The “Solution Focused Thinking Skills” Programme is our flagship 4-day public programme open to managers and leaders from any organisation.

Over the course of the initial four days, you will experience, embed and apply the researched Go M.A.D. Results Framework to enable you to make significant measurable differences to:

  1. Yourself – by increasing personal effectiveness in making business and personal differences.
  2. Others – by applying proven coaching tools and techniques to guide anyone through a structured approach to solving problems and defining solutions.
  3. Your organisation – by examining key business processes and highlighting the significant improvements that can be made by using tried and tested techniques.

The programme is designed and co-facilitated by Andy Gilbert, Founding Director and developer of the Go M.A.D.® Thinking System.


What other business leaders think of the programme:


“Fantastic! I have been in the call centre industry for 15 years and thought that I had seen pretty much every way of coaching and managing people. I have been shown a whole new way of doing things that will have a great benefit to what we do here. I came away with the tools to move my managers and teams onwards to greater levels. I have also found a way of getting the managers to find the answers from within themselves instead of just asking questions that they know the answers to.”

Paul Bradshaw, Virgin Media

“I really benefited from attending the Solutions Focused Thinking programme, both on a business and personal level. The methodology is practical and easy to use and I find my wider team getting value from the process when I apply the methodology in our team meetings. I've recommended many colleagues to attend this dynamic programme.”

Michelle Billington, Head of Culture, Veolia

“Go M.A.D. has enabled me to think in a solution focused way to enable change management. There are a variety of Go MAD applications and a great range of relevant, interesting products and services that enable people to make a difference in both their work and personal life.”

 Jo Attenborough, HR Director
