If you ask Christian Santiago how to become a ‘Kingdom High Performer’ that people want to follow, he will advise you that there are six key high-performance habits you need to adopt to find success: clarity, energy, necessity, productivity, influence and courage. The former pastor is the founder of The Greatness Institute, which guides high-achieving and faith-driven entrepreneurs and business executives to find their optimal levels of performance, both professionally and personally, so they can become the leaders people are inspired by to take their lives to the next level.
Santiago has built notoriety and a solid reputation among some of the most-prominent and business elite via his teachings. With a laundry list of publications and e-courses at his disposal, entrepreneurs and business leaders are flocking to learn his ways. In fact, his clientele has a combined net worth of $369 million and rising.
Among his top coaching insights, a few standouts are 8 Biblical Pillars of Rapid Transformation, 6 Keys of the Kingdom and 6 High-Performance Habits. He has also written three books, including Born To Rule: Reclaiming Your God-Given Birthright To Rule On Earth. Additionally, he also has vast experience in ghostwriting for executives and companies too.
Brendon Burchard and his high-performance research team conducted a science-backed study as the basis on which the six levels of high performance were recognized. The results were calculated as part of an exhaustive interview process that included 90,000 coaching sessions, and two million students, all of which spanned across 198-different countries.
Having mastered these habits, Santiago created his own series of distinctions, which align with his biblical principles and past experiences, knowledge and skills, to found his 6 High-Performance Habits of ‘Kingdom High Performance’.
The Road to Being a Kingdom High Performer
Many may not know that most high-achieving and highly successful entrepreneurs, executives, and investors want to be the top authority in their respective fields and niches. However, many of them sometimes feel disconnected from themselves, including not having a plan for the future, as well as suffering through self-limiting beliefs, thoughts and insecurities.
Helping these high-profile business leaders, via a series of clarity sessions, while guiding them to find a clear vision as to who they are, where they’re going and what they want to be known or remembered for is at the heart of Santiago’s mission. This is why he has built such a devoted following and network of like-minded people and Christian business leaders, along with his coaches, to help improve client lives across the board, making the culture at their companies even better than before as well.
“No one is stuck in the situation they are in. Each of us can experience a breakthrough in a moment that changes everything. In my coaching sessions, most clients experience at least one ‘aha’ moment every time we meet,” said Santiago. “If people awaken to who they really are and what they have inside of them, they can always shift every area of their life for the better.”
Santiago strives to help people get the most out of their skillset and what is already inside them. Hence, the six high-performance habits and his take on each one.
When it comes to clarity, this is an important one for high performers. That is because it speaks to who they are and, most importantly, who they will become. According to Santiago, clarity is seeing what is required from them at the present moment and how to reach the next level.
“Without clarity on who God wants them to become, there’s only room for confusion and burnout,” said Santiago. “This is because there’s no meaning attached to their success.”
The Burchard study found that 5% of people are 40% more likely to exercise at least four times each week. Hence, energy and its importance. This habit, if mastered, will help make high performers better across the board, including mentally, emotionally and spiritually. What Santiago found was that when the spiritual component is activated, people’s energy levels in the other three areas above rise up to dynamic levels.
Possessing a must-complete mentality, making it a priority rather than a preference is where necessity comes in. This makes high performers more advanced than average performers.
“Necessity is raised when they operate out of their God-given obsession, rather than their fleeting passion,” stated Santiago.
Being able to allocate one’s time properly and optimizing a Prolific Quality Output (PQO), while being able to complete projects with laser focus speaks to productivity in high performers.
The ability to influence comes naturally to a high performer. They do this with the ability to teach and lead others, challenge them to grow and maintain a stable mindset and also serve as a role model too.
Lastly, courage is, according to Santiago, the backbone of the six habits because high performers are in tune with their inner conversations and allow them to make projects into a reality. High performers, as a result, are not fearful in making bold moves and people will follow their lead.
“This habit really requires them to lean into faith, as operating out of courage will require a greater trust in God than ever before,” Santiago said.
It is important to remember that one does not have to focus on each of the six high-performance habits at a time because, if performed correctly, each will fall into place. Santiago believes that entrepreneurs and executives will then inspire others to follow their lead and thrive.
