Think of your people as corporate athletes...
If there is one quality that leaders seek for themselves and their employees, it is sustained high performance in the face of ever-increasing pressure, change and competitiveness. Search for methods that deliver performance are often fruitless.
We believe that many approaches only have part of the picture: financial rewards and bonuses, management by objectives, structural approaches like aligning strategy and plans.
The problem with most approaches, we believe, is that they deal with people only from the neck up, connecting high performance primarily with cognitive capacity and capability. In recent years there has been a growing focus on the relationship between emotional intelligence and high performance.
There is also the dimension of purpose and indeed higher purpose beyond revenue and profit; the deeper values of the organisation and people within it and how they effect performance. Even more relevant in the current climate where people are raising the issue of ethics in business.
Very few focus on the influence of physical capacities. Both of the physical capacities and capabilities of the team and the physical environment within which the people operate.
A successful approach to sustained high performance, the research shows, should integrate these components and consider the individual and the organisation as a whole.
Therefore our approach to working with you on the subject of performance focuses on bringing these components into play.
