Proven Methods to Maximize Performance & Effectiveness
Have you ever experienced the sensation of complete fluidity between body and mind? When time seems as though it has slowed down and you are so deeply in the present moment, absorbed in what you are doing? Your senses are high, you are fully immersed and at one with the task at hand. Athletes refer to this as ‘being in the zone’, marathoners call it “runners high” and others refer to it as a ‘heightened state of consciousness’ This state is also recognized in positive psychology as being in flow.
Popularized by Hungarian Psychologist, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, flow is considered the optimal state in which we perform at our best. With flow coaching, you can find yours.
What is flow coaching?
Considerable responsibilities are placed on corporate leaders and executives, which can often lead to high levels of stress and fatigue. Leaders who live under constant pressure are particularly vulnerable to burnout, diminishing physical and emotional energy and undermining productivity. This leads to demotivation and monetary loss for the company. Flow coaching helps leaders to maximize energy and human possibility so they can serve their mission.
Your brain in flow
Flow is achieved through a variety of interventions or triggers that lead to what neuroscience refers to as “transient hypofrontality.” Transient means temporary, hypo- means to slow down or disengage, and frontality refers to the prefrontal cortex region of your brain. Simply put, when the brain is in a state of flow, it is less active, therefore less analytical or “cerebral.” It is believed that when the prefrontal cortex is in a more relaxed state, you are more available to higher cognitive processing.
This result is enhanced creativity; you feel at one with yourself and the activity you are engaged in, which is why time seems to slow down. Neuroscientific studies have referred to this as an altered state of consciousness. As a flow coach, I draw from a holistic set of interventions that help clients to access flow.
