How do you play at the top of your game without being a slave to your business, compromising your relationships or sacrificing your health and wellness?
How do you keep your team on track continuously giving their best?
The answer is by using the strategies in the High-Performance Triad
While both peak performance and High-Performance require endurance and training there is a distinct difference between the two. After every peak performance, we tend to experience a low or a drop which is often compared to a valley. On the other hand high–performance is a state you can sustain and maintain over an extended period of time.
That concept had become very apparent to me during my early days of competing in Latin ballroom. A beginner without any dance or competitive experience is generally put into an entry level called bronze. Dancers build their foundation by learning new skills through long rigorous training. The goals are to constantly perfect technique, improve performance and develop presence while gaining speed and endurance. The intention is to reach peak performance and show up at your best giving it your all during competition time. After the emotional high, the excitement, the adrenaline flow and the intense physical exertion comes the valley. The day after a competition is known as the “couch day”, used for rest and recovery since we literally can’t move… Over time we develop strength, better skills, endurance, muscle memory and we become High-Performers at the Bronze level. That’s when it’s time to move to the next level, the new normal is at Silver level and the process repeats itself again.
What does the High-Performance Triad have to offer in this process?
High-Performance Triad offers the ability to express your ultimate potential in business and in life on a consistent basis. It is the ability to constantly grow, achieve more and be more while still maintaining Dynamic Equilibrium without crashing and burning. While some people might call that balance, I believe that life has an ebb and flow. Balance signifies that there is no movement; on the other hand, Dynamic Equilibrium will allow more fluid changes in different areas of your life. At times you might need to invest more time and energy in one area of your life, scaling back on others. Once you complete the project or task, you circle back to the areas that may have been somewhat neglected.
