The Covid-19 situation creates a significantly changing environment. What seemed reasonably predictable before, has now turned into massive uncertainty for many. This creates a lot of fear and anxiety and is consciously or subconsciously triggering us on a number of levels. Perhaps you have experienced a redundancy situation, and that has knocked you around also. Double whammy.
It will take something, to get a job in the current environment. You need to stand out from the crowd and shine through. You need to totally own yourself. That takes confidence and an empowered mindset. You need to Be Bold!
Be Bold is a break-through mindset philosophy and method. It is about increasing self-awareness and taking responsibility for your mental operating state. The access points are identifying core beliefs and values and the realisation that everyone has a choice between the main operating states once they become aware of them.
The programme includes effective and practical tools to help improve your mindset and create sustainable changes. Be Bold will also greatly assist you to be more creative, productive, and persistent.
Be Bold is delivered online in a mix of 1:1 and group programmes. Working in a small group with others also ready to up-level, is very powerful, and significantly adds to the dynamic and learning experience.

What past clients say
A lasting impression.
I have known Helen through my time at the Chamber Migrant programme. She is a very inspiring and creative personality who gets along with anyone and everyone. Her ability to connect with different cultures is amazing. I have learnt a lot through her during my transition into the country as a new Kiwi. She has a remarkable effect on people she meets with and ends up leaving a lasting impression. I wish her all the best in her endeavours and hope that she continues her good work.
Thanks again Helen.
Helen had been a huge help in assisting me with proper ways of dealing with unemployment. She is kind, vibrant, and always accommodating. She is an asset of great value to immigrants she assisted. Thanks again Helen. You’re a true inspiration.
Helen is an excellent teacher and programme facilitator. She was very open and generous with her knowledge about the subject matter, with many interesting examples and stories to illustrate some of the key content of the course. In addition, Helen was very helpful, offering to help the students even after the completion of the course. Highly recommended!
