Establishing the goals is not the challenge. The challenge will be in accomplishing the goals. That is why we are excited to have Dwight Edwards on board as our high performance coach. He is helping our firm to define those goals and then will work with us individually to meet them. I am impressed with Dwight because he gives us...news we can use!

Dwight is very conscience of the modern day reality that powerful messages need to be conveyed quickly and impactfully. He has spoken to my employees twice in the past year. Both presentations - one on customer care, the other on thinking out-of-the-box - were 30 minutes or less. In each case he used his vast mental inventory of interesting and relevant stories, quotations and examples to highlight the high performance lessons.

What a huge impact you had on my students. You truly got their attention and they now understand the importance of finding their extraordinary dream and how to make it come true. In one short class period you helped them put into perspective what is really important in life. What a clever and creative way to describe the course of life using 'A Tale of Three Ships.' Although it is a short book, it is packed with tons of eye-opening ideas and thoughts.

5 Pillars of Peak Performance was given to me by a wonderful friend.  This audio CD has completely changed the way I look at every challenge.  It has helped me pushed myself beyond what I knew and what I thought I was capable of doing.  I went from an ordinary part-time recruiter to Senior Project manager and I finished my Bacherlors of Arts in Public Relations and Marketing with a 3.99 GPA.  When I was discouraged with work, school, or life in general, I would pull this CD out since it is so encouraging, uplifting, and it truly helped me re-focus so I could get back on track.  I strongly recommend Dwight Edwards' teaching to students in high school and college, employees, managers, and even CEOs!

"I LOVE, BUT LOVE HELPING PEOPLE AND ORGANIZATIONS TO MAKE THE NECESSARY MENTAL SHIFTS AND BELIEF ADJUSTMENTS THAT ENABLE THEM TO MOVE UP TO THE NEXT LEVEL OF EXTRAORDINARY LIVING AND PEAK PERFORMANCE. WE ONLY CHANGE WHEN WE BELIEVE WE ARE “TRADING UP.” IN OTHER WORDS, WE ONLY LET GO OF WHAT’S HOLDING US BACK WHEN WE RECOGNIZE THAT LETTING GO WILL PUT ENOUGH ROOM IN OUR HANDS TO TAKE HOLD OF THE BETTER AWAITING US. WE LET GO OF THE TWINKIES SO THERE’S ENOUGH ROOM IN OUR HANDS TO TAKE HOLD OF THE FILET MIGNON. AS OUR TAG LINE PUTS IT, ‘TRADING UP TO YOUR BEST LIFE.’ THAT IS WHAT I AM COMPLETELY ABOUT."
