TEAM PERFORMANCE

Developing people is the purpose.
Motorsport is our method. 

At DTO Performance we take the dynamic world of motorsport and use it to create valuable, interactive and enjoyable Team Performance events. 

Within our approach, we use the elite sport principles of measurable performance, collaboration and the ability to make good decisions and think clearly under pressure. We devise tailored training days for your staff that are enjoyable and also create long-lasting mindset changes in addition to helping your team develop new skills.

Attendees will work through motorsport-themed modules that highlight important attributes found in high functioning teams, focusing on trust, communication, conflict resolution, problem solving and empathy.

Whilst our Team Performance days are fun and engaging, our objective is to create an environment in which your team can learn and develop. Our modules provide invaluable observations on how your staff react under pressure, how effective (or otherwise) their leadership skills are and help you identify the natural role that individuals play within the team. 

We motivate people and bring them together to work more effectively, offering a unique perspective and reference point for getting the best out of your staff along with helping to inform confident decisions about organisational design and structure.

Our skilled instructors and coaches are on-hand throughout to provide constructive feedback on individual behaviours and skills. You will be amazed by the amount of learning you come away with after just one day.

Are you passionate about developing and supporting your team? If you value your people, get in touch today to discuss Team Performance opportunities for your organisation.

TESTIMONIALS

TEAM ENGAGEMENT EVENT

 

The ‘experiences’ that DTO put together, not only have motivated teams and brought them together to work more effectively, but have gained a unique perspective and reference point. Many people have been able to use this judgement to make immediate career plans and decisions around organisational design and structure that we otherwise wouldn’t have been in a position to do.

 

As an independent HR Consultant, I will certainly be recommending DTO as an effective team building, development planning and organisational design solution to other clients.

PITSTOP CHALLENGE

 

The pitstop challenge was a really good test for understating how people analyse situations differently and had to work together to make sure that people were playing to their strengths and towards a common goal. Once we had our roles we were then able to little things for each other to make it easier and massively speed up the overall pitstop.
