In a conversation with New York Times bestselling author and peak performance expert, Steven Kotler, on his new book, The Art Of Impossible, Leon Goren speaks with Steven about what he has learned from studying how people pull off the impossible in every domain imaginable: sports, science, technology, business, art, music, culture, etc. Building on his research and cutting-edge neuroscience, he has systematized an easy-to-follow how-to format that anyone can use to significantly improve their lives and their performance. Find out what it takes to accomplish the impossible, to shatter our limitations, exceed our expectations, and turn our biggest dreams into our most recent achievements!
Steven decodes the secrets of elite performers - athletes, artists, scientists, CEOs, etc. - who have achieved what was previously thought of as 'impossible'. He explains how we can stretch far beyond our capabilities, making impossible dreams much more attainable for all of us. We are all capable of so much more than we know. It doesn't really matter what the "more" that you want is - maybe you want more productivity; maybe you want a more meaningful life; maybe you want to be the first person to live on Mars - the formula is always the same. We all share the same biology, and the secret to peak performance is getting our biology to work for us rather than against us.
In this interactive fireside chat, we cover:
- We are all capable of so much more than we know. Human potential is invisible especially to ourselves. There is a formula to achieve what you may believe is impossible.
- Learn how to get to a 'state of flow' - an optimal state of consciousness where we feel our best and perform our best.
- Explore a quartet of cognitive abilities: motivation, learning, creativity and flow; and why these skills are so crucial to peak performance.
- Why not going big is so detrimental to us as leaders and individuals.
- It all begins with curiosity.
