Energy Management for Corporate Athletes©.
Does an average day of work feel like you…
- … have had to push yourself extra hard for a minimum sense of accomplishment?
- … are under constant pressure to learn new tasks and immediately perform highly on them?
- … need to multitask which makes you feel busy, but ending your day without really having accomplished anything?
Perhaps your life feels like a semi-endless marathon run at full speed. You might even feel exhausted, unhappy, snappy and sleep deprived?
Given that the demands placed on us by the modern corporate world are high, how do you deal with all that pressure?
Your combined work and private life is asking for top-performance to make it all work at standards you and others define. Good is never enough. There is always a next level of peak performance. It almost sounds like athletism at a high, competitive level.
Let’s face it: you are a Corporate Athlete!The demands of our personal and professional lives constantly test the limits of mental and physical endurance.
What do sports athletes do better than we do? Top-performing sports athletes have team of experts to help them tightly manage every aspect of their life, all focused on staying in shape, preparing for moments of peak performance. Many of them approach performance like a science, where they balance the demands to perform with the needs of training, rest, nutrition, and mental health. So accurate are the results, that the difference between failure and success is often measured in milliseconds.
Do you see the parallels between the demands on their life and those on yours? When we accept that we are corporate athletes, we can begin to organise ourselves like athletes do. Likewise, if we are to mirror the success of the sports athlete, we need to apply their principles of success and take the first step in assessing the balance between your needs to remain happy and healthy and your professional performance goals. We call this your Personal Flight Envelope baseline assessment.
What is your the Personal Flight Envelope baseline assessment?
The Flight Envelope is a term borrowed from aviation that defines the parameters needed to keep an aircraft safely in flight, no matter how much external conditions change. Like an aircraft, sports athletes apply the principles of their Personal Flight Envelope to balance the demands of training, peak performance and their overall health. Similarly, you as a Corporate Athlete can learn to stay afloat, maintain your mental and physical health and deliver peak performance when needed, by staying within a clearly defined set of parameters of health and personal life choices.. The following 15-minute survey can help you assess how you have been able to manage the aspects of your life that are essential to your happiness and health.
After the survey, we would love to be in touch and see what you and your organisation can improve towards bringing the necessary balance needed for sustained high performance.
