‘Personal Effectiveness And Achievement’ Training For Organisations

What People Say

The most succinct, useful and effective training I’ve ever come across
Michael Queen

What Is it?

Abicord has created a unique and highly successful development training called ‘The Power to Choose’.

This revolutionary training will change the way your executives and staff view and approach their work and their lives. In six hours of training, 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, breakthrough limiting beliefs 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)

Further Feedback:

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 1 to 8, 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 in two DVDs watched over several weeks to give time to practice the tools. Or it can be presented in a single one-day training or one-to-one.

The web-based training can be provided free to one person, or several in a significant organisation, and at a cost of £79 (US$97) to any number of an organisation’s management and staff.  Contact enquiries@abicord.com
