optimism show us – even in the face of failure or difficulty? How can we be optimistic whilst being realistic?
