Our Backstory

Our Founder

Tim Autrey has been a student of human behavior for as long as he can remember.

His Human Performance learning journey began at age 10 when he read Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill and How to Win Friends & Influence People by Dale Carnegie.
 
He then began to live his life as an uncompromising champion of human possibility.

His passion for helping people be and become the best possible versions of themselves continues...
Tim served 8 years in the US Navy.

He was an enlisted member of the Commissioning Crew of the USS Ohio (SSBN-726), the country’s first Trident Nuclear Submarine.

He spent more than a year of his life underwater during his submarine career, which he discovered to be an ideal ‘laboratory’ for observing & studying crewmember psychology and human behavior.

The year Tim left the Navy, he was humbled to have been named “Sailor of the Year” for the Pacific Northwest.
Next, Tim spent approximately 20 years working in the US Nuclear Power Industry. His primary roles included teaching Licensed Operators how to safely operate nuclear reactors, managing corrective action, regulatory affairs, “coaching & observation” programs, and improving Human Performance.

In 2002, Tim grabbed the opportunity to meld his lifelong study of ‘WHY people do WHAT they do the WAY they do it’ with the performance improvement tools being developed within the nuclear industry.

He designed, implemented, and orchestrated a Performance Improvement initiative that generated an 87.5% sustained reduction in human error.
Recognizing a ‘bigger picture’, a way to serve more people and additional industries, Tim left his final role in the nuclear industry and founded the Practicing Perfection Institute, Inc. (PPI).

Since then he’s had the opportunity to serve along with an amazing Team at PPI. He’s spoken at Stanford University, the Mayo Clinic, and to 10,000+ person audiences.
He’s worked with Leaders and Team Members across the Americas, across China, in Russia, Europe, India, Hong Kong, and Singapore.

In 2015 his best-selling book, 6-Hour Safety Culture, was published by the Human Performance Association, Inc.

We started small...and we GREW.

Our commercial journey began in Vermont and New Hampshire, helping a two-office 24-person orthodontic practice overcome personnel issues to sustainably elevate the quality of their work culture, and ultimately- client satisfaction and profitability.

Our work in the Electrical Industry began with the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) in central Texas. 

Since then, we’ve helped most major generators, transmission & distribution companies, and industry modification & maintenance support organizations increase Reliability, Efficiency, Productivity, and Safety (REPS).
Our Clients shared their successes during conferences, through associations, and with industry peers.

PPI grew exponentially.

With an advertising and marketing budget of ZERO, our revenue and numbers of people served more than doubled each year from 2007 through 2013.
In 2019, PPI developed Human Performance BASIC Training iLearning™- the first-ever interactive online Human Performance learning opportunity.

PPI iLearning leverages technology to achieve exceptional transfer of insight & awareness, retention, and [even] fun, while overcoming geographical, logistical, and financial hurdles. 

It makes Industry-Leading Human Performance Improvement affordable for any organization, including small businesses.

To date, PPI’s Learning Opportunities are the only courses accredited by the Human Performance Association.
As the world locked down in 2020, we went to work transforming our entire suite of Training & Assessment Options & Opportunities.

What evolved has ‘leveled the playing field’ for organizations of all sizes, in all industries, anywhere in the world.

Virtually everything PPI offers is now available via (5) Options...
  • 24/7 Anytime Anywhere Interactive iLearning
  • LIVE Virtual Learning
  • Onsite (In-Classroom) Learning
  • ​Public Venues & Offerings
  • Host-a-Course Options
Further...
because the context, content, and messaging is seamless and consistent across all venues, Options can be mixed and matched to meet virtually any budget or logistical constraint.

Our APPROACH

"You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” 

- Buckminster Fuller

Our approach to helping you improve performance is entirely different than the “triggers, rules, and tools” used by…virtually everyone else.

Now don’t get us wrong- triggers, rules, and tools are useful and [some] even necessary. The ‘secret’ though... lies in HOW to get people to use them.

Also, don't mistakenly think the PPI Approach is some type of "airy-fairy-group-hug-kumbaya".

This is a hard-core-tell-the-truth approach to growing Team Member Ownership & Accountability (at all levels) because it lays bare and leverages the true source of accountability and what it means to ‘be accountable’.
To be clear...
Human Performance is not 'Rocket Science'.
It’s…people science.

And while even this might sound complicated and intimidating,  when you ‘boil things down’ to First Principles, Human and Organizational Performance can be quite simple, straight-forward, and quick to implement.

Here are the basics:
  • Things are the way they are because they got that way
  • 84 to 94 percent of all mistakes on the job are ‘setup’ by process, programmatic, or organizational issues
  • ​People come to work wanting to do a good job
  • ​Those who do the work have the answers
Using these (4) Foundational Precepts, the PPI Approach systematically guides you and your Team Members to THINK different, then to FEEL different, and finally…to DO different.

As your team, your business or facility…your entire organization becomes infused with a WIN-WIN context- better, safer, proactive behaviors evolve and spread.

This grows a Work Environment of DESIRE, where you and your Team Members do right things in right ways for right reasons (because you WANT to).

Ultimately, you develop a Work Culture of One Team, with One Goal, having One Conversation.
This is where the 'magic' happens...
This is where highest & best Reliability, Efficiency, Productivity, and Safety (REPS) spontaneously evolve and continuously improve.

CULTURE is transformed.

Targets, Goals, KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) are exceeded.

You gain command of your future.

And the thing is...it's not actually 'magic' at all.
