We appreciate that maintaining a positive mindset can be a challenge especially during these uncertain times. We are all having to adapt and change our usual behaviors in order to keep growing and prepare for a new working environment.
During lockdown, and after listening to our clients, we have created Mind-Setting to provide some content, insights and inspiration that we hope will be of value to both individuals and teams. 

What is Mind-Setting?

Mind-Setting is a new online personal development programme and step by step blueprint to help users optimise their performance. It integrates the best sports practices with proven personal development skills and habits of high performers, to help users to build the best version of themselves in their professional, sporting and everyday life.

Who is Mind-Setting for?

Mind-Setting is designed for individuals who want to reach their goals quickly and efficiently. It is understood that performance comes from achieving excellence in 3 areas, namely; Knowledge - Skills - Behaviours.

Mind-Setting focuses on the latter of these three divisions, and will guide users through the essential habits that make up effective behaviours - gleaned from industry leaders and effective performers in sport and business and that users

can transfer into their own world. We have identified and modelled the key skills and habits from sport and of successful people from other fields, and converted them into practices (a coaching point from either Steve or Roger)

that anyone can develop, and apply to everyday life.

Which Mind-Setting skills does the programme cover?

From research, we have discovered that Outstanding Performers recurrently display the 20 key characteristics listed below. Using this pattern, we have converted each characteristic into a Practice, enabling users to become more effective and successful.

The Programme takes you through 5 stages of development as follows

How does the programme work?

Through the 5 learning phases, users are introduced to one of the 20 Practices via a short video. Each video will encourage users to begin envisioning how creating more positive habits can be applied to their own individual journey. Each Practice builds on the previous - as part of a specific step by step system to deliver high performance.
