Flow and Business: Unlocking the Secrets of Peak Performance

In today’s accelerated business climate, peak performance is no longer optional—it’s foundational. Studies of high performing organizations show that the secret to peak performance is the state of consciousness known as “flow.” Executive Director of the Flow Research Collective, Steven Kotler, discusses how to harness flow to amplify performance. He focuses on increasing key workplace skills such as motivation and productivity, creativity and innovation. With examples drawn from multiple blue-chip enterprises as well as his own experience working with tens of thousands of executives, Kotler turns cutting edge neuroscience into practical, applicable steps for organizational transformation.
