To keep up with the pace of innovation, today’s business professional needs to present much more like a high-performance athlete than a factory line worker. And like the best athletes, we need to perform at our peak, for ourselves and our teams, despite an increasingly complex and often chaotic world. The year 2020 has been a powerful reminder of this truth. This course will introduce students to the science of peak performance and provide a toolkit to help them apply this science to themselves, their teams, and their organizations through challenge and crisis. By the end of the course, students will be able to implement the neuroscience of habit building, energy management, and resilience to improve individual performance; use artificial intelligence to predict and improve individual and team performance; drive innovation while minimizing chaos; manage complexity while minimizing complications; leverage people analytics to create a growth engine; and develop a peak performance talent strategy. Class sessions will alternate between lecture and workshop formats. Lectures will feature business executives and performance researchers. Certified peak performance coaches will help facilitate workshops. In the final class session, students will share the impact they have seen from their learnings on their own and in their organizations.
