Overachievement: The New Model for Exceptional Performance

 

Registration is closed for this event.  If you would still like to attend, please call 713.237.9999.


 

Relax. Set Goals. Remember a time and place when you were calm and successful. Do not dwell on the difficulties or obstacles; focus on the outcome. Lose yourself to the Zone.

All reasonable, sensible, rational words of advice when you are facing a performance challenge, be it a big presentation at work, a crucial point in the game, or a big stage music recital.

And all utterly, hopelessly, wrong.

Performance psychologist John Eliot, Ph.D., author of OVERACHIEVEMENT: The New Model for Exceptional Performance believes such self-improvement nonsense will do nothing but relegate you to a career in mediocrity.

Overachievers do not think reasonably, sensibly, or rationally.

Join us as Dr. Eliot offers counterintuitive and unconventional concepts that have been embraced by the Olympic athletes, business moguls, top surgeons, salesmen, financial experts, and rock stars who have turned to him for performance enhancement advice, such as

* Using Your Head Is Stupid

* Setting Goals Is for Couch Potatoes

* All Those Eggs Belong in One Basket

* Legends Never Say They're Sorry

As Dr. Eliot has discovered through years of cutting-edge research in cognitive neuroscience and real world coaching, techniques such as goal setting, relaxation, visualization, stress management, and flow just don't work for most people. He has proven that at high levels of business, medicine, entertainment, and sports, relaxing when the pressure is on is the wrong way to go.

To really ratchet up your performance, you will need to change the way you think about becoming exceptional - and that means truly being an exception, abnormal by the standards of most, and loving it. Dr. Eliot will teach you that overachieving means thriving under pressure - welcoming it, enjoying it, and making it work to your advantage.

Key topics to be covered include:

1. Identifying, shaping and pursuing your passions

2. How to sustain motivation

3. Handling ups, downs, curveballs and adversity

4. What it takes to be #1

Mixing scientific insights with entertaining and inspiring stories, Dr. Eliot will show you how to achieve spectacular success on the job, on the playing field, or in any situation that demands you rise above and beyond what you ever thought possible.

If you are serious about taking your work to the next level, this workshop is for you!

Dr. John Eliot, Ph.D. has been called the nation’s hottest performance enhancement consultant. Superstar prodigy of world-renowned sport psychologist Bob Rotella, Dr. Eliot helps performers of all levels go beyond limits. He guides professional athletes and musicians, coaches award winning coaches, consults with premier surgeons, and shows top executives how to create a culture of excellence. Clients have included Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs, Adidas, NASA, the United States Olympic Committee, The Mayo Clinic, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, and hundreds of elite individual performers including George Foreman, Rolando Blackman, Tommy John, Howie Long and Emmitt Smith.


In addition to helping others reach exceptionality, Dr. Eliot is himself a product of his life’s devotion to studying peak performance. While growing up he helped his father, an Olympic ski coach and sport science pioneer, train greats such as Bill Koch and Jim Paige (now head of the U.S.O.C.). As a result, John won the junior Olympic championships in Nordic Combined at the 1980 Winter Olympic Games in Lake Placid, New York—at only 10 years old.


Dr. Eliot’s studies have earned him Phi Beta Kappa distinction and an appointment as a Senior Fellow at Dartmouth College—although perhaps not surprising when considering his genetic lineage: the first missionaries to American Indians, John Eliot and Eleanor Wheelock; a long line of Harvard professors including the first Harvard president, William Eliot; the first woman in the United States to receive a Ph.D., Abigail Eliot who founded the Tuft’s school of education; and legendary writer, T.S. Eliot.
