It’s no secret that today’s successful businesswoman is expected to sustain high performance in the face of increasing pressure and rapid change. Many organizations embrace overall fitness and its link to productivity and overall achievement.
The HBA Peak Performance (formerly HBA Fit to Lead) affinity group was established in 2013 to support research linking the relationship between physical fitness and leadership success. It was formed, and is now maintained, by an increasing number of HBA members willing to extend their leadership competencies and strategic network using health, wellness, and personal fitness challenges as a core platform.
Through programs, activities and volunteer opportunities, the group provides a supportive networking environment and unique professional development experiences, helping members make the deliberate connection between improved personal fitness and enhanced leadership confidence and competence.
Peak Performance's philosophy is: growth and management from within.
The group works to provide HBA members with a community to foster a culture of both physical and mental wellness to enhance performance and leadership capabilities.
