Mind | Body | Spirit
Put simply, we are a group of learners aimed towards redefining high performance of the mind, body, and spirit.
What HP3 will accomplish:
We aim to continue structuring and nurturing a fellowship whose aim is to improve daily performance and competence in all of our "chosen" roles by developing a learning, accomplishment-oriented mind, a healthy body, and a virtuous spirit.
-Dr. Lee Thayer
HP3’s main purpose is to bring together groups of distinguished business executives and serve as the catalyst for cultivating the necessary thinking that Leadership requires. Leaving your status or title at the door, members must share the desire to learn, re-learn, and unlearn ways of thinking to create improved performance for other business leaders in their community.
Asking yourself, and others, thought provoking questions is the foundation to improve performance.
The leadership potential that is created by placing 12 - 15 business minds in the same room is enormous. Ask them the necessary questions, challenge their current mental models, and educate them on research proven nutritional and lifestyle habits that will optimize their cognitive capacity, and you unleash that existing potential. In regards to improving performance, the interdependence of the Mind and Body creates an environment that allows for improved thinking, which then enables better choices. With it, comes increased energy, performance potential, more restful sleep, and a calmness that accompanies the new meaning that you attach to “stress”.
The role of the member is to forever be in the “Learning Mode.” What enabled you to get where you are, currently, may be holding you back from becoming what you need to be. Each member will define and uphold themselves to their own "Performance Plan". The role of HP3’s facilitators is to continually challenge the members’ thinking, while keeping the most important measurements on the forefront. Whether limitations exist regarding financial growth, leading others, cause and purpose, or existing health paradigms, HP3’s facilitators serve only to promote growth and foster continual self-learning in its members.
Their commitment is to create efficacious Organizational Leaders that exemplify the necessary traits: a learning, accomplishment-oriented mind, a healthy body, and a virtuous spirit.
HP3 Monthly Gatherings are aimed at stimulating thinking, framing issues, guiding decentered perspective, and ensuring the necessary accountability by redefining and questioning meaning. Accountability drives action; Action drives growth, and there is no stasis.
If you aren’t growing, you’re dying.
“Soon” is not a time, “Later” is not a plan, and “Hope” is not a method. Are you currently on a path of creating your own Destiny? How will you know if you are successful? What are you currently measuring to determine success or failure?
HP3 focuses on the necessary Thinking, that can take a Human Being and create a Human “Doing”

Chris Comeaux (KO-mo) is an award-winning expert and lifelong student on leadership and the performance
required to truly be a leader. He has spent his life and career researching, learning, coaching, and implementing
the pushes and pulls necessary to create high performance leaders and high performance organizations. Chris’s
stated life purposes are twofold: 1) Through his work he helps shape and impact thousands of leaders in various
industries and impacts them to live to their full potential. 2) Through his work he helps transform the way the
future of healthcare is provided in the United States and later the world. Chris truly strives to live his life purpose every day in his various roles he plays.
Chris also has become nationally known as leader in our country’s hospice and palliative care industry, where he has spent a large portion of his career as President/CEO of Four Seasons in western North Carolina, a 2009 American Hospital Association Circle of Life Award Winner. Under his leadership, Four Seasons experienced phenomenal growth beginning in 2002: in four years, its census increased from 30 patients per day to over 1,000 per day. In 2005, the Carolinas Center for Hospice and End of Life Care honored him with the Peter Keese Leadership Award.
In 2006, Chris left Four Seasons for two years to build an alliance between the prestigious national healthcare consulting firm, the Studer Group, and Covenant Hospice in Pensacola. The vision was to transform, develop,
and grow leaders throughout the hospice and palliative care world. Chris grew this venture from its infancy to an established coaching firm partnering with post-acute healthcare organizations from New York to California. He returned to Four Seasons in 2008 to apply what he learned in the trenches on leadership to an organization he knew and loved, and in many respects Four Seasons became, and still is, a learning laboratory for high performance- which is a journey and not a destination.
