This month Dave is primarily discussing peak performing leaders, one of the most popular of the series.
Crestcom has a Performance Optimization model which looks at four key areas which leaders need to focus some time and attention. Those areas are: Identification of Purpose, Physical Health, Emotional Health, and Mindfulness.
Leadership responsibilities subject managers to higher levels of stress, and more challenging mental activities than employees who work as individual contributors. Because of this, leaders generally require more energy, and need to have greater focus in order to be successful. Each of the four areas identified in Crestcom’s Performance Optimization model are opportunities for your leaders to better prepare themselves for the challenges of their positions.
Identification of Purpose has leaders writing down “why” they chose to do what they do. When times are tough, it’s good to have a solid reminder of the greater purpose that comes with leading others. Physical health may be obvious, but many leaders don’t do enough in this area, which includes exercise, diet and sleep. Emotional Health includes an awareness of the stress curve, and understanding stress reduction techniques for both the leader and their team members. And finally, Mindfulness is reducing the clutter that can fill our brains from social media, an “always on” communication mode, and the plethora of news and information that bombards us on a daily basis. Effective leaders know how bring focus to their work, and engage others with an open mind and attentive listening.
Listen to Jeffrey and Dave discuss Performance Optimization to learn more about the 4 key areas, and what you can do for yourself to be the most effective leader you can be.
