There never was such a thing as business as usual. Nobody has ever known for sure what’s coming next. But we know this: you can choose how you show up, how you think, how you perform, and how you multiply energy.

Our focus

Human performance is incredibly complex. There are countless variables at play and it's easy to feel out of control, overwhelmed, fatigued, scattered, and brain fogged. At TIGNUM, our understanding of the business professional’s body and brain is unique, as are the methods we’ve developed over the last 15 years. We upgrade the human performance of business professionals and their teams so they can expand the value they create - at work and away from work.

What we do

We teach and coach tactical, tangible, and pragmatic solutions to build each team member's performance habits on three levels:

We evaluate and improve the performance of your body’s organ systems by helping to balance the autonomic nervous system, eliminate energy leaks, boost your immune system, and solve muscle imbalances.


Our work doesn’t fit into any standard box - there is no familiar label for what we do. When we started, we coined the term Sustainable High Performance, which was then adopted by many companies. To make our approach more tangible, we clustered business professionals into these three groups. Which group are you in? What about your team members? And where do you want to be?

Our solutions

Complex but not complicated

Whatever digital transformation you’re planning, whatever project you’re implementing, whatever product you’re bringing to market, the work will be done by humans. And if you’re serious about Sustainable High Performance, let’s be honest: this is not a lunch-and-learn topic. It's not about trendy topics. There are no quick fixes. There is no one-size-fits-all solution.

What we offer is a personal operating model combined with cutting-edge tools and strategies that are easily applicable. We've worked with thousands of highly talented leaders and their teams around the globe, and put all of our proprietary insights and decades of data, tools, and strategies, into a digital platform called TIGNUM X. This is the nucleus of all our tailored solutions.


Our solutions range from purely digital to high-touch and can be broken down into three tiers: Essential, Accelerated, and Complete. Each tier includes access to our comprehensive digital platform TIGNUM X, and can then be further enhanced to meet the unique needs of your team with the right combination of , , data analytics, and a personal performance lab.

New science, new thinking, new performance strategies

To be at the forefront of human performance and Sustainable High Impact, we created the TIGNUM Lab. This is where we bring in new science, try new strategies, challenge our own thinking, and look at what the future could bring.

Within our TIGNUM Lab sits our Science Innovation Board. This allows us to collaborate with some of the world’s foremost performance experts in neuroscience, sleep science, brain and gut nutrition, performance medicine, performance psychology, exercise physiology, jet lag, and more.
