Develop a Better Business Mindset to Achieve Greater Business Success 


Achieve greater success by becoming MORE business-minded - develop  the business mindset of successful business people!



Many of these people may lack business mindedness, a combination of ‘business thinking’ and a ‘business mindset’. These are foundational for anybody seeking business success. The weakness of those foundational elements could account for a significant portion of the 70% failure rate of businesses in America. Those can be developed with your curiosity, engagement and practice at our workshop. You could walk out of this workshop with a better business mindset and achieve greater success in business and in life.


Business thinking is a way of constantly evaluating situations from two perspectives – how you can add value in the situation and get compensated for adding the value. A business mindset is a certain way of viewing situations that are based on one's beliefs, experiences, rules and other factors. Developing the mindset of successful business people is a continual process that starts with understanding the beliefs and rules that must be replaced with more business-minded ones. 


The advice and counsel of most academics and experts keeps harking on the symptoms of business failure while failing to tackle some of the root causes that include business thinking and business mindsets. You can read about the issues with a symptom-focused approach in our article 'Business Advice is Like Much of Modern Medicine' in our blog -


We have developed a three-day workshop -  a combination of talks, exercises and group discussions - that will provide the foundation to make you a better business thinker and develop a better business mindset.

"Business people are professionals just like engineers and medical doctors. Just as engineers need an engineering mindset to be successful in their profession, business people require a business mindset to be successful in business. "




​"A lack of business thinking and a business mindset is a root cause of poor business success (or failure)."
