Peak Stress Response

Planned and managed Peak Stress Responses drive elite athletes towards Personal Best records. PQ offers this challenging resource to executives.

Sleep Quality
The capacity to Peak is built upon consistent, reliable Recovery platforms. Sleep Quality is the most important.
Recovery/Stress
Without a suitable balance between Recovery and Stress it is difficult to deliver exceptional performance.
Accumulated Stress
This acts as a negative weight, consuming energy and reducing intensity. It works against Peaks.
Initial Recharge Level
Low levels of recharging will impair the ability to lift performance later in the day.
FAQs about Peak Stress Response

Executives who have been assessed by PQ recognised the symptoms described by their PQ Coaches.
These are the 3 most asked questions we receive.

Can I recognise Peak Stress?

There are anticipatory characteristics: sweating, raised heart rate, butterflies in the stomach. Typically there will be an exaggerated slump a little time after the activity has ended.

Can I manage Peak Stress?

Self-management up to and through the Peak is key. Powerful stimulants are released by your sympathetic nervous system to generate focus and energy. Harnessing these resources is a learned skill

Are other stressors picked up?

For some executives, elevated  levels of physical exercise will generate the highest measure of Peak Stress. This needs to be closely monitored to avoid depleting resources required for workplace Peaks.

THE KEY METRIC FOR ELITE PERFORMANCE
For executives and organisations focused on intense optimisation.

Patterns of performance in the workplace will evolve in response to Peak Stress data. Just as HIIT has reset fitness management, a more staccato rhythm of work will emerge in many industries.

14%
Only 14% of executives in the PQ database secured a Peak Stress score above 8.0.

The productivity Potential clear if the issues are addressed.

55%
More than half of the executives PQ has measured have scores below 7.5.

Are these executives managing their focus and intensity to the task or by habit?

 
4 NEXT STEPS

Elite performance is defined by Peaks.
Planning and Periodisation is required.

JOURNAL

Self-reporting specific diary events in detail over a 2-3 day period will highlight the key performance moments and your perceived preparation and response.

PLAN

Peaks consume large resources. Planning schedules to prepare and recover is as important as the moment of delivery.

OBSERVE

Learn from senior colleagues how their Peaks are delivered. There will be more relevant conscious management than you perceive.

REVIEW

Each individual will respond to intervention differently. Reviewing results and recalibrating to optimise is unavoidable best practice.
