People who are extremely successful and want to get more successful find themselves stuck, lost in the daily rush and with no one to turn to. As a result, they get more impatient, serious or discouraged. In moments like these, they lose perspective, clarity, freshness of thought, enthusiasm, and all those wonderful things that helped them get in the leading position in the first place. To top it off, as leaders get swallowed up in their work, they can become more distracted and disengaged in their personal lives. These are the times when their relationships are in trouble, which can ultimately affect their performance at work.
When leaders are in the day-to-day "battle", everything starts to look like a very serious problem. As a consequence, they become tenser, stressed out and tight. They become frustrated while dealing with challenging/difficult people and it becomes more and more difficult to stay focused and have a clear vision. While this is a recurrent scenario, you'll also see that there are leaders who don't seem to get more stressed when they take more responsibilities, there are leaders who are clear minded, have exceptional clarity of thought, are rational and composed.
This is not just limited to CEOs and C-level executives. Entrepreneurs, community leaders, celebrities, artists, athletes and other high-performing individuals also recognize the same situations.
At the top of the company, like the CEO, you no longer have a boss in the traditional sense and it all only relies on you. And there isn't much training for that either. Of course, they already know their answers, that's why they got where they got, what I do is help them clear their minds so they get the clarity they need to help them run their businesses.
This program is designed to generate the maximum impact with very little effort in a short period of time. Another way of saying "Twice as far, in half the time, with half the effort".
During this 4-day one-on-one intensive mind spa, we'll explore where your biggest struggles are as a leader, where your power is and teach you the logic that will raise your level of effectiveness and satisfaction in your leadership.
During the program, people learn how their internal world, their own thinking in the moment, is the single biggest influencer in their performance as a leader, they learn about the only thing they are ever up against in their lives. They develop an appreciation and a respect for the role their internal mental life has in their day-to-day lives and how that influences others.
We simplify, and we demystify thought, clarity, creativity, fear and insecurity by looking at the fundamental principles of Mind, Consciousness and Thought.
We do not focus on building skills and competencies or changing the behaviour of the leader. We don't give people things to do. There's no homework. There are no written exercises. No exams. All we ask is that you come with an open mind and reflect on the things we discus in our conversations.
That's the differentiator! As leaders understand that there's a bigger variable behind performance and how the whole setup works, their skills, competencies and behaviour naturally improve. Our clients leave our program with an understanding of how leaders do their best thinking and how to point themselves in that direction of their best thinking.

"How will I know I'm being successful?"
You'll feel good. But honestly, not always. Because this doesn't cure the times you feel bad, just helps you understand why that happens and how to navigate those times with more ease.
Everybody that I speak with whether in business, sports, or any other place, tell me that one of the most important part of their jobs is working with other people and that is one of the things that school didn't teach us, even the university didn't teach us. It's not about the subjects, it's how to get around the people at work. We've all seen it that the most successful people are not necessarily the smartest, but the ones who are able to work with other people better and to see the potential in other people, to see the humanity in other people, because the way the mind works is universal. It works the same for everyone.
Is this coaching? On a certain extent it is.
"Is this the same as sports coaching?" someone might ask. People hear about the high-level performing athletes having mental coaching, is it like that? And the answer is - A part of it yes. Think of a sport that has high level mental aspect to it, like tennis, or golf, or hockey, or whatever sport where the high-level performance is associated with a great degree of mental pressure they use mind coaches that use the principles we share here. In the same time, the top of the business world, the CEOs - they don't have people to tell them what to do, they work with people who help them get to the answers they need, who point them in the direction of their best thinking.
