Now is a superb time to consider the performance health of your employees, be interested in their mental and emotional states and their capacity to perform. The cutting edge is no longer to do with products or systems; it is to do with ‘human beings’. Leveraging the minds of the people in your business is now your most frontline performance variable. Yet risking people’s capacity to respond to the moment still prevails as the quick buck sadly remains more attractive.
There are many traditional methods and techniques to help people to improve wellbeing and manage insecure or restrictive perspectives and beliefs. Still, for me being in the world of elite performance in sports for over 30 years, application-based solutions are somewhat sticky plaster. The most impactful intervention is to go upstream, of personal limitations and free the human mind to live and perform well. We now have the technology to guide your staff towards living and working more consciously, enjoying the clarity of mind, resilience and creativity to solve problems in record time—the communication prowess to resolve conflict before it erodes your profits.
The proverb, “you can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make him drink” points to businesses providing gyms, massages, flexible hours, and surveys to improve the mental health, and wellbeing of their staff – people need to want to take this action and even when they do, the effect from the distraction of their usual troublesome mind, is short-lived!
Every human being has the natural resources to be their performance coach. Teaching a person where to look, and where not to look, is the jewel behind all human endeavour. Are you ready to develop a happy, healthy and discouragement proof culture in your business?
