About Konstantinos

Peak Performance
Coach

Creativity, innovative thinking, ground breaking ideas or any kind of optimal response and action, is the product of an individual who is peak performing and thus using his/her capabilities at their maximum. Knowing how to do that at will, will simply make you unstoppable regardless the circumstances.

– Konstantinos Karypidis

Described as a “stage storm“, Konstantinos teaches visionaries, leaders and organisations how to prepare for the future by studying and applying the peak performance strategies bequeathed to us from some of history’s greatest minds and verified from today’s top researchers.

His goal is pretty simple and bold: To build a world where executives, instead of trying to predict the future, they are capable of peak performing at will and hence capable to deal optimally with any kind of challenges or opportunities.

Once upon a time he studied Business Administration, got his Masters Degree and began his Ph.D. in Economics, only to realise that his interest was elsewhere. For the next decade he lived as an artist, performing in streets, small stages, big theatres and on national television, writing and directing his own performances. His art was totally dedicated on what we are capable of achieving if we develop our communication and states of mind management skills.

As a result of the above, during that period, he very often received invitations for keynote speeches for a multitude of corporate events. Slowly but steadily, Konstantinos made a complete transition from the show business to the corporate world. From that point on, the next decade of his life could be summarised in three words: Meetings, Airports, Keynotes. But his mission was yet to be discovered.

A few years ago, while talking with a client, he had a stroke of inspiration. Why is everybody trying to predict the future after so many catastrophic failures, instead of focusing on building the skillset that will enable them to take advantage of any future? The idea was pretty simple: Stop trying to do what no-one can and focus on preparing to respond optimally to whatever the future will bring at your door.

Pretty simple right? Nope! Why? Because the corporate world is still under two spells.

  • The “Oracle Spell” : is the unchallenged trust in predictions (rather than rationally analysing trends where appropriate) regardless of the tremendous plethora of heartbreaking failures in the field.
  • The “New Idea Spell” : is the addiction of the corporate world to hear seemingly “new” ideas from seemingly new “innovative” thinkers.

Don’t get this the wrong way. We need to strive for new ideas, innovation and evolution in order to peak perform. However, the majority of our talents is consumed with “ideas marketing”, trying to reinvent the wheel and focused on finding alternate words to basically describe what has already been said. The foundations for peak performance have already been laid by Aristotle, Seneca, Darwin, Kant or any of the innumerable geniuses of history. These foundations have been proven over and over throughout the centuries by scholars, thinkers and practitioners alike.

That day Konstantinos made a decision. He would go back in time to research the underlying principles of peak performance throughout the centuries. So, as a “professional” bookworm, who had already spent seventeen years of his life reading anything he could put his hands on and kept precise notes, after that stroke of inspiration, he did what he was best at: He studied, analyzed and categorized all of his notes while reading new material in a quest to find an answer to the intriguing question he posed to himself.

Nowadays he travels the world sharing his findings along with his super simple message: “Know how to Peak Perform!”

Konstantinos Marinakis, Managing Director, ORIFLAME Greece
After Konstantinos’ workshop all attendants realized the potential power we possess and which unfortunately because of our ignorance on how our mind functions we are not taking advantage of. With Konstantinos being our experienced guide we all were participants in a meaningful and powerful journey to the unknown land of Mr. Brain. His thorough and deep knowledge on non-verbal communication often led us to experience with awe methods and strategies which can help us to alter our paradigms and achieve our goals.
