This is part of the Institute for Management Studies (IMS) Leadership Conversations.

These 60-minute IMS live virtual programs provide a quick dive into key topics that are critical to organizations during a time of disruptive change. Packed with actionable learning strategies, participants will experience an interactive virtual program with an IMS thought leader and receive post-session support through micro-learning lessons and a discussion board.

There’s no shortage of advice out there on how to perform better, and better than others, at work. The problem is knowing which methods are scientifically proven to work – and exactly what to do to get the best results.

In 8 Steps to High Performance, talent expert and bestselling author Marc Effron cuts through the noise with his signature “science-based simplicity” approach to identify what matters most and shows you how to optimally apply your time to elevate you and your team’s performance.

It turns out that higher performance comes from doing many things well – and knowing what you can control and what you can’t. Effron reveals the eight key factors you do control and practical steps for improving yourself on each one. In this call, you’ll learn:

  • How to set goals that create higher performance
  • Should you focus on your strengths or weaknesses
  • How to grow yourself most quickly
  • Who to connect with and why
  • Why you sometimes shouldn’t be the “genuine” you
  • How to best manage your body to sustain your performance
