Close your eyes, take a deep breath in, and imagine your team operating at peak performance, exceeding goals and each member feeling and working at their best. Now, breathe out, letting out a sigh of relief knowing that's fully within the realm of possibility — through mindset training.

In this episode of the Global Medical Device Podcast, Jon Speer talks to Kevin Bailey, mindset coach and founder of Dreamfuel, a mindset coaching solution for high growth companies.

Kevin is the mindset coach for Greenlight Guru and has worked with Jon and Greenlight Guru employees over the years by providing mindfulness tools and techniques that teams can use to improve overall mindset. Listen to what Jon has learned from this mindset training and how the medical device community, too, can benefit from engaging in mindset practices at work.

Some highlights of this episode include:

  • Being the CEO of a high-growth startup proved to take a whole other level of work that required mental strength and resilience. Kevin used mental models to reframe experiences and have a more positive attitude while leading people.
  • CEO Cues: Feeling motivated or burnt out? How is the business doing? People follow their leaders and want to boost productivity and camaraderie.
  • Working with Kevin from Dreamfuel has changed the world for Jon and his colleagues, as well as other companies trying to do great things, make a difference, and feel better.
  • Mindset is an important practice for success in a company. About 95% of thoughts are subconscious and automatic, like a heartbeat. Also, 70-80% of those thoughts and actions are negative, disempowering, limiting beliefs.
  • A measurable difference, consistency, and alignment of peak performance can be achieved by companies, executives, and staff via neuroscience principles.
  • The stigma around meditation is stopping people who need it from doing it. What’s the goal? There’s no outcome you are going for in meditation.
  • Acknowledge and let go of thoughts spinning in your mind because dopamine (pleasure) and serotonin (joy, happiness, and presence) create a balanced mind.
  • Your breath controls your physiology, and your physiology heavily influences how you feel, how you think, and what you do. If you can control your physiology, it’s easier to control your thinking and behaviors. Breathe rhythmically and smoothly.

Memorable quotes by Kevin Bailey:

“Mindset is such an important practice for success in a company.”

“We’re trying to kind of take these practices that have been utilized for ions to help people be happier and perform better, wrap them with some neuroscience, so that people can accept and understand them, but there’s still that stigma.”

“There’s no outcome you’re going for in meditation. You purely do meditation to do meditation.”

“Your breath controls your physiology, and your physiology heavily influences how you feel, how you think, what you do.”
