The High Performance IndicatorTM (often called the "HPI," "HPI-II" or "HP-36") is a professional performance scale used to measure the factors that matter most in predicting individual high performance, as defined as long-term success. Over 100 human performance variables are analyzed in six key categories that were proven to relate to a person’s long-term success potential in the largest and most comprehensive high performance studies ever conducted. The scale was developed by Brendon Burchard, High Performance Institute researchers and graduates from the Master of Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) program at the University of Pennsylvania. 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 with over a decade in the field. 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.
Measuring High Performance: The High Performance Indicator Development and Validation
High performers actively seek clarity on who they want to be, what they want to accomplish, and how they will achieve it. They are clear about their goals and passions. They have a clear vision of what they will achieve in life and how they will do it. High performers consistently seek clarity as times change and as they take on new projects or enter new social situations.
High performers generate energy so that they can maintain consistent focus and effort throughout each day. They actively care for their bodies and minds to ensure that they can sustain high levels of energy over the long- term. This translates into greater physical energy, mental stamina, and positive emotions.
