Performance coaches at Mind Gym are responsible for training staff in numerous highly successful organisations around the world, including BT and Deutsche Bank.
Octavious Black, founder of the programme believes that the scheme works so well because essentially high powered workers and parents actually have a lot in common.
”He explains that both parents and workers will be affected by what psychologists call the “imposter syndrome” – where you believe it is only a matter of time before your colleagues – or your children – realise that you are not up to the job.” He said.
Black set up Parent Gym (funded by Mind Gym) in a bid to help those struggling with certain aspects of parenting, to learn valuable skills and ideas so they gain confidence in the way they take care of their children.
Though many of the techniques taught in the sessions are quite traditional, such as reinforcing the importance of a routine and sending children to the naughty step etc, they are to be delivered with the self-confidence and motivation that is commonly found in the corporate world.
