Craig Johns – CEO NRG2Perform, Speaker, active CEO Podcast Host

On this episode of the active CEO Podcast we talk about How Exercise Enhances Leadership Performance, on episode #3 of Breaking The CEO Code. It is a short podcast episode where host Craig Johns decodes a new aspect of being a high performing leader each week.

Craig talks about the positive impacts regular exercise has on a CEO or leader’s performance, including:

  1. Release of happy hormones (Dopamine, Serotonin, Oxytocin & Endorphin), which reduce stress.
  2. Powerful influence on brain function, mental clarity, memory, learning and critical thinking.
  3. Positive emotional effects on self-esteem, confidence, motivation and mood.
  4. Creative juices that inspire new ideas, problem solving and interpreting perspectives.
  5. Development of discipline, focus, energy, stamina and resilience.
  6. Cascading effects of exercising on your entire workplace wellbeing.
  7. Health benefits that minimise the risk of heart disease, mental health illnesses and cancer.

He also provides valuable ideas to help up your type, location, intensity, frequency, training partners and duration of your exercise ensuring you stay focused longer, decrease potential boredom and repeating exercise on a regular basis. It’s time for you to learn how exercise enhances leadership performance in your life.

Check out the newly Breaking The CEO Code whitepaper. It provides an overview of Breaking The CEO Code and showcases the 6 key phases. We also go a little deeper into the 2nd phase PERFORMANCE, where we discuss the 3 P’s of Leadership Performance.
