Performance psychology

Our performance psychology work spans sport, military and corporate environments at the highest level. We apply evidenced-based principles of neuroscience, cognitive psychology and behavioural science to optimise human performance.

In particular we deeply consider the role of the brain in problem solving, moral decision-making, learning and memory, emotions, stress, positive relationships, meaning and accomplishment.

In much of our work we apply core principles from the following fields and subject matter expertise;

positive psychology

Leveraging the work of Keyes, Petersen, Seligman and Csikszentmihalyi among others provides powerful insights into the psychology of positive emotions, engagement, positive relationships, meaning, accomplishment, wellbeing and human flourishing.

complexity science

Our experience in high performance and VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity & ambiguity) contexts in professional and elite sport, and military environments helps us to enable leaders and their teams to deliver under extreme pressure.


Being able to identify the drivers of intrinsic motivation is usually the most effective path for engagement, commitment and increased discretionary effort. Our work is always mindful of the power and impact of Decci and Ryan’s self-determination theory of human motivation.​

ecological systems

Leveraging the work of Uri Brofenbrenner and Elliot Jaques enables us to map an effective leadership architecture of the organisation from existing contexts to future desired states and to co-develop (with our clients) systems of human performance optimisation

solution-focused coaching

All great leaders have the capacity to coach their teams for engagement, context, development, all of which lead to higher levels of performance. Our work in the coaching space is well informed by Professor Anthony Grant who’s work we greatly admire. (Sadly, Professor recently passed away).
