Learn more about our model, science & app

For elite athletes, the gap between current performance & potential performance is determined by CORE skills.

The CORE Skills

These are the pillars of performance.

All our programmes, 1:1 coaching & coaching app & platform follows a three-step process.

  1. Goals & Baseline: to make progress, we first have to know where are we going & where are we at.
  2. Plan & Coach: we build a development plan & match you with a coach. You meet weekly with your coach & are connected 24/7.
  3. Measure & Evaluate: using our technology, we’ll measure your progress & evaluate your plan, making adjustments as we go.
  • Goal: define a SMART goal that describes the desired change. 
  • Reality: baseline where we are currently at & understand “the gap”. 
  • Options: what actions could we take to close the gap.
  • Way Forward: what actions will we take, what are the obstacles & what is the level of desire.
  • Execution: take action in the real-world & apply learning.
  • Reflection: what worked, what didn’t & what did we learn.

We focus on the CORE skills that drive the biggest results fast. We focus on:

  • Situations: we use real-world situations people deal with everyday as the “learning container”. This makes learning relevant & applicable. 
  • Foundations: our core identity & what drives us, mental energy, physical activity, sleep & recovery, nutrition & movement.
  • Mindsets: our beliefs & ways of thinking drive our behaviour. We foster mindsets that drive target behaviour & supports the execution of CORE skills.
  • Mental Skills: the behaviours that impact and drive our performance at work and transform the way we manage situations.

Work with a dedicated coach who helps you develop new skills.

Typically you’ll meet with your coach once per week and be in contact via phone / chat in between sessions.

Your coach is your guide & dedicated to supporting your development.

Each week your coach creates a personalised learning programme that drives you forward. These micro-lessons & actions can be performed in 10 minutes or less.

Micro-lessons are structured around Scenarios, Mindsets, Skills & Foundations that boost your CORE skills. We prompt you to take action, offering daily tips and reminders, gently nudging you in the right direction.

We put a coach in your pocket, connecting you directly with your coach for on-demand support.

The Coaching App ensures you have the support you need to make progress.

We draw on the latest behaviour change research as well as our own experience leading high-performing teams.
