The modern workplace demands creativity and innovation. We’re asked to operate at our peak for longer and more often than ever before. At the same time, the business environment is more volatile and unpredictable than it has been for decades.
Unfortunately, few of us are taught the true (and simple) key to sustainable peak performance. So we push ourselves to succeed and often end up burnt out or in states of chronic stress and overwhelm.
What if all of the old ways of thinking about human performance are backwards? Advances in neuroimaging technology over recent decades have allowed scientists to better see what happens to our brain in Flow and, significantly, what we can do to increase our access to this powerful state.
Flow is a peak state of consciousness where we feel and perform our best. In Flow, we’re so focused on the task at hand that everything else falls away. Hours feel like minutes, action and awareness merge, our inner critic vanishes and performance, both physical and mental, goes through the roof.
For most people though, Flow happens by accident. We’ve all experienced it but most people don’t know how to recreate it or how to get more of it. We currently stumble in and out of Flow…and some rarely access it at all. Sadly, most working environments in the 21st century are not conducive to Flow.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. When you understand the four stages of the Flow cycle and the critical steps so many of us get wrong, you’ll begin experiencing more and more Flow in ALL aspects of your work and life.
Watch our short video to find out more about the power of Flow.
Provided certain conditions are met, Flow is available to anyone, anywhere. It’s universal and is a state that can be triggered when we know how, and set the essential conditions in our workplaces and lives.
Leaders and teams need to be given the manual to use the tools they already have available to them, and within them, that help foster individual and group Flow. That is, by understanding and optimising our own neurobiology we can access Flow with greater ease and consistency, boosting performance, creativity, learning, and wellbeing!
That’s why we’ve created the PEAK + PREHAB Program.
In this 2-day face-to-face course, we'll simplify the science of Flow. If you're
● Searching for a way to balance your professional goals and demands with the rest of your life?
● Want to massively boost your performance and wellbeing?
● Looking to improve the productivity and protect the wellbeing of entire teams in these uncertain and difficult times?
then our new PEAK + PREHAB Program is for you.
The PEAK + PREHAB Program will totally revamp your approach to work and life. It will provide you with actionable information, tools and techniques that can help you to increase your and your team’s productivity by up to 500%, creativity by up to 430%, skill acquisition by up to 490% and help you maintain this creativity, productivity and increased wellbeing for days.
Sound too good to be true… it’s not if you know how to access Flow.
Flow is a transformation available to anyone, anywhere, provided certain conditions are met. At the conclusion of this program, you’ll know what those conditions are and you'll walk away with actionable steps and tools to apply to every area of your life to embed these conditions and tap into Flow with increased consistency and ease. If you want to accomplish your most important personal and professional goals in this 21st century of rapid change and uncertainty, you have to lead a high Flow life.
The course runs for two consecutive days from 9.00 am to 5.30 pm.
We are currently taking bookings for 2021.
$2,200 (inc. GST) for the two day PEAK + PREHAB program.
Don’t delay - we have to limit our numbers at the current time to ensure we can do this safely - so the order in which we receive your reservation request will be the order in which we offer places

At the end of Day One you'll have the skills and knowledge that lay the foundations for both increased individual Flow and group Flow.
You'll learn how to befriend your brains, because, at the heart of it, that’s what performance is. Learning more about our brain and what it needs to function optimally is key to optimising our performance and wellbeing in every aspect of our lives. It's why we start with some brain basics because many of us know more about what our cars and electronic devices need to perform at their peak (and to keep them ‘healthy’) than we do our own brains. Yet, it is our brain that controls every single one of our thoughts and actions!
You'll learn about a simple trick to overcome your human negativity bias and how to rewire your nervous system with greater resilience and resourcefulness. We'll show you how to steer yourself out of the past or future and into what flow researchers call the deep now (which is critical for Flow!) and how your mindset directly affects your ability to recover from setbacks or adversity and much much more!
You'll learn to apply neurobiology and psychology to access PEAK states more frequently and set foundations that act as a kind of PREHAB for life in the 21st century - an era filled with constant distraction, rapid change and increasing uncertainty.
You'll build your ability to shift your state into Flow so that you can let all those core skills you’ve worked tirelessly to develop over the years, propel your success, instead of you having to push (and potentially burnout or live in a state of chronic stress). This is what’s going to be the difference between surviving and thriving in the 21st century. Training states is also becoming increasingly important because as technology accelerates, the diversity of skills we need to be able to be good at something is constantly expanding too, and Flow boosts learning.
The degree to which you are in a high state (eg Flow) or low state (eg anxiety or depression) of consciousness affects much more than our mood. It affects how susceptible we are to persuasion, how clear our judgment and decision making is, and how much detail we can recall.
Being able to alter our levels of consciousness is at the heart of how effectively we learn, decide, remember, innovate, communicate and many other vital processes for life.
Getting the fundamental underlying physiological piece right is vital. Many workplace effectiveness programs skip over this, but the ability to drive yourself into a state that facilitates Flow is vital. The scientific evidence is overwhelming: what we’re really talking about when talking about driving performance is getting our biology to work for us, rather than against us. PEAK + PREHAB is designed to help you do this.
In the final part of Day One, we’ll help you to better understand how to use the tools you already have available to you (your brain and body) when we cover aspects of your physiology and tools and techniques that can help to fuel more Flow (and other PEAK states) in your life. You'll practice the same respiratory control techniques that the Navy SEALs use to condition their bodies against the fight/flight response and get into flow faster.
On Day Two, you'll build on the foundational skills of Day One and emerge with a full understanding of how they fit into the fundamentals of Flow. Crucially, you'll learn about the four stage of the Flow cycle, how to remove or avoid blocks to Flow and how to embed triggers that will help you create and maintain this peak state with increased ease and consistency. You'll learn what your personal Flow profile is so that you know when, where and how YOU most easily get into Flow so that you embed the most powerful practical steps and conditions that will work best for you or your specific team members.
We'll help you understand the neuroelectrical, neurochemical and neuroanatomical changes that occur in your brain during Flow, in a way that is simple and practical and we'll provide you with actionable steps to apply this knowledge and boost Flow in your everyday.
Designed for leaders and anyone looking to drive powerful change in their life and the lives of those around them, PEAK + PREHAB is a neuroscience-based peak performance training for all of us struggling with the distraction, uncertainty and overwhelm in modern workplaces and life.
The Flow fundamentals covered on Day Two will help you understand how the powerful psychology and physiological practices and models covered on Day One, when embeded into your routines and your environments, help you to foster and fuel Flow in your workplace and life.
Wellbeing is a critical issue in the current climate of stress, increased uncertainty and limited social connection. PEAK + PREHAB takes participants through evidence-based practices that are not only foundational for Flow but have been shown through Positive Psychology research over the past 30 years, to boost and protect wellbeing too.
BONUS: On completion of the 2 day PEAK + PREHAB Program, attendees will unlock access to a reduced rate on an evidence based Positive Psychology Toolkit for them to take away and implement immediately with their teams to start setting the foundations for Flow. The toolkit includes all recordings, resources and activity sheets for 24 science based micro-modules designed to build connection, engagement, resilience and communication, and to make wellbeing a BAU item in your workplace.
Anyone looking for ways to get more done in less time and with improved quality and increased wellbeing in the process.
Leaders looking to increase engagement, performance, creativity and wellbeing in their own career and life, and who want tools they can take away to achieve the same within their teams and organisation.
HR professionals looking to redefine Leadership capabilities for the 21st century and provide the leaders in their organisation with the knowledge and practical tools essential to counteract the global impact on productivity, performance and wellbeing resulting from the unprecedented events of 2020.
Business owners, trainers and HR professionals wanting to incorporate Flow training and simple tools and techniques that facilitate increased access to Flow and other peak states, into their existing leadership and people development programs and initiatives.
Parents and partners wanting to strengthen relationships and looking for practical ways to boost and protect psychological wellbeing and skyrocket performance in all areas of life.
Anyone who is tired of binging on Netflix or craving a holiday to escape the realities of life, and instead are ready to learn how to better use the tools they already have to enrich their life instead of escape it.
Anyone who is ‘Zoom saturated’ and craving quality face to face training again – after almost a year of online meetings and training... we’re so excited to be getting back in a room together (albeit appropriately distanced!) to share the irreplaceable energy that comes when we connect in person.
Anyone located outside of Sydney (at this point in time) – unfortunately, due to travel restrictions, this program is currently limited to Sydney participants. However, we hope to be able to offer PEAK + PREHAB in Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth in 2021 (email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest in attending in any of these locations).
Anyone not open to new ways of thinking or being. Overturning a lot of conventional wisdom about high performance and wellbeing is at the core of this program – so an open mind and a willingness to challenge what we think we know – about ourselves, about each other, and about what is possible – is essential.
Anyone not committed to putting into action the tools they take away from the program, beyond the 2 days of face to face learning. Like any program, what you get out of it will be determined by what you put in. While the information and practices you’ll learn in this course have been made simple and practical, getting the most out of this program will require courage, commitment and discipline beyond our 2 days together to embed the new practices and habits in your life and workplace
If you would like to discuss whether this course is right for you, or would like to explore bringing the program, or components of it, directly to your organisation or existing leadership or wellbeing initiatives, please contact the lead facilitator directly at email@example.com.
