The Corporate Athlete Advantage demonstrates what can happen when leaders adopt a high-performance training model that completely embraces the reality that workers are fully integrated, multi-dimensional energy systems. It explores the implications and ramifications for establishing energy as the sine qua non currency of high performance. In addition, the book analyzes the unique and practical, science-based solutions that the Human Performance Institute’s corporate athlete model brings to problems of employee engagement, escalating employee health-care costs, employee safety concerns, turnover, work/life balance issues and great-place-to-work initiatives.
The Human Performance Institute is spawning nothing short of a corporate cultural revolution – a revolution that is sorely needed in an age of radical competitiveness and skyrocketing healthcare costs. The war for talent now isn’t just to hire the best; it is to ensure your best people get better professionally as well as personally in all dimensions – physical, emotional, mental, spiritual.
Corporate athletes must handle pressure at work, perform on demand regardless of circumstances, access their talent and skills when they need them most, manage their time efficiently, and set realistic goals and expectations for themselves. In short, they must be on at all times – no excuses! It is no stretch, then, to see the “non-athlete” from the high-stress world of business, medicine and law enforcement as the “ultimate athlete.” The real question is whether they are training like one!
