The concept of performance is most frequently associated with cars. When your car is performing well it is more enjoyable to drive, it is more responsive and more energy efficient. Constant use, driving long distances over the holidays and sitting in heavy traffic day after day takes its toll on your car and performance gradually declines to the point that, if you don’t schedule a service or do some essential maintenance, your car will eventually breakdown.
That’s why every year, or after a set level of kilometers, we book our cars in for a check up. Expert mechanics complete a full inspection and safety report and make adjustments to ensure your car is back to its optimal functioning level.
Just like cars, human beings also have an optimal functioning level. After prolonged periods of constant pressure, our bodies and brain can also become sluggish, less responsive and run the risk of breaking down.
At the Performance Clinic we offer science based human performance check up’s. In a comprehensive assessment, one of our expert coaches will assess you in over 100 areas of human performance and provide a report that details where you are going well and where you can make some adjustments to achieve your optimal functioning level.
The Performance Clinic is a corporate coaching and training consultancy committed to helping you reach your performance potential. We partner with you to produce measureable benefits in both your work life and in your personal life.
Reaching your Performance Potential
Anyone can reach his or her performance potential. Quite simply, it is being the best that you can be.
This is important because when you are performing at your best you feel in control, your satisfaction with work increases and you enjoy life more. Not to mention additional work-related benefits associated with high performance including career progression, getting a pay rise or being recognised by your peers.
Let’s imagine for a moment that you are performing at your best. You are effectively managing stress, you feel healthy and energetic, you are productive at work, your employer values your contribution and you experience positive relationships. Things seem easier.
On the other hand when you are not performing at your best work can be tiresome, you get frustrated easily, relationships become strained, you feel more fatigued and there seems to be less fun in your life. Things seem tougher.
When asked to choose between the two operating levels, it’s a pretty simple choice isn’t it?
So, how do you know what your performance potential is and how do you achieve it?
The 4 Elements of Performance
At the Performance Clinic we have been working with sporting teams, Olympic athletes, CEO’s, leadership teams, self-traders and all manner of employees to understand what makes people great.
We have discovered that in any given situation, regardless of your role, the industry you work in, your marital status, your sex, or your age – there are behaviours that contribute to high performance and behaviours that interfere with your performance potential. We call these behaviours “performance triggers” and have categorised them into 4 elements.
Psychology – the way you think
The psychology element of performance provides you with the skills and techniques to be in control of how you think, feel and behave. It provides you with a better understanding of self and enhances your relationships with others.
It improves your satisfaction with life.
Productivity – the way you work
The productivity element provides you with the skills and systems to be more efficient by saving time, more effective by adding value and reduces stress and anxiety by clarifying purpose.
It makes work easier.
Recovery – the way you balance stress
The recovery element provides you with the skills and technology to help you replenish energy levels so you have the capacity to deal with periods of high stress.
It keeps performance consistent.
Physiology – the way you eat and move
The physiology element provides you with the knowledge and skills to improve physical fitness, energy levels, concentration and mood.
It makes you feel good.
Using these 4 elements as the foundation of great performance we applied scientific research and measurement tools to develop our comprehensive Performance Profile Assessment.
