    What others think about our programme

    Before undergoing this training, a considerable amount of my own precious time would be wasted reflecting on situations that I could not change. This would largely involve questioning my own judgements (in a disparaging way), along with my own performance and outcomes. Since discovering the Chimp model, I now know that it was my chimp hard at work. 

    I had already listened to the A Path Through the Jungle, audiobook and looked at several sections of the printed book, but there is something about doing the course too that really cements Chimp Management into a way of thinking. I’ve realised several important breakthroughs this way that wouldn’t have happened from the book alone.

    I have learnt that I need to be more proactive about what happens in my life rather than reactive. I am trying to ensure that I have daily personal development time, recording this in written form, enabling me to plan ahead and then reflect later. I feel, most of the time, (still some work to do on some of my gremlins) I am more in control of my chimp and find myself saying “stop”.
