mindMoves - Coaching & Training

Personal growth and development coaching - strategies to get the outcome you want 

At mindMoves we’re all about…

Activating your inner strength so you can lead & inspire harmonious relationships and transform your relationships to make life stress-free!”

Passionate about personal growth and development we deliver in-person coaching and group training in Whangarei and via Zoom/Teams to anywhere else in New Zealand. We’re all about communicating clearly and leading ourselves authentically and congruently because we know, when we do these well, others follow. How can we lead if we can’t lead ourselves?  We’re all about fun, engaging coaching and workshops giving you the ‘how to’ so you can lead yourself to the outcomes you desire.

We love partnering with individuals, businesses and organisations to support and grow leadership. And you know, leadership is all about communicating.  We often hear leaders talk about their desire to get others to do what they want, and often, they’re not leading or modelling the behaviours they expect from others.  How can we expect someone to do a task or act in a specific way when as their leader, we’re not showing them what it looks like?

From our own experiences we know when we change the way we do us, our external experiences change. Yes … we hear you already … “I’m doing okay thanks – it’s THEM that need to change!” We’ve heard it many times and we know, when we lead the changing, we start seeing and hearing the results we want.

If you’d like to refresh, renew, up-skill, up-level or update, or simply find your inner leader, contact Barbara for more information.

They cover a range of personal and professional development topics including NLP, self-care, thinking habits as well as a selection of book reviews and more …

Invest for the long-term

A CFO asks a CEO: “What if we invest in developing our people and then they leave us?”
The CEO responds: “What happens if we don’t invest and they stay?”
