About THE WORKSHOP
"Cars that drive themselves, machines that read X-rays, and algorithms that respond to customer-service inquiries are all manifestations of powerful new forms of automation. Half the activities people are paid to do globally could theoretically be automated using currently demonstrated technologies. Automation and AI will lift productivity and economic growth, but 30% of us are going to have to do something different because the skills are going to change so much by 2030." -- McKinsey Institute, November 2018.
Peak performance everyday is based on Deep Flow, which is the ability to master hard things quickly and the ability to produce at an elite level. That said, a 2012 McKinsey study found that the average knowledge worker now spends more than 60% of the workweek engaged in electronic communication, with close to 30% of a worker's time dedicated to reading and answering email alone. Non-cognitively demanding, logistical-style tasks, which are often performed while distracted, seem to constitute a large part of the day. These efforts tend not to create much new value in the world and are easy to replicate.
Deep Flow is becoming increasingly rare at exactly the same time it is becoming increasingly valuable. Only those who cultivate this skill and make it the core of their working life will thrive.
This workshop uncovers the principles of Neuroscience that govern Peak Performance, emphasizes the schemas used by experts, and highlights micro-practices based on the schema.
Objective & outcome: This 4 hour session provides the participants a way to:
Uncover the Neuroscience behind Peak Performance
Explore the Deep Flow framework for invoking peak performance at will
Assess and measure your Deep Flow state
Generate a customized set of actions based on well-researched micro practices
