What others think about the programme
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. And I’ve realised several important breakthroughs this way that wouldn’t have happened from the book alone.
Overall, it is a very effective programme, well structured and organised and a very creditable and personable Mentor in Adam. It brings the model to life in a very practical and useful way. I am getting a lot out of it. I don’t want it to end!! The Chimp Management company is living up to its reputation through the delivery of this programme – highly professional and genuine people.
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”.
“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.

This programme has been brilliant for me. To understand and know how to change and manage my mind, using its power for me instead of against me, confident I am okay instead of feeling like I’m losing it again.
It's a great course. If there is a follow up to this - I am in on it. I am a CBT therapist - and it brings so much life and animation to psychological concepts that otherwise are dry and academic-sounding, but I have shared many Chimp Ideas with many People and many people love them.
