We help smart leaders build extraordinary workplaces



Thank you for your interest in my Breakthrough Performance Accelerator pilot program. 

Please keep in mind: we can only accept 10 clients on a first come, first served basis. We’re deliberately keeping this pilot small so we can give those participating extensive one-on-one attention so they achieve monumental results. Once 10 clients have enrolled, we'll need to stop accepting applications.

To recap: I designed this program for people who want science-based strategies for freeing up their time and elevating their performance—but are simply too busy to read articles and watch a course. They want an expert that can objectively look at the way they’re working, give them intelligent best practices to save them time, and help them tackle challenges the moment they crop up.

What kind of challenges do we help clients solve?

  • How to focus and get tasks done without being distracted by other things happening in the office or in your inbox

  • How to improve the "life" side of the work-life equation by eliminating the constant need to work at home during the evening and weekends

  • How to set clear boundaries with a boss, client or colleague

  • How to break down an important project or meet a critical deadline

  • How to think more strategically when prioritizing your To Do list

  • Plus, many other challenges that get in the way of performing at your best

Do these issues sound familiar? 

Well, they are exactly the kind of challenges a coach can help you solve in a way that a “one-size-fits-all” workshop, podcast or book simply can’t. After all, no matter how valuable these information sources may be, they are developed for a broad, general audience. They don’t factor in your unique obstacles, personality, and goals.

Working with a coach, you get fast, customized advice that addresses YOUR unique challenges.  

Your coach analyzes the specifics of your situation, offers science-based strategies that have been shown to work, and helps you problem-solve and implement actionable strategies, collaborating with you until you achieve results.

Simply put: If you want to start feeling in control of your workload (and your life), and you want to stop reacting to distractions and other people’s demands all day long, you’ll achieve fast, powerful results with this program.

Here’s How the Breakthrough Performance Accelerator Works


As I mentioned in my email, this is a unique opportunity for you to work privately with a peak performance expert on my team. And let me tell you: the coaches on my team are remarkable. To become part of the ignite80 team, you need to be a certified coaching professional who has at least a decade of experience working directly with CEOs and top executives. Then, you need to complete months of training with me on the science of top performance. Simply put, you'll be working with the best of the best.

Here’s our process for helping you break through major challenges, free up your time, and get more done:

  • Proprietary assessment to pinpoint your biggest opportunities. We’ll begin by getting a clear snapshot of where you are right now. My team and I have developed a proprietary tool called the Peak Performance Diagnostic for gauging people’s behaviors, beliefs and habits. We use it to evaluate a client’s biggest opportunities for quickly enhancing their performance, and uncovering counterproductive tendencies that may be holding them back. 

    I use the Peak Performance Diagnostic with all my private coaching clients because it saves hours of analysis and pinpoints quick wins they can leverage to perform at their best. We’re going to begin by having you take the assessment. Then, we’ll walk you through exactly what we found—and how you can leverage these insights to immediately improve your performance.

  • Two laser coaching calls each month, whenever you need them. Laser coaching calls are highly-focused, solution-centered sessions of about 30 minutes each. Instead of clogging up your calendar with long, “exploratory” calls with no agenda, we’ve discovered that on-demand laser coaching works far better for busy professionals.

    Each session tackles a specific challenge getting in the way of your performance. Calls are scheduled when you need them and you choose the topic. For example: you need a plan for tackling next week’s project deadline, you need a system for staying on top of email without allowing it to hijack your focus, you need advice on how to better manage your evenings. Any of these topics (and lots, lots more) are excellent uses for your session.

  • Unlimited guidance from your coach over email. Have an urgent issue come up and can’t set aside time for a call? Your coach is available to help. Send your coach an email and receive a response within 24 hours. 

Over the course of 3 months (starting in September), you'll work with your coach in much the same way as I work with my personal CEO clients, and experience all of the benefits of having a customized, step-by-step, science-based expert advising you on maximizing your performance.

Joining the Program


Now, you’re probably wondering about the investment required to join this program. 

When I work with clients directly, the cost of a 3 month engagement ranges between $25,000 to $50,000. But, as I mentioned in my email, my goal here is to make this offering accessible to a wider audience. And so, here, you’ll only pay a fraction of that price.

For this pilot ONLY, the investment to join the Breakthrough Performance Accelerator pilot for 3 months is $1,495.

Considering that my corporate clients pay upward of 25 times that amount, this is an unusually good value.

Plus, if this program is helping you achieve powerful results and you’d like to keep going, you will be able to continue working with your coach for another 3 months at the same discounted pilot rate (no matter what price we end up charging for the program). Of course, there is no requirement to continue and you can stop at any time.

An Important Bonus


There’s one other thing that I need to tell you about and it’s an important BONUS.

As part of the Breakthrough Performance Accelerator pilot, my coaches have access to all of ignite80’s educational programs. I’ve asked them to share any content we have available that can help our coaching clients address their challenges, at no additional cost.

In other words, if you join this program you will also receive free access to any of my training programs, depending on the strategies your coach ends up recommending.

That includes the Peak Performance Formula, The Sleep Advantage, the Peak Work Performance Summit, and Own Your Workday.

That's a value of roughly $3,600 and it’s part of the all-inclusive approach we practice with our coaching clients.

How to Apply


The Breakthrough Performance Accelerator pilot program begins on Tuesday, September 10th and we’re accepting applications now, with every expectation that this program will sell out quickly.

Because we are only accepting 10 clients, we want to make sure that everyone we accept into the program is a good fit. And so, if you’d like to join, there are two things you need to do.

First, visit this checkout page and place a $150 deposit to save your spot. This deposit is 100% refundable—it’s simply there to ensure that you are serious about joining this program. Once your deposit is accepted, you’ll receive an email inviting you to book a call with me. We’ll get on a call together to make sure we’re a good fit.

If either of us decides that this program is not a fit, your deposit is returned to you.

Here is where you can book your spot:

Just a reminder: Enrollment will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. There is no enrollment deadline and the spots will be filled by the first eligible candidates.

With all of that said, I very much look forward to working with you *if* this program is the right fit for you.

How does coaching accelerate success?
Hear from some of our clients:


"I feel like I have learned more tangible, actionable tactics out of my work with Ron, about how to work day-to-day, than I did at Harvard Business School."

– Manisha Thakor, MBA Harvard

"I decided to join the Breakthrough Performance Coaching because it didn't feel tenable what I was doing before. It felt like it was an avalanche of everything, and it was taking over. I've seen the biggest improvements in being more in charge of my time, having a better sense of how to go at the next day.
