Jarrett A. Green

Jarrett Green is an expert in stress-reduction techniques and culture building in high-stress environments. He has enjoyed extensive success helping lawyers and other (sometimes skeptical) professionals to reduce stress, overcome obstacles, and eliminate unwanted work habits. The results commonly include a measured increase in company-wide mental focus, performance, and personal and professional success. 

Jarrett’s approach is premised on the notion that stress and emotional struggles are not only unnecessary for optimal performance, but in fact obstruct optimal performance. Jarrett has developed a comprehensive “Peak Performance Path” that addresses the seven core components of performance:

  • Attention
  • Beliefs
  • Emotions
  • Body
  • Energy
  • Purpose
  • Communication

Jarrett’s philosophy is founded on the idea that if we improve each of these seven components, positive results are all but inevitable: We find our work far less stressful and emotionally draining, and we experience far more focus, power, efficiency, productivity, and overall success.
