the stats aren't good: 87% OF CREATIVE LEADERS cite chronic levels of STRESS, ANXIETY, ANGER, FRUSTRATION, GUILT, ISOLATION AND DENTED SELF-CONFIDENCE AS DAILY EMOTIONAL STATES. 74% have BEEN BURNT OUT AND 7% SAY "NOT YET"
SO as the Pressure continues to rise as resources continue to dwindle, HOW DO YOU excel at THE JOB YOU LOVE WITHOUT IT BREAKING YOU, YOUR TEAM OR YOUR MARRIAGE?
For decades, athletes have harnessed the power of performance psychology to reach their full potential, smash through plateaus and dominate their competition. And in the corporate world executive coaching is as commonplace as super-cars and million dollar bonuses.
And the reason is simple. A properly trained and maintained mind can mean the difference between burning bright and burning out.
So in a pressure-cooker environment like ours, where our state of mind and sharpness of thinking are the most valuable things we posses, isn't it time we stopped generating high performance like it's 1991, and revolutionalized the way we compete in the high-stake game of creativity?
TALKS & WORKSHOPS
AS SEEN ON AND AT
FUSING THE LATEST FINDINGS IN NEUROSCIENCE & performance psychology with 20 years of creative industry experience, I HELP my clients develop THE MENTAL & EMOTIONAL MUSCLE NEEDED TO DEVELOP SUSTAINABLE HIGH PERFORMANCE & a creative Life THEY NEVER WANT TO ESCAPE FROM
If there's one thing I've learnt from growing up in some of the best creative departments in the world, it's that the industry moves far too fast these days for us to generate high performance like we used to.
In our always-on, "needed it yesterday" world, the pressure to be brilliant at a moments notice no longer arrives in intense but well-spaced waves, it comes along as one massive, unrelenting tsunami.
And if you don't have the emotionally robust mindset you need to suft these waters, a perpetual state of high alert hijacks your confidence and enthusiasm and puts you in a reactive, fear-driven state of mind that's more focused on putting out fires and avoiding the axe, than taming the ocean and bursting through plateaus.
Which is why the archaic, guilt-fueled way of birthing brilliance is having a catastrophic effect on the hearts, minds and energy reserves of our most talented teams and leaders.
But it doesn't have to be like this. Or even close to it...
Science and psychology has given us the tools, techniques and strategies we can use right now to accelerate performance by working psychologically smarter, not harder. So is sacrificing our emotional and mental health and wellbeing in the relentless pursuit of creative briliance really the best way to achieve it?
SUSTAINABLE HIGH PERFORMANCE™ COACHING REMOVES the subconscious handbrakes and self-defeating bullshit that is Keeping you stuck in emotional headlocks you can't get out of.
If you've ever failed to silence the heckler in you head, or lost the battle against stress, anxiety or overwhelm, the reason is simple: you've been trying to reason with the wrong part of your brain.
Despite what your conscious mind thinks, it doesn't run the show. Modern science has shown us that 95% of your life is run by your unconscious mind. And because it's a million times more powerful than its conscious cousin, willpower will have next to no effect on it.
Which means that the mental and emotional things that block you, hold you back, or cause you personal and professional pain and suffering, are a result of automatic unconscious programs which run without your conscious knowledge or control.
Yet most coaches, consultants and trainers still rely on conscious processes like questioning, analysis and task setting to help their clients. Which is like asking someone in the last carriage of a freight train to steer it in an entirely new direction when it's speeding down the tracks at 100pmh. It won't work!
So when I work with teams and individuals, I work from their unconscious mind out, to make sure that the changes we make will hold firm when the shit hits the fan and the autopilot kicks in.
SUSTAINABLE HIGH PERFORMANCE™ COACHING never squashes right-brained creative thinkers into boxes designed for left-brained corporate thinkers. Here's why...
I've spent 20 years working in the same high-stake creative industry as you. So I know from firsthand experience what kind of shit gets thrown at you on a daily basis. And from thousands of hours of hands-on coaching, I know what it takes to prevent it sticking.
I'm not bound by the shackles of a rigid one-size-fits-all coaching script, template or silly little GROW Model. You are my brief, my inspiration and it's your story that dictates the way we work together. But that doesn't mean I'll buy into your story. I won't. I'll tell it how it is. I won't sugarcoat it. I'll point out the blindspots you can't see and never let your fears hold you back.
I won't tinker around the edges of your life making incremental changes on a superficial level. Together we'll dig deeper than you've ever dug before to launch you higher than you've ever soared before. Because these letters after my name BA Hons, DCH, DHP, MNLP, Adv. EFT, MRP, mean I'm trained to handle all manner of psychological peaks, troughs and gridlocks you're dealing with.
