I used a peak performance coach who worked with Google and Berkshire Hathaway—and it actually helped me

When I got the pitch to interview an executive coach on his method to develop high performers, I was skeptical — I get these types of emails weekly. It seems like everyone is some sort of executive/life/spiritual coach today. But Eric Frazer isn’t your average peak performance coach, or as he likes to say, “peak performance expert.” I was intrigued that Frazer has helped major corporations such as Google, Berkshire Hathaway Home Services (Berkshire’s real estate arm) and Cisco hire and find high-performers using his background in clinical and positive psychology. (He was a post-doctoral psychology fellow at Yale University School of Medicine, holds a doctoral degree in clinical forensic psychology at the Miami Institute of Psychology and has a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Fordham University.) Frazer, who founded his company Top Talent Psychology, two years ago, also coaches executives and entrepreneurs seeking to optimize their performance. Typically, one-on-one sessions with Frazer cost $250 an hour and up.

To see what peak performance coaching is all about, Frazer worked with me at no cost for a month. We did three sessions a week for an hour. Here’s what I learned.

Finding your ‘core battle’

According to Frazer, a key to success, and ultimately peak performance, is to identify your “core battle,” as he calls it, which is, in essence, your “hero’s journey” (an evolution toward greatness made famous by author Joseph Campbell). You must identify and realize what your top talents are, and figure out how to actualize your true professional potential in a way that brings fulfillment. To do that, Frazer says it is important to identify what you believe are your top skills and how you ultimately want to use them in your career. This will also help identify what is holding you back. To find my core battle, Frazer asked me what areas in my life I’m currently happy with and not happy with, and who I ultimately want to be. I told him I’m generally happy but wanted to do more in my career and work on bigger stories and projects. He also asked me pointed questions like: 1. What am I truly most passionate about in regards to reporting? For me, it’s health, environmental issues and learning the inner workings of the food system. 2. What keeps me up at night, or what do I obsessively think about during the day? I think about the fact that I need to be doing more to challenge myself at work. How can I take on bigger stories and bigger interviews while maintaining my day-to-day workflow? 3. What could your professional life look like in two years? My answer: Being a successful journalist who reports on long-form features that inspire and educate others about health, wellness and environmental issues. 4. What am I afraid of? Not being successful. Failure. Frazer then asked me about my daily work habits. After talking for nearly an hour, Frazer determined that I was like most of his clients: I tend to have many moments of “high-performance” but it’s not sustained. When I’m passionate about a subject or topic, for example, I obsess over it — as a CNBC Make It senior reporter this could be landing an interview with a major CEO or drawing attention to an issue that hasn’t been widely reported in the media. But if I’m not inspired, I can coast. Frazer also determined that several things hold me back. Some of the things that prevent me from reaching my potential are logistical: For example, in order to break big stories or land exclusive interviews, I need to actively pursue leads and subjects on a daily basis, not just when I remember to follow up. Others are the stories I tell myself. For example, I said a lack of time was preventing me from going after bigger stories, when that’s just an excuse. And then there are my problematic beliefs, broader “themes” Frazer calls them. We discovered that I have a fear of disappointing others and myself. While I do have high expectations of myself, deep down I am a little fearful that if I really go for it and fail, I would find out that I’m not as good as I thought was. It also became clear that for a long time I have pushed aside that little voice telling me to pursue certain stories or take bigger risks in my storytelling so that my life feels manageable.

An action plan

Having pinpointed what I want and what’s holding me back, Frazer emailed me an “action plan.” For motivation, Frazer had me identify an A-list of people I’d like to interview. Since my early days at CBS News, I have always kept a shortlist of people I wanted to pursue, but it definitely needed to be refreshed. Frazer said the list would help me feel more fulfilled — on slower days, I can turn to it to help create momentum and feel inspired. The action plan also included an exercise to visualize exactly how I saw each interview go and what questions I would ask. Then I journaled about it each night. I also had to seek out mentors to help me with my fear of disappointment and to get a better idea of what others think of my work performance. I tracked down two former bosses I admire to get their insights on my past performance, where I could improve and where they believe I thrive. They made me see my fear of disappointing others was something I invented. They said I have always been a high-performer and they didn’t view me as a “coaster.” So really it’s my own thoughts of failing that are preventing me from pursuing certain interviews or controversial topics. To help me with creativity, Frazer had me book a “float session” in an isolation tank (it’s filled with at least 10 inches of water and enough dissolved Epsom salt to allow a person to float) at a spa. He said the relaxed experience could help me unlock new ideas. During my first hour-long float session, it took me about 20 minutes to fully feel relaxed inside the tank. It didn’t help me have any new ideas, but it did help me clear my head. With regard to exercise, Frazer suggested using my outdoor runs to think and to do so without music for focus. As for my habits, Frazer helped me create a new workflow, breaking down my “to-do” lists each day into small, actionable steps and creating deadlines for each task. For example, I should look at my list of ideal interviews every day and make phone calls or write emails to follow up, spend time researching topics related to each subject or add new targets to the list. This Frazer says, will help me stay accountable on projects that are important to me and my growth and make them more manageable.

Bottom line

After filling in Frazer on my progress, he told me that he could hear in my voice that I was excited about pursuing the new interviews and projects I had come up with. And I felt it too. I felt energized and focused after working with Frazer for only a few weeks. I also found it empowering to bounce my ideas off someone who isn’t a friend or family member, who could give me real feedback and help me navigate the pros and cons of my career aspirations. Since working with Frazer, I have maintained my list of target interviews, which I update every other day. Additionally, I continue to journal daily about my goals and create short-term actionable steps to pursue them. Frazer encouraged me to continue reconnecting with mentors, to find other techniques that will help me stay relaxed and to focus on my goals.

Only 15% of Americans can identify Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in a photo

Do you know who this man is?

Despite being CEO of one of the most well-known tech companies in the world and having 4.2 million Twitter followers, only 15% of 4,272 adults who answered a Pew Research Center survey about digital knowledge were able to identify Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey from a photo.

The survey question asked people who the “technology leader” photographed was and presented a few multiple-choice options. The selections included high-profile founders such as Elon Musk, co-founder of Telsa, as well as Google co-founder Sergey Brin and Uber co-founder Travis Kalanick.

A whopping 77% of people said they didn’t know Dorsey, while 7% guessed incorrectly. This question yielded the most amount of “unsure” responses in the entire survey.

When the data were further broken down, 23% of survey respondents who had a bachelor’s degree or higher were able to clock Dorsey in the photo. Age was another factor that influenced their awareness: 20% of those ages 18 to 29 answered correctly, compared to only 7% of people ages 65 and up.

The photo in question was from Dorsey’s April 2019 TED Talk. In it, he’s wearing a black beanie, and has a long beard.

Dorsey was the only tech leader respondents were asked to identify. But those surveyed also lacked knowledge about other prominent social media platforms. Only 29% of Americans knew that messaging app WhatsApp and Instagram are owned by Facebook, for example.

The rest of the survey contained more general questions about internet use. For example, the survey asked people how “private browsing” works, what “net neutrality” means and what two-factor authentication looks like on a web page.

Younger adults (defined as 18 to 29) answered more questions correctly than those in the 65-plus group, suggesting that they might be more internet literate.

These findings are part of a larger Pew Research Center survey called the American Trends Panel.

Ex-FDA chief McClellan says ‘regulatory structures’ weren’t in place to identify vaping crisis earlier

Ex-FDA chief McClellan says 'regulatory structures' weren't in place to identify vaping crisis earlier

Former FDA Commissioner Mark McClellan told CNBC on Monday that the regulatory agency did not yet have the structures in place to identify the vaping epidemic among youths earlier.

McClellan said former FDA chief Scott Gottlieb, who left the office earlier this year, had tried over the last couple of years to put a more “aggressive regulatory structure in place” for use of e-cigarettes.

“It takes a few years … to get regulatory structures in place that can monitor use, tell companies exactly what they need to do for products to be determined safe enough and appropriate enough for use,” McClellan said on “Closing Bell.”

McClellan’s comments come as the e-cigarette industry and the FDA are under heightened scrutiny amid an outbreak of a mysterious lung disease linked to vaping. At least 12 people have died across 10 states from the illness, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Health officials still don’t know exactly what is making people sick.

Amazon said this week its facial recognition software can detect a person’s fear.

Rekognition is one of many Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud services available for developers. It can be used for facial analysis or sentiment analysis, which identifies different expressions and predicts emotions from images of people’s faces. The service uses artificial intelligence to “learn” from the reams of data it processes.

The tech giant revealed updates to the controversial tool on Monday that include improving the accuracy and functionality of its face analysis features such as identifying gender, emotions and age range.

“With this release, we have further improved the accuracy of gender identification,” Amazon said in a blog post. “In addition, we have improved accuracy for emotion detection (for all 7 emotions: ‘Happy’, ‘Sad’, ‘Angry’, ‘Surprised’, ‘Disgusted’, ‘Calm’ and ‘Confused’) and added a new emotion: ‘Fear.'”

Your iPhone will soon be able to identify dogs and cats thanks to Apple's new detector

A new feature in an upcoming version of Apple’s iOS will enable iPhones to look at images and identify which parts of that picture are cats or dogs.

The software, called VNAnimalDetector, basically draws a digital rectangle around any part of a photograph containing an animal and labels it as either a cat or dog.

The software shows Apple’s continued efforts to take complicated and tricky machine learning techniques, and package them as part of the iPhone operating system.

It also emphasizes Apple’s large investment into computer vision, a subset of computer science that focuses on enabling cameras and other sensors to “see” and understand the real world. Computer vision is also a core underlying technology for self-driving cars and augmented reality glasses.

The detector also suggests that Apple is very aware of how many pictures of their fuzzy friends iPhone users take. Apple’s Photos app has been able to identify cats and dogs from user photos since 2016.

The software is part of Apple’s Vision framework, which gives developers tools for image recognition, and it isn’t intended for end users. Instead, the Vision framework is designed to be built into apps. Apple also built a detector for humans, which can take an image as input, and draw rectangles around any people in the picture.

It was previously possible to identify cats or people using machine learning. Lots of computer scientists and big companies have made pet detectors in the past. But VNAnimalDetector makes it easier to build into apps, in as little as four lines of code, according to a presentation at Apple’s annual developer’s conference earlier this month.

Other new advancements in the Vision framework include the ability to identify whether two images are similar, additional facial recognition abilities and the ability to identify which objects are in a photo, even if they’re not pets.

Additional technical information about the Vision API is available on Apple’s website. Additional cat photos can be found all over the internet.

Twitter launches political ad tracking tools in Europe ahead of key EU polls

Twitter on Tuesday rolled out tools in Europe which will make it easier for voters to identify political campaign ads tied to crucial European Parliament elections in May amidst fears of Russian disinformation campaigns and threats of regulatory action.

Social networks such as Twitter and Facebook have come under pressure to do more to combat fake news and the spread of extremism and propaganda online. The European Union is concerned about Russia’s role. Russia has repeatedly denied any such actions.

Twitter said its political campaigning ads policy, introduced during the U.S. midterm elections, will also be launched in India and Australia, both of which are also heading to the polls.

In essence it means that anyone can view ads put on Twitter endorsing a party or a candidate on its Ads Transparency Center, with details on billing information, ad spending and demographic targeting data. The ads will be available indefinitely.

A visual label and disclaimer information on promoted content will allow users to identify political campaign ads and who paid for them.

“Our political campaigning ads policy is being expanded to cover #EUElections2019, providing the general public with an additional layer of insight into who is running a political campaign ad on Twitter,” the company said in a blog post.

It said candidates or organisations will have to go through a certification process with proof of identity before they can run political campaigning ads on its site. This policy will kick off on March 11.

Airlines to add nonbinary gender options for tickets

Airlines are planning to present travelers who don’t identify as either male or female more options when they book their flights.

Airlines for America, an industry group that represents some of the largest U.S. carriers, including American Airlines, JetBlue Airways and Alaska Airlines, and the International Air Transport Association, which represents most of the world’s airlines, recently approved standards for nonbinary passenger identification.

The changes aim to bring airlines in line with nonbinary identification cards so that travelers’ reservations match their IDs. Several states including California and Oregon offer nonbinary options on identification cards and other documents.

United Airlines in the coming weeks will allow travelers to choose from four options when they book their tickets: male, female, undisclosed and unspecified. Travelers who do not identify with a gender will be able use the tile “Mx,” said Maddie King, a United spokeswoman. The measures aim to ensure that “all of our customers feel comfortable and welcome no matter how they self-identify, which is why we will begin offering our customers the ability to select the gender with which they most closely identify during the booking process.”

Delta Air Lines, which is not a member of the trade group, said in a statement that it plans to add a nonbinary gender option to its booking page. Southwest Airlines is considering adding the option as well.

Ahead of the annual gathering of business, political and cultural leaders, Klaus Schwab, executive chairman of the Geneva-based WEF, told reporters in Davos: “We have to define a new approach to globalization which is more inclusive.”

“Globalization produces winners and losers and there are many more winners in the last 24, 25, 30 years — but now we have to look after the losers, after those who have been left behind,” Schwab said Tuesday.
