Optimizing Your Business
MIND 4 BUSINESS
Creating a business culture, building staff motivation and engagement or just the day to day management of staff, time and workload are a few of the challenges in running any organization from large multinationals to owner-run companies.
From Chief Exec to Shop Floor everyone experiences their own stress and need to be able to perform to their best ability no matter what else is going on. Becoming aware of how our mind influences the decisions we make allows us to get better at managing our thinking and improve the chances of having the outcome we want.
We offer a range of solutions to help your people, managers and executives achieve their full potential through understanding how they think and behave. Our programmes are built around the key approaches of improving emotional skills and practical learning on how to put these skills into use.

WHAT CAN BE ACHIEVED
Using this programme allows us to look at how we develop purpose and direction for staff and create the conditions for building great teams and businesses.
We do this by giving your people:
Knowledge of why they behave the way they do
Insight into how this affects them on a day to day basis, introduce some
Skills that they can use to improve their lives and then reinforced with ongoing
Support to ensure they stay on the right track. (yes I know the acronym is KISS but didn't want to make it too obvious!)
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT OUR WORK
The development sessions from Paul at OptimizeYou have really helped communication and relationships within the team.
Tolerance and acceptance of our ‘chimps’ means that situations that might otherwise blow up into a dispute simply do not and instead we can smile and sympathise with a colleague whose chimp has taken over e.g. Last week one of the team gave a rather abrupt response to a colleague, promptly said ‘that was my chimp’, and we all laughed.
It sounds like a small thing but understanding each other makes for a much happier team, who then work better together and so are more productive and more likely to stick together.
One team member in particular who was not achieving her potential, and was not in a happy place, has really blossomed. She has self-belief, greater confidence and as a result is taking on roles at work that she wouldn’t have a year ago. I’m very grateful for the extra support she has received.
Instead of potentially losing her, I have a highly productive team member who can look forward to developing and progressing her career further.
