A proven approach that enhances operational safety and performance.
Cortexia have developed the Argos Protocol; an objective investigation into your operations focussed on how well your staff and organisational systems anticipate and manage threats and errors. The observations are driven internally and in 'live' environments by your own well regarded staff/operators. This allows us to monitor risk, and build tailored and targeted workshops along with in situ coaching, based on proven countermeasures and techniques sourced from Special Forces, the US Navy's Top Gun Flight School, Neuroscience, Cognitive Psychology, Sports Psychology and High Reliability Organisations.
