In the new economy, there is a new definition of performance. We need to consistently do our best thinking and perform at our best mentally. We can't keep doing the same things we did last year and expect to be more successful. But how do we continually operate at full intensity without burning out? This session shows how we are actually wired NOT to do our best work in today's environment and how our current way of working is at odds with what the science tells us would be most effective.
Through some entertaining thought experiments and fascinating presentation of performance science, participants will leave with strategies to get into the Performance Zone more often and stay there for longer - helping them do their best thinking and perform at their full potential every hour of every day
Work life balance is not a right. It’s not a compromise and it’s not a sign of mediocrity. Work-life balance is essential to performing at our best in and out of the office. Productivity studies in Australia show that the most productive people aren’t the ones who are first in the office and leave late at night. People with work-life-balance are up to 2.5 times more productive than those without.
In this presentation, you’ll find out why. And when work-life-balance is done right, you not only get improved relationships, but you get better at your job.
Tony Wilson shows us why work-life-balance is so important, but so elusive to the average high performing worker. He will show you how we are hardwired to pay attention to work over just about anything else, and what we can do to start to switch this balance. From this workshop, your people will develop strategies to work with more productivity and focus, and take those same performance skills and apply them to their life outside the office as well.
Sales can be hard. Riding the roller coaster of wins, setbacks, and everything in between. But what if we knew a little more about ourselves and the science of high performance? What if we could change some simple things to stay motivated, on task and focussed on our key behaviours, while managing our emotions so that we’re always in the zone? In this keynote, Tony Wilson takes the science of high performance, and shows us how to use it to perform at our best in the 21st Century sales environment. You will get an understanding the high-performance zones, realise that we are hardwired NOT to perform at our best in today’s workplace and what we need to do about it. You will also develop strategies for beating procrastination and other unproductive, low motivation behaviours, while being able to manage emotions and stress so you can perform at your best more often and for longer.
What are the limits of human performance? We keep pushing the boundaries of so many things, what if we knew how to push the boundaries of our own mindset, productivity and motivation? Technology and research is showing us all sorts of conditions and tools to help us think better, do more, change our behaviours and alter our mindset. Performance science is showing us how to recreate those moments when we are in our peak performance state, so that we can operate at that level more often.
In this talk, Tony Wilson takes some of these concepts to the extreme, hacking our physiology to improve our brain function, flow state, attention and self-control and showing us what Silicone Valley geniuses, Navy Seals and Elite Athletes are doing to get that extra five percent. He then peels back the layers to show us how we can apply this in a more simple way every single day at work and in life.
In today’s workplace, there is more time pressure than ever, and greater expectations on us to perform at our best; underperformance, burnout, presenteeism and stress-related illness are sadly becoming a familiar part of our language.
We all know that stress affects our health, but in this keynote, Tony shows us how it kills our performance as well, stopping us from doing our best thinking, robbing us of energy and making it harder to control our emotions and behaviour.
Take a journey around the body and brain and see what performance science can tell us about stress. Learn quick and simple re-charge techniques, strategies for emotional control and how effective sleeping and eating can help alleviate this potentially debilitating problem.
Change is happening faster than we like. Disruption, distraction, restructure and re-engineering are becoming constant. People are finding it hard to stay focussed on the things that really count, and managers are finding it hard to keep their people performing at their best.
Tony shows us the science behind how change affects our performance and the behaviours that we choose. He helps staff embrace change and focus on their high-performance behaviours, and he shows managers how to keep their people engaged during these periods. Most of all, Tony challenges the audience to embrace change and take responsibility for making it work.
