The Cultural Diagnostics is designed to help High-Performance programs to understand culture as it is being experienced.

AIS’s Deep Dive service assists NSOs to embed cultures that are safe, ethical, and contribute to optimal performance outcomes.

Primary Aims

The aim of the High-Performance culture deep dive is to help High-Performance programs to:

Understand culture as it is being experienced, particularly during periods of relative stress (selection trials, peak events, training camps etc.)

Explore how ethical tensions are reconciled within the High-Performance environment

Examine the interplay between cultural wellbeing and NSO success indicators

Pursue informed strategies for cultural advancement that can be integrated into the High-Performance program

  • While an NSO may typically consider a Deep Dive following its annual AIS Culture Health Check, or in response to a specific incident or event, sports can opt to initiate Deep Dive servicing at any time
  • A Deep Dive is a joint exercise between the AIS and the NSO conducted wholly in a spirit of continuous learning. Deep Dives are not linked to NSO funding, and the strictest confidentiality is maintained at all times.
