patent pending system uses FDA approved devices that provide specific and accurate data. We run this

Axeos Performance Institute is Granted Patent for System and Method for Selecting and Altering a Training Session

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Dallas, TX – June 8, 2017 – Axeos Performance Institute is once again pleased to announce the issuance of a second patent (US 9,530,331 B2) that utilizes an innovative approach to optimize talent within an organization for the purpose of individual peak performance.

This patent is a springboard from Axeos’ first patent in that it uses it as a baseline from the previous physiological measurements of each individual. The new information is then used in a unique way to determine the most effective course of training to achieve peak performance. The technology draws on many different sources – neuroscience, behavior physiology, and human systems theory, and when combined – as it is in this new patent – can determine what an individual needs to perform at their highest and most productive level.

Bellann Hyten, the owner of Camino Business Management, says this of his Axeos training: “When I first met with Eileen and Pilar, I had just left a corporate job as chief financial officer of a large, local CPA firm.  I didn’t realize it at the time but I was suffering from corporate burnout.  Their process helped me recognize how I was not presently operating at my best and how this impaired performance was negatively impacting other aspects of my life.  Since their services, I am better equipped to operate at my peak abilities. I’m very grateful to them!” 

In addition, Axeos co-founder Pilar Angel, the newly issued patent can be summed up this way: “Let’s take the example of coffee: even though we did not invent coffee per se – or in this instance the exact technology of this utility patent – we did develop a very nice Breakfast Blend to help achieve excellence in personal performance. In this example, the patent is the Breakfast Blend!”

According to Axeos co-founder Eileen McDonald, very few people understand the function of the body’s unique nervous system, or body signals, which are the invisible cues that lead to visible changes in performance. Amy Cuddy said it best, “Our bodies change our mind, our mind changes our behavior, and our behavior changes outcomes.”

The patent further explores an innovative approach to optimizing the talent and resources within an organization including, but not limited to, an individual employee, teams of employees, and to executives within the organization. This patent attempts to improve an employee’s vitality, vibrancy, wellness, and overall work performance.

The Axeos Performance Institute is a wellness company based in Dallas, Texas that trains individuals at the corporate level to better manage stressors that might otherwise inhibit peak performance.

Axeos Performance Institute is Granted Patent for Corporate Training System and Method

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Dallas, TX – Axeos Performance Institute is pleased to announce the issuance of a patent (US 9,251, 716 B2) that utilizes a unique and original way to use health related devices for the purpose of peak performance. The patent, invented by Douglas Drane, Eileen McDonald and Pilar Angel, combines cutting edge technologies from the health field and uses the information they relay to enhance peak performance. Their system allows real-time measurements that identify the way the body responds to different stressors, allowing the individual to become aware of patterns and behavior that limits their performance.

Axeos investor Douglas Drane holds several other patents that are changing the paradigm with regard to how companies and people learn, grow and stay relevant in today’s fast-paced and rapidly changing world. He says, “This patent is important because its cutting edge technology and process is a systematic way that organizes peak performance in the workplace. I am thrilled with the work Axeos is doing and excited this patent has been granted to us.”

This Utility patent differs from other wellness patents in that it combines and utilizes health related devices to measure stressors, and with the acquired data relayed, provides an understanding with which to better coach individuals for the optimization of peak performance in the workplace.

Pilar Angel, Axeos co-founder says, “this patent allows us to own a very specific blend of technologies and techniques that have shown to produce great results for our clients.”

In addition, Eileen McDonald, also a co-founder of Axeos states, “our corporate training system is grounded in scientific research in such areas of neuroscience, behavioral physiology, and psychology.”

MULTITASKING: WHY YOU NEED TO STOP

In the past, many people believed that multitasking was a good way to increase productivity. Recent research has shown that that switching from one task to the next takes a serious toll on productivity.

axxx

Have you ever made a phone call, while you emailed someone and then texted back and forth with someone else? As you were simultaneously performing these activities, you might have thought that you were a great multitasker. That is, until the person on the phone asked you a question to which you had no answer…. since you were not fully invested in it, the point of the conversation has been lost to you. You have just experienced what research is showing over and over again: humans are not very good at multitasking.

Researchers at the University of Texas at Austin have now established that dividing attention across multiple activities is taxing on the brain, and can sometimes reduce productivity as much as 40%. Furthermore, it has been shown that multitaskers have more trouble tuning out distractions than people who focus on one task at a time. According to the research, only 10% of the human population can multitask efficiently; for the rest of us, doing many different things at once can actually impair cognitive ability.

Yes, walking and chewing gum is multitasking, since we are performing two or more tasks simultaneously. However, multitasking can also involve switching back and forth from one thing to another, or performing a number of tasks in rapid succession.

In order to establish the impact of multitasking, psychologists asked study participants to switch tasks and then measured how much time was lost by switching. In one study participants were slower when they had to switch tasks than when they repeated the same task. Back in 2001 another study found that participants lost significant amounts of time as they switched between multiple tasks, and lost even more time as the tasks became increasingly complex.

Watching TV, folding the laundry

Indeed. It takes time for our brain’s “executive functions control” to do many things at once. When you are switching back and forth between your word document to the excel spreadsheet, your brain is adapting itself to the rules each software entails. As you might know by now, word, excel, outlook are complete worlds unto themselves. And while you multitask, this is what your brain is doing:
“Goal shifting” – which is deciding to do one thing instead of another.
“Role activation” -changing from the rules for the previous task to rules for the new task.
Switching between these may only add a time cost of just a few tenths of a second, but if you are in a situation where safety is important such as when you are driving a car in heavy traffic, even small amounts of time can prove critical.

Of course there are the exceptions to the rule. Human beings can balance tasks that use unrelated mental and physical resources, such as folding the laundry and watching the news. More complicated tasks will become messier when using this formula. Our brain can also handle multitasking when performing actions or activities that have become habitual, such as walking and holding a conversation, something a toddler who is learning how to walk-and talk- would find impossible.

When so much needs to get done, what is a person to do? Drumroll please: FOCUS. Do one thing at a time. If you find this answer deflating, you are not alone. Paying attention, remaining with one task until it’s done and then moving on to the next, is something that our culture does not support or consider worthy of praise. Eastern cultures have attention developing arts, such as the Japanese, where martial arts, ikebana, and origami are treasured as mainstays of their way of life. The West has embraced mindfulness as a way to develop your “paying attention, stay put” mental muscle. If this sounds like a challenge worth taking, talk to us. We promise to only listen… and not text.
