Bringing your people together in one place can be game changing. It’s a rare opportunity to unite your teams, align your strategy, and come together to commit to a new direction for the business.
High impact but cost effective approach for enabling leaders to bring to life simple, practical Olympic winning strategies to improve performance mindset, focus and collaboration.
Coaching is one of the most powerful tools that will enable our principles to become embedded in your organisation.
The very best way to see real change in your business. Clear goals set, actions agreed, and - starting at the top - a shared belief in the "crazy goal" and an understanding of how each individual plays a part in achieving it.
We help to cut through what’s in front of you so that you can focus on what’s important. This means that you really can create an organisation in which everyone clearly knows which boat they’re in – and how to make it go faster, systematically, day by day.
– they also work differently. By challenging both what they do and how they do it – and by knowing what matters most – they change how they perform, measure it, and improve. Each day, often in small increments, they focus on what will make them better at what they do.
We come with a success story. Our way of working is inspired by Ben Hunt-Davis’s amazing journey to Olympic gold in the men’s rowing Eight at Sydney 2000. Everything we do is influenced by the long, enlightened process that won that medal. It’s a tale of combined talent, supremely focused preparation and hard work. What won the race? Not just the combination of these elements, but the way in which these elements were made to work together.
This is what we relish doing: helping our clients to focus differently, imaginatively, adventurously, habitually, every day, on what matters for the best possible results.
As an organisation, it was important for us to find a partner to support us in a high performance training programme as a long term project and not just as a one off presentation at a conference. The team at Will It Make The Boat Go Faster? impressed us from day one wanting to understand our business, our vision for the future and support us in a programme that challenged everyone within the organisation to achieve our ‘Crazy’ goals.
The sessions we had with the Will It? team at our 2018 Conference were inspiring and the lessons from it are countless. I’ve heard the story twice now and both times I got something different from it – there were so many parallels to the journey we are on that at times I thought they had written it just for us! The whole programme didn’t feel formulaic – the team reacted to the moment and guided us through a very productive two-day conference. It was clear to me that the Will It? team truly care. They engaged with our team, and with me personally, and I could see that they really want to help us on our own journey.
Leader Led Training has been truly transformational within our business. The material is simple to use and not ‘another task’. My teams have really engaged with it, and many people are saying it’s one of the best things they have done in their working career.
The second you get in a rowing boat down at Dorney Lake, it changes everything. I really believe that it should be the first thing that a business does with their team before starting a programme, it was an eye-opening experience.
The process of the Crazy Goal Workshop made me realise how big an opportunity there is at Matrix. I had hugely underestimated our potential as a business, which really surprised me. Everyone loved the Crazy goal language, and the joint creation of the goal really embedded our senior decision making team in the strategy of the business. I’ve been told it was the best off-site we’ve ever done and so different from anything anyone had experienced before.
