Out of the box

Having created a proven system of strategies to help leaders in their pursuit of sustainable high performance, Tignum augmented its offering with a physical space for tailored experiences. Tignum clients are invited to a personalised three-day programme of performance-enhancing activities with the Mediterranean as a backdrop. Welcome to the Tignum Box. You can leave your shoes and preconceptions at the door.

In their rousing book, Sink, Float or Swim: Sustainable High Performance Doesn’t Happen by Chance — It Happens by Choice, Tignum co-founders Scott Peltin and Jogi Rippel use the swimming analogy to illustrate how an individual or organisation can reach peak performance and manage to sustain it at high levels. It might come as no surprise then that an integral device in their motivational toolbox is located a stone’s throw from the Mediterranean Sea. Tignum Box is a “personal performance innovation lab” located on the northeast coast of Mallorca. Created to deliver the ultimate personal Tignum experience, clients can come to this beautiful retreat to unload, reset and refocus. This helps guests not only recharge but also prepare for challenges ahead.

“When we chose the property, we looked at it through a set of filters. First, it had to be easily accessible and quick to reach. There had to be an airport within one hour but it should also be completely remote — you shouldn’t be able to see any hotels or hustle and bustle,” says Rippel. “Finally, and most importantly, it should have endless views so visitors can think outside the box and open their horizons.”

The effect is unmistakable. Over the course of three days, guests are remotely guided by Tignum specialists through three tailored phases. They first unload by setting down physical, cognitive and emotional baggage. Then they reset by realigning their autonomic nervous systems and readying themselves to use stress as an advantage. And finally they refocus by aligning their personal self-image and sustainable human performance strategies with forward-looking challenges.

“Through a brief interview before the guests arrive, we identify their current performance challenges and then design a tailored plan. Every day they receive a video call from a Tignum expert and together we take them on their journey,” says Rippel. “We even provide key elements for our client’s performance nutrition while connecting them with some of the island’s finest restaurants. We create the perfect blend of isolation, reflection, exploration and coaching.”

Its location at the foot of a nature reserve with spectacular, undisturbed views of the countryside behind and sea in front makes the Tignum Box an ideal getaway for the entrepreneur who needs to focus on an upcoming challenge or the executive who wants to retune ahead of taking on a new role in the C-suite.
