The performance of any business depends on the performance of the minds of its staff. Mindapples provides cutting-edge learning and development programmes, using insights from cognitive science to help staff and managers maintain wellbeing, reduce stress and improve performance.

If you know your own mind, you can get more done and feel better. This introductory module gives managers a basic grounding in how our minds work, what they need to thrive, and how to build your daily routine to get the best from yourself and others.
Lead diverse teams
Selecting the right people, and developing the people you have, is a daily challenge for managers. This module introduces the science of what makes each of us unique and explores how we can build diverse, balanced teams and help people work to their potential.
Motivating staff is the most important ingredient of transformational management. Demotivated staff will be less creative, less productive, and less happy. This module explores the science behind motivation, and reveals the three key ingredients that make people eager to work.
Manage pressure & stress
Stress and setbacks are an inevitable part of modern life, but they need to be managed. Learn to spot the signs of stress, find out how good management practice can reduce stress in teams, and practise simple techniques for supporting people who are stressed or unwell.
Our minds work better together. If we communicate well and structure our collaboration effectively, we can be more than the sum of our parts. Learn how to communicate clearly, resolve conflicts smoothly, and chair meetings effectively to get the best from your staff.
Lead creative teams
Businesses that fail to innovate are increasingly being left behind in a changing market. Good managers can promote creativity in their teams and find fresh solutions to old problems. Learn the key ingredients of creativity and start bringing them into your workplace.
