What is Your Need?

Do you need tools and space to think more effectively?

Course 1: Core Barefoot Tools

This course is a great place to begin. Its 3 tools enhance thinking and performance in many areas – including problem solving, decision making, organising ideas, planning, communication and productivity.

Using small amounts of time, the tools are easy to learn and apply to your work. They also are well suited to working with others.

To start you only need a pen/pencil and paper. Later you may want to use the tools in digital formats.

The Course also comes with a Core Barefoot Tools Webinar which provides an opportunity to engage with the course Tutors and other participants in a lively 90 minute session. Four Webinar options are offered per year.


Course Fee - £95 (including Webinar)
