The Pulse of High Performance: Life is a Series of Sprints, not a Marathon

The conventional wisdom is that the best way to manage the endless demands of our work lives is to assume the mentality of a marathoner, conserving energy in order to stay the course over many years without burning out. In fact, sustained high performance requires the mentality of a sprinter--fully engaging for clearly defined periods of time and then strategically recovering. To live like a sprinter is to break work down into a series of manageable intervals--fully engaging and then fully recovering. This principle is called oscillation and it creates a powerful pulse that drives greater efficiency, improved health and happiness, and sustained high performance.

The Fully Engaged Leader

The most important dynamic of leadership is the ability to ignite, focus, and sustain people’s energy in the service of a mission. The fully engaged leader must be physically energized, emotionally connected, mentally focused and spiritually aligned with the corporate mission. Each of these capacities are necessary, none is sufficient by itself. The fully engaged leader learns to draw on all four sources of energy and to consciously cultivate them throughout their organizations. Doing so requires leaders committed not just to training themselves in the same systematic way that elite athletes do, but also in building an organization that values and provides time for individuals to regularly train to build their capacity.

Fully Engaged--Managing Energy to Maximize Performance

Nearly 75 percent of American workers are disengaged, according to data collected by the Gallup Organization. To be fully engaged, one must be physically energized, emotionally connected, mentally focused and spiritually aligned with the mission of their organization. Drawing on 25 years of experience working with world-class athletes and other elite performers, this presentation describes a unique science-based system for driving full engagement, grounded in the management of personal energy and the development of highly precise performance rituals.
