Mindset
Matters

First-class psychology
to help you and your team fly.

Find out why

Your business depends on your people.

They do the deals. They create your culture. And they find and keep your clients.

  • Happy workers are 13% more productive.

  • 1 in 3 of your fit notes will be for mental health reasons.

  • 83% of employees are more attracted to organisations with a progressive culture.

But behind every stat there's a story...

John, 39, junior Partner, smart yet flat

John loves the challenge of corporate work but he’s lost his mojo.

He's tired, lacking energy and a client has commented that he seems distracted. His senior partner raises this in his annual appraisal and he agrees to improve, but nothing changes...

Jasmin, 38, Director, driven & bullish

Jasmin is bright, ambitious and focussed. Clients like her clout, but she's exhausted and her team are intimidated.

The CEO is frustrated and tells her to let go a bit and let her team shine. Jasmin thinks "if you want a job doing well, do it yourself", and she has her eye firmly on promotion. The team are stuck. And there’s no help for Jasmin to change.

What's this costing you?

£2,646 per employee per year (Deloitte, 2022).

In reduced productivity and absence.

Add into the mix toxic teams and prickly behaviour with clients... and how long is a piece of string.

So how do you create a thriving team?

Do you see psychology as the fabric of your business?

What training do you run? Do you have a shared language? How many use your EAP for personal development? Usually not many, even in crisis.

There is a solution... fit for the 21st century...

Make mindset matter... Then change it.

The experts

Philippa Richardson, Founder of The Circle Line and Transactional Analyst psychotherapist:

"Whether you want to be a better leader, partner or visionary, master the art of the transaction and the world is your oyster.

I saw this from my days as a litigator and a marketer, as well as my psychology training. Whether you're advising a client, delegating to a colleague or negotiating with a supplier, the quality of the transaction will influence the outcome.

Work and life, when you boil it down, is one giant string of transactions.

We specialise in organisational Transactional Analysis ("TA"). TA reveals the patterns that create your culture and limit you and your business: What’s your Script? What Games do you play? What are your Drivers?

  • It's one of the cornerstones of modern psychology. Internationally recognised and empirically-developed over 70 years.

  • There are only 900 Transactional Analysts in the UK (the TA qualification takes 3 years).

  • Research shows it works. (see here)."

In our partners' words

"Without the human touch that The Circle Line brings, any mental health support service becomes just an arms-length benefit that most employees don’t use. The Circle Line know how to connect and talk to our people. They normalise the subject and ensure we see real uptake and benefit from our investment.”
