CHX Performance

Scientist of Yourself®

The CHX Vision is to help shape a World that is full of higher performing, more engaged, kinder businesses where people are at their absolute best in all environments. 

To bring this to life, CHX Performance address many of the same business challenges as those of traditional consultants however, CHX are experts in the biology of business and that is what makes CHX unique. Because in business, much of what people do - be that individual performance, team effectiveness or strategic leadership - is driven by hard-wired biological processes. CHX’s cutting edge, science led programmes focus on two key areas.

Reframing Organisational Mental Health. Many organisations have an understanding that mental health = mental illness. It does not. Mental health is something we should aspire to. Mental health describes a situation in which we are functioning well, good mental health where we are functioning optimally. Good mental health is essential for sustainable, high performing organisations.

Humanising Leadership. Radical changes to many aspects of work through 2020 brought into sharp focus two things: the need to normalise discussions about mental health and ‘feelings’ and the lack of experience, skills and confidence within Leadership to do so effectively. Leadership in 2021 is as much about how we make people feel as what we say and do. 

Underpinning CHX's programmes is data, CHX have created a tool  - MoJo - enabling organisations to move from metaphorically assessing “how their people are doing”, to using, real time, hard data to diagnose and predict risks and opportunities in relation to their peoples’ engagement, health and performance.

At all stages, the Scientist of Yourself® programme provides individuals, teams and businesses with greater control of performance, quality of life and mental health, helping all course participants to be at their absolute best in all environments.

The Scientist of Yourself® ecosystems and data tools

Scientist of Yourself® is based on the latest scientific understanding of the complex relationship between the brain and the body; how our moods, emotions, energy and engagement with others are impacted by modern environments, and how stress arises from imbalances between us and our modern lives. Our ecosystem approach addresses all the biological, psychological and social factors within a coherent and evidence-based framework, grounded in neuroscience and human physiology alongside more traditional cognitive psychological approaches. Underpinning the ecosystem content with hard data, CHX have a unique tool that measures mood - MoJo. MoJo enables individuals to map their mood journey and ensure they stay in their individual zone of optimum function (IZOF), through the provision of real time data that measures and predicts both mental health and our ability to perform.
