AXEOS PERFORMANCE SOLUTION
Our program consisted of evaluations and trainings, which included biofeedback and active imagination exercises promoting self-awareness and self-control over mind and body. These real-time measurements allowed the clients to become aware of actions and behaviors that impaired their peak performance. Our clients experienced a notable difference in the way they related to common stressors and triggers, and also become proficient on the impact their physiology has on their performance….and vice versa.
This awareness gave them the ability to change those actions, removing the obstacles for optimal performance. Turning progress itself into a reward enables the executive to master new behaviors that will ultimately impact and benefit their company as a whole.
Prior to the evaluation, the clients choose a goal/ goals from a list. The list consisted of the following:
- Sustained focus
- Peak performance
- Flexibility and adaptability
- Total recall
- Sleep improvement
- Situational stress
- Self confidence
- Interpersonal skills
Evaluation assessed the following parameters in the client: time pressure, anticipation, competition, multitasking and, startle and learning measurements. The computer-driven evaluation analyzed the state of the body’s nervous system at seven different levels over a 12 minute (dynamic) period: brain waves (EEG), heart rate (EKG), respiration rate, heart rate variability (heart EKG signals in conjunction with respiration), hand temperature, galvanic skin response or electro-dermal activity (which is how sweaty your hands can become), and muscle tension (EMG). The evaluation is painless without any form of skin penetration or treadmills required. Sensors were placed on the clients fingers and a respiratory band placed around waist. This certified research quality technology is 98.9% accurate and reproducible. The evaluation took between 30 and 45 minutes, and the client was free to ask questions or stop the test at any time.
2. ISI (INDEPENDENT SELF INVENTORY)
As part of the evaluation process, the client completed an ISI prior to evaluate where they fall on the peak performance scale.
3. THE TRAININGS
Biofeedback training enabled our clients to learn how to change physiological activity for the purposes of improving their wellness and performance. Precise instruments were used in training the individual’s physiological activity such as brainwaves, heart rate, breathing, muscle activity, and skin temperature. These instruments rapidly and accurately “feed-back” information to the user. The presentation of this information — in conjunction with coaching our clients — assisted them in changing their thinking, emotions, and behavior, toward desired physiological changes. Over time, these changes endure without continued use of an instrument.
4. SELF-REPORTING TOOL
Client completed an online progress tracker survey before each of their trainings to monitor their progress.
Common “Learning Themes” from our Executives
