We use the following as a framework and foundation to build the development journey for each leader. We are all unique and learn in different styles, so these assessments allow us to understand each person’s map
of the world and then connect them to the skills they require to grow and flourish.

The 6 Human Needs

These core needs drive every decision we make as human beings. Why do we do the things we do? Why
is it that we measure success and value by attention and status, yet frown upon complacency? What force
drives and shapes all of our emotions, actions, quality of life and, ultimately, our destinies? The answers to these
questions can all be explained by learning about the 6 human needs. Understanding your own needs and
psychology can not only help you avoid poor behaviours and habits but can also help you achieve your goals.

Emotional Intelligence

You’re managing a large group of diverse working styles, and no one seems to be getting along. Perhaps you find friendships falling by the wayside because everyone is always “busy,” or your relationships with family are strained by a lack of understanding. What do all of these situations have in common? You can help fix them by learning how to improve emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is the ability to engage others’ feelings while understanding, managing and expressing your own. It involves empathy, or the ability to feel the same way someone else is feeling. But goes beyond that to involve other skills like conflict resolution and building rapport, as well as the ability to regulate your own emotions.

Brain Mapping

The brain is like any other organ in the body. If you exercise it, it performs better. An efficient brain can accomplish more, with greater accuracy, in less time. Neurofeedback provides high performers with the tools to train and exercise neural nets in the same way as one exercises and builds muscles. The personalised programme makes more efficient use of brain resources by strengthening specific neural connections. Many high performers have issues related to long-term stress and use neurofeedback simply to promote stress recovery and improve sleep quality, both essential elements to long-term brain performance, endurance and resilience. We incorporate brain mapping 12 months into the Pathway Journey for leaders. The main purpose of the map is to see where people are stuck, to see what it is that is obstructing them, and ultimately find a meditation for them, that suits them. People are always drawn to what they are already good at, and that’s not what we are looking for at all. We want to know what they are not so good at. We want to build up your weak areas, not strengthen the ones that are already strong.

Wheel Of Life

No matter how accomplished or happy we are, we all have areas of our lives that could use some improvement. The Wheel of Life is a way to take a good, hard look at each facet of your life and rate its relative quality level so you can uncover which areas need more attention than others. By getting this “helicopter” view of your life, you can identify where you are excelling and where there is room for improvement – to discover where the gaps are between where you are today and where you want to be.

Disc Profiling

The DISC assessment examines how an individual ranks in the four areas of behaviour – Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Conscientiousness. Designed for both individuals who want to identify and maximise their strengths and motivators and organisations looking to integrate high-performance teams. The assessment can provide a common language that people can use to understand themselves and others. For example, you may score highly in dominance and influence while your colleague ranks in steadiness and conscientiousness. This can lead to misunderstandings and conflict if you and your colleague don’t attempt to understand what makes you different and how to best communicate with each other. None of the DISC personality traits are inherently positive or negative. The test and results are non-judgmental and help those who take it respond to conflict, resolve problems and discover what lies behind their common habits or working styles.

Representational Systems

The doors of perception are our senses: our eyes, nose, ears, mouth and skin. They are our points of contact with the outside world. In the same way that the senses are used to filter experiences, they are also used to structure our thinking and our communication. According to Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), the ways in which we assimilate, store and encode information in our mind (brain) – through sight, hearing, touch, taste or smell – are called “Representational Systems”. Each person has a predominant representational system, knowing self and one another means we work closer as a team, become better communicators to self and others. We start here on a journey to understand our own neurology. We use the above as a framework and foundation to build the development journey for each leader. We are all unique and learn in different styles, so these assessments allow us to understand each person’s map of the world and then connect them to the skills they require to grow and flourish.

The Pathway Benefits:

Understand the mind and your own neurology. This leads to understanding others better.

What our Clients say

Testimonials

Stevie understands people and why we do what we do better than anyone I have ever met. He has studied NLP exclusively with co-founder Dr Bandler over a number of years but also draws heavily upon 25 years in business to create what is a life changing experience on his programmes for executives and senior teams. Stevie is a catalyst for change and strives to help people achieve beyond their self imposed limitations. I would highly recommend working with him.
