Ep. 035: Strategies for Achieving Peak Performance
In her recent book, Friederike Fabritius presents simple yet powerful strategies for achieving the highest personal performance and focus.
I’m going to let you guys in on a little secret. I’m a total nerd when it comes to the brain and behavior. Why we choose to do the things we do or behave in ways we behave has always fascinated me.
So, a few months ago when today’s guest, Friederike Fabritius, was in town from Germany, I jumped at the chance to interview her.
Friederike is a leading expert in the field of Neuroleadership. In other words, she’s also a total nerd when it comes to the brain and behavior. In her recent book, “The Leading Brain: Powerful Science-Based Strategies for Achieving Peak Performance,” she presents simple yet powerful strategies for:
- Achieving the highest performance
- Sharpening focus
- Learning and retaining information more efficiently
- Improving complex decision-making
- Cultivating trust and building strong teams
Throughout the book, Friederike focuses on using solid scientific findings to develop new methods and practices for leadership development.
With Labor Day upon us and the final quarter of the year in sight, you may want to pick up this book for both you and your colleagues so you can all strive to perform at your maximum potential.
