Every week in my business I try to maintain some routines that help me stay in peak condition, both mentally and physically. If you’ve followed me on social media or read my blogs you’ll know that I go to the gym four to five times each week and have since I was about 15 years old. In addition, I try to watch what I eat (I kicked all gluten and dairy products out over 10 years ago); I aim for seven hours of sleep each night, spend quality time with my boys each day I’m home…the list goes on.
I tell you this because my guess is that you know the kinds of habits and routines you need to maintain in order to stay in a peak performance mode for yourself. The only reason you might not maintain this level of performance is because you get out of routine, over-tired or are maybe amidst some hectic travel or a big project.
Regardless, knowing what it takes to achieve peak performance for ourselves is quite simple, but what about how to help our employees achieve peak performance while they’re at work? That’s a little more complex.
It may often seem that helping an employee achieve peak performance is a waste of time if they don’t seem to have the same work ethic, personal values or habits that we do.
If you think this is true, well you’re wrong.
In my experience everyone wants to be the best at what they do on some level. Our challenge as leaders of course is to figure out where the employee’s interests lie, and how specifically we can help them to achieve peak performance.

This week I put together a brief video for you that addresses exactly this question based on the coaching work I’ve done with individuals and teams for over two decades. Take a few minutes to watch it and then send me an email and let me know if you have other strategies you’ve found that work in helping your employees achieve peak performance.
