Personal Training

Personal training focuses on 5 key competencies to overcoming dysfunction:

Emotional Self-Regulation, Psychomotor Instrumentality, Somatic Cognizance, Consilience Maintenance, and Corporeal Resilience.

Emotional Self-Regulation

Understanding how your emotion intelligence is a set of six abilities that each require a different set of skills. Based on the work of Goleman, Mayer-Salovey-Caruso, and Dr Kaufman, these skills focus on both internal and external facing abilities. First, understanding what you are feeling, what you are emoting, how are you using what you are feeling to be productive, how well do you understand others emotional signals, what ways are you facilitative to those emotions, and can you create space for emotional beings to take risks. Each of these skills requires behaviors that demand adjustment and regulation to fit the situation. Example Skill: Can I harness and utilize my passions and emotions effectively?

Psychomotor Instrumentality

It’s a fancy academic term that means what physical behaviors and activities can you use and develop to provide new perspectives and new techniques to balance the demands of health, wealth, and happiness. Mindfulness with purposeful breathing is often a starting point. But interoceptive body scanning for tension, vocalization, and developing routines for the management of stressful situations are important as well as looking for ways to regain composure. Example Skill: Can I use my body, my posture, or gestures to anchor or reinforce new behaviors and adapt them at will?

Somatic Cognizance

Whereas Psychomotor Instrumentality is about using embodied cognitive skills to gain new perspectives, Somatic Cognizance is about being aware of the different sensations, feelings, and body-signals that interrupt and shape our decision making. We know from research that impulses from hunger to sex don’t rely solely on ideas and concepts in the cerebral cortex. Hormones from testosterone to ghrelin are produced in other body parts. Therefore, how perceptive are you in feeling what is driving a need and what is fueling a belief? Example Skill: Can I separate my immediate needs from my long-term goals?

Consilience Maintenance

Do you have your MoonShots? Do you know the Missions that build to accomplish those MoonShots? And do you have a North Star to set a standard of performance to navigate by? And more importantly, do you understand your traits, interests, or values and do those align with your goals and standards? These are the skills to increase your Consilience Maintenance. Through the science of self-concept clarity, individuals can be more flexible and resilient if they understand how their traits, interests, values, ethical beliefs, and goals work together in concert to achieve great things. Example Skill: Can I map out my future with my personality and can I see the blind spots or weak characteristics that might thwart my goals?

Corporeal Resilience

This is the most basic and well known. The health and wellness of your body has a huge and immediate impact on your ability to reach your goals. Without rest, relaxation, and stamina accomplishing great things is incredibly hard to do. Therefore, it is critical to develop habits from the latest in nutritional science, physical fitness, and motivational research to ensure the body has the capacity to handle various random stressors. Everything from long nights to complete a report to early morning traffic jams will tax not only our patience but also our overall wellness. And while HCS bring in 3rd party Yoga, Pilates, or Peloton expert sessions, we do custom design methods, systems, and procedures to facilitate excellence from overall wellness. Example Skill: Am I making time for me and my team to recharge?
