A Masterclass:

 How to Hire on CHARACTER

 Delivered by Simon Hartley

Simon is all about about helping individuals and organisations to maximise their performance, realise their potential and work towards becoming world class in their chosen field.

For almost 20 years he has been working in elite and professional sport as a sport psychology consultant and performance coach. He has coached Olympians, world class athletes and International teams to success.

His expertise lies in helping organisations, teams and individuals to consistently engineer peak performance and become World Class. In sport, he helps athletes win medals and teams win championships. He applies exactly the same approaches to organisations.

He specialises in developing a World Class mind-set and approach. For almost 10 years, he has also had incredible results applying his work to Entrepreneurs, Executives, SMEs and Corporate clients. He has coached a wide range of clients to develop a winning mentality. He helps them to understand the ingredients that enable peak performance and ensure they can engineer sustainable success.

He identified one of the key common themes among high performing teams was how (& what type of person) they recruit. His deep dive into this resulted in the principles of Hiring on CHARACTER.

This Masterclass gives you a privileged insight into these principles...

At the conclusion of the morning you will understand:

  • How to actually recruit and select on character and attitude.
  • Why ‘character’ is important and how it underpins success.
  • What ‘character’ is (and isn’t).
  • What we get if we recruit through CVs, interviews and psychometrics.
  • How world class organisations recruit.
  • How Olympic programmes and elite sports teams identify those with the potential to reach the podium.
  • How to become a magnet, to attract and retain talent.
  • How to adopt these principles and apply them to your own organisation.

Some comments from delegates at previous sessions:

“Simon brings an incredibly insightful and contemporary view to organisational and personal performance. He seamlessly translates his extensive experience in Sports Psychology into performance improvement/development strategies for businesses and individuals. He has a great coaching style that yields results and delivers a complex yet powerful concept in a down to earth and practical way.”

“An incredibly valuable session. Simple, insightful and powerful messages, delivered with energy, passion and authenticity. Brilliant!”

 Refreshments (breakfast sandwiches, tea, coffee etc) will be available until the Masterclass starts (promptly!) at 8.30 and a sandwich lunch will be provided at 2pm.

’So what’ – included in the price is a short, sharp refresh a week later to follow up/make the most of your investment:
