Peak Performance under pressure

Peak Performance, or the ‘flow state’, is a sense of fluidity between body and mind when we are totally absorbed and focused upon an activity. It is a satisfying (and productive!) dance between being completely energised and completely relaxed in relation to a task. It’s a feeling that we all know and, if we’re honest, a feeling that most of us struggle to access as often as we’d like to; and it’s even harder to slip into when the pressure is on….

Topics addressed

This session looks at how we can access Peak Performance when the clock is ticking, the client is waiting and the general working environment is not quite as calm and peaceful as we might perhaps like. We’ll dig into the theory of the ‘flow state’, look at some practitioners who have demonstrably found it when the pressure is on, and leave you with a far clearer the process to observe the next time pressure is escalating but the deadline is staying still.

This calmer, more reflective session works superbly in isolation, but even better in conjunction with the other more active and dynamic offerings through the Colander Online Academy.

Who this session is for

This is an in-house session that is designed for a group of delegates from the same organisation. It will help build relationships across a team while also enabling individuals to develop and hone their own powers of concentration.

Format

We know that long training sessions do not work well online, so we have repackaged our expertise into a series of modules that last 90-minute to 2-hours. We believe this makes the best of the online format and ensures that delegates get the most from their time with us.

We like using Zoom but we are happy to use other platforms if preferred by our clients.

We recommend that the number of delegates is limited to between eight and 12. This is so that we can engage with everyone and pick up questions, building on individual and team ideas as each session progresses.

This session is one of the training modules offered through the Colander Online Academy. Each module has been designed to stand alone, but the short format limits the amount of ground that can be covered in each. This means that most clients will require a suite of modules to deliver a rounded training experience, particularly around the wider issues of good leadership and communication.

Coaching

Our trainers are both willing and able to support delegates with individual coaching, if people think it would be a helpful follow up to any of the online training sessions.

Our experience of delivering online training has shown that follow up sessions with the trainer - either individually or in pairs, face-to-face or online - have been incredibly useful, helping delegates to embed the learning from the group sessions and relate it to their real life experiences of leading teams.

If appropriate we would be delighted to discuss this with our training clients.

CPD

If required, CPD Certificates can be issued to all attendees.
