Answers to Common Questions about
Certified High Performance Coaching
What is high performance? Certified High Performance Coaching is a form of personal development or growth that is super effective with just about anyone. It's focused on helping you become the best version of yourself and constantly find a new level of success in every area of life.
What does "high performance" mean? High Performance means developing the behaviors and mindsets that help you succeed beyond standard norms consistently over the long-term while maintaining positive well-being and relationships.
High performance is not about working harder or for more hours. It's not only for those in business or for Olympic athletes...although it helps them in the same ways it helps a new mom, a college student, a CFO, a dancer, or an engineer. In other words, it's for anyone.
What is Certified High Performance Coaching? Certified High Performance Coaching is a science-backed, results-oriented, proven coaching curriculum that focuses on empowering questions, development of supportive habits, creation of success-helpful mindset, and use of specific outcome-based tools to help clients reach their next level of success in all areas of their lives. The program includes 12 core sessions and then progresses on through another 24 sessions. (In late 2019 another 12 sessions will be added to the curriculum.)
Certified High Performance Coaching is nothing like “life coaching,” which is client-driven rather than outcome-driven. That’s one reason why clients report such high levels of satisfaction with Certified High Performance Coaching programs—they get results.
Are most people satisfied with the results they achieve with Certified High Performance Coaching? Yes. In fact, the High Performance Institute—the same organization that certified me as a CHPC—sought proof of such satisfaction and teamed with a third-party company to track 37,603 CHPC sessions in 173 countries delivered by CHPCs. Here's what they discovered: The average client satisfaction rating for Certified High Performance Coaching was 9.6 out of 10—the highest score ever recorded for any multi-month coaching program.
Is there data to prove that Certified High Performance Coaching provides specific results? Yes. Brendon Burchard, the High Performance Institute researchers and graduates from the Master of Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) program at the University of Pennsylvania developed a scale, called the High Performance Indicator (HPI), to measure the factors that matter most in predicting individual high performance as defined as long-term success. Based on research and proven performance improvement methods, the HPI is the world's first validated assessment on high performance created and backed by a high performance coach (Burchard) with over a decade in the field.
The HPI, the largest and most comprehensive high performance study ever conducted, analyzed over 100 human performance variables in six key categories proven to relate to a person’s long-term success potential. The researchers found that: The HPI has proven to strongly correlate with external measures of success (sales performance, academic GPA performance, executive promotion odds, business unit financial success) AND important life outcomes like happiness, health, positive relationships, and confidence.
There's more to the science of Certified High Performance Coaching. A report was published on May 15 that offers much more information on the HPI. Remember, this assessment measures the habits that lead to long-term success across domains, and it's comprised of six subscales that separately measure clarity, energy, necessity, productivity, influence, and courage.
The two studies with a total of 174,054 participants, showed that the HPI was predictive of several important life outcomes:
- education level
- perceived excellence
- life satisfaction
- quality of interpersonal relationships
- work quality
- career impact
Indeed, high performance is about leveling up EVERY area of your life. And Certified High Performance Coaching affects each life arena for just about any type of person.
I've seen this with my clients. They may be writers, for instance, that want to become more productive. After a few Certified High Performance Coaching sessions, however, they are exercising regularly, decluttering their homes, and spending more time with friends and on hobbies. And they begin writing consistently, which makes them more productive.
My clients who are professional dancers want more confidence. Yet, they end up meditating daily, using a planner to organize their days and reducing the time they spend looking at screens on their phones, computers, and tablets. And...they find themselves moving to the front during daily dance classes and boldly learning and auditioning for parts...and getting them.
The entrepreneurs and business people with whom I work tell me they want to increase their income or bring in more clients. But they end up creating more downtime, revamping their calendars and schedules, and pursuing long-forgotten passions. Plus...they implement new habits at work that make them more effective and plan how to persuade team members and potential clients, which helps them become better leaders land new accounts consistently.
What to Expect from High Performance Coaching
Over the course of three months, High Performance Coaching explores all the ways you can reach heightened and sustained levels of performance and potential in your life.
As a Certified High Performance Coach, I work with you in five key areas:
The most successful people in every area of life and work have developed a command of these five areas.
To help you do the same, our sessions aim to help you master your:
The program is conducted over the course of 12 or 24 weeks with weekly phone or Skype calls.
After each session, you receive a worksheet that helps you take the concepts you learned to a deeper level and provides frameworks and tools you can put to use immediately.
You also receive a recording of each session (placed in a private DropBox) and a follow-up document that highlights the major insights, accomplishments, and commitments from each session.
Sessions are an hour long and cover one module of the Certified High Performance Coaching curriculum. Each session builds on the previous ones. You can see the description of the first 12 Core Sessions content below.
What You will Learn during
Certified High Performance Coaching
The Core Sessions cover 12 topics or sessions that help you reach heightened and sustained levels of performance and potential in your life.
- The goal of this session is to discover where you currently focus your attention, what level of agency or control you currently feel in your life, and what habits help you perform at your highest level and which ones hinder you from reaching high performance.
- The goal of this session is to understand where you have strengths and gaps in the amount of clarity you experience in life. We work to create a clear vision of your best self. To do so, we define who you want to be, how you want to interact with others, and what life principles and practices will make you most successful. This gives you immediate, behavioral-driven clarity and intentionality so you move forward more quickly.
- In this session our goal is to understand how much energy you have each day and how to amplify it to higher levels so you have the vibrancy and stamina needed to achieve your goals and live a fully charged life. We strive to find ways for you to gain immediate improvements in the energy you feel and generate daily.
- The goal of this session is to discuss where you feel you’ve been confident and courageous in life and in what situations you might be holding back or backing down. You receive insights and tools to help you gain confidence, decisiveness, and momentum.
- The goal of this session is to see how productive and effective you feel in life and work and to give you a set of tools and concepts to help you quickly and easily improve those areas. The focus is on helping you immediately become more effective and productive every day.
- The goal of this session is to gauge how influential you’ve felt in your relationships and career. You'll receive a few tools and learn concepts that will raise your level of action and immediately help you become more influential in your relationships and career.
- Now, at the program's half-way point, we begin to delve deeper into the six pillars of high performance: your psychology, physiology, persuasive skills, presence, and purpose.
- The goal of this session is to develop a free, consciously-directed, positively engaged mind. Simply said, you learn how to create a high-performance mindset.
- The goal of this session is to check on your energy and physiology work from Session 3. You recieve more tools to help you activate your physiology in ways that make you feel even stronger and more vibrant and that help you gain even more energy.
- The goal of this session is to review how productive you have been since we began working together so we can look at the ways in which you can become even more effective. We look carefully at how you can cut out distracting activities and, in this way, level up your ability to reach your goals.
- In this session we gauge how persuasive and influential you’ve felt in your relationships and career and target areas in which you can be more persuasive. You will learn tools to help you improve your level of persuasion so you make a positive impact.
- This is your second to last session in the program. At this point, we deep dive specifically into the topic of purpose for the first time, although this pillar of high performance underlies much of the work we have done to date. This session focuses on gauging how well you have been living and leading in a purposeful manner.
- In this final session we check in on your performance and define your best areas for commitment and discipline moving forward. These are your next steps to continue your journey to achieve your potential and fulfill your purpose. High performers are committed to lifelong discipline and mastery in the six pillars: psychology, physiology, productivity, persuasive skill, and purpose.
Praise from Past Participants
As a physician, I’m used to performing at a high level. However COVID-19 presented new challenges for me as a working mom, and I wanted to level up. I found Nina through her detailed website, and right from the start, I appreciated her timely communication and professional demeanor. She helped me navigate work obstacles, rediscover old hobbies, and create space for personal improvement. If you are wondering if Nina will understand your particular situation, I can attest that she will find common ground to help you reach your fullest potential!
Kathy Jorda, MD
Nina is an amazing High Performance Coach. She listens exceptionally well and follows any thread deep down to the cause. She helped me tremendously to identify ongoing issues that kept me from moving forward with progress. For instance, she assisted me in seeing the areas I was stuck in (time management and congruence in my relationship with my wife) and then helped me come up with action steps and follow through with consistent action. I can truly say that having a coach like Nina is a must if you are unhappy with the pace of your projects or life aspirations and if you are wanting to make progress faster and easier.
Christian Trosch, CHPC
Certified High Performance Coaching with Nina gave me skills and tools to grow my business and still feel like I had free time to play sports and go on vacations with my family. Because of my work in this program, I was equipped to handle COVID homeschooling plus a growing business with less stress than I could have ever imagined.
I have always thought of myself as a high-achiever. Throughout my life, I have been able to take on multiple goals at once and complete most of them. Yet, there were important things I wanted to do that could serve others as they seek and grow that kept falling by the wayside. When I started High Performance Coaching with Nina, I had a major AHA. Yes, I was achieving many things. But I was falling very short of "performing" at a high level, especially when it came to things that were challenging and required courage to move forward. I was busy but not focused and productive. Nina's wisdom and High Performance program was exactly the edge I needed to move forward in those areas that are closest to my heart and express who I truly am and how I want to serve others. During Nina's coaching program, I refocused my major life goals and learned how to consistently dedicate time to these in my daily life, including creating a business around coaching and writing. I cannot thank Nina enough!

Yesterday, I had the great fortune to speak with Nina to explore the possibility of participating in her High Performance Coaching through a one hour free session. The promise is that, through this coaching model, she will "help you gain clarity, energy, courage, productivity, and influence in your career as a writer as well as in your life."
As has consistently been my experience with Nina, she under-promises and over-delivers.
The result was amazing. Nina was completely engaged and gave me very specific direction in each of the promised areas. It wasn't just a sales call, as has been my experience with other coaches in the past, but an actual High Performance Coaching session! I left with a list of action items to make significant changes and a set of exercises to assist me in better performance. And it was clear that this was just the tip of the iceberg.
So here's a warning: Don't take this opportunity if you just want to whine and complain about your lack of success and aren't willing to take the steps to turn your life around.
Do call Nina immediately if you want to move from where you are right now to a life that finally meets your expectations! If you are willing to take the actions necessary to find greater meaning and material success in your life, Nina will give you the tools and encouragement to do so in her 12 week High Performance coaching package.
Fill out Nina's form today (a meaningful exercise on its own) and schedule an initial call if you are ready to change your life. You won't be disappointed.

Working with Nina Amir as my coach has helped me get to where I want to be. Each week I learned more about my strengths and weaknesses. The sessions were focused on me and forming a brand. It is much more than learning about productivity, physiology, Psychology, and Persuasion. It is about being all that you can be. Nina focused on me and pointed out possible, business mistakes that were adding work to my day.
Many CEO’s have coaches or mastermind groups, Nina Amir is one of mine.

I have been working with Nina for a year now. In those 12 months, I graduated from the Royal Ballet School, performed at the Royal Opera House in London, traveled to Switzerland, Denmark, and the Czech Republic, and was offered a full-time classical ballet contract at the Polish National Ballet in Warsaw, Poland. I began that job in January 2018. I am also about to begin an Open University degree by distance learning.
This year has been incredibly busy, and Nina has helped me think about how to improve my routines, sleep, health, relationships, so I could feel and perform at my best and didn’t waste time and energy.
Since working with Nina, my confidence as a dancer has improved massively. She has helped me see that I could move with self-assurance from the middle or back of the class to the front and show teachers and ballet masters what I can do. Thinking about the big picture, and what is the purpose of my dancing, has encouraged me to set life goals that are bigger than just 'get a contract.'
Laurence Elliott, professional dancer, Polish National Ballet
High Performance Coaching with Nina has been so valuable to me, especially during a year of massive change with both my children now working and living abroad. I thought I was going to feel so sad after my kids had flown the nest, but working with Nina has helped me feel enthusiastic about coming back to dreams I thought I had let go. I feel more ‘in control’ of my life, and have much more energy, which is benefitting my relationships with family and friends and helping me be more productive with work and volunteering. I’m even getting out of bed an hour earlier and enjoying the early mornings like never before!
Deborah Elliott, Geneologist
Nina is an outstanding coach. She helped me refine a morning routine, gain clarity on my next move, have the courage to do something big... I would gladly pay $20,000 for a monthly 1:1 with her. She held me in a safe space through a mental breakdown when my therapists and psychiatrists had no time to see me. Her method is independent of any coaches I have seen online. Nina adds tremendous value and goes over and beyond any coaches I have experienced.
