Join LMA Houston on Thursday, February 15 for 
"The Art, Science & Grit of High Performance"

Why do great performers consistently beat their competition? Why are some people “naturally good” at what they do? Is the seemingly ordinary person limited to the skills and abilities they were born with, or can they enhance their performance beyond their wildest dreams?

They can, and there is a systematic, simple way to do so.

Using examples from sports, business, special operators and even astronauts, this session is an exciting mix of storytelling, video and research to show how the elite get to the top and stay there.

• How to incorporate fundamentals and practice into your rainmaker development
• Using wargames and simulations to learn under duress
• Using intensity planning to get more results with less time and less money
• How to knock down resistance barriers from lawyers
