THE SCIENCE OF BRILLIANCE
The next leap in PEAK performance
you can’t improve it.
As humans, we are fuelled by a desire to seek out evolution and find ways to push our levels of performance to new capabilities in all areas of our lives, whether personal or professional. We were all born brilliant, but we exist in a constant state of change that continually pulls and pushes us towards and away from our brilliance. Where you end up depends on what you do on the way there. We’re made for seeking, so learn a ton and get it done.
We need to be more clever, more skilful and more connected than ever before.
We have the knowledge. We have the technology. We see the future, and the future is brilliant.

BRILLIANCE IS FOR EVERYONE
Everyone is capable of brilliance, but it can unrealised. Brilliance comes from every corner of society and can take a myriad forms. It might be the CEO who can solve a problem in the blink of an eye, the parent always finding creative ways to keep their kids entertained, or the neighbour stopping by with a warm meal just when you need it most. We` celebrate all kinds of brilliance, big and small!
At our core, we are deeply rooted in neuroscience. In fact, for us, it’s not just an area of expertise – it’s a source of inspiration. Our team works to discover ground-breaking insights in the science of the brain and to translate those learnings into innovative products that unleash your potential and self-expression.
We’re always pushing the boundaries when it comes to developing cutting-edge technology and creating innovative solutions for peak human performance. Our team is full of creative minds and energetic spirits that never lose sight of what matters most. We take pride in our work, constantly striving for brilliance and leading the way forward.
Human brilliance is the heart and soul of our company! We understand that unlocking the power of human creativity and innovation is what helps drive businesses forward. That’s why we strive to provide the environment, resources, and support needed to help foster growth, curiosity, and success in everybody.
We don’t settle for just getting by – if it isn’t going to move the needle and make things better, then why bother? This attitude has proven especially effective in catalysing change and achieving real world results. That’s why we say if you don’t measure it, then you can’t improve it.
The Aspirational Level
CLEVER. SKILFUL. CONNECTED.
THE BRILLIANCE MAP
We define brilliance as being clever enough to figure out what you want and how to get it, skilful enough to be able to make it happen and connected enough that you’re only doing things that are important to you. The 6 brilliance factors tell us which areas of your life could do with a bit of attention, and which ones are doing just fine.
to help you
These 3 brilliance factors fall onto the ‘push’ side of the wheel. They are needed to help keep you focused and moving forwards towards greater levels of brilliance.
Future brilliance means that you are actively shaping and improving your mindset, skillset and strategy. It is about investing in yourself and preparing for life’s challenge with the ability to move yourself closer towards goals consistently.
Physical Brilliance means that your body is healthy and able to perform the tasks necessary for your everyday life. You need physical strength, endurance and vitality to cope with work and life’s daily demands.
Material brilliance means feeling satisfied with what you have – from material possessions to financial circumstances – no matter how much or little you have acquired in your life so far.
to help you
These 3 brilliance factors fall onto the ‘balance’ side of the wheel. They are needed to help keep you calm, organised and agile.
Mental brilliance is about having a sound and holistic wellbeing, which includes being emotionally agile, psychologically strong and socially comfortable.
Harmonic brilliance is all about mastering the delicate balance between your work life and personal life. It enables you to find equilibrium between service to yourself, your family and your community in order to optimize all aspects of life.
Interpersonal brilliance is the capacity to relate with others in an authentic way, communicate effectively, build collaborative relationships, lead teams efficiently and resolve conflicts constructively.
The Functional Level
Working at the functional level, we’re able to focus skill development to consistently perform better by identifying what drives and enables how we think, feel and take action.
This allows us to provide targeted development that gets you up to speed, faster.
Your Enablers are the things that keep you going. This affects how much you’re able to tackle in one go and whether you’re able to get everything done or not. It comes down to two key factors which are…
This is the amount of working memory & mental resources required to get things done every day. Think of it is as your mental bandwidth. If it’s not running properly, you’ll find it difficult to get anything done as you will be overloaded.
This is how you acquire new knowledge and what you use to think through things clearly. If this isn’t functioning efficiently, your capabilities will stop improving and will start declining.
Your Drivers are the things that get you started and keep you on track. This affects whether or not you’re likely to take action, because you value what you’re going to get out of doing something. It comes down to two key factors which are…
Your Primary Motivators indicate you source of motivation. Are you more likely to take action because of intrinsic, extrinsic, social or individual outcomes?
Your Brain Type speaks to what kind of outcomes you favour, and are more likely to get you to take action based on the content. It also helps you to understand why you make certain decisions.
The Foundational Level
SELF. SPEED. EXCELLENCE.
When we work at the foundational level, we are doing deep work that pushes your capabilities to new limits. This is critical for when you hit your glass ceiling and need to push through to find new levels of performance or a more advanced version of yourself.
This affects how you think.
Includes the internal sense of being good enough and worthy, trusting yourself and being able to form original thoughts and ideas.
This affects how you act.
Includes how self-reliant you are, how you move towards the future and your ability to adjust and improve through your experiences.
This affects how you feel.
Includes how meaningful and worthy of your attention something is and how you’re able to engage with the world beyond yourself.

THE BRILLIANCE ZONES
Your current level of brilliance determines the most effective way to approach improving your brilliance. We identify these easily using the brilliance zones. Depending on where you’re at, you may need to Ignite, Inspire, Strengthen, Explore or Evolve your brilliance.
you need to provoke change
You don’t yet have the desire, knowledge or understanding about the benefits or what you should be doing. You don’t want it yet. This is all about getting buy in. To do this, understand the benefits of it, the science and know that it’s possible for you.
you need to stimulate desire
We’re trying to motivate to get started, to take action. At this stage, the outcomes need to be personalised and attached to future self. This is something beyond yourself. Finding purpose and meaning as well as the confidence to do it.
you need to accelerate
You’ve identified what helps and what hinders you. You know who your future self is and are actively working towards that future self. So you’re doing more or less of the right things, but could be better or more consistent.
you need to stir up curiosity
In essence, you’re happy with where you are right now and want to know more about yourself, what you can put out into the world, and what else the world has to offer. When you explore, you find new levels. At this stage you need new ideas, so expose yourself to new experiences, people, thinking and possibilities.
you need to transform
At this stage, you know what your next level looks like. You don’t have all of the pieces put together, but you know the destination. You know where you want to go, but you might not know how to get there. But you’re ready to start figuring it out.
qEEG stands for quantitative electroencephalography, which is a technique used to measure and analyze an individual’s brain waves. This allows us to monitor things like concentration and alertness, as well as identify any neurological abnormalities or cognitive impairments. Quantitative Electroencephalogram’s (qEEG) were first pioneered over 60 years ago in the 1960’s and have since shown an accuracy of up to 98%.
QEEG is a TGA/FDA approved evidence based diagnostic tool that creates a spatial map of your brain waves. We use it for Peak Performance so you can take the guesswork out of where to put your attention to develop the skills most critical for your performance so you can become the best version of yourself.
