Everyone likes the notion of high performance – for themselves, for their teams and for their organisations. In today’s competitive and demanding marketplace it’s an expectation. But it’s an expectation that’s complicated by constantly changing organisational direction; by individuals, teams working remotely with less supervision; and by the need to keep customers and clients happy no matter what might sink you below the waterline.
…you could discover how to keep yourself at a higher level of performance, for longer, and be equipped and confident to deal with the inevitable setbacks that will come your way? And to work with others to create a high performing environment for your team and your organisation to succeed.
Over the past seven years at Will It Make The Boat Go Faster?, we’ve used proven Olympic winning strategies, our High Performance Principles and Performance Accelerators to deliver success for individuals, teams and organisations.
Our clients work with us to develop a razor sharp focus on what’s important, and discover that consistent results will only come through doing the right things, and doing them better every time. We help individuals and teams embed the beliefs, confidence and high performance habits to meet the toughest expectations.
The High Performance Programme starts with a diagnostic phase, understanding cultural nuances, drivers and blockers that are specific to the organisation and its people.
The programme then typically contains six one day modules which take place every 4-6 weeks from launch. Embedded in the programme is buddy coaching, 360 feedback and Manager sessions ensuring everyone is aligned and clear on exactly what success in role looks like and how to achieve it.
Our three High Performance Principles are at the core of making your boat go faster:
People who are clear about what they want – and how to get there – are an inspiration to everyone around them. If an entire team of people learn to operate like that, they can become unbeatable.

Working with Jon and the team at WIMTBGF has been very eye opening and of massive value not only to me as an individual, but the team I manage and the whole business. Jon’s structured approach and free speaking presentation skills made it feel like we was the workshop rather than a classroom learning environment. I strongly believe the teaching and points discussed will be talked about and used by many for the better of the business and for years to come. In the short space we spent with the Jon, I personally have seen the impact and the changes to the overall culture of our business.
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.
Working with the Will It? team has bought clarity of focus to our overarching ambition, as well as a focus on performance enhancement with the tools to support actions. The workshops and training are helping to build stronger trusted relationships and empowering everyone to lead more and challenge further the status quo. Having external guidance and input has been immensely valuable to support our team’s development and customer success strategy. I strongly recommend working with Ben, Tom and the team if you want to take your company to the next level.
