Ian was introduced to me when I needed time and space to develop the business further.

Ian has a wealth of knowledge, his manner is professional, relaxed and focused. At the start of the journey, one of the tools I undertook was the MindSonar measurement. All I can say is “Wow.” The results of the psychological tool were extremely accurate as to how I approached my activities, detailing my strengths and what aspects I could assess differently within myself and support company growth. I cannot say it was easy as Ian certainly held me to account!!

Through working with Ian over six months I am pleased to say that whilst I am busy, I now have more quality time with my family and a balanced focused approach to my company. Our continued partnership working is based on trust, Ian always delivers with sound knowledge and active support to achieve current and future goals. content goes here.

c62-logo-e1546633885708 HomeI have taken part in various psychometric testing in the previous role. The issue I have was always the way the data and information was presented; it always seems harder to understand/ digest. Inherently, they seemed focused on the benefit to the employer only.

Taking part in the Mindsonar process was pleasantly surprising. The process from the start was engaging, and the initial data feedback was visual and easier to understand. The one-to-one feedback session was the most beneficial element as the discussion allowed explanation and points on development.

From my perspective, Mindsonar is about personal understanding and improvement. For any employer looking for a greater understanding of a team, Mindsonar is a must. For an employee, Mindsonar is a great way to better understand yourself, how you work and ways to be better at what you do.

Thanks, Mark

0 HomeIn July  I attended a Mindset of Tendering training session. 

Analysing my approach to tenders, utilising a Mindsonar assessment tool.

This highlighted to me not only where my shortfalls were in my confidence, but also where improvements could be made in my approach.

I have since, gone away and analysed the findings for myself, which has further benefited me significantly and allowed me to strengthen my skill set with immediate impact. I have certainly seen positive results, not only in the work that I have completed but also in my approach to the process and the people around me.  

I found Ian who ran the session to be very interactive and knowledgeable. 

We broke up my Mindsonar test results in detail and then they were explained to me thoroughly. Following this, I was provided with coaching for my shortfalls and given a detailed explanation of why this would benefit me as an individual.

I would highly recommend this course to any tendering professional who would like to understand and invest in themselves to encourage successful working and to ultimately win contracts.  

Thank you, Ian, for your comprehensive support and guidance.

Label Apeel is the UK’s leading quality label printer. To achieve these standards we have to employ the very best people. Having engaged with different types of personality modelling before we were looking for something that would allow us to match the skills of the role to the thinking styles of applicants.

Working with Ian and the MindSonar product has been a pleasure- but don’t expect an easy ride. This tool is all about you doing the hard miles up front rather than after you have employed the wrong person. Ian probed us and pushed us to truly define the role and the skills required for the post. We did a lot of examining and thinking before we understood the requirements of the role. To my mind, this was such a worthwhile exercise to create a template of the style we wanted, so when we went into the selection process, we were focused and thoughtful which is probably a 100 miles from where we have been in the past. 

The tool is clear, understandable and extremely useful. It allowed us to make very fine decisions between different candidates or in one case identify that actually none of the candidates were suitable. The real power behind the tool though is Ian himself, a tough taskmaster who brooks no waffle or prevarication. Ian has guided us through the implementation and the using of MindSonar, and I believe saved us 10’s if not 100’s of thousands of pounds in wasted time and energy, employing unsuitable people for the wrong roles.

“I recently met Ian for a coaching session at the end of my time working with my previous employer. It was an extremely informative experience; Ian was thoroughly prepared in advance for the session and put me at ease immediately. He explained interesting concepts in a clear and engaging manner, finding positives even in “blind spots” in my workplace approach and suggesting ways of improving my interview technique. In advance of the meeting the MindSonar tool was easy to use, consistent and intuitive. I would thoroughly recommend working with Ian to anyone at any stage of the career”

bethimage003-225x300 HomeWorkforce Solutions Group and Ian Clarke have helped me to think through which route to take at a major working life crossroads. Oh, yawn, I thought, a psychometric test, but MindSonar probes very differently. I found it quite tricky to focus at the beginning, but the instructions prompted me continually to think about values within my chosen context. Ian was able to interpret and feedback the considerable output generated by MindSonar to help me think through options in general and my crossroads in particular. As we talked, he steered me to generate a wider set of ideas but which fitted together within my needs, encouraged me to look at my blind spots, challenged me to feel better about myself and prompted me to make a plan which would deliver things within a few days, a few months and a few years. Ian was able to share his own experience and knowledge to help firm up my way forward. I came away inspired and with confidence boosted. As we parted, a handshake seemed totally inappropriate, so Ian got an impromptu hug. Highly recommended! beth@beth04.plus.com
