From the Field to the Boardroom: What Sports Science Can Teach Us about Engagement and Performance

From the Field to the Boardroom: What Sports Science Can Teach Us about Engagement and Performance


November 2015

Gallup reports: "Seven in 10 American workers are 'not engaged' or 'actively disengaged' in their work, meaning they are emotionally disconnected from their workplaces and less likely to be productive." This has a direct impact on your enterprise’s bottom line. For the last 45 years, strength coaches, athletic trainers, physical therapists, physiologists, psychologists, nutritionists and others have been studying how we can push ourselves to the limit. This session will discuss how sports science is helping to improve human performance through strategies that: engage the whole person, manage energy and recovery, enable stress reduction and fully realize and tap into the emotional, mental and physical needs of people. These strategies will backed up by research developed by the Human Performance Institute for their "Corporate Athletes" course, a science-based energy management course designed to strategically help participants become more productive and effective under pressure by managing their energy more effectively. The practical application of these strategies will be illustrated with case studies and will cover health, wellness and HR policies, incentives, workplace and real estate strategies and food provisioning.
