Body-‐Brain Performance Coaching
“Business Performance is Human Performance” Top performing individuals and organizations recognize that their overall health affects every facet of their capacity to perform no matter who they are or what they do.
In today’s global business climate, executives work more hours per week than at any other moment. Faster-moving markets, shorter time to deliver, constant change and tighter budgets all mean greater pressure and increased time and energy demands. The resulting increase in stress levels significantly affect work-life balance, health, happiness and ultimately performance.
At BBPCoaching, we strive to turn this equation on its head. By learning how to apply effective health and performance strategies, professionals today can ensure they will be Fit To Lead so they can remain on top of their game and work towards improved sustainable business performance.
Recent research shows that both the personal and the business cost of disengagement, presenteeism (working while less than fully functional) and increased executive turnover are many times higher than previously thought. As executive performance continues to suffer from stress mismanagement and ineffective approaches to physical and mental health and performance, business performance and the bottom-line suffers.

To expect change in one, we must make a change in the other. Our body-brain coaching methodology is truly unique in the world of executive coaching, and we, like many of our clients, believe it is the first step in a new evolutionary direction of human performance. And so we strive to be at the forefront of the science of human performance, utilizing our experience across international business, coaching, human physiology and neuroscience, to support our clients to attain peak performance.

The Leadership Circle 360 Feedback and Leadership Culture Survey
The Leadership Circle and Leadership Culture Survey are comprehensive leadership development and transformation systems that reveal the relationships among patterns, habits and internal assumptions that drive behavior at the individual and group levels.

The Leadership Circle and Leadership Culture Survey profile reports are an integrated, comprehensive and concise assessment that are easily readable and understood. It is broken into systematic components of “Creative Competencies” and “Reactive Tendencies” that are further delineated into specific behavior patterns and habits. The added utility of TLC and LCS profiles are the correlations of each behavior with leadership effectiveness and group performance, based a complex statistical analysis of tens of thousands of leaders globally. This level of awareness building empowers leaders to understand the relationship between how they habitually think and how they behave - and how all

“Improving Performance With Life-‐Changing Effect” High performing individuals and organizations recognize that being at their best means something other than holding a myopic focus on meeting the immediate task at hand. They recognize that their peak performance requires developing and maintaining greater levels of energy, awareness, focus, resilience, mental and creative capacity. Our clients are seeking to improve their performance the right way and we work with them to deliver those results with lasting and expansive impact. But it goes beyond performance at work. Many are transformed, finding new sources of energy and levels of confidence, improving health and even reversing debilitating diseases. In short, our clients benefit beyond just work productivity, and that is what makes our work both effective in the long-term and rewarding.

We started the training with a small group of Finance executives and their enthusiasm from the workshop is spreading throughout the organization...a great way to bring about change.
