People are: Unique, Complex & Sometimes Unpredictable! • Beliefs: We are a product of what we believe is possible Beliefs Choices – What we believe, together with our experiences, form our attitudes – Our attitudes in action form our behaviours that others experience – Our behaviours lead either to ‘Behavioural Waste’ or ‘growth’ that impact on the business • Choice: Only we can choose – The direction in which to travel – To change and influence our performance – To become who we are capable of being • The choice ours 3 ©2013 Mind Fit Ltd All Rights Reserved
  • 4. Mind Fitness Definition Mind Fitness is a naturally learnt ability to perform to your optimum in different situations, through "Can-Do" attitudes and behaviours, and a winning mind. (Williams, 2010) Mind Un-Fitness is also a naturally learnt state that leads to ‘can’t do’ and ‘won’t do’ attitudes resulting in avoidance, blocking behaviours and underperformance Performance is not simply a matter of how capable one is, but of how capable one believes oneself to be (Pajares 2002) ©2013 Mind Fit Ltd All Rights Reserved

  • 6. Accredited Mind Fit® Process “I have assessed numerous programmes and processes over the years in all different types of organisations and have seen mixed results. I was not prepared for what happened. The result was staggering in all areas. Not only did production improve to an amazing level but the method of working and the initiatives taken were driven by everyone. This resulted in a team of people cooperating and collaborating together for the benefit of them and the company. They became totally engaged.” Assessor Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) Mind Fit people transform performance 6 ©2013 Mind Fit Ltd All Rights Reserved

  • 13. • “Mo winning was the best Mo Farah Creates Olympic History moment for me. As The First By Becoming a distance runner myself, I really Briton To Win Gold In Both The 5,000 & 10,000m Finals The Winning Mind appreciated what Mo had to go through to win. This was an athlete who had reached the point where he was [regularly] coming seventh or eighth and everyone thought that [this] was his level. • He took a look at himself and realised everything had to change – lifestyle, training, coach, the lot. He did all that to ready himself for the Games, then went out there and won.” • (Steve Cram, Olympic Silver Medallist, Daily Telegraph Magazine, 18th August 2012)
  • 14. The Mind is the Key “I think 70% or 80% is about attitude. Once you have made sure that everybody’s prepared for the task, it’s just that – it’s an attitude. The good news in life is that you can choose that. You can’t always choose or change the circumstances in your arena, but you can always choose to change your attitude.” Frank Dick, International Athletic coach Success depends almost entirely on how effectively you learn to manage the game's two ultimate adversaries: the course and yourself. Jack Nicklaus, Golf Pro Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.

  • 15. Employers Hire on Attitude not Skills • Employers prioritise job applicants with the right attitude rather than the skills listed on their CVs • Recruitment group Reed polled over 1,000 business owners to see what key traits employers look for in job seekers. – 96% of employers would hire someone who did not have a complete set of skills but displayed the right attitude over an applicant with the perfect skills but who lacked the right mindset. – Two thirds of employers said they if had to reduce their workforce they would fire someone with a perfect skills set over someone with deficient skills but sporting the right attitude. ©2013 Mind Fit Ltd All Rights Reserved
