How can purpose fuel our performance? In this special interview with Vanessa Dietzel, you’ll find purpose in the day-to-day and getting ahead of the curve.

Maximise your potential at work while strengthening your well-being. We discuss performance curve habits, such as self-awareness and self-management. People and organisations thrive as well as help each other reach their potential.

This chat explores experience in business, neuroscience, adult development psychology as well as more practical knowledge from breath and body-based traditions and therapies.We also cover the importance of breath and our mind-body connection and why it’s linked to working smarter, not harder.

Vanessa unveils the truth about rewards when setting habits, especially professionally, and how to work with our brains to improve our performance.

Our hidden drivers exert a powerful force in our brains. In particular, they can steer us into what we call ‘protect mode’, the flight-flight-or-freeze survival response.
