Accessing Intuition and Creativity for Innovation

Overview:

Intuition is a heightened sense of awareness that transcends the rational mind. It is an intelligence that is integral to the creative process.

Leaders that develop this form of intelligence will experience higher levels of productivity, minimize stress and will bring greater levels of creativity to what they do. Given the contextual, relational and holistic properties of this type of intelligence, intuitive leaders will be better equipped to make decisions that will benefit the team and the organisation as a whole.

As a result, leaders that expand their intuitive faculties will thrive at innovation, enhance relationships with co-workers, provide greater insights, and make significant contributions to the business.

Achieving the Ideal Performance State

Sustaining Peak Performance

Overview:

Research shows that high performance under pressure does not come down to merely cognitive capacity, material rewards, the right culture or management by objectives. A successful approach to sustain performance and avoid burnout must consider the person as a whole.

Each of these four levels profoundly influences the others and failure to address any one of them compromises performance.

The Achieve your Ideal Performance State programme has been designed to provide the knowledge, guidance and support to equip participants with the tools necessary to improve their self-management skills in order to increase their resilience and their capacity to deliver results under pressure.

By learning how to increase their human capacity at all levels, participants will bring their talents and skills to full ignition, attaining the ideal performance state over time.

Outcomes:

Grounded in the sciences of performance psychology, exercise physiology, nutrition and mindfulness, this programme will help participants to:

  • Improve performance and increase productivity in all aspects of their business and personal life.
  • Acquire skills required for effective energy management in order to maximise capacity and prevent burnout.
  • Develop greater resilience in the face of non-stop stress and ever-changing business environments.
  • Learn practices that will support enhanced performance and replace non-effective habits.
