Business Coaching Programmes

Mind Strengths has developed a range of core training workshops, all of which are designed to be complementary to our business coaching programmes. The workshops themselves are interchangeable, meaning that you can select a particular subject for the morning session and merge with another topic for the afternoon session. Not many businesses will offer you that degree of flexibility.

We actively encourage clients to structure a full-day session to suit their needs. For example, why not consider a half-day workshop followed by some 1-1 coaching sessions in the afternoon? This helps cement the learning from the morning and ensures that your team gets the most from the day. Equally, we deliver all of our core training on a 1-1 coaching basis, if you wish to focus on the development of particular individuals.

Please find below a full list of our training workshops, together with in-depth programme details. A quick glance summary with in-depth programme details can be found on our coaching programmes page. All training workshop content can be adapted and changed to suit client needs and we also write bespoke training workshops on request.

We have also designed some very successful Leadership Development Master Classes for schools and academies that help middle leaders and senior leaders with their career progression.
