About

About Our Company ~ 

Performance Transformation, LLC™ provides custom strategic and professional development solutions delivering creative, adaptive advantage for our clients. Our approach aligns and optimizes leadership, strategy, and organizational culture, igniting breakthrough performance.  In the 21st century, the source of value creation emerges through the efficient commercialization of innovative intellectual property. Commercially viable intellectual property emerges through the work of cohesive, diverse teams of highly engaged, creative and adaptive human beings. Yet, for many firms, management principles are still deeply rooted in the Industrial Age, when value was created by the exploitation of abundant, cheap raw materials, specialized labor and the application of capital.

Through our evidence-based approach to strategic and professional development, Performance Transformation guides our clients through an evolutionary process designed to cultivate authentic, transformational leadership, strategically leverage human creativity, and create an inclusive culture that resonates with their associates, customers, and community.  Our comprehensive approach integrates the competencies of Emotional Intelligence with the constructs of Applied Behavioral Economics and draws upon peer-reviewed, published research into the competitive affect of Core Mammalian Emotional Systems, Neurocardiology, Neurophysiology, Kolb’s Learning Style Inventory and Performance Psychology in the workplace.

Testimonials ~

“You are really a dynamo! The Leadership Training you conducted in Hawaii was a very profound experience that created a breakthrough in my business and personal life. As a result, a whole new level of creativity and productivity entered my life. I was able to find the precious time and energy necessary to move ahead and launch The Hollywood Hawaii Media Alliance – a dream job opportunity. This would not have occurred without your leadership guidance and in depth workshop content which opened my heart and mind to new possibilities. I feel you have touched my life on a very deep level and am very grateful for you and the excellent work you do.”

Thank you for doing this work on behalf of anyone, anywhere. I recommend it to those searching for insights, relationships, community and patterns within one’s world. It helped me with getting out of my own way, opening and welcoming new information and the safety to truly allow and experience it.”

The experience is allowing me to engage my greatest passions and put my creative strengths into action. Before this program, I was always talking about what I wanted to do. Now I’m actually doing it.”

Terry’s insight sets him apart from everyone else in his field and true to his aim, transforms performance on every level of human endeavor.”

“Terry’s integrity and attention to ethical standards of practice is evident in all areas of his commitments and work; The Epona Approach™, Epona Quest Foundation and with his own business, Performance Transformation LLC™. Terry Murray’s inspired Business and Leadership Training programmes are rich in content. They affirm and elicit the very best of an individuals valuable contributions and abilities, thereby creating a cycle of consistently successful outcomes for both employees and employers. I worked with Terry as a group facilitator, over a year long training programme and observed his dedication and natural enthusiasm for team work and his flare for achieving successful outcomes – what ever the odds. His inclusive beliefs in the values of the Epona Approach methodology and the time he dedicates to co-initiating projects such as The Epona Quest Foundation and Warriors in Transition project are testament to the fact that he is an outstanding person – or a ‘jolly good egg’ as we might say here in England!”
