Stress can distract you from being productive and achieving your full potential. It’s not possible for you to eliminate all the stress in your life, but what if you had the skills to cope with stress so that you could maximize your talent, realize great results at work, and live a happy life?
Maximize Your Talent was founded in 2001 after several years of research proving the efficacy of specialized training, helping individuals improve work productivity through practical applications of emotional competence (EQ) skill development. By utilizing a comprehensive process that incorporates an assessment, workshop, individual development plan and follow-up process, we assist participants in their quest to experience richer and more productive relationships in both their work and home environments.
MYT is based on the work of leading psychologists who work on the frontier of business and home/work development. Our mission is to teach the EQ soft skills that are proven to build optimal performance while simultaneously minimizing the negative impact of worry, stress and hurry. We help each individual to understand their strengths and weaknesses, developing a plan to maximize their talent.
Optimal performance is experienced when a worker executes the basics of their profession while simultaneously showing a high level of EQ. In his book, Working with Emotional Intelligence, Daniel Goleman call this positive experience being in the “zone.” In their book The Power of Full Engagement, Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz reference this state as being in “flow.” We have all had this experience and enjoyed the benefits in performance and positive emotion. The challenge is how to stay there. Much of our lives are spent trying to keep us in that flow or zone. Each of us hopes we can achieve that state, whether that is in business, family life or sports.
That crucial missing piece is often EQ. How do we deal with our emotions in high stress situations? What are our habitual patterns when under stress? Are we performing at our peak when things do not go our way? MYT’s mission is to offer individuals the ability to answer these questions yourselves, giving you the skills to remain emotionally competent in tough times.
Ambitious people who apply themselves diligently excel over time. MYT’s research demonstrates that our emotional competence intervention enhances participant’s work performance. It reduces the time it takes them to excel and helps high achievers develop their optimal performance of excellence and flow. It does so through targeted coaching of their emotional competence. People who complete our program work more efficiently and have a better time doing so.
