Achieving peak performance

What really separates the truly world class performers from average performers?. Take a look around you at your friends, colleagues and family. The reality is that most of them, if not all of them are pretty mediocre at most things they do and very few will go on to become truly great at anything. Why is that? Why don’t they play the violin as well as Joshua Bell does? Why don’t they play cricket as well as A.B de Villiers? Why don’t they sell cars as well as Joe Girard or lead organisations as well as Jack Welch?

Throughout the history of our species, we have always been enthralled at the tales of individuals with great natural talent. At the recent Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, we marveled at the strength, skill, endurance, speed and agility of the athletes. We are inspired and in awe of the musical and artistic geniuses around us. If you consider greatness in any field of endeavour, it has always been associated with a “divine spark” of some sort, a gift from the Gods. Throughout time, we have been obsessed with explaining why some people succeed and others don’t. What is that distinguishing factor?. Is it nature or nurture – genetics or environment. Decades of research has been conducted in this area and the evidence points to the following two facts:

• The correlation between IQ and exceptional performance is rather frail in many areas, including chess, music and academia.
• “Natural talent” or ability from an early age is no indication of later exceptional performance.

So, what makes the difference then? Why is it that so many of us can spend years in our industry and never improve? This presentation will equip you with the attitudes, knowledge and practical tools to start the journey toward peak performance, whatever your chosen field.

Why is leadership so important ? At no time in the history of the world has change taken place at a more accelerated rate than what we are currently experiencing. The world is being shaped and influenced by industries that in the not too distant past never even existed and industries that previously dominated have become all but redundant. Research has shown that the likelihood that an industry leader will lose its top position within five years has doubled since 1972. Despite the fact that we live in a vastly different world we still cling onto the rule books of the past. Organizations still operate from an Industrial age mindset and our education systems globally are still largely geared to provide solutions and prepare learners for a world gone by. If we are going to thrive in the new economy, we cannot operate from an outdated “mind map”.

If we listen to the voices of individuals, there is an increasing sense of frustration and discouragement. People are feeling as though they are micromanaged and their creative energies stifled. There is a feeling of emptiness and a lack of meaning. Many individuals feel undervalued and underutilized and are yearning for a feeling of significance in the world. Despite all the remarkable progress we have made in technology, product innovation and global markets, the majority of individuals out there are not thriving in the organisations that they are part of. They are not fulfilled and lack passion. They are not entirely clear about where they or their organisation is headed or what its highest priorities are and don’t feel that they have much control either in changing anything. Today’s world is fantastically complex and requires all of a leaders capacity, and the shared capacity of the team to stay competitive and effective.

This presentation is about shifting our leadership paradigms to create the kind of culture that drives exceptional performance.

The power of influence

If you want to increase sales, stop selling, rather get people to buy. What sets the world’s top sales influencers apart from the rest of us? Their business is to make us comply and their livelihoods depend on it. Those who do not know how to influence soon fall away, while master influencers stay and flourish. This presentation looks at the psychological drivers and principles of influence and how we can use them to improve sales. Designed for sales professionals that want to improve their sales results, this insightful presentation will provide delegates with the attitudes, tools and knowledge to become master influencers.
