Myndflex Employees often identify opportunities to improve their performance and wellbeing by changing how they feel and react in challenging work situations. This area of mindset change is something that coaching clients frequently present with.  Coaches who are experienced and skilled in facilitating psychological change can be highly effective in helping people to unlock self-limiting thoughts.  But external coaches with these skills are not affordable for everyone.  And internal coaches are not always fully confident in their ability to help people in this area, either because they don’t think they have all of the skills required, or because of the limited time they’re able to give each individual they’re working with.

Myndflex® is a new, cost-effective solution for organisations who want to facilitate employees’ development in becoming more self-confident, calmer or more measured at work.

Myndflex® Products

  • Online toolkit – an online, self-coaching package that employees can use independently or in their work with a coach
  • Coach workshops – workshops that deepen coaches’ professional skills in using Myndflex®, a cognitive behavioural approach.

Come and find out how Myndflex® can help you.
