Background

Our work translates over 40 years of research about how people can fulfil their potential in a stimulating and interactive way. We are experts in our field and have delivered training within business, education and sporting environments in Guernsey and across Europe.

 

We deliver bespoke workshops, training and coaching that answers questions about why some people achieve their potential and others do not. The key is not about ability but people’s beliefs about their abilities. These beliefs affect people’s behaviours, performance and whether they achieve their best in all aspects of life.

We help people understand two different mindsets: a fixed mindset and a growth mindset as identified by Stanford University's Professor Carol Dweck.

People with a fixed mindset believe that abilities (including intelligence) are fixed and cannot be changed. They are less likely to be the best they can be as their beliefs will limit their opportunities. People holding fixed mindset beliefs are more likely to avoid challenges, give up when facing setbacks, see effort at fruitless, ignore negative feedback, see failure as a lack of talent/ability, feel threatened by the success of others and see potential as best being measured by current performance.

People with a growth mindset believe that abilities can be developed.  Their major goal is to learn and hence they are more likely to realise their potential as they strive to create opportunities to learn and develop. They are more likely to embrace challenges, persist in the face of setbacks, see effort as the path to mastery, learn from criticism and failure, find inspiration in the success of others and see potential as something which cannot be measured.
