Planned and managed Peak Stress Responses drive elite athletes towards Personal Best records. PQ offers this challenging resource to executives.
Executives who have been assessed by PQ recognised the symptoms described by their PQ Coaches.
These are the 3 most asked questions we receive.
Can I recognise Peak Stress?
There are anticipatory characteristics: sweating, raised heart rate, butterflies in the stomach. Typically there will be an exaggerated slump a little time after the activity has ended.
Self-management up to and through the Peak is key. Powerful stimulants are released by your sympathetic nervous system to generate focus and energy. Harnessing these resources is a learned skill
For some executives, elevated levels of physical exercise will generate the highest measure of Peak Stress. This needs to be closely monitored to avoid depleting resources required for workplace Peaks.
Patterns of performance in the workplace will evolve in response to Peak Stress data. Just as HIIT has reset fitness management, a more staccato rhythm of work will emerge in many industries.
The productivity Potential clear if the issues are addressed.
Are these executives managing their focus and intensity to the task or by habit?
Elite performance is defined by Peaks.
Planning and Periodisation is required.
Self-reporting specific diary events in detail over a 2-3 day period will highlight the key performance moments and your perceived preparation and response.
Peaks consume large resources. Planning schedules to prepare and recover is as important as the moment of delivery.
Learn from senior colleagues how their Peaks are delivered. There will be more relevant conscious management than you perceive.
Each individual will respond to intervention differently. Reviewing results and recalibrating to optimise is unavoidable best practice.
