Why Mindshop

Nine reasons why Mindshop is different to other providers of business advisory support.

1. Over 26 years in business
Having worked with thousands of advisors in eleven countries over the past 25 years we know what works and what doesn’t when striving for high performance. While others regularly go out of business Mindshop is leading by example with consistent growth and profit.
2. Value to Others
Advisors new to Mindshop are surprised at how everyone in the community is so giving with their time and wisdom. That’s because we all share the philosophy at the core of Mindshop – Value to Others (VTO).
3. The Mindshop community
You won’t understand the power of the Mindshop sharing culture until you are in it, but to sum up, it’s the glue that binds all our members together. We don’t welcome those who do not hold the same core values. You benefit from hundreds of learning opportunities from different perspectives.
4. It’s what we don’t do
We’re different because of what we don’t do in our training & support.
– No sponsors at events
– No gimmicks
– No scripted, paint-by-numbers products
– No guru speak or too much hype
5. One stop shop
No need to go to a variety of different providers. Training, tools, coaching, network and innovation to drive high performance all come from the one source for a surprisingly modest monthly investment.
6. We simplify complexity
We don’t over-engineer tools and training for the sake of standing out, preferring to keep it simple and customer focused to ensure powerful and practical solutions that drive to action.
7. Depth of tools & processes
With over 150 tools and 22+ courses we provide training and support to cover almost any challenge any sized client may face when driving strategy, change, growth and profit. We have a mindset to continuously improve but at the same time not over engineering it.
8. Authenticity
We prefer straight talking and providing direct, constructive feedback to ensure the most robust outcome is achieved. We also embrace diversity of thought and people, ensuring all who fit our core values are welcome.
9. Technology & innovation
The ability to access coaching, training and amazing depth of advisory resources 24/7 online from anywhere in the world is a critical success factor to keeping our advisors agile and relevant.

The Business Advisory Learning Journey

Another reason why Mindshop is different is we have developed the five phases of advisory success to guide advisors on the steps to take when building capability and confidence as advisors. We recognize and support advisors to move through these five phases at a pace suitable to them aware that the final destination for many may be to become mastery of the problem solving phases while others its to be experts in implementation. We don’t take a cookie cutter approach.
