Through the use of coaching and mentoring skills, psychology, training in emotional and social intelligence and personal motivation and change management skills North Star assists individuals to reach their full potential in business, relationships and life generally.

Our vision is to see people live their best life now and this is partially achieved through a range of life design coaching, mentoring, training and education programmes (supported by digital and print media including a range of North Star Publications/Training Materials etc.) and all of this with a twist of Transactional Analysis, Neuro-Lingusitic Programming and Discourse Narrative Analysis.

North Star also delivers in-house training programmes in ‘creativity and innovation for profit’, customer service, customer recruitment and advises on client retention strategies, brand positioning, marketing strategy, vision casting and work team motivation. Business-one to one coaching services also available.

    NorthStar also operates Centres for Creativity Innovation and Enterprise and the Institute for Creativity Innovation and Enterprise UK.

    The associated CCIE ‘pop up’ centres can be located on University campuses where a range of taught modules – suitable for university credit – are delivered in an interactive, creative style with the aim of stimulating a creative approach to knowledge transfer. The programme helps universities achieve their employability objectives and explores how research from a diverse range of areas including: social sciences, management, health studies, life sciences, and engineering can be used to develop  commercial products, services or viable enterprises.

  4. Social Contribution

    As part of our social contribution NorthStar provides group training courses and individual support sessions to ‘socially excluded’ individuals and marginalised groups – ( long term unemployed etc.) with the objective of helping them out of current, often life limiting, situations and into a new, more productive life experience. These courses – often sponsored- are offered free to attendees.The courses are successful in helping attendees establish their own businesses, gain employment or enter higher education.

    The programmes generally run for twelve weeks ( two six week blocks A and B) and include elements of life coaching, mentoring skills development and elements of positive psychology – including self -confidence, self-esteem and willpower development.

    Please contact us for further information on our ‘Six weeks To Change Your Life’ (Block A) ‘and ‘Six Weeks to Build for Your Future’  (Block B).
