The HRC Process

  1. Introduction and awareness of the participants for high-performance aspects.
  2. High Performance Team Diagnosis: The HRC diagnostic tool provides a precise overview of the areas in which a team/company differs from HIGH performance-teams. Based on the individual diagnosis we provide you a personal “ToB”-training program.
  3. Action Learning Modules "Excellence through Sailing" & "team on board ToB": Mental training and active training in the various high-performance modules (Sailing, Flight Simulator, surgical simulation).
  4. Anchoring the experienced and learned course material through reflection and transformation
  5. Evaluation process: implementing the “new Know-How” in the customer's environment.

The specially trained team of instructors and coaches will implement the HRC philosophy (based on Prof. Peter Pavlovsky’s HIPE philosophy) together with you and your team into the existing corporate and departmental structures. Through the direct reflections in the seminars and action learning modules the experience will immediately be analyzed, evaluated and optimized. Contents of the client business units are closely involved in the awareness-raising and anchoring processes. So the contents are permanently cemented sustainably into the minds of the participants.
