Key features

Executive wellbeing

Wellbeing is a key element of the Explorer Mindset. Organisations responding to an increasingly complex, competitive and unpredictable environment, are demanding their people do more with less – and leaders are no exception.

Inter-modular project work

Programme participants will source and undertake an inter-modular project that will provide them with a rich experiential context to support the learning context.

Through the project and coaching check-ins, participants will apply many aspects of their learning including within strategic focus; innovation leadership; prioritising making choices and planning; Creating and managing a high performance team; and disciplined execution skills

Mindset diagnostics

The programme content is framed around seven ‘mindset dimensions’, formed of core psychological characteristics and leadership approaches.

Prior to the programme, all participants will undertake a personalised diagnostic which is designed to help participants through psychometric feedback to understand their own mindset and the ways in which it enables or detracts from the attributes of an explorer mindset

Leadership through coaching

Coaching helps leaders and organisations reconnect with what is most important for them. On this programme participants do not only receive individual coaching, they are taught coaching skills to be able to support one another through small coaching groups.

The 7 Explorer Mindsets

The Explorer Mindset is based around seven mindsets, they will be inter-woven throughout the programme, they are:

Personal Resilience is a key aspect of the Explorer Mindset. This includes the speed at which a person bounces back from disappointments, their tendency to see things as within their control or influence, and their fundamental belief in their ability to overcome obstacles and thrive during adversity. We tend to have certain beliefs about ourselves and the world that influence our base level of Personal Resilience. However, Personal Resilience also needs to be nurtured in order to be sustained during challenging periods.

I joined senior leaders from other global organisations on the Explorer Mindset programme. The fast-paced, highly interactive and intense programme at The Møller Institute was a unique experience and a blend of information, learning, exchange, practice and joy, facilitated and led by top notch global experts.

I can highly recommend Explorer Mindset to other business leaders, curious and ready to explore how to successfully and confidently navigate in a VUCA world, whether setting up a new venture or leading a blue-chip giant.
