Being Proactive

“The way to bring about change is to be proactive and active” – Octavia Spencer

What does it mean to be proactive?

When something is bugging us we’ll naturally put our energy on all of the things we can’t control. Being proactive and placing energy onto our attitudes and actions will influence the outcome though. And because 98% of us are natural procrastinators the only way forward is to take action – even the tiniest step forward has an impact.

Being Proactive helps you…

Focus your energy

You’ll be firmly within your locus of control – where you have the most influence.

Procrastinate less

Proactive people know how to tackle the most important tasks first.


Because you are able to create space between stimulus (a situation, setback or person) and your response to it.

Plan ahead

When you’re proactive you anticipate, plan and move towards your goals.

Ray GoodmanHigher Education Principle

These workshops are different because they aren't target driven or issues based - it is a holistic approach to soft skills training that can help individuals of all backgrounds and abilities. And it has helped affirm to me how to cope with the ‘curve balls’ in life.

Will LawrenceCMS Law Firm, London

The workshop was incredibly useful in highlighting my own behaviours and the follow up coaching has really helped me become aware of a number of aspects of my personality and work habits. It’s been an insightful and interesting journey from start to finish and the lessons will stay with me for life.
