Examples of corporate situations and behaviours where Mindsport training has been effective.

All of the scenarios are taken from real-world anecdotes. We have kept any client information confidential.

Problem

A business team set themselves tough targets to achieve during the following quarter. The team became excessively driven and motivated by results, and consequently created unwanted pressure in the workplace. This led to a decrease in sales, and slower business growth.

Solution

After training with Mindsport the organisation acquired a set of tools and strategies that got the team focused on the processes behind successful outcomes. Instead of focusing directly on results, the team were encouraged to focus on the building blocks behind success. This lowered workplace stress levels and increased workplace confidence, as team members now saw business success as being directly within their control.


Problem

A local business wanted to improve the efficiency of their workforce. Executives within the team were not using their time effectively, and consequently damaged the business’s growth.

Solution

Mindsport made the team aware of where and how they were placing their time using Steven Covey’s model of time-management. This led them to re-prioritise their workplace goals. Mindsport then taught the team how to build appropriate workplace reminders to fire off the right business behaviour at the right time.


Problem

A business team was placed under extreme pressure to hit tough targets. Unfortunately the current business leader felt that his coaching style was not helping the team perform at their best.

Solution

Through a consultancy based programme the business leader was able to identify his leadership style as being predominantly consultative. This encouraged the team to over-deliberate on their business decisions, causing them to achieve less. The business leader was shown ways to develop a more autocratic leadership style when the team were placed under pressure. This helped the team to act fast, and prevented them from being paralysed by over-analysis during challenging times.


Problem

An organisation had personnel that felt un-motivated to fulfil certain business roles.

Solution

Through an analysis of the team’s strengths and weaknesses, and using models to help them uncover preferred business roles Mindsport helped them to re-structure their operations to work to the team members strengths.


Problem

The business became aware that there was a lack of interaction between the higher-management personnel and the middle-managers within the organisation. This led the middle-managers to feel disconnected from the overall vision and direction of the business.

Solution

Understanding that the higher-management staff had a finite amount of time to allocate to each middle-manager, Mindsport helped the team develop short, sharp coaching sessions designed to keep everyone feeling motivated and committed.


Problem

Within the business, key personnel found it difficult to build rapport with certain members of their team.

Solution

Mindsport introduced a set of powerful language techniques that team-members used to build stronger levels of rapport with their colleagues. They also utilised the training to improve their relationships with existing clients.
