Introducing FidesOak®

FidesOak®  uses a science based approach allowing us to measure an organisations base line and offer recommendations to mature the culture and develop high performing teams. FidesOak® have developed sophisticated tools to measure and assess an organisation's culture, using the client’s demographic. This offers rich and meaningful data that can be ‘mined’ extensively to understand how the 5 Elements of the High Performing Team model are being experienced within the culture, giving focus to FidesOak® recommendations and solutions. By focusing on and developing the non-technical attributes of a team we can amplify the team’s full potential, realised in results.

The Five Elements

The FidesOak® HPT® Model is rooted in a comprehensive study conducted by the Center for Evidence Based Management (CEMBa) in the Netherlands. This study utilised various research sources, including the ABI/INFORM global business database, organisational research, and psychology papers, with a particular focus on high performance and related organisational culture. The study identified five key elements that were consistently found to influence high performance. These elements were then tested for their strength in predicting and influencing organisational culture performance, with Team Cohesion emerging as the most influential factor. However, all five elements demonstrated a significant strength of relationship, underscoring their importance.

The five elements identified in the study form the core of the FidesOak® HPT® Model. From these elements, FidesOak® developed the HPT® Habits Framework, which outlines specific habits that, when consistently demonstrated, contribute to cultivating a high-performing organisational culture. FidesOak® measures organisational culture against these elements and habits, monitoring and trending them throughout project execution. These elements and habits also inform the content of FidesOak®'s workshops and guide our coaching, ensuring a consistent and integrated approach — referred to as the "golden thread" — throughout our programs.

The five elements for a high performing culture are:

  • Team Cohesion

  • Leadership

  • Vision/Goal Sharing

  • Information Sharing

  • Psychological Safety

What our Clients Say

"Following several years of collaboration on process safety training, Apache North Sea engaged FidesOak® to develop a performance improvement programme aimed to enhance the effectiveness of the offshore leadership teams and to further advance the offshore safety culture. The programme involved onshore leadership workshops and the use of performance coaches embedded in the offshore teams."

Stuart Taylor (Operational Performance Director) commented “the collaboration with FidesOak® has been very successful, from the recent performance program I have witnessed more effective offshore safety leadership at all levels which has led to an improvement in our offshore safety performance.”

"I have been both Head of Projects and Head of Operations at Centrica and I wanted to combine the best of both worlds on this project by enhancing the non-technical skills of our employees. This would help them to collaborate using these skills, instead of using their technical knowledge in such a way that they might block each other" – Martin Scargill, Managing Director, Centrica.

"I have no doubt that FidesOak® contributed to the success of this project. It provided us with a unique way to turn two teams with different priorities into one high performing team. We have shared our experiences with our senior leadership team: it would be interesting to consider in which other contexts FidesOak® can help us become more successful." – Mark Jenkinson, Operations Manager, Centrica.
