How does Performance Prime help to transform culture?
The culture that exists as a living part of your organization determines how individuals at all levels of the company interact, within your walls as well as beyond. Culture sets the rhythm of the activities undertaken by your employees on a day-to-day basis, both individually and collectively.
The Performance Thinking program relies on nearly 50 years of scientific research and practical experience working with high-performers from around the world.
We teach the mental framework, strategies and skills that underlie our ability to perform and provide tools to help individuals achieve a high-performance mindset, even when faced with extreme pressure.
Our proprietary ACT Model process applies performance techniques used by thousands of world-class athletes, business leaders, special forces and all other professionals looking to answer the challenges of today’s high-pressure performance environments.
“I have been using the ACT Model for over fifteen years and it has had an immensely positive impact on my professional and personal life. I highly recommend it to anyone whose job demands that they perform at a consistent level of excellence.”

Why is it important to have a real high-performance culture?
Industries on every continent are undergoing rapid transformation as the evolution of technology heralds a relentless push into a new global future. This makes high-performing team cultures more valuable than ever.
While many organizations often describe themselves as being “high-performance”, are their employees really exhibiting the attributes that truly make them high-performers? Do they understand what those attributes are and how to develop them?
The Performance Equation
The difference between success and failure is often as little as 1%. This margin is characterized by small gains that often lead to big results. This is why your 'A-game' matters and why the high-performance techniques we teach have such a meaningful impact.
Using applied scientific methodology informed by decades of real-world experience in the high-performance domain, our programs help cultivate cultures that thrive under pressure while giving people the tools to eliminate self-induced stress and anxiety.
Imagine how your company would perform if members of your team were able to reach their highest levels of individual performance when it matters most? This capacity to truly 'be on' could easily spell the difference between exceptional success and average results.
