High Performance Institute 

The High Performance Institute, founded by Brendon Burchard, is a team of scholars who conducted research on how high performers think, behave, influence others, and win. We’ve created the world’s only validated high performance assessment as well as the first professional certification program in the field: Certified High Performance Coaching™. We have now been blessed to train, coach, and measure more high performers than any other organization in the world.

What we've learned through our decade of high performance coaching as well as our three-year research study of high performers worldwide is this: dramatic performance improvements are possible with deliberate habits. Practice certain habits and, boom, life changes for the better. It turns out there are just six habits that seem to matter most. Those six habits, which we call the high performance habits or the “HP6” are: seek clarity, generate energy, raise necessity, increase productivity, develop influence, and demonstrate courage.

Our Habit Builder Course is about the art and science of how to develop those deliberate practices. In the online coursework, we provide you with real-world examples and over a dozen additional practices and tools
. The High Performance Institute team, content, research and online platform is science-backed, heart-driven, and strategically built to help make great leaders and companies extraordinary.
