What Is it?

Abicord’s CEO Graham W Price has created a unique and highly successful development training called ‘Positive Mind Training’.

This revolutionary training will change the way your executives and staff view and approach their work and their lives. In twelve hours of training, reduced to one day if preferred, participants learn how to live stress-free lives, become more motivated, deal positively with challenges, focus on solutions rather than problems, relate more effectively to others, break through limiting beliefs, develop their intuition and deal with constraints such as anxiety, procrastination, low mood or irritation.

Our staff found it empowering, uplifting and practical. I cannot recommend it enough Simone Plaut

Manager MS Society (one-day training)


Participants are asked to score their effectiveness and satisfaction in work and life, before and after the training, on a scale of 0 to 10, where 10 represents the most effective and satisfied person they could imagine. Practically all participants have increased by three or more points (where there’s room on the scale), including several moving from 2 to 9 and 3 to 10, with the majority moving from 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9 to 9 or 10. Follow-up after six months shows changes are sustained or further improved.


The training can be delivered over five 3 hour sessions, ten 1.5 hour sessions, two half-days, a single one-day training or one-to-one.

It can also be delivered in an abbreviated format at conferences or after-dinner talks.

Open (external) trainings:

A free introductory 90 minute webinar is regularly available (click here for dates and registration). This webinar is stand-alone, requiring no attendance at further trainings to gain benefits.
