Peak Performance Model:
A new paradigm in Managing and Leading
When you think of Peak Performance, you may think only of an elite athlete or world performer. This is not the case. It applies to ‘superior functioning’ in whatever you may do.
Traditionally, peak performance psychology attends to three areas; 1, personality and mental factors, 2, practice and 3, application of behavioural and mental skills. This model is simple and yet a highly effect way to cover all three aspects of peak performance. Its simplicity makes it easy to learn and apply in life and business.
After conducting thousands of coaching sessions around the world, having modelled masters in their field and spending decades studying human potential, we have discovered that everyone’s performance depends upon three key things; patterns, stories and questions.
There are four phases to the ImagineMORE Peak Performance Program:
1. Self-paced pre-training learning modules with Audio recordings
2.Four day face-to-face training (click link for Peak Performance Training)
3. Three month post-training monthly Master classes
4. Six month post-training individualise direct contact coaching
Our patterns, little things repeated often, have a powerful impact on how we’ve shaped our life and the results we get. This is the number one Key to Peak Performance. To illustrate, think of many tiny threads, which alone are weak and almost invisible, but when woven together create a strong fabric.
Imagine this…if you were going increase your cardiovascular fitness, which would be more effective; exercise for a whole day once or twice a year, or exercising for 10 mins every day?
There are 3 aspects to our patterns that are covered in Peak Performance training: Mental, Physical and Core Self.
In the ImagineMORE Peak Performance Program you learn how to;
nourish, energise, strengthen and craft all three aspectsof yourself, which will lead to strong and consistent peak performance,
so you’ll get great results often.
The stories we tell ourselvesabout ourselves and about events powerfully shape our reality. No matter what you tell yourself, you are always right. As Henry Ford said,
“If you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right”.
The ‘placebo effect’ demonstrates how powerful our thinking is. In one study, during a 40-km cycling time trial, one group were told they were given power drinks when they didn’t. They had better performance than the group who really did get the power drinks and weren’t told (Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, 2000, 32(9):1642-1647). You know how crazy is that?
What you believe is that powerful… Our thinking creates our stories. Our stories become our beliefs.
Our beliefs can literally change what happens.
There are three key ways we craft out stories; what we presuppose to be true, our interpretation of events and concept of ourselves. These are all covered in the individualised learning program and the training.
Questions are both useful and dangerous. The power of a question is that it points our mind in a certain direction. Whatever we ask, there our thinking will go AND our mind won’t challenge the wisdom of our direction or doubt its ability to answer.
There is no question too big, too small, too tricky, too anything that it won’t point our mind in that direction. Our mind simply goes and finds the evidence to match our question.
At times the question sets the mind on an adventurous search that can last years and other times the answer is readily available. None-the-less, the evidence your mind presents to you to consider creates your current experience and therefore your reality.
