Fortune Magazine reporter goes in search of link between employee productivity and energy management training designed to increase employee wellness. Article contains links to her independent observations in July 10, 2006, Fortune Magazine article.

What is the link between employee wellness and on-the-job performance? That’s one of the questions reporter Cait Murphy of Fortune Magazine asked herself as she participated in the energy management training for executives at the Human Performance Institute in Orlando, FL. Murphy’s independent report, titled “The CEO Workout,” appears in the July 10, 2006 edition of Fortune. Murphy spent two-and-one-half days immersed in this mind-body approach to energy balancing, during which she reports a number of perspective-shifting insights: Stress is good, eat every two or three hours, incorporate rituals for rest and recovery, and, for optimal performance, manage energy, not time.

To answer the question of employee productivity, she seeks out the observations of executives Steve Altmiller, CEO of the San Juan Regional Medical Center in Farmington, N.M., Kirk Perry, a VP at Procter and Gamble, and Brent Hayward, a participant from Starbucks. Each discusses his experiences with the techniques taught in the program and gives his perspective on the positive impact of energy management training on the employees who participate.

The Human Performance Institute’s science-based approach to fully engaging people’s talent and skill grows out of 30 years of experience in the arena of high performance. The Institute has successfully worked with an array of world-class performers from the world of business, sport, medicine, and law enforcement including military Special Forces and FBI Hostage Rescue teams.

The Institute’s executive training is based on the idea that to effectively manage energy requires training like an elite athlete—not an athlete in sports, but a corporate athlete.

It teaches that managing energy, not time, is the key to sustained high performance.

Headquartered in Orlando, Florida, the company was co-founded by world-renowned performance psychologist Jim Loehr, Ed.D, author of 13 books including the national bestseller The Power of Full Engagement and Dr. Jack Groppel, internationally recognized authority on human performance, fitness and nutrition, and author of The Corporate Athlete.
