What Gregory Florez Talks About:

Resilient Leadership Through Velocity and Vitality: The 4 Essential Pillars For Success
Great leaders work at a high velocity, demonstrate a driven attitude, and burn more energy on a daily basis than even professional athletes. Unlike athletes, however, there is no off-season for leaders. The highest performing leaders use their physical, mental, and emotional selves to be highly effective. In short, they possess tools for both velocity and vitality. This unique executive program reveals the tools we have used with 40,000 leaders over the past 28 years. Explore the four pillars that create a vital leader in a high velocity world: 

  • Be present when it counts, with effective focus
  • Develop rest, recovery and sleep rituals that ease stress and ensure the ability to re-charge
  • Design intelligent nutrition tools for sustained energy and brain function
  • Perform leveraged fitness and movement - anywhere, anytime

Leaders will learn Simple Changes™ that can be integrated into an already overscheduled calendar for executives, as well as innovative change and accountability techniques to use to truly create and sustain velocity and vitality.

Breakthrough Performance for Leaders and Their Teams
Team vitality is critical to team success and meeting organizational objectives. With teams being asked to deliver more with less everyday, what are your leaders doing to ensure their teams stay focused, engaged, and resilient during challenging times? Gregory Florez starts with a team audit to understand each team’s vitality needs. Then he identifies specific triggers that lead to burnout and lack of team vitality, as well as sharing the keys to creating a vital workforce in your organization. Discover psychological and physical methods for keeping everyone attuned and present, as well as practical tools to improve focus, concentration, and participation. 

Creating Sustainable Mindfulness 
Recent research shows that the average knowledge worker is interrupted every 11 minutes, and that it takes at least 20 minutes to get back on task after an interruption. Technology, information overload, and the demand to do more with less faster, all conspire to drain the focus of knowledge workers and leaders every single day. There is a way to calm the mind and re-engage focus where it counts. Gregory Florez helps clients build practical and powerful mindfulness techniques that integrate into people’s individual and organizational experience. He explores techniques for deep recovery and assimilation of information, effective ways to protect time, preparing mindfully for meetings and presentations, and how to use the stress-recovery cycle to improve focus, and more. 

Turning On The Mind-Body Connection For Extraordinary Performance
Research shows that mental exercises, breathing, short meditations, and other techniques that link the body and mind produce 20-40% improvement in cognitive thinking, timely decision making, and other executive functions utilized by the brain. Gregory Florez shares powerful methods that utilize the holistic self to enable extraordinary mental performance, as well as manage physical and mental reactions from stress during and after challenging situations. He reveals simple, yet powerful, mind-body integration techniques that fit into today’s often overwhelming work and home schedules. These techniques become the habits of extraordinary performers.
