How Do I Know Zero to Dangerous Will Work For Me?
Zero to Dangerous is based on cutting-edge research done by some of the world’s leading academic institutions…
McKinsey found a 500% increase in productivity by executives who regularly access flow states.
Harvard found subjects to have THREE DAYS of heightened creativity after the flow state.
Advanced Brain Monitoring & Darpa found subjects to have a 490% increasein skill acquisition.
The University of Sydney found subjects to have a 430% increase in creative problem solving!
We’ve used our methodology with 25,000+ clients and taught it to 250,000+ students. It’s proven to work.
