Who is HPO?

What Role Does a Human Performance Outfitter Play?
Integrating a Learning Performance  Paradigm to the point of full adoption represents a Change journey not unlike that of scaling a mountain to reach the summit. Engaging an outfitter before attempting the climb is a routine part of thorough preparation. The right gear, climbing techniques, tips, coaching, advice, and a map to the summit from a guide who has been there makes for good practice...even before establishing a base camp.

HPO has been to this lofty summit multiple times over the last 12 years and can confirm each ascent was different. In fact, the DRIVER Discipline was developed because each ascent was different and a repeatable approach was manadatory whether the effort was enterprise-wide or a simple training project request. The difference yielded the foundation designed to DRIVE solutions targeting sustained workforce performance.
