About the MindSwitch programme

MindSwitch gives leaders a performance edge. You will learn powerful mindset and resilence-building practices that you can easily incorporate into your daily life.

MindSwitch is like no other leadership development programme. Most leadership programmes overlook a fundamental attribute that influences how leaders think, learn, and behave, and that is mindset. 

The MindSwitch Programme equips leaders with modern mindset practices that support mental and emotional resilience, backed by neuroscience, and designed to keep you, our precious leaders, stronger, happier and more productive in the face of constant change and complexity.

We've all had days when we know our mindset is not serving us well. The mindset you bring to your day profoundly affects the person you are being and how your day unfolds. We all know this, but few people prepare and optimise their mindsets for the day ahead. 

It's hardly surprising that we have little knowledge or skill in this domain, because no one talked about or taught mental wellbeing at school, until more recently that is. Neuroscience has made leaps and bounds in recent years and we now know, mental resilience and agility improve with regular practice of learnable techniques, much like going to the gym for a physical workout. 

The Mindswitch Leadership Programme will help you:

  • understand how your mind works
  • learn how to befriend and optimise your mind for better performance
  • increase your energy and optimism levels 
  • learn techniques proven to reduce the physiological symptoms of stress
  • establish healthy boundaries and habits so you can pace yourself
  • improve your productivity and focus levels
  • feel less overwhelm and enjoy a better coping mechanism
  • feel more equipped to support and empower others
  • create a leadership style that is authentic for you, that you're proud of
  • arrive home in a good frame of mind for your loved ones
  • move from being in survival mode to your creative flow
  • improve your career prospects and take your leadership capabilities to the next level
  • become recognised as a leader among leaders.
