Unleash your organisation’s potential

Just like elite sports teams, organisations excel through the collective effect of superior individual performance.

If you believe your organisation has the potential to do more, our revolutionary performance improvement system may be the answer.

Irrespective of industry, our process will take your organisation to the next level
Equip your people with the tools to perform at an optimum level

When it comes to profitability, productivity isnt everything but in the end, it is almost everything.

Creating a new era for your business

As you know, improving your people’s productivity is vital to your organisation’s continuing success. 

Despite the fact businesses are investing more in their people's performance than ever before, research suggests the majority of initiatives undertaken to improve it fail. 

The reason we believe this is the case is because most initiatives are either focused on one particular facet of the business meaning it only affects that workgroup or, it is skills-based training to support specific individuals, therefore, it has no material impact on the organisation as a whole.

Why our system is different

The Steel Performance System™ on the other hand is a business-wide framework that helps organisations transform the performance of their entire workforce.

By introducing the Steel Performance System™, businesses are not only able to realise a more radical change than what conventional practices allow but experience that change more quickly.

Because the Steel Performance System™ mobilises every person, it supercharges organisations thereby enabling them to maximise the value of their existing assets.

The combination of our breakthrough technology and unique deployment model has prompted experts to describe it as the most powerful performance improvement tool ever developed.

Build a culture of exceptional trust, engagement and performance
The SPS offers a whole new way of working

Increasing demand requires governments around the world to improve the quality of services they provide.

Today, taxpayers not only want and need answers to complex social challenges, those responsible for delivering them need to be clearer about their purpose and the value they add to society.

If you are committed to improving the outcomes your service provides, the Steel Performance System™ can help you achieve it.

We help both state services and government agencies improve the performance of their people using a unique process we initially developed for elite athletes.

Since introducing this process, executives say it has not only provided the solution they’ve been looking for, it has helped them realise a dramatic improvement in workplace performance and engagement.

Why our system is different

The Steel Performance System™ is a purpose-built framework designed to help organisations transform the performance and productivity of their workforce.

Unlike conventional training, the Steel Performance System™ changes the way your people think about their work and ultimately, how they perform.

By introducing our proven performance transformation tools, the Steel Performance System™ enables organisations to not only realise a more radical change than what conventional practices allow, but experience lasting change more quickly.

In short, the Steel Performance System™ lifts the performance of public entities thereby enabling them to have a greater impact on the community.

If you are serious about performance, the Steel Performance System™ will help your people deliver the outcomes you are promising.


Increase your team's ability to win
Beat the competition

As every athlete knows, winning matters. 

In this day and age, the success of both teams and sporting organisations alike rests on their ability to win.

Today, getting ahead of the competition is top of mind for sporting administrators globally.

While a team's ability to win makes the difference on the day, their ability to stay in front is critical to its future.

After years of development, our unique performance improvement process is now available to help sports team's transform the performance of their entire organisation.

Why our system is different

The Steel Performance System™ is a performance framework designed to unlock the potential of professional teams and national sporting organisations alike.

Originally developed to help individual athletes win on the world stage, it has been expanded to allow organisations to leverage our technology across their entire business.

This includes the transformation of national sporting organisations wanting to lift their profile and/or individual teams wanting to improve their international competitiveness.

If you are ready to take the performance of your team or organisation to the next level, The Steel Performance System™ is the answer.

SPS digital platform on devices
Why the SPS works

The Steel Performance System™ works because it uses proven technology initially designed to help athletes win on the world stage. After more than a decade of commercial testing, it is now available to help organisations optimise the performance of their entire workforce.

At its core, the Steel Performance System™ is designed to help businesses unlock the potential of their people thereby changing the way they think about their role and what they are capable of producing.

Since introducing it, executives say it has not only transformed the way they operate, it has helped them realise a dramatic improvement in workplace performance and engagement.

How it’s implemented

The Steel Performance System™ is different than what organisations are accustomed to. Instead of using disconnected tools and processes to improve different parts of the business, it allows organisations to deploy a single cutting-edge solution to transform their entire operation.

The Steel Performance System™ consists of five interconnected frameworks that together, target what we refer to as the 5 Drivers of Workplace Performance™. By deploying these frameworks sequentially, they create a cultural shift that transforms the way organisations think and operate.

Breakthrough in workforce management

The Steel Performance System™ offers a breakthrough in workforce management. Because it's a ‘leader-led’ process, it positions your managers as the drivers of the programme thereby enabling them to lead the culture change you are looking for throughout their workgroup.

Because the introduction of each framework produces a ‘step-change’ in performance in its own right, the Steel Performance System™ is typically rolled out over a three-year period. This includes a 4-6 month preparation phase followed by the deployment of one framework every six months until all five frameworks are in place.

To maximise the impact of each framework, we deploy them top down using a combination of performance workshops and real world activities to embed the changes you're after in each workgroup. In addition to this, we provide powerful online tools to ensure your people's uptake of the process eclipses all that you and they have experienced before.

Once the frameworks are embedded, they provide a business-wide (performance) cycle for success. They are also integrated into your organisation's HR ecosystem in accordance with your employee lifecycle to support your people throughout every stage of their career in your company.

How our pricing structure and licensing works
Your license to transform

The Steel Performance System™ is a licensed product designed to transform your people’s performance and productivity.

Unlike training courses that only benefit those who attend the training, the Steel Performance System™ is a business-wide process that supports every person.

To make pricing easy, we charge customers based on the number of people they employ. This ensures you only pay for what you need while reflecting the fact it adds ever greater value the longer it’s applied.

Our pricing model

License fees – fixed per person

Our starting rate is $40 per person per month for the first 1,000 staff. It then drops down to $30 a person for the next 1,001 - 5,000 staff. It is then reduced to $20 per person per month for the next 5,001 to 25,000 staff or about the price of a cup of coffee per person per week!

For organisations employing over 25,000 staff, we offer our discounted rate of $20 per person per month from the outset.

Delivery fees – variable

We also offer variable delivery fees that 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 the SPS, others prefer to focus on their managers while others only need us to teach their most senior managers and SPS Programme Team. 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 process but instead, we issue organisations with the rights to use it over a set term with an automatic right to renew it for future terms.

Licensing period

The minimum initial licensing period is three years due to the fact it takes that long to deploy the five frameworks.

A long term solution

The Steel Performance System™ isn’t a short-term solution to fix a particular issue. Instead, it's a genuine performance optimisation process that's designed to help organisations excel on an ongoing basis.

Prices are in NZD excluding GST.

Our story
The Steel Performance System™ is the life work of our principal and founder, Craig Steel.

Craig is a veteran of the performance industry and considered by many to be Australasia’s foremost performance expert.

Two decades ago, Craig made what was described by experts as one of the single greatest breakthroughs in international sport by discovering why and how athletes capitulate (choke).

Although this discovery was only seen by a select few, it enabled him to develop a system to help athletes step-up to a different level of performance. Since its introduction, his system has not only helped New Zealand athletes win over 20 World Cup and World Championship titles, it's continued to prove its superiority over other best practice tools and methodology used around the world.

Following his success with athletes, a number of New Zealand’s most respected business leaders asked Craig if he could do for them what he was doing for athletes. This gave him the opportunity to test the effectiveness of his system in a commercial setting. The first company that used it increased its sales by 407% in four months, proving it could be applied to business.

Since then, we’ve spent the past decade perfecting our process to help organisations out-perform their competitors.
