We help turn business strategy into reality by developing people’s mindsets to think and act as athletes do, empowering them to deliver
We use lessons and principles from sport to help teams set motivating goals and then work skilfully with each other to deliver work of the highest quality
We work with you as an individual to develop your mindset like an elite athlete to deliver challenging objectives that align with both your business and personal career goals.
Businesses are great at setting ambitious goals and strategies, but strategies are only as good as their execution. Ambitious business goals often get forgotten in the challenges of day to day business as we neglect a step by step plan to deliver them, and/or review progress regularly enough.
That’s like an athlete saying they want to run a specific marathon time without having a plan to get there, then going through the process with no attention to how they are actually progressing or adjusting the plan in response to that progress. No one would do that, would they?
The discipline of Psychology recognises human performance (defined as growth and development in practice), is achieved by setting difficult, challenging targets that are met by carefully working to a process that ticks off separate milestones along the way.
For people in business to perform at high levels over a sustained period, we develop them to think and act in the same way as athletes.
We are a team of skilled coaches, psychologists and elite athletes that help turn business visions and plans into measurable reality.
What we do: We train individuals and teams as we would train sportsmen and women to help them to;
We do this using evidence based methods that have worked with elite sportspeople via workshops and 1-1 sessions. We use principles from sport and human performance to provide facilitation on the business strategy vision and goal alignment but crucially we take our work all the way through to practical deployment as practical deployment is where the gains can be made. Improved staff productivity, improved staff retention/turnover, better teamwork/communication, less sickness days, client retention and client NPS and ultimately profitability are all expected outcomes.
