Mindskills Focus

Vision & Purpose

“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.”
“I don’t much care where –”
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.”
―Alice in Wonderland

Life does not “JUST HAPPEN”. Through a process of coaching, Mindskills helps you to align your real life vision with tangible and achievable steps. Understanding your “WHY” (“Why am I in this business? / Why do I want to be successful? / Why am I here?”) creates great clarity and clear direction, and plays an important role in the success of your business and personal life.

Leadership

“True leadership creates meaning” – Dr Caren Scheepers

Just like any thriving community or sports team, there’s typically an influential leader behind every successful brand. For large companies, this may be the CEO. For smaller ones, it’s usually the owner. To coordinate the efforts of team members and guide a strategic vision for the brand, someone has to step up and steer the ship. The leader creates a strong purpose, resolves complications and acts as a liaison between different departments and people and keeps everyone on the same page. They are also expert motivators and know how to maximize the strengths of different team members.

People

“You manage things; you lead people”. —Grace Hopper

Empowering the right staff will help you grow and better service clients. Empowered staff also provide peace-of-mind when you take time off. Having strategies in place to mentor and coach one’s personnel is crucial to future success.

Growth

“If humans were trees, they would never be much taller than two meters.” Anon.

You will grow as high as you think you can. Your business can only grow if you’re ready for change. You will be challenged to step outside of your comfort zone. Unless you change, your situation will stay the same.

Time

“If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over? – John Wooden

We can’t bank, borrow or barter time. Excellent time management is a habit all successful people have. Do you treat time with the necessary respect?

Personal Branding

“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”― Dr. Seuss

What makes you unique and relevant and differentiated for your target audience? If you understand your strengths, purpose, passions and values you will be able to separate yourself from your competitors and really stand out. Personal branding sends a clear, consistent message about who you are and what you have to offer. A strong authentic personal brand helps you to become known for what you are good at, it sets you apart from everyone else and it positions you as a niche expert.
