Bank of Me

Creating a culture of top performers

In incredible demand is our Bank of Me programme to ensure you keep your culture of high performers. We’d love to come and talk you through how our clients are benefiting from the incredible impact our work is having in this area. Call us for a coffee and an informal chat.

In both Jane’s book and all our work, we use a banking metaphor to describe the two types of people in organisations; ‘savers’ and ‘investors’. We’ve continued this into our ground-breaking programme that takes individuals on a journey to understand how their ‘bank balance’ is enabling or hindering their performance, and thus their contribution to a high performing culture. We then work with them to make new behaviour stick to increase great performance to be even more exceptional, thus contributing to an incredible culture.

The Bank of Me gives an opportunity for people to explore what they currently do that ‘deposits’ in their bank, and what they do that ‘withdraws’. Working with our faculty of top performers including the very best Olympians, Military and Commercial Pilots we explore what it takes to maintain high performance by paying attention to our physiological self, emotional intelligence, focus muscle for endurance, attitude to growth and team/personal fulfilment. We also make sure any desired change goes beyond intention and sticks.

It’s highly experiential and typically involves a two-day programme often including time on the river in boats and one to one time with experts in follow up coaching sessions; all giving an unforgettable experience that makes a lasting difference to the teams involved. A wider rollout option to cover an entire division is also common and we run high-energy conference-style sessions to this end. The impact is maximised where we also develop a ‘sustain’ programme for the organisation to implement after the sessions and ensure that high performance culture lives on.

UKTV has consistently bucked the trend in UK broadcasting since Darren Childs took on the business as CEO in 2010. 2014 saw a record year for the Broadcaster as it well exceeded market expectations. One of the acknowledged key levers for success has been the attention it’s paid to its culture and the Culture Builders has been with them every step of the way. As part of the on-going quest to ensure it has the highest performing teams and an environment where people can do their best work, we worked with them to deliver a series of team development workshops. Expertly lead by The Culture Builders team, these explored how to create, and keep, a high performing micro and macro team dynamic by using emotional intelligence techniques and Personality Type Profiling.

The Bank of Me is a programme that raises awareness of what it takes to be a sustainably high performer and gives practical techniques to achieve such a status on an ongoing basis. The outstanding Culture Builders team includes twice gold medal Olympian, Steve Williams, OBE, as well as leading nutrition, performance and business experts. In this session, UKTV members spent a highly interactive day being inspired by Steve’s experience of training, competing and learning. The team shared tools and approaches to help individuals manage each element of their lives to maintain peak performance.

A significant component of the programme explored the value of giving and seeking feedback as a route to peak performance. This, and all content from the Bank of Me, was sustained by being integrated into the UKTV Values, Behaviours and People processes.
