PERSONAL BEST in a nutshell

The Personal Best programme is an employee development package, put together to help each participant achieve a high impact breakthrough in their work or personal life. There are three main elements to the programme:

Senior Sponsorship

A full day's training for senior sponsors and internal coaches to prepare them for their critical role as active Personal Best champions


Up to three virtual meetings will be booked with the internal coach, who's role is to help participants agree and achieve their goal


There are four half-day (three hour) workshops during the programme; deliverable online or face-to-face

Personal Best is a unique employee development programme, put together to help each participant achieve a goal which matters to them. This could be a work-related goal, or to do with something outside work – the only requirement is that participants must identify at least one of these goals – which we will call Personal Breakthrough Goals. 

There are two main elements of Personal Best designed to support participants to achieve their breakthrough goal. 


The coach’s role is to help participants agree and achieve their goal. He or she will get in touch with each participant at the start of the programme to set up a planning meeting. Two further virtual meetings can also be booked with them during the programme. And at the end of the programme the coach will meet with the participant one final time to review their progress.


There are four half-day workshops during the programme. These can be conducted face to face or virtually depending on your preference.

Participants are expected to attend all of them and will stay with the same group of colleagues throughout.

The approach...

When a brain surgeon operates, the first thing he or she has to do is to “map” the brain of the patient. This involves applying tiny electric currents to different parts of the brain to understand which feelings and actions each part stimulates. 

It might be thought odd (and perhaps inefficient) that this brain mapping exercise has to take place for each patient – after all, an experienced surgeon ought to know which parts of the brain connect to things like sight, leg movement or hearing music. 

But that is the point – every brain is different. To understand how anyone thinks, walks and talks, it is necessary to understand their unique brain map. 

Personal Best has been designed on this principle – that everyone is different, and what works for one of us, may be totally ineffective for someone else. 

The Benefits

To the organisation:

Helps raise levels of engagement, wellbeing and productivity.

To the individual

Achieving a personal breakthrough at work or outside work which will increase personal fulfilment.

The Audience

The programme is voluntary and open to any employee not in a management role. The programme can be delivered to cohorts of up to 20 people at a time.

The Outcomes

It will be important to agree on specific expected outcomes from the programme, both for the organisation and the learners:

these may relate to indicators of:

  • Satisfaction with the programme
  • Engagement with the organisation
  • Productivity improvement in specific teams/service areas.

 although outcomes will be personal and will vary widely it will be useful – particularly for those involved in delivery – to anticipate the kinds of personal breakthrough the programme can support.

Elements of the programme that will run all the way through

Personal Breakthrough goal

You're encouraged to identify a breakthrough goal at the beginning of the programme. 90% of people achieve their goal by the end of the programme.

The Portal

Your go-to hub for learning materials, links and connection to everyone involved in the programme. This will include the facilitators, coaches and delegates all in one place.


You will be paired with a coach throughout the programme to support, enrich, and challenge your learning.

Breakthrough Goal

Personal Best Foundation is designed to help individuals make a personal breakthrough in any aspect of work or life.

A breakthrough goal will relate to something that:

  • matters to the individual
  • will make a difference to their life …
  • …and is probably something important to others who know them well
Personal Best Portal

Personal Best Portal

Last but not least of the elements in the Personal Best formula is an online portal which will become the go-to place for materials, updates and communication throughout the programme.
