Training Workshops & Courses
Are you keen to continuously develop, or have you decided to stick with what you've got?
Many of us have a fixed mindset: we settle for what we can do, accept our strengths and limitations as fixed. As a consequence, we may fail to grow and improve, and miss out on the satisfaction that brings. Choosing a growth mindset can change all that, and these training courses can show you haw and why.

Growth Mindset Workshop Activities
We begin by testing which mindset you are most likely to have, using a fun activity; we then explain the two mindsets, and why they matter. We then, on the half day workshop, move on to working through the SELFF model of the key ingredients for a growth mindset, and the full day also includes practical casework to develop and embed the growth mindset approach/
Never 'death by powerpoint'
We always provide a variety of learning approaches in each of our workshops.
Each workshop typically includes learning input from the trainer, supported by a range of mixed media, interactive elements, discussion and group work. Most workshops also include case work and practical skill-development activities to apply the learning, with more time dedicated to this in the longer courses.
'Want more?' resource pack
In addition to providing a copy of any slide deck, we always provide a ‘want more’ section, of curated resources including book summaries, podcasts, downloads and articles.

Mindset Training Frequently Asked Quesitons
Isn't your mindset a factor of birth, not learning?
It's true that we may have a predisposition, or tendency, towards one or the other at birth, but the biggest influence by far is our upbringing, at home or at school; so the key point is that everyone can develop either mindset: most fixed mindsets are accidental, and you can choose to invest in one for personal development and growth.

Someone might have a real growth mindset for learning a new language, but a fixed mindset in their inability to put up a shelf....
Which of these courses should I take?
The 90-minute course will give you a clear overview and the option to test which you are more likely to be, if any; the half day course looks at the SELFF model in detail, and the full day allows you to develop an action plan, based on casework, to improve your growth mindset skills and potential.
