The New Rules For High Performance


Channelling Chaos

Is your team struggling to keep up with the pace of change?
Are you constantly being asked to achieve more but with fewer resources?
Is the modern workplace – with remote work, flexible work, and online collaboration – making it more difficult to collaborate?

The old rules for productivity, performance, and success don’t work in our fast-changing world. The world is changing too fast, jobs and careers aren’t safe, and established businesses are being disrupted by nimble start-ups.

That’s why I developed this program to help your team thrive in a fast-changing, always-on world.

If your people feel like they are living in a pinball machine, flying from one meeting to another and then back to an overflowing inbox, they simply don’t have the time to be effective.

If you want to be more productive, learn to work in flow. Accept our fast-paced, chaotic world, and learn to work with it rather than against it. If you’re on a raft in a fast-flowing river, instead of fighting the current or wishing it wasn’t going so fast, go with the flow and learn to navigate the obstacles.

The path to your goal is not a straight line, and you must accommodate the crooked path:

High-performance teams work together in four key ways:

  1. From all the external noise and internal chaos, focus on what matters most for taking action first.
  2. Work in flow, knowing how to embrace change and chaos in order to achieve their goals.
  3. Be comfortable with being flexible, so you can keep going when things change and obstacles arise.
  4. Know how to fly, with continuous improvement and growth as part of your ongoing success.

That’s how high-performance teams thrive in chaos and work together to overcome obstacles so they still achieve their goals.

The program is available in three delivery formats, each with multiple touchpoints:

  1. In-House Workshop: A one-day or two-day workshop, delivered in person at your premises (or at a suitable training venue)
  2. Online Delivery: Either one online presentation covering one of the modules/topics OR 4-5 online presentations, 1-2 weeks apart
