Turn Stress to Your Advantage for
Peak Performance Consulting

An Evening With Gunilla Ekberg 

Today’s consulting world is fiercely competitive, mentally and physically demanding, and requires constant training. To deal successfully with new challenges and transitions, we need to manage stress - which can both help and harm us - and to "own” our decisions.

This program steps into the expanding field of "peak performance training”: the practical application of a growing body of research launched by NASA in the 1960s. Techniques and tools from this expanding field are now routinely used by NASA in areas like pilot selection and training, and by a widening spectrum of others. As the research continues and broadens, so do its implications for aging, cognitive functioning and other areas that affect people in demanding, high-energy professions like ours. This is a field we'll all hear more about and we’ll benefit greatly if we become early adopters. 

Our interactive February program focuses on an integrated approach and some proven techniques for handling stress as an interconnected mind/body phenomenon. And of course, it gives us another opportunity to convene and network. The FitAdvantage model to be presented is an example of peak performance training geared toward executives for whom time is constrained and high-quality results are imperative. The program develops individually tailored, results-oriented programs which include focused consultation and wellness coaching. You’ll leave this fascinating, highly practical presentation with: 
• Knowledge of proven results from the growing field of peak performance
• Insight into how exercise trains both the physiological and mental response to stress
• Clarity about "choice” and ways to transform desire into a personal action plan
• Practical tools and techniques to personally reach higher levels of performance.
