Our Story

Founded in 2004 by four individuals from the oil and gas industry, Equilibria has since grown to become a global organization, with close to 80 coaches across six continents.

We have more than a decade of experience helping others embrace and leverage diversity of thought, and harnessing that diversity to elevate personal, professional and organizational performance.

We coach organizations and individuals, helping them understand and apply our proprietary Personality Diversity Indicator (PDI) to reduce errors, minimize risks and enhance overall human performance.

By applying the PDI through our core coaching tools – the E-Colors and Personal Intervention – communication, leadership, teamwork and safety will be enhanced. Individuals will be empowered to become less reactive and more responsive, and to live and lead with conscious intent.

Our core value is people first and we are passionate about helping individuals, teams and organizations realize their full potential.

Some of our milestones include:







APR

We asked ourselves what form of recognition and reward works for different individuals. We discovered that the vastly varying answers depended on each person’s individual E-Color combination.

JAN

We discovered the remarkable predictability of how people could get hurt based on their personality tendencies, expressed through their E-Colors. We also found a direct link between personality and the factors that make it difficult for individuals to stop a job or interrupt an unsafe act.

MAR

We discovered the potential in understanding how our personality, expressed through our E-Colors, dictates our reactions. It also became clear that our character dictates our responses. Personal Intervention, a tool to apply this knowledge was born.

JAN

We explored more ways to empower others through the Personal Intervention tool. We created the Pause and Play button concept on reactions to prevent incidents, injuries, hurt feelings and arguments.

MAR

We collaborated with Fisher Improvement Technologies (FIT) to develop the next logical step in human performance. Combining FIT’s science of human performance with Equilibria’s individualized approach to Personality Diversity, we created a proprietary technology to help organizations reduce errors and increase performance.

Ben McMahon

Global Development Manager, Equilibria in Sports

As early as the age of four when all he wanted for Christmas was a Dan Marino Miami Dolphin’s helmet, jersey and shoulder pads, Ben has taken his love of Football to help others bring out the best in themselves.  Today, he continues this journey as the Global Development Manager of Equilibria in Sports.

In this role, Ben looks for opportunities to help individual athletes, teams, coaches and sports organizations reach their full potential through personality diversity.  Ben believes that understanding our own strengths and potential limiters allows us to embrace the personalities of teammates, resulting in better performance both on and off the field. 

Born in London and raised in Oxford, Ben played soccer when young but always was drawn to American football as he listened to games broadcast on Armed Forces Radio. When his Dad took him to see the World League London Monarchs in the early ‘90’s, he was hooked for good.  He started concentrating on football at 16 as a member of the Oxford Saints as a Cornerback.  Unfortunately, tearing his ACL in half sidelined Ben as a player, but changed his life as he began his coaching career.

At the time there were 20,000 college and amateur footballers in England.  Due to Injuries in 1999, Ben and the Oxford Saints had begun a youth team to play flag football for, under 10, 12 and 16 and went on to Win a National Championship in their first year. After winning the National Championship, BAFCA named Ben its Head Coach in the Cadet division for the year. In 2000 the British American football  Association (BAFA) asked Ben to be the head coach of the National Cadet team in the European Championship winning Silver in the competition.  

Ben was successful as a coach because he realized that sport gives youngsters the ability to get along with others.  As he says, “it teaches you affiliation.”   Feeling more included and communicating as a team can take very diverse individuals and turn marginal gains into meaningful success.
