A shift in perspective

As an Olympian, I used to think mindset was about positive thinking, success visualisation and goal setting. The mantra seemed to be: eliminate pressure; become harder, tougher, stronger.

Yet, the science shows I was way off.

At best, those strategies are only a third of what’s needed for wellbeing, leadership and performance. 

It was like sitting on a stool with only one leg and wondering why it felt wobbly.

Drawing from four decades of research, the science of psychological flexibility provides a powerful framework. To manage our wellbeing, lead and ultimately perform in situations of stress and pressure, we need to develop personalised tools to unlock the three foundational pillars: Open Up, Be Present and Do What Matters.

Reinventing Mindset: Mastering The Science Of Psychological Flexibility To Transform Wellbeing, Leadership And Performance

A talk on the power of psychological flexibility by keynote speaker Toby Jenkins.

In 2022, I was asked to run a workshop at Google in Sydney, Australia. My talk was about the surprising power of the science of Psychological Flexibility. This presentation is filled with practical suggestions on how to build psychological flexibility to transform wellbeing, leadership and performance in situations of stress and pressure.

It is one of my most popular keynote speech and workshop topics.

"I've had the fortune of being exposed to various leadership coaches. I found Toby's messaging to be incredibly powerful and differentiated in recognising the nature of the human struggle, how to accept it, and work with not against it. His teachings have stuck with me and I've found myself repeatedly returning to his guidance as I move forward as a leader of a team, and of a family."

The session was hugely beneficial for our executive team as we navigate uncertain times and a series of new challenges/obstacles related to the current high inflation/interest rate environment.

Your ability to capture the imagination of the team in a short period of time was exceptional and it certainly left everyone asking, ‘when is the next session’.

Of particular benefit was your raw approach to the concept of negative thoughts, which we all experience and the fact these thoughts are natural and we all have them countless times per day.

We found your content relatable, easy to follow and engaging.

I hope we can have many more of these workshops in the coming years.
