We believe that the way we are currently working isn’t working. This is reflected in high levels of stress, a chronic lack of employee engagement and increasing levels of presenteeism.
We also believe that we have the solutions. Our philosophy is to utilise knowledge and insights from the disciplines of Neuroscience, Physiology and Psychology to enable peak performance and protect what is arguably your most valuable asset – your ‘psychological capital’.
We strongly believe that in order to be a peak performer, whatever your game, you must adopt rituals that integrate and optimise both the Body and the Brain. The Brain controls everything that the body does, but it is absolutley dependant on the health of the body for optimal functioning.
Knowledge is necessary, but not sufficient.
Knowing what to do is just the first step. For successful long-term behaviour change, certain Brain regions and networks must become engaged. The Body-Brain Performance Institute uses proven tools to help facilitate selfdetermination, a pre-requisite for long-term change.
We work directly with senior executives through our signature programs and have scalable solutions for the entire workforce. We also offer Body-Brain Performance Coaching for your most valuable assets.
The Body-Brain Performance Institute focuses on Executive Performance and offers a range of solutions to enable your organisation to maximise its key Psychological Capital.
The Body-Brain Performance Institute currently works with the Executive Teams of large multi-national companies, such as SAP, Google, Accenture, Euronet and NAB, in Australia, Singapore and New Zealand.
We take the latest research from the disciplines of Neuroscience, Physiology and Psychology and blend it with the lessons of the Armed Forces and Elite Athletes to create programs that are both easy to follow and powerfully effective.
