This is to be held on the 15th of November. More details below.

+++++

High stakes decisions, performance expectations, ambitious projects, adversity, balance, prioritisation, transition and change. We’re all living and working under uncertainty, stress and pressure.

Rather than just surviving, what can we do to thrive in these environments as individuals and teams?

In an interview style format, you’ll hear from two of Australia’s most respected performance coaches:

  • Dr Chris Gaviglio, Head of Strength & Conditioning at the Queensland Academy of Sport, and
  • Jonah Oliver, one of Australia’s top performance psychologists

It will be an in-depth exploration of the principles, tools and strategies for physical and mental recovery.

We’ll be talking about lessons learnt from elite performance for individuals and teams and how they can be applied at work, at home and in our daily lives.

[Proceeds from this event will go to the Leukaemia Foundation]

This event is for people who:

  • Have a passion for high performance for themselves and their teams
  • Are seeking tested strategies, tools, habits and routines to better manage everything from energy levels to decision making
  • Are looking for insights that are typically only shared with elite athletes and performers.

In this session you’ll hear:

  • Lessons from diverse experiences: from athletes to surgeons, from racing car drivers to executives
  • How these lessons can be applied at work and at home
  • How to manage and optimise recovery for individuals and teams
  • How to create a systematic approach to rest and recovery to be able to perform when it matters most
  • The concept of periodisation and how it can be applied across daily, weekly, monthly, yearly routines and disciplines
  • The danger of the myth of “always on” and what can be done about it
  • And much more.
