How to Grow Your Business by Unlocking the Potential of Your Secret Selves
Ask any successful entrepreneur and they will likely tell you mindset is critical to your success in business. Yet, people tend to underestimate how much mindset actually impacts on all aspects of your business. Essentially, mindset is the way you understand and respond to the world around you. It’s about your thinking, attitudes, beliefs and behaviours and can influence everything from the way we build relati nullonships, problem solve, our creative thinking, how we perceive success and failure, valuing our own worth and more. During this session, we will explore a coaching tool that I utilise with clients to help you understand and define your secret selves and delve into the roles they play within your business thinking. This will empower you to harness your secret selves to your full advantage to go forth and kick arse in business.
