Make change happen, have better conversations, be more creative, tell great stories and much else

Check out my current catalogue of courses to see how you can start changing your world at once

How To Silence Your Inner Critic

A nine-day course to transform the way you think, so that you can to tackle the projects and dreams you never dare to start.

You’ll learn to recognise the things you actually want, which is much harder than most people realise, and become a connoisseur of your own thinking.

The course includes an exercise to create a particular mental habit that I have never seen anywhere else.

If you are interested in working with me one-to-one, I strongly suggest you take this course first.


What's Bugging You?

A seven-step guide to work out the solution to any problem.

(Any problem? Yup, that’s correct. Don’t forget this is from the man who wrote How To Change The World.)

Includes a beautiful printed map, to help you work everything out, published by Mapology Guides.


How To Have Better Conversations

Some people find it almost impossible to speak up. Others never stop talking, but can’t seem to listen. Neither is much fun – for anybody.

We all fall into particular conversational habits, over the years. Trying to change them can feel so weird that we don’t even try.

But if you don’t take the risk, nothing changes. So challenge yourself: a great conversation is one in which you say something you never said before.


Storytelling Mastery

WARNING: reading this could seriously improve your storytelling, with potentially powerful effects on your audience

In this course, I share what I picked up as a writer on the best newspapers and magazines in the English language…

…and the author of five books, including TWO memoirs.

The only other way to learn this from me is to enrol on one of the occasional week-long residential courses I run.


The Family Project

Every family has a story to tell. What’s yours? In this six week course, you’ll learn what to put in, what to leave out, and how to tell it for maximum impact.

The course is shaped to give you a creative adventure with the people who matter most… your family.

I created and run the course with my wife Harriet, who for ten years has edited the Guardian newspaper’s astonishingly successful Family section.


Washing Up For The Soul

A five day course showing you how to be mindful when you wash up alone, and great company when you’re with others.

You’ll learn meditation skills, and reclaim what often seems like “wasted time”.

The skill of seeing value in what we previously took for granted is central to my courses, and this one provides an easy way in.

How To Be Confident

A new recording I have never shared publicly, showing you a totally new way to understand what confidence means.

Includes exercises to help you see WHY you don’t feel confident sometimes, without beating yourself up…

…and proven ways to manage that, so that when you’re ready you can find hidden strength.


How to say No (or Yes, if that's harder)

A five-day course to transform your understanding of how to make offers that people want…

… and become better at accepting or declining offers from other people.


40 Days of Coaching Gold

A six-week course to move you into action – so that you can start changing the world at once.

We’ll look at the problem you want to solve, what gets in your way, and how to move forward.

Includes access to weekly Q&As, and a one-to-one session (Gold members).


Improvise Your Way To The Top

Do you suffer from the following symptoms?

Boredom, and a tendency to play safe.

Stiffness in conversations, due to planning every word before you speak.

An awkward feeling that everybody looks down on you (or up).


Sales and marketing for nice people...

…who hate that kind of thing.

On this course, you will see very quickly that sales are guaranteed to be difficult, if:

1. You haven’t worked out what you are selling (whether for money or not).

2. You haven’t warmed up your audience before pitching to them.

Working out what your product is can be very sensible if you don’t want to starve.

Warming up your audience is called Marketing. It’s your friend. I’ll show you how.


How To Change The World

This is the big one. Bit of everything from above.

Make change happen. Be more creative. Communicate better. Share your idea, product or service.

And get paid properly.

Based on the book, published in 16 languages worldwide.

Oh yes!
