We have heard of sportsmen and musicians being in their “zone” every now and then. This is when their creative energies are at their peak. This is when they perform to such levels that it exceeds their own expectations or capabilities. In other words, this is the peak performance.
How does one reach this zone? Is it possible only for the people with special talent, or is it something you and I too can achieve? Is it a process or a kind of creative paroxysm?
The HeartMath Center finding
A research and training center near Silicon Valley, called HeartMath, has developed a model of tools and technology with which people at any level of their respective organizations can transition to a higher level of success, performance, and well-being.
Developed with valuable inputs in the form of work that is tried and polished through the Stanford Business School, this is a program using whose key principles and scientific research one can augment one’s poise, inner strength, buoyancy, and overall performance. That this model is helpful in inculcating the many critical skills needed to be resilient in the face of rapid change and uncertainty is something even experts agree upon.
A webinar from TrainHR, a leading provider of professional trainings for the human resources industry, will organize a webinar at which the idea of peak performance and the ways of evoking one’s inner strengths to get there will be explained. Bruce Cryer, who is Global Director, HeartMath HealthCare, founding director of HeartMathUK and HeartMath South Africa, and co-founder of What Makes Your Heart Sing, will be the speaker at this webinar.
To gain a thorough understanding of the concept of peak performance and derive its benefits for your organization, please register for this webinar by visiting http://www.trainhr.com/control/w_product/~product_id=701608?wordpress-SEO .
This webinar has been approved for 1 HR (General) recertification credit hours toward aPHR, PHR, PHRca, SPHR, GPHR, PHRi and SPHRi recertification through HR Certification Institute (HRCI).
The Coherent Performance model
A prime highlight of this presentation is the Coherent Performance model of peak performance. A very interesting aspect of the Coherent Performance model is the role of the heart in it. The HeartMath training center has demonstrated this. Equally importantly, it showed how order, stability and harmony among the various elements of the human system can result in a state by which it is possible for not just the accomplished or the highly motivated people, but common people as well, to reach their peak performance. The Coherent Performance model establishes a scientific basis for applying these principles for attaining peak performance.
This state of the mind, known as coherence, is a result of positive emotions that are induced by the mind. Compassion, inspiration and appreciation, as opposed to negative feelings like anger, anxiety and fear, combine to take people to that state of coherence. These are the same feelings that contribute to the person’s attainment of the state of peak performance.
Everything that goes into conditioning the mind for peak performance
Peak performance, or being in the zone, is something that can be attained by following the principles set out in the Coherent Performance model. This webinar will explore how to understand peak performance using the Coherent Performance model. It will show how to develop the elasticity, robustness, nimbleness and adaptability needed for developing this state of mind.
There are bountiful benefits that flow out of reaching this state of mind. We perform at our optimal levels at work, which is the prime factor for a good professional and personal life. We are at heightened levels of energy, capability and motivation as a result of being in this state of mind.
In the course of showing how the Coherent Performance model can be adapted to reach peak performance; Bruce will cover the following areas at this webinar:
- Peak Performance model
- Scientific basis for Coherence in neuroscience, neuroplasticity, and heart physiology
- The relationship between Peak Performance and Coherence
- Social and professional applications
- Case studies from business and military.
