Experiential Peak Performance Program

Last week, members of our TPM community had an amazing opportunity to learn all about peak cognitive performance and how to obtain it in any endeavor. Mental training experts Mark Williams (USAF, Retired) and Bill Kipp (US Marines, Retired) led the way, spending the first half of the day instructing in the classroom before taking the lessons to the field for the afternoon. After we'd learned about the mechanics of nervous system regulation, situational awareness, and the optimal performance zone, the ropes course that followed offered a great platform to put our learning into action while under extreme duress. The real challenge now will be to apply our takeaways from the whole course to our daily lives.

I want to thank Mark and Bill for sharing their wisdom and experience with us, as well as those of you who blocked out a workday and endured some serious discomfort in the name of peak performance.

 

Did You Vote???

On a related note, I'd like to share my endorsement for Mark Williams, who is running for Representative to the 116th United States Congress in Colorado’s 2nd District. I've been working with Mark over the past 9 months as he heads up our Cognitive Performance Institute, and I can attest to his character and intentions. It's his real world experience, service to our country, knowledge of human performance, and willingness to stand up to career politicians that has me. Read Mark's story here.

Regardless of your choice, be sure to vote by TOMORROW (Tuesday, June 26)!
