Case Studies

This was the problem. This is how we fixed it.

We helped a small start up hedge fund grow from 30 million in management to 330 million in 2 years by helping the leadership develop a culture of optimal performance throughout their team that enhanced engagement, improved performance and accelerated grwoth.

We began by interviewing the leadership team.  Assessing their strengths and weaknesses and then designing a competency based training program based on the results of their assessments.  We then taught them the science, psychology, skills and strategies of optimal performance that were most relevent to their needs.  We supported them as they implemented their strategy.

The performance of any company is dependent on the performance of the individuals who run the company, whether they hold Leadership positions or not.

We helped the senior management of a large media company identify and resolve confusion and conflict which had been preventing decisions from being made, causing stress and resentment, preventing productivity and seriously hurting the bottom line.

We did this first interviewing the leadership team, understanding and identifying the cause of their concerns then by teaching the science, psychology skills and strategies of optimal communication, conflict resolution and collaboration we were able to eliminate the conflict and confusion, improve cohesion and transform the ability of the leadership to collaborate

We designed and delivered an Executive Performance Master Class Series for leadership potential people in a large international merchant bank.  

The program helped the participants learn all they needed to know and do to achieve greater performance through enhanced collaboration, communication, problem solving and influencing strategies. 

The content of the programs were built on the science, psychology skills and strategies of optimal performance. 

The results were better than we had hoped.  Participants improved across all 5 critical performance areas and become more confident, more capable and more effective at delivering better, faster, more efficient results with less stress and waste in time,  money and effort.
