This three-session series will provide you with an understanding of the skills and attributes needed to become a proactive, high performing individual. By adopting a positive mindset, you have the ability to maximise your potential and achieve your life goals.

Mindspan Global has spent over 20 years researching what it is that enables people to perform at high levels and have greater awareness of your own emotional intelligence. They have found that whatever your surroundings or circumstances, it is what is going on in your head that is most important.

This type of performance development is founded on the Mindspan principles that focuses on the development of self-leadership and high performance, to enable you to experience fulfilment in all aspects of your life.

These sessions aim to equip you with the tools to adjust your personal and professional outlook, enabling you to reflect on your desired experiences and the action you can take to realise your ambitions.

These workshops are open to all students who can commit to attending all three sessions.
