Executive coach recommends exercise to help executives step up their leadership


What if there were an effective way to boost your brainpower, giving you better cognitive function and enhancing your memory? What if there were a simple way to increase perception, attention and motivation? Most leaders would jump at the chance. But when we coach executives with highly demanding jobs, they frequently tell us they simply don’t have time to exercise.

In this article, Christine Comaford outlines the case for making exercise a non-negotiable part of your routine, citing a series of scientific studies.

She explains that exercise facilitates higher level thinking skills, which enable executives “to increase their focus, increase their cognitive flexibility and think faster.”

Perhaps it’s time leaders applied a cost/benefit analysis and asked themselves, can you afford not to exercise?
