The Performance Engine

Shifting Mindsets, Powering Change

It’s time to disrupt the status quo. Ignite your organization to make change.

To truly transform your organization you have to fundamentally change the way your people think. And that’s hard…but not impossible.

The Performance Engine is a unique and immersive experience designed to dramatically shift the mindsets of long-tenured employees and give them the skills they need to positively disrupt the status quo.

It starts with a two-day immersive experience - The Accelerator - in which participants are charged with solving a frustrating problem for an organization that feels remarkably like their own. In this unscripted environment, individual behaviors and organizational culture emerge and strengths and roadblocks to change are identified.

Mind-sets are shifted and new capabilities are built in the areas of:

  • Active Agility
  • Customer-Centric Design
  • Engineered Simplicity
  • Digital Connectivity
  • 10X innovation

The team challenges assumptions, visualizes what “could be” and develops confidence and passion for new ways of thinking. With a new problem-solving model in place, participants apply the lessons from The Accelerator to a persistent challenge in their own organization and design a fully operational pilot in 30 days.
