High performance and leadership require a scientific approach. And as with all aspects of science, the final chapter is never written. We stay on top of all the latest research that you don’t have to.
Old school leadership techniques are no longer enough. Leaders firstly need to lead by example. No one wants to report to a leader who is on the verge of burnout and can barely take care of themselves. If you want to attract a high performance team, you need to exhibit high performance characteristics.
In addition, we find many leaders are already in high performance mode but can’t understand why the team “can’t keep up” or “be just like me”. Humans are built differently and therefore the way one person operates won’t be the same as the way another person operates to achieve high performance levels.
So as a leader it is important to know how to coach others to your high level of sustained performance, but in ways which work for them and not necessarily for you.Read more
The one thing about making change is that if it’s not done correctly, it can seem like it takes a lot more effort to make the change relative to the benefit you get from actually having made the change.
This is counter to the concept of true high performance where we focus on getting your performance up with your effort levels down.
Since everyone is different, there is no one-size fits all approach to high performance. Therefore, we use a coach-consulting model. We consult with you to diagnose where your biggest energy drains or performance inhibitors are and then we go into a coaching space to coach you through making the necessary changes.
We deal with the root of the issue, not just the symptom. We start with the smallest changes possible to help you achieve the biggest results and then tweak around the edges for long term gain.Read more
These days, we have so much more scientific research on how the brain and body function and how we can use it for optimal performance with less effort. We are constantly seeing more research being done in this space.
Broadly speaking, in order to increase your performance you need to increase your energy. Our approach helps you to increase energy on a sustained basis by focusing on three areas…….
Mental – Using the latest positive psychology and sport psychology techniques to ensure you and your team are taking ownership of your high performance mindset, we identify the right stress levels to perform.
Neural – An understanding of neuroscience can really help you to increase your productivity on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis. Measuring your personal pace and knowing how to manage it is also key to increasing your productivity.
Physical – Research has shown amazing links between how we look after ourselves physically and our productivity, performance, creativity, strategic thinking, profitability and the list goes on. If you think you can achieve your highest sustained performance levels without focusing on your physical being, you are leaving performance on the table.Read more
“Work smarter not harder” is what we hear “leaders” say to their team. Unfortunately many leaders are not aware of the latest high performance techniques to help coach their teams to be able to work smarter not harder.
Technology now allows us to be more flexible with our working styles, but as most people haven’t grown up with these ideas, many people are unaware of the latest high performance techniques to capitalise on this.
With demands on people to achieve more rising significantly, we are now often expected to be “on” for many more hours than the previous norm. Globalisation of business means it’s now even easier to work with other countries, but we still have time zone issues to contend with.
These and many more demands on life with family and friends outside of work are all leading to people feeling more overwhelmed and over-stressed than ever before. This is taking a toll on people’s health and levels of productivity.
Next Evolution Performance helps you to deal with all of these issues to perform better with less effort.Read more
