Leveraging Sleep for Peak Performance

Well-rested people make better decisions, are more creative and innovative, and manage stress better – not to mention they’re simply healthier in general. These benefits and more are the reasons sleep has been catapulted to the top of heap of human performance enhancers.

From paying employees to get enough shut-eye to installing power-napping pods at the office, sleep-savvy leaders and their organizations are exploring ways to leverage sleep for peak performance.

This month’s Handler Report shares what organizations are doing and why, and presents two case studies that document the results of sleep education and training.

“”Getting more sleep is the single most powerful performance-enhancing thing you can do. It consolidates memory, enhances creativity and manages our moods, appetite and health.” “
