Who Needs High Performance?

High Performance is universally important

The skills needed for 9th grade success are different from those needed by a Fortune 100 manager, but both should do their work with High Performance.

High Performance isn't about being better that everyone, it's about being your personal best: caring about what you do, pushing through failure, having high expectations for yourself and following through. These are thing that everyone should aspire to and can achieve.

CSM corrects deep problems in conventional education

The current educational system holds students to low standards, and promotes teacher-centered learning. This undermines attention-to-detail, independent learning, and leaves students with superficial knowledge of skills.

We believe that the ways conventional education and training undermine High Performance characteristics is a fundamental, system-wide failure that explains the slow progress in improving education outcomes.

75% of students graduate from high school or college with B or C averages. While the education system counts them as successes because they graduate, they have only mediocre skills.

But the most damaging aspect of this is that students internalize that they are the type of person who performs at a B or C level. They carry this self image into their careers, and stop reaching to do their best.

CSM both trains and certifies High Performance

The CSM Course builds High Performance using the world's most advanced learning technology. By placing students into an authentic environment and tracking how they learn, CSM teaches learning strategies and improves persistence. By holding students to an extremely high standard and providing positive feedback on their successes, CSM instills high personal expectations and builds self-efficacy.

Those who complete the CSM Course are then eligible for the CSM Certificate, the world's first certificate of High Performance.

With a universally available and extremely low-cost method for training and certifying High Performance, CSM takes a systems-approach to building skills for individuals, employers, educational institutions, and communities.
