The My Kinda Life® Foundation - For Teams
A Unique Leadership Development Programme Helping Teams Create a Competitive Edge From The Inside-Out
How individuals meet and treat themselves determines how they meet, and treat other people.
If individuals meet themselves with brutality, and disallow their full emotional experience, they inadvertently disallow it in others too. This can dramatically impair the impact and power of how well teams function. When individuals learn to meet and treat themselves (and their experiences) with companionability and kindness, they will be able to empathise with and relate to others with ease – laying the foundations for being effective and productive team members.
This unique leadership development programme guides teams through the methodology outlined in my book My Kinda Life® to help change deeply held beliefs and behaviours that now don’t serve the team’s mission, so individuals can become more effective team members and find more fulfillment and happiness through their work.
Are you ready to become the most effective team you can be?
Learn to build companionable relationship with yourselves and
silence your inner demons, so that you can relate and connect more effectively without fatigue and conflict.
- Are you ready for deep, lasting change?
- Are you committed to empathic team relations?
- Can you commit to weekly sessions?
- Can you commit to learning to treat yourself better?
THE MY KINDA LIFE® FOUNDATION PROGRAMME
Month 1 - Your Unique Team Template
Discovering Inner Brutality Templates
In the first month we explore the ways the inner brutality of your team members scuppers success, and prevents everyone from enjoying their work. We discover your unique team template; identifying areas for improvement, so that team members can behave in a way that creates the positive impact you seek.
Month 2 - Emotional Palette Extension
Embracing Uncomfortable Emotions
We all leave childhood and enter adulthood with an emotional palette suited to our family style. This most often means we are less comfortable with certain emotions compared to others. To lead a happy and fulfilling life (and work well in a team) individuals have to extend and fill their palette up to all emotions. We focus on strategies for this in month 2.
Month 3 - Installing Companionability
Challenging Deeply Held Beliefs
We make decisions about who we are based on what we’ve been through. Learning and installing companionability to yourself is essential for empathy with others. Companionability with all your experiences creates a competitive and resilient edge to your teams. This is a rarely tapped resource that the My Kinda Life® Foundation Programme allows teams access to.
2 weeks out from the end of month 3 of the programme, we will conduct a thorough review of progress so far to see where your team members are at.
After the initial 3 months, some team members will feel they have made enough significant progress to continue on their own, while others may need some further support.
The My Kinda Life® Foundational Programme is very personal journey, so we can tailor the length of the programme and level of support to your individual team member needs for as long as you need it, in whatever format is most beneficial.
Yes. I’m bound by professional standards to keep all sessions and communication with clients strictly confidential.
If you are curious about the My Kinda Life® Foundation Programme, the first step would be to book a free initial consultation. At the end of the consultation, you will have a good idea to whether or not this will be the right approach for your team.
Alternatively, you and your team can read the My Kinda Life Book or listen to the My Kinda Life Podcast where you will learn more about the methodology and how it works.
If at any point during the 1st month of the programme you decide that it isn’t for you, we offer a full refund.
The programme is designed for both 1:1 work and with teams.
If you require more information about how the My Kinda Life® Foundation Programme could be beneficial, please get in touch for more information.
The delivery of the programme is tailored around your teams schedule, commitments and whatever level of support you require.
Typically, we find the best progress is made 1 weekly 1 hour sessions (over zoom, face-to-face, or phone) along with check-ins as and when needed.
With that in mind, we can design the programme around whatever works best for you and your team.
