Business

Training to give your workforce stress-reducing techniques and coping mechanisms, supporting them towards a state of better mental health.

Mind Fitness is a powerful and highly effective one day training workshop and six week follow-up programme. Mind Fitness is designed for businesses to enable your workforce to live and work at their full potential. They will learn how to:

– Build resilience

Each attendee leaves with a Workbook that contains a six week follow-up programme and a personal roadmap to guide continued change. This ensures that improvements are lasting, and that your organisation continues to derive benefit from an increasingly effective team.

It is a unique, easy to access programme that will enable your teams to live and work at their full potential.

Why Mind Fitness

The UK Health and Safety Executive reports that over 11 million working days are lost each year due to stress and stress-related illness. The recently published Thriving At Work report commissioned by the UK government calculates that the financial cost of poor mental health to British business is £42b per year.
The report also states that the return on investment in supporting mental health in the workplace yields a tenfold benefit to the business. This is a compelling reason to support your workforce in addressing the causes of unhealthy stress and poor mental health that may be impacting performance in your organisation. Mind Fitness can help you.
It’s a compelling case to address the negative effects on your business.

Content

Mind Fitness helps people to get out of their own way by uniquely combining Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Mindfulness to create an accessible and thoroughly enjoyable hands-on learning experience. Outdated ‘alternative’ perceptions of Mindfulness have been superceded, as state of the art neural analysis has strongly supported positive long-term outcomes.

Delivery

The collective backgrounds of the Mind Fitness team bring together cognitive coaching, business management and theatre, and we have employed all three to create this impactful programme. Every session is designed to be informative, practical, interactive and fun. Each segment of the programme is immediately applied through an exercise that reinforces the learning and deepens the understanding.

We unlock a fascinating process of self-discovery and personal development that will build confidence and engagement and place your workforce on the road to better mental health. They will learn to manage stress and anxiety by exploring resilience and challenging unhelpful beliefs. They will understand the truth about positive and negative stress, the neuroscience behind change, the value of reflection through mindfulness practice, and how to re-focus unhealthy negative emotions and thinking errors.

  • From my perspective, there are two main benefits with Mind Fitness. Firstly it’s an effective programme that uses neuroscience to improve performance. Secondly, it gives a whole range of techniques that staff can use to reduce stress and build resilience. We clearly need to look after the mental health or our workforce. Mind Fitness brings together ethics and the bottom line. An employee that is Mind Fit will be more positive and motivated, and will inevitably contribute more to the business.

  • I can’t tell you how positive the feedback has been from our Mind Fitness workshop. In supervision sessions, all participants mentioned how useful they found the training and how pleased they were that we were considering mental health and wellbeing. I’ve had a positive reaction from 100% of people who have given feedback. Thanks so much for a really empowering, thought provoking and helpful day.

FAQ’s

Will I have to share personal information that might not be appropriate in front of colleagues?

No, you won’t. There are questions that you will answer in the workbook which becomes, through the day, a personal road map, but these will never be shared.

Is Mind Fitness something I have to keep doing to feel the benefit?

The longer you do it for the more benefit you feel. There is a simple six-week follow-up programme in the Workbook, by which time it will be embedded in your daily lives. But the Mind Fitness programme is designed to fit into the busiest of lives. Ten minutes a day is what you need and we guarantee that you will save that (and much more) with your more focused thinking.

Does the Mind Fitness programme work for people with special needs?

Yes absolutely. The Mind Fitness team is trained to work with people of all abilities and disabilities, and all exercises can be adapted. Please let us know if there is anyone you feel would benefit from additional support. Let us know if there are exercises to be repositioned to work most effectively with, for example, an autistic group.

Will I have to revisit the negative things that have happened in the past?

The longer you do it for the more benefit you feel. There is a simple six-week follow-up programme in the Workbook, by which time it will be embedded in your daily lives. But the Mind Fitness programme is designed to fit into the busiest of lives. Ten minutes a day is what you need and we guarantee that you will save that (and much more) with your more focused thinking.

Does the programme work best for people at similar levels of responsibility or for people who work together in a team?

We have worked both, for example a group of managers, customer service advisers etc and with mixed level teams. With both cases it has the added advantage of working as a team building session, with many saying how much more they appreciated their colleagues after the course.

I see that you are based in the South East, are you prepared to travel?

Yes, Mind Fitness travel nationally. We also have representatives in two countries booking for us, but at this stage we can only travel abroad if we have blocks of bookings.

We would like to book a session but do not have a space on our premises big enough to host it. Is there anything that can be done?

We are happy to find a venue close to your offices. Alternatively we have had two companies come together for sessions, with one of the companies hosting.

We would like to book a session but do not have a space on our premises big enough to host it. Is there anything that can be done?

Prior to the session we will meet up with you so that we can discuss the structure of the agenda and any issues that you would like us to focus on. We will then tailor the session accordingly. This is done on Skype if you are more than 40 miles away.

We are too small a company to have enough staff to attend the session. Is there any way we can still access a Mind Fitness session?

We are starting to work with Local Authorities and Enterprise Organisations to set up sessions that bring together representatives from small companies. Email us if you are interested in this.

Coaching

Coaching is an important part of the Mind Fitness package. We can coach face-to-face or on Skype. This can be follow-up coaching after a workshop or solo skills-development work.
