Coach the Mind
Started in 1998 by Michael Astrop, after a career in University lecturing and training with AUM Training in Harrogate, Coach the Mind has been delivering practical, hands-on learning programmes to professionals in the North of England, in the form of in-house training, on a 1-2-1 basis or as public courses in different venues in Leeds, Bradford, Liverpool, Barnsley and Liverpool. Coach the Mind now has Michael’s daughter, Kathryn Knight (a qualified coach and counsellor as well as trainer) on the team, along with two other specialist associates.
We provide an open training programme in the North and all of our open courses are tailored to those attending through our pre-course questionnaires. Average group sizes are often just five or six for the best learning experience.
Our in-company training solutions provide you with the greatest value for money by enabling you to reduce the price per person and yet having a tailored course to your organisation and those who are attending. The in-house courses provide a tailored approach for organisations seeking to take action to solve a particular problem or because they are planning on making a change or are currently undergoing an organisational change.
Our tailored coaching will provide you with an opportunity to focus on your specific requirements as well as adapting the coaching to your organisation’s culture and ethos. Coaching can be provided on or off site depending on your preference. The one-on-one coaching sessions are invariably concerned with specific development topics or issues and give participants the opportunity to focus on their style in relation to their role in their organisation.
Our coaches will help you development new skills and knowledge, provide impartial and confidential advice and support, help you to agree realistic goals and should you decide to take a further follow up session, review and evaluation your achievements and the new challenges you are anticipating in the future.
All our facilitators talk less, minimize slides, ask thought-provoking questions and seek to understand the thinking behind the actions so we can facilitate some form of behavioural change within the workplace. It could be said that we work from the inside out, endeavouring to encourage people to change the way they think about their jobs and therefore how they will do them in them future.
Although we operate on a nationwide basis, as we have national clients, and a new office in Southampton, the focus of our activities is north Birmingham and south of New castle. Our key locations are: Bradford, Barnsley, Liverpool, Mansfield, Manchester, York, Hull and Southampton.
