Divya Sethi, Head of Global Leadership and Learning (Corporate IT) at Intel, is conducting a workshop titled Neuroscience of Peak Performance on Saturday 20th July from 9 am to 1 pm at MyBoTree, Koramangala.
The workshop is about improving the efficiency of workflow and energy management using some simple brain training techniques while addressing the increased level of distraction caused by digital media.
It is hard to sustain mental and physical energy today when professionals face a tidal wave of 30,000 emails and other electronic communications per year and are interrupted once every 11 minutes. Each time a knowledge worker moves from one task to another e.g. reviewing a presentation to responding to an email or talking to someone, there is a stop/start process that goes on in the brain. Not only that, it takes 25 minutes to get back to the task at hand after the interruption. This fragmented state of attention depletes the ability to perform. In such a scenario, how can leaders perform at optimal levels, every day?
Peak Performance occurs in a state of Deep Flow. Leaders in a state of Deep Flow are 500% more productive, learn 230% faster but on average leaders spend less than 5% of their day in Deep Flow. How can leaders deliberately access Peak Performance?
Neuroscience of Peak Performance is a way to create the mental & physical capacity necessary to deliver results and drive more impact. Great athletes consciously manage their physical stamina and performance mindset to ensure they are at their best when they are actually performing. To sustain the intensity of the job, leaders need to train — just as elite athletes do. By following specific techniques, leaders can invoke their Peak Performance in a deliberate manner and, thereby, deliver 20% higher performance.
This talk on Neuroscience of Peak Performance provides an overview of the framework and well-researched micro-practices for leaders to generate a customized set of actions based on their own context and needs.
Top athletes, leaders, performers, artists all practice these techniques. This 4-hour workshop will enable each participant to walk away with a personal plan customized to help them adapt and make the best of these "Deep Flow" techniques in their daily lives.
Understanding the brain science that goes into creating peak performance is absolutely critical for any professional seeking to move beyond flashes of brilliance, to achieving true sustained success. Through conversations with leading professionals and experts in their respective fields and her own deep insights from her research, Divya Sethi brings more than a decade’s work on deciphering brain science to this workshop on “Neuroscience of Peak Performance”. - Anish Ramachandran
