About this course
This Foundation Course, as its name suggests, gives you a firm foundation to build on, making you ready for all of the changes you may need to make in your life.
Firstly we'll give you a recap of who we are, and explain the methods and technology we use in our courses. We'll introduce you to how Cognitive Biases (problems in your thinking) that could be holding you back, and also show you some of the Success Heuristics (or better mental shortcuts) that people use to succeed in their lives life.
We aim to make you more aware of yourself particularly of how you, the people around you, and how society itself may be influencing you in negative ways. We will help you to think with more clarity about your current situation and introduce you to some basic coaching methods you can use to get you from where you are now, to where you want to be.
Then last part of the foundation course introduces you to some of the mental 'hang-ups' that make a person reluctant to change, and we'll work you through the most frequent problems that stop people in their tracks even before they get to that first hurdle.
Our lessons are short and concise, factual, and all in easily absorbable chunks, highlighting the common problems seen in real people and the improvements that can be made to how they think.
We use real-life examples of the problems and the results that work gathered from my many years of talking to people with similar issues.
We hope you enjoy the course and take the time you need to take to get the most from it. It's not a crash course, its a course structured to take you forwards in small considered steps towards a new you. Throughout the course I ask you some questions. I'd recommend you read each lesson and then go away and spend some time answering these questions in the workbook provided. The answers will get you to think outside of what's holding you back and make the learning from the lessons stick.
With each lesson you will start to gain more clarity, you will begin to think more clearly, help you to finally overcome some of the obstacles in your way, helping you to get ready for change so that you can build the foundations of your new life.
