Lead from Your Higher Mind

The Physiology of Stress (a.k.a. YELLOW):

Body-wide Effects

A recent Gallup study revealed that only 31% of employees are actively engaged in their work, leaving a staggering 69% of the workforce disengaged and unfulfilled in their professional lives. But why? A big part of this is likely tied to another stat: 83% of U.S. workers are stuck in chronic stress mode (American Stress Institute). Chronic stress not only impairs cognitive function and emotional well-being but also hinders productivity and innovation.

Unleashing vitality is an inside job. Higher Mind Leadership integrates proven and purposeful best practices in leadership with cutting-edge neuroscience to unveil high performance, engagement, innovation, and well-being in record time. Leading a healthy, happy, high-performing team starts with an escape from ever-stressed mode.

Check out the example roadmap below to learn how to move your team out of chronic crisis mode and into the physiology of vitality.

Sympathetic activation is meant to be a temporary state; a lifesaving quickie shift to mobilization in response to a threat. By staying in this YELLOW state, the body is perpetually sending less oxygenated blood to the smarty pants brain, its keeping body system functions dialed way down (digestion, immunity, reproduction), and over time we see physical and cognitive decline, and even damage to subcellular organelles (mitochondria) and genetic content (eroding telomeres of DNA).

Science-Backed Approaches

Trauma-Informed, Resilience-Oriented Approach

Global Best Practice Leadership + Management

Our approach to embodied excellence incorporates:

  • Contemporary neuroscience, recognizing the physiological states related to productivity, engagement, and flow
  • The science of innovation, intrinsic motivation, and intuition, leveraging research associated with creative breakthroughs, intuitive insights, inspiration, and motivation
  • Multiplicity of mind, recognizing common personality parts, such as those addressed in the DiSC DiSCO model, for personal and inter-personal benefits.
  • Shifting focus from surface-level "productivity hacks" to the transformative power of integrating presence via "the part that's not a part," aka Omniversal Self, Quantum Self, Higher Self, etc. (hence the "Higher Mind" in Higher Mind Leadership)

For decades, we have been helping individuals and organizations achieve purpose-aligned impact at spectacular levels. For example:

  • 97% – 325% increase in effective hourly rate (measured as bottom line)
  • 130% increase in productivity (measured as in-scope, reqs-aligned billable time)

…all while boosting employee morale, collaboration, retention, personal and professional growth, and team performance. By addressing the root causes of disengagement and stress, Higher Mind Leadership unleashes vitality in individuals and organizations to thrive in today's fast-paced, ever-changing world.
