High Performance Teaming


Recent breakthroughs in neuroscience have revealed insights into the drivers behind all human behaviour and how leaders can harness this intelligence. Rather than focusing on control, leaders can focus on the needs and motivations that sit behind human behaviour. The result of which will be significantly increased performance and a much happier team.

Our work with neuroscientists at the University of California and the University of Queensland, together with our team’s academic research from other neuroscientists around the world has been combined with the latest thinking in leadership and management to create a methodology for team building that explains an individual’s six core needs when working in a team and helps leaders to engage with individuals at both an emotional and a rational level in order to drive performance.

The High Performance Teaming process is designed to align and drive performance by applying cutting edge insights from neuroscience along with best practice management theory in a practical and engaging method. It does this by taking teams through a highly structured process to build trust, develop respect and draw on individual strengths to achieve outstanding results.


HPT Process

  • Situation Audit - one-on-one interviews with each team member and development of summary report
  • Team Foundations - workshop that explores the Six Needs of the Social Brain and then examines the Team’s Value Proposition, Team Member Roles, Healthy and Unhealthy Patterns of Behaviour and the Team’s Code of Conduct
  • Conflict Management - workshop that explores the emotional system in the brain and its impact on motivation, decision making and conflict within the team. The team gains ingisht into each other’s ‘Triggers’ and establishes a process for managing buisness-as-usual conflict
  • Strengths Utilisation - workshop that explores the rational system in the brain and how different Strategic Mindsets influence team performance. The team undertakes an assessment of how well they are utilising each other’s strengths in order to drive greater collaboration and identifies options for develiving work in a more effecrtive manner by supporting each other to play to their strengths.
