Few executives have undertaken the kind of intense and individualised training I conduct.
Hence, as the experience is probably new to you
and you probably have ideas as to what would be most useful for you,
I encourage you to select the set(s) you would like to focus on
from the 8 sets of sessions below:


(Each set of sessions (e.g., CHANGE, CHOICES,… consists of 7 x 1-hour private sessions)


1 The power of happiness
2 Why you resist change
3 How people change
4 First technique to overcome resistance to change
5 Next 5 techniques to overcome resistance to change
6 Last 3 techniques to overcome resistance to change
7 How to increase happiness


1 How external factors make bad choices likely
2 How we create our own bad choices
3 Techniques to help you make good choices
4 More techniques to help you make good choices
5 Final set of techniques to help you make good choices
6 Core beliefs and automatic thoughts

To complete the 7 ROUTINES sessions (see below), executives need to have completed the 7 GOAL-SETTING, 7 POSITIVE FOCUS, AND 7 NOISE sessions. By completing the 7 ROUTINES sessions, executives will learn an 8-step, 5-minute routine that they can use daily to increase their mental strength, motivation, and focus:


1 Rumination
2 Thought Stoppage
3 Mental imagery
4 Individual goal setting 1
5 Individual goal setting 2
6 Thriving Habit
7 Routines




What can you expect from the sessions?


"At first I thought it might be scary to do this training because it's like, 'Do you really need to talk to this stranger to fix yourself? After all, how can I fix myself with a stranger? Indonesians are not use to this kind of training. I had only seen psychologists on television. The first session was not easy, as I was saying to myself, ‘Oh my God I am going to talk to a psychologist!' I didn’t want you to know everything at first because I was scared about what you would find out. For instance, I knew I ruminated all the time, but I was scared you would find this out, as then I would finally have to admit it, and then have to do something about it. So now no more denial. The second session was easier. By the third one, I was more open. I finally felt it was all okay. You only want to know what we want to tell you. So there is no need to tell everything. Therefore, I felt comfortable. I've learnt that I shouldn't deny anything anymore. Negative things, like rumination and procrastination were my middle name and so I need to change. I need the courage to change. I've finally found it in myself. Although there is tomorrow, I need to do it now. What you teach is related to everything. If I over-think, then I won't get enough sleep and then I will not be as productive. I need to be more focused. I now switch my thoughts to something beautiful."
