The Psychology of Peak Performance for Leaders

Whether you're leading a team, an organization or your family at home, The Influential Leader is the perfect pocket guide to peak performance.

Using the Psychology of Peak Performance, you will  fuel breakout results in your teams and organization

For the first time, modern leaders can enjoy simple, clear applications of the power of psychology to motivating, communicating and influencing others to achieve peak performance.  The opportunities are limitless.

Since much of what we've been taught about human behavior has been dramatically impacted by modern psychological discoveries, it is critical for leaders to update their knowledge as well.  

For example, did you know that only 5% of our mind's function is conscious. Which means that 95% of our thinking, decisions and behaviors are unconscious?  That means for leaders to influence others, they need to understand how to use the psychology of peak performance to influence their employees and teams.

The Influential Leader applies the discoveries of modern psychology to deliver a pocket guide to peak performance.  You'll learn how your human brain really works, and how you can apply that knowledge to influence everyone to be better.
