Redefining the Art of Achievement

For Accelerated Team Performance

A common belief in today’s business world is that we must get more with less. Company downsizing, mergers and the demand to build market value have led to a culture that makes that philosophy not a mere expectation, but a demand. This paradigm creates a workforce with additional responsibilities and reduced resources, leading to less time with family and fewer opportunities for personal and professional growth. Ultimately, this approach to business creates the “grind it out” mentality; this abrasive culture is a false construct. It is built on the premise that more effort creates more results, but realistically, we end up chasing our own tails. If we believe it takes more effort, we create more effort, blinding ourselves to the endless opportunities for exceptional performance.

In order to create new opportunities and improve company culture, we must learn how to change our attitudes; but it’s not about covering them up with positive attitudes or positive behaviors, it’s about finding out where our minds are already made up. Those areas create scotomas, or blind spots, to accelerated performance. We take these scotomas into our meetings, trainings and personal lives. Thus, we end up changing our opportunities because we don’t know how to successfully change our minds.

Through our partnership with Aperneo, Larry Olsen helped our organization develop a corporate vision and true sense of purpose. This was the foundation which engaged our associates in improving our operational performance significantly, resulting in year over year increases in sales, market share, customer satisfaction and profitability.

General Manager, Lexus Central Area


Larry’s work with us has paid huge dividends in really helping us understand how the mind works…to create the attitude of can do! Outside of hiring the best and the brightest at PepsiCo the other part of the equation is their attitude. We want it filled with a positive, embracing change and go after our goals with a high level of energy. Larry has really been my coach and the teacher for my team in teaching us what the "can do" attitude is all about.

Why I chose Aperneo is that they tailor the approach to the client, its not going out and hiring a big consulting company that’s going to come into you with a canned product that has some form of three interconnected circles as the answer to the world. This is very individualized and it’s very human because that’s where change occurs.

I would not have believed that with his wisdom and unique scientific/performance driven education, aligned with our organizational goals and values, we could motivate, grow and achieve such positive results in a short period of time. These positive results were recently confirmed by an independent national survey completed by our business partners, showing that we were the only Toyota Region in a down economy that not only met or exceeded our industry’s benchmarks but were the only region that grew in the category of associate satisfaction.
