More than 100 representatives from businesses across the North West attended a programme to explore how they can instil the power of positive thinking into the workplace.
Delivered for the first time to SMEs by Michael Finnigan, from performance psychology firm i2i, the aim of the programme, Project Me, was to help people identify areas of growth within their respective businesses and implement the psychological strategies and theoretical models to ensure targets are achieved.
The firm, which is based in Preston, has advised the likes of 02, British Airways, Royal Mail, Rolls-Royce, and Darren Clarke. It has worked with Wigan Athletic ahead of the historic FA Cup victory over Manchester City in May 2013.
Michael said: “We use a large number of theoretical models and concepts which have worked successfully in large corporate organisations and elite sports, so we are delighted that so many representatives from smaller organisations attended Project Me to find out how they can make improvements.”
He added: “By attending Project Me, people have accessed the same help and support which has been delivered to some of the world’s largest organisations.
“It will help them to do better business by boosting their self-esteem, which will in turn deliver exceptional corporate performance by improving productivity, team working, customer service, sales and profits.”
