Thousands of executives have discovered a powerful truth: the best way to improve your performance is to improve your health and well being. Now, top executive coach Steven MacGregor helps you leverage this truth in your life and your business.

MacGregor brings together breakthrough insights and techniques he's honed through seven years pioneering the internationally-renowned Sustaining Executive Performance (SEP) program, and working with hundreds of leading executives worldwide. In Sustaining Executive Performance, he reveals the profound connections between living a more sustainable, happy, and productive life and improving your organization on metrics ranging from innovation to resilience.

MacGregor addresses core business themes including design thinking, continuous innovation, and corporate social responsibility. Next, he shows how to apply all five elements of the SEP program in your own life: MOVE, RECOVER, FOCUS, FUEL, and TRAIN. Finally, he offers specific guidance for changing your own habits in areas ranging from sleep to meetings and communication.

Throughout you'll find interviews with leading executives and experts. Each interview offers specific takeaways you can use to become a more effective leader — and a more fulfilled human being.
