What we do

We help companies and individuals perform better and achieve more by developing more effective employees and leaders.

How we do it

All of our client work is strongly grounded in the research-based principles of positive psychology

A Resilient and optimistic mindset provides the ability to grow and thrive in the face of challenges, and to bounce back swiftly from adversities and setbacks.
Foresight's coaching and learning & development programmes are all about enabling you to perform at your optimal level in all manner of circumstances and situations.

Foresight specialises in public workshops, custom-designed in-house programmes and one-on-one coaching.

We hold the regional licence for the SASQ - the  optimism and resilience assessment tool developed by Martin Seligman, the founder of positive psychology and have an on-going relationship with Foresight Inc. of the United States.

We also use the tools of EQ mapping and profiling, stress mapping and profiling, and DISC behavioural motivation profiling.

How it helps you

For companies, our tools genuinely identify top performers and turn around under-achievers.

For individuals, our resilience and optimism training can turn around lives, helping you master your stress, achieve more and gain more enjoyment from your achievements.
