If you find it ‘difficult to seal the deal’/are fearful of the prospect of speaking to a large group/have limiting beliefs that are holding you back/can’t seem to connect with others/lack confidence in certain situations … or have simply lost your ‘mojo’ – we can help you to identify and develop better management and interpersonal skills and communications techniques as well as improve self-awareness, self-confidence and self-esteem. In this way, you can maximise your potential, develop your skills and enhance your performance.
The aim is for YOU to see and get to the solution with our guidance. Understanding the ‘way you tick’ will provide you with the skillset to enable you to combine personal growth with commercial success. Our aim is to help you gain a competitive edge, or in Forces’ speak “Get inside someone’s decision cycle” – the ‘O.O.D.A. Loop’ (Observe, Orient, Decide, Act). If you can get to A before your rival, you will gain that edge.
The Business Package of mindset development training that we offer is called “BE YOU … AT YOUR BEST – How to Harness the Power of the Mind in order to Maximise your Performance in the Business Environment”. It is aimed at Entrepreneurs, Business Owners, Leadership Teams, Sales and Marketing Teams and HR etc… who, for whatever reason don’t do themselves justice and underperform – maybe not by much but just enough to make a difference – and that difference might mean a lost opportunity, a deal goes south, disharmony amongst co-workers etc…
It is rooted in NLP which has variously been described as “the study of subjective experience through the use of a set of concepts and tools designed and empirically proven to increase personal effectiveness” or as “the gateway to the reprogramming of the mind and the key to the difference that makes the difference” or simply as “the study of excellence and how to reproduce it”.
The Manual contains 28 sections of training, 35 exercises and templates which are quick, effective, safe, simple and easy to use and 80 slides. You get a video-recording of the training as a further tool – and separate 1-2-1 coaching is also available. It really is, as we call it, a ‘Self-Help Toolkit for Life’. An NLP Presupposition states “You Already Have All the Resources You Need” – i.e. you have it within you and it’s about the discovery and management of your ‘abilities’/’resources’/’talents’ – the training is designed for you to be able to ensure that you are always “YOU … AT YOUR BEST”.
