With our performance capabilities assessments, we look at the performance qualities, or attributes, in Mindset, Nutrition, Movement, and Recovery. Doing so allows us to profile individuals who are highly successful at a task and use the information we gather to create a baseline for organizations to recruit other highly successful individuals or train others to move closer to that successful profile.
As part of our assessments, we’ll examine and test a variety of performance qualities within each pillar. For Mindset, we may look at grit, the ability to be coached, positivity, and emotional balance. For Nutrition, we may look at hydration, nutrient status, and food quality. For Movement, we often assess movement efficiency, total-body power, strength, speed, and fitness. Recovery may look at energy, inflammation management, autonomic nervous system balance, and sleep quality.
The qualities we assess depend on the individuals we’re assessing and the goals of the team or organization we’re working with.
We’ll use our Performance Quotient to quantify the data we gather. Five scores result: an overall score and individual scores for each of the four pillars. These scores allow the individual we’re assessing to understand his or her strengths and weaknesses, and it also provides a measurable picture of improvement over time. Scores can be used to compare peer-to-peer performance for teams that must make informed on-field decisions as well as to guide injury management and return-to-performance programming for injured athletes or individuals. The identification of limiting factors that inhibit performance also allows for programming modifications that can help improve performance potential.
Our Performance Quotient provides a score that can be used to track personal progress as well as comparisons with teammates.
