The Grow, Perform, Sustain workshop looks at key measures of effectiveness in the modern world of work and life. It examines how you can perform at a high level without sacrificing your well-being and health.
Based on two years of research on high performers across a range of fields, including professional athletes, musicians, Navy Seals, FBI agents, surgeons, priests, and business people. What we saw across all domains is that the people who did the best long term were the ones who learned to balance the intersection of three needs:
· The need to perform
· The need to grow
· The need to not burnout
People who found the right balance for their stage of career and context were the ones who grew, performed, and maintained well-being over long periods. This led to successful careers without burnout or sacrificing health, family, and personal lives.
