Executive Programme

Performance Optimisation Programme
Executive Programme
Our Executive Programme helps Chief Executives transform the performance of their leadership team.

Because business performance is largely a consequence of human performance, EP focuses on helping organisations lift the effectiveness of their most senior leaders to increase their impact on the business.

Using the technology Craig developed for elite coaches, this programme features world-leading tools and processes that will change your executive’s view of workplace performance and how to improve it.

Critically, it provides executives with a mechanism to step-change their impact on their staff thereby creating a breakthrough in what the company can achieve.

If you want to equip your most senior managers with the tools to better fulfil their purpose in the business, this programme is for you.

“Having SPS engaged in our business has been transformational; not just for my team and business performance, but in delivering the kind of capability shift in individuals that is fundamental in today’s increasingly competitive environment. Their insights and tools offer profound opportunity for change.”

Why our EP works

Our Executive Programme works because when business performance is examined, it is clear it is largely a consequence of human performance.

For this reason, our EP focuses on helping organisations optimise the impact of their most senior leaders.

Specifically, it steps senior leadership teams through a structured process to enable them to identify the organisations priorities and how they will need to operate to deliver them.

This includes clarifying the vision of the business and what they will need to do as the executive to achieve it.

These elements provide a mechanism to step-change the way the executive operates in order to transform the organisation.

How it’s implemented

Our EP includes a series of targeted workshops to help executives clarify their aspirations for the business and what they will need to be to achieve them.

Once the purpose and Game Plan are agreed, we work out what the business will require of your executive to achieve it. These workshops allow us to prepare a proper commercially focused Development Plan to help your executives step-change their impact on the business.

We then embed our Annual Performance Cycle to help your executive deliver the outcomes you are after as featured below. This includes regular Progress Reviews using our unique Progress Review template and the option to apply our revolutionary Performance Review template to complete the cycle.


Annual Performance Cycle:



Why is our process better?

The reason our Annual Performance Cycle is more powerful than conventional systems is because it's underpinned by our proven performance improvement process and secondly, because it's a fully integrated process that targets the principal drivers of workplace performance rather than using individual practices that typically miss the mark.

By deploying our process, it will enable you to step-change the performance of your executive thereby increasing their impact on the business.

How our pricing structure and licensing works
Your license to transform

Our Performance Improvement Programmes are licensed products designed to transform your people’s performance and productivity.

Unlike training courses that only benefit those who attend the training, our programmes are designed to support organisations in their entirety.

To make pricing easy, we charge customers based on the programme they choose and the number of people they employ. This ensures you only pay for what you need while reflecting the fact they add ever greater value the longer they are applied.

Our pricing model

License Fees

Each programme includes a one-off Setup Fee to ready the programme for your business, an Annual License Fee that allows you to use our tools or Intellectual Property at the level/s agreed and optional Delivery Fees to provide additional support to your business should you require it.

Please note: The Setup Fee includes the customisation of our Platform and Template Software to reflect your business, your Executive level Workshops to ready the programme for your business and the Administrative support required to help you embed the programme in your business.

To find out what it would cost to deploy one of our Performance Optimisation Programmes in your business, please contact us for a quote.

Delivery fees 

Our variable Delivery fees allow you to choose the level of support you need to deploy it. For example, some of our customers want us to teach every person in their organisation how to use our tools (Process), others prefer to focus on their managers and HR Advisors while others only need us to teach their most senior leaders. At the end of the day, the choice is yours and can be amended at any time.

Good to know

Intellectual property

It’s important to note that we don’t sell our programmes (or IP) but instead, we issue organisations with the rights to use them over a set term with an automatic right to renew them for future terms.

Licensing period

The minimum initial licensing period is one year for our Performance Optimisation Programmes and three years for our Performance Transformation Programme.

A long term solution

Our programmes aren't designed to act as short-term solutions to fix minor issues. Instead, they are designed to provide a powerful performance improvement process to help organisations excel on an ongoing basis.

Which programme should we choose?

The first thing to work out is whether you should proceed with one of our Performance Optimisation Programmes or our Performance Transformation Programme.

Either way, our programmes should be deployed for one reason and that it is to help your people deliver better outcomes.

Further to this, they enable organisations to introduce common tools and language across every level of the business.

What do staff make of them?

Since introducing our programmes, the majority of staff describe their introduction as either the best thing their company has ever done and/or the most impactful (life changing) process they have ever encountered as an individual.

By deploying our programmes, it enables organisations to realise a dramatic improvement in workplace relations thereby transforming their people’s commitment and contribution to the business.

Why don’t conventional systems work?

The reason conventional approaches don’t work is because they are predominately compliance based processes that focus on the management of people as a resource rather than equipping them with the tools to perform to their potential in their role. As a result, staff rarely engage in the spirit of their intent and instead, see them as a way to try and extract more out of them.

Our programmes, on the other hand, are seen in a far more positive light as people know they are there for the betterment of them and the organisation. This enables companies to achieve a breakthrough in staff engagement as they change the way employees think about their role and how best to fulfil it.

In practical terms, what’s the difference?

Based on our research, we could see the greatest impediment to improving staff performance and engagement in most businesses is the systems they use to manage their people.

By adopting a true High Trust > High Engagement model, it enables organisations to create a bottom up movement across every level of the business thereby transforming its ability to operate. 

Why is this relevant?

As you know, your people are critical to your success as a business. If you want them to do more, you have to give them the tools to be more.

For this reason, equipping your people with the tools to deliver better outcomes in their role is how you will increase the profitability and share value of your company.

Although organisations have invested billions trying to achieve this, most people-focused initiatives in use are less effective than their proponents state. The reason we believe this is the case is because they are either compliance-based initiatives that do nothing for staff engagement or they are individual or team based activities that may provide value to the individuals involved but have no material impact on the organisation as a whole.

Our programmes, on the other hand, are different because they focus on the application of tools that improve focus and performance across the entire business.  

Choosing the best programme for you
Deciding which programme is best for you is more straight forward than it might seem.

The first thing to work out is whether you should proceed with one of our Performance Optimisation Programmes or our business-wide Performance Transformation Programme.

Our Performance Optimisation Programmes are designed to help organisations that have well-established processes optimise the performance of their people whereas our Performance Transformation Programme enables organisations to overhaul their entire people and capability systems in order to replace it with a true performance-focused process to better inform their HR ecosystem as a whole. 

Although the impact of our Performance Transformation Programme on a business is typically greater, it isn’t automatically the best option. For example, organisations that have global practices they need to adhere to are better to proceed with a Performance Optimisation Programme to prevent the likelihood of competing systems. Equally, business units or departments wanting to proceed with a programme are better to go with a Performance Optimisation Programme for the same reason.

Organisations wanting to step-change the way they engage their people, and have the ability to overhaul their entire system, are better to deploy our Performance Transformation Programme as it offers a completely different way of working. One that not only recognises the potential of every individual but one that will transform the way you engage them.
