Testimonials – Peak Performance

August 7-9, 2018 – Jacksonville, FL

All domains resonated greatly. The biggest tool I plan to use will be writing down my goals and following the Goal Attainment Action Plan.
Outstanding delivery of this course, Seth!
Everyone can use what is taught in this class - at work, home, and personal.
The breathing and meditation exercises will help me when I become overwhelmed.
I loved the whole class but what I found most interesting and what I knew the least about was Neuroscience.
This Training could be used at workplace and personal life. Love it!

July 31-August 2, 2018 – Lakehurst, NJ

The Energy Recovery segment resonated with me most. It allowed me to see what lifestyle factors can allow me to stay at Peak Performance.
I plan to apply/use the relaxation, meditation, and energy recovery techniques to improve my mental and physical health and well-being. This will translate to better work performance and leadership.
The Instructor was amazing! The stories, videos, handouts, breaking up the class to get involved at key points, and the information he provided was so refreshing and far exceeded my expectation. I wouldn’t change a thing.
Very thorough class consisting of tools/techniques for improving mind-body wellness at work and home life.
The domains of Mental Agility and Stress Management were very helpful and informative.
The class was much different than the usual CL class. It was not skills improvement, it was more personal improvement to improve your overall performance in work and personal life.

I like the CEPP model. I will be using this model to self-reflect often. I also will be utilizing the breathing techniques.
The continuum graphs were very interesting and showed me where I am as a supervisor and where I can improve myself.
I enjoyed learning the science behind flow-state, being mentally agile by stepping back from emotions to evaluate cognitive aspects, finding a balance in the energy bell curve by taking breaks, drinking water, and eating a well-balanced diet.
The Neuroscience Domain was interesting. I have taken numerous courses on leadership and courses on neuroscience and the brain. I find it intriguing and will continue to study it.
This is a must class for anyone entering into the government and should be mandatory for supervisory positions.
This class was one of the best I’ve taken in my entire 28 year career.

JUNE 12-14, 2018 – China Lake, CA

It gave me many stress management tools and different ways of thinking about things. Also, I like the 1-2-3 on how to prepare for presentations and the simple eating/energy recover ideas.
Using the energy recovery will be helpful not only in my professional setting but also personally. Using the recovery techniques during work hours will help me to focus on the tasks assigned to me, and using them at home will help me to unwind.
It helped validate and remind me of tools to use in all aspects of my life. All this material is good to have in your mental toolbox.
Mental Skill Building and Mental Agility really resonated. The idea of who I am at my best and how I manage myself and others (rigid or flexible).
This course is great information to improve how we think and shows the importance of wellness.
I will definitely recommend this course. This course will help me to manage stress more effectively and to be the best performer I can professionally and personally.

JUNE 5-7, 2018 – Pax River, MD

Peak performance isn’t about “trying harder.” Was surprised that “trying harder” actually hinders performance. Also reinforced that mind/body/emotions/performance are tied together and all must be attended to.
This program has shown me ways to get more done every day by having a better pace to keep peak performance. I think this is some of the best training I have received in my 32 years of Federal Service!
I would communicate that it is an excellent class away for the traditional training to be able to understand and better yourself.
I would stress the great value in awareness, stress management, and tools to aid in personal/professional performance. The instructor is knowledgeable and passionate so it’s easy to learn in that environment.
The number of ideas for improving and maintaining high personal performance are incredible. And the instructor is one of the very best I have had in uniform or out!
Great teacher - passionate about content. Well poised - easy to understand.

May, 2018 – Pax River, MD

Rhythmic breathing, simple meditative technique, and energy recovery were great. All of these will help me focus throughout the day and be more efficient and productive.
I think that everyone from the receptionist to the SES should take this class.
The class does a great job of showing all the linkages between mind and body wellness. It forces you to think about life holistically in order to achieve a healthy and sustainable balance.
The information is presented in a way so that you can see the benefits of maintaining your confidence and composure to keep you in control which helps you as a whole.
Super training - I wasn’t sure what to expect but this was so much better. I was dreading sitting in class for 3 days, but it was actually very educational, enjoyable, and the time went quickly.
Outstanding class! Great examples, discussions, extremely relevant, and informative instructor.

April, 2018 – Pax River, MD

This class was recommended to me and I have already informed co-workers to sign up for the course. A lot of people believe that being chronic stressed is a sign of success, but in reality a path towards mind/body destruction!
Great class, great information, energized and informed instructor. All beneficial domains, a lot of valuable and doable tools and tips.
This was not death by powerpoint. I can’t believe how much material you were able to cover with so few slides. The discussions and exercises were helpful and clarifying.
Loved all the videos and verbal examples throughout each of the 6 domains.
I really want to delve deeper into meditation to clear my mind of distractions to relieve stress as well as allow me to focus on workplace tasks.
I wish I learned this a long time ago.

April, 2018 – Jacksonville, FL

As a young supervisor I find myself struggling to handle my stress. Thanks to this course I now have the tools to change that!
The sports-related stories were outstanding. And the combat hospital clip - wow I wish I had seen that years ago when I was a team lead.
The Stress Management section provided the most usable lessons/tips that can be used on a daily basis to help me reduce/manage my stress levels and help in focusing on the task at hand. This in turn will help me be more productive in both my personal and professional life.
I think this class was very effective on a personal level. It allows you to discover ways to enhance and improve yourself.
This is one of the best self-improvement classes I’ve ever had. I would love to see this become a mandatory class for all.
Well taught, well prepared, good and useful material. This will be the first packet I will actually keep (28 years on the job).

February, 2018 – Pax River, MD

The entirety of the Stress Management section was particularly helpful to me because it is the area in which I need the most work.
By far the best non-technical training seminar I have taken in the last 5 years. Everyone should take this training, not only for better job performance, but an overall change in “old school” thinking.
I plan on applying what I learned to enhance workforce performance and personal wellness. I plan to use the SMART criteria to detail more specific goals.
I would recommend this training with this instructor. The examples made everything more visual and realistic. You will learn more about yourself in this training.
Seth was an awesome, enlightening, fun, and well-educated speaker that made this class extremely worthwhile. Would recommend his teachings to everyone.
I believe this is beneficial for all members of leadership.

February, 2018 – Lakehurst, NJ

Things like mental skill building and mental agility aren’t typically taught but are very useful in navigating the work environment.
The Neuroscience was the most interesting because it was new and exciting. I enjoyed the Mental Agility & CEPP and “Path A” info the best because those can be easily applied at work and in life.
This class will help break down pre-conceived notions about how the brain works and how to achieve peak performance.
Best class I’ve ever had here @ Lakehurst.
I plan on addressing sleep issues so my immune system is not suppressed so I get sick less often. I’ll use the simple meditation so that hopefully I can calm down enough to be able to fall asleep.
This was the most beneficial course I’ve taking in my 12+ year career. It helps you develop skills across the work life balance which is important than many may realize.

December, 2017 – China Lake, CA

We get so little training in the way of “soft skills” or personal improvement, so this class is a great opportunity to learn something new about yourself and non-technical ways to improve your performance.
I do plan on using all 7 domains personally and professionally. Mental skill building and stress management in the workplace. Neuroscience with my schooling and for my kids.
Value added at all levels. Direct, understandable, and applicable.
I am going to bring many facets of this program to my leadership. Especially the stress and energy building. I have a great team but I don’t think they fully understand themselves and ways to aid in there mental recovery.
The relaxation techniques were useful and are something I can incorporate into my work schedule and work environment.
The instructor is knowledgable, well-organized, and is a peak performer! Thank you!

November, 2017 – Jacksonville, FL

The passion and knowledge base of the subject matter that Mr. Kaplan has passed along in this class is absolutely invaluable. Every aspect of the domains has already made a positive impact in both my professional and personal life.
The Program addresses the mental awareness needed in order to gain the edge needed for success.
I will definitely recommend this training to others!
A great Program with practical information that can be applied to multiple facets of life.
This course, in my humble opinion, will be a valued course to help enhance our workforce in support of production!
I would without a doubt recommend this course. I hope they can get more veterans to work with the Corporate Warrior Peak Performance Program. I would say this an an excellent self-development program that cuts right to the heart of development with tools provided.

There were many things in my life currently causing me stress (work and personal). Now I have the tools to help me assess the situation and have a more composed response/outcome.
I will take the relaxation techniques and use them before presentations. I will also reevaluate my mental agility in different situations.
Best class I have ever taken because it actually has you evaluate yourself. Teaches you how to change your emotional state to become more of an effective employee and individual.
Great course provides a lot of insight regarding mental skill building, mental agility, stress management, energy recovery, and goal setting.
I would definitely recommend this course for overall mind/body wellness. I think this course was the best I’ve ever attended because it teaches you how to apply tools and tips in work, home, and professional situations.
Seth is an outstanding instructor. He is so knowledgeable on so many levels, made this class easy to follow along with, gave practical everyday examples based on expansive experience which I hope will help me immensely! I plan to try the breathing/visualization and meditation right away!

September, 2017 – Pax River, MD

All of it was excellent, one of the best classes I’ve taken at Navair. For me, Energy Recovery and wellness topics were - and will continue to be - extremely valuable.
Extremely beneficial in dealing w/high stress work environment.
Instructor is a very well-qualified SME for this subject. Not one slow, boring minute. All information provided is well-suited to workplace performance along with personal wellness.
Identifying barriers to peak performance, learning how to improvise, adapt, and overcome challenges to get out of the “red” and into the “green” to achieve your OZOF (Optimal Zone of Functioning). These were all great takeaways!
I will use stress management techniques to be calm and focused and be a better decision maker.
In 30 years of federal service - by far the best class I have ever taken.

June, 2017 – Pax River, MD

I plan to share the techniques learned with my team to maintain optimal performance individually and as a team.
This is beneficial at all levels. We work in a high demand place and managing that is hard. The tools discussed will help to manage the stress/workload. Great class - enjoyed all aspects!
Appreciated additional information and tips about child learning and development. I have two small children and will be using this information.
I thought the ENTIRE course was outstanding. What registered most w/me was CEPP and the GAP action plan. Both help me to identify my issues both personally and professionally, but more importantly gave me tools to push through to perform at my best.
I will communicate the entire topics of this course, especially that it applies to both work and personal environments.
Great class - enjoyed all aspects!

Emphasis on self-awareness and appropriately timed self-evaluation. Great explanation of why confidence is so important. Like the explanation of “flow, rhythm, zone” vs. active thinking being linked to anxiety and being “tight.” Really good tools to build a successful performance-based mental framework.
I would highly recommend the course to everyone, especially leadership whose unrealistic expectations to multitask is a direct violation of how our brains function.
I really liked the Goal Attainment Action Plan. It provides a structure, much like a POAM, to outline the tasks to execute to achieve the goal. I can really see the benefits for me personally and for my team professionally.
All levels will benefit from this training because human capital at its optimal performance is the key to business excellence and success.
This course was fantastic. I hope one day to take another Corporate Warrior course.

April, 2017 – Pax River, MD

The Mental Skill Building and Mental Agility/CEPP created the foundation for attaining Peak Performance. The concepts being Confident, Composed, and in Control provides methods of attaining an emotional state to achieve peak performance.
This is one of the best classes offered to civilians and should be expanded and possibly mandatory.
Loved this course. So happy I attended - the timing was perfect. Seth is very knowledgable and engaging. Great instructor and passionate about topic and learning process for us.
I’ve already discussed with my supervisor the value of this class and how I believe our entire department would benefit. I feel energized and armed with some valuable tools and techniques for personal and professional growth.
By far the best class I have ever taken at NAVAIR. Please offer more courses like this one. This was definitely worth my valuable time for 3 days.

April, 2017 – Lakehurst, NJ

This course provided tangible tools that will enable me to create an improved work/life balance for myself and my family. I have learned HOW to change my own behavior.
Neuroscience - fMRI, brain functionality, learning styles. Wish I knew this long ago.
I would recommend this to everyone. I’ve been raving about this since Day 1 of the class. This is BY FAR!! the best course I’ve ever taken since working for the government. The tools learned here are paramount for use at work and in personal life.
Precise points, very professional, knowledgable.
I plan on using the stress management tools discussed and practiced in class to enhance my personal and professional life.
I plan to share this course info with my 19 and 24-year old children who are in desperate need of the information.
Would enjoy taking/participating in any and all other programs offered by Corporate Warrior Consulting.
