Passionate about better ways of working

Founded in 2019, our team brings together experience in coaching, psychology, tech and business. We’ve all walked a mile or two in our clients’ shoes and have seen the energy that is unlocked when companies create inspiring cultures. We draw on science and practice to pioneer ways of augmenting the impact of coaching, through human connection and technology.

Our core values
Human

We’re about personalised learning experiences, delivered with a human touch. We build real relationships and lasting partnerships. This is never a transaction to us.

Passionate

We don’t just understand the hustle, we live it too. Whether it’s the science behind great working culture or innovating with new tech, this is our passion.

Impactful

We believe that the effects of good coaching are felt throughout the workplace. Great coaching doesn’t go through the motions – it transforms lives and delivers tangible results. At Mindbeat, we’re only interested in sustainable change. The stuff that lasts.

Pioneering

When we say that everyone deserves a great coach, we mean it. That’s why we’re pioneering a new model and innovative ways of accessing support. Wherever you are whatever you do.

Agile

Well, we practice what we preach. As the world changes and evolves, so do we.

Our experience with Mindbeat and its coaches has been fantastic. Knowing that our Managers’ roles and needs are diverse and that a one-size-fits-all approach would not work, Mindbeat customised our programme on the platform to enable a tailored and personalised approach. We are so excited to continue working with them in the future.

Alf Mizzi & Sons Marketing

My coaching sessions were highly interactive and I found them to be very valuable, discussing real life challenges and finding ways to overcome them. I found the reading material and activities shared by Mindbeat very supportive to my goals – they were spot on.

“One of the (if not the) strongest partnership approaches I’ve had the pleasure of being involved in. Thank you Mindbeat for your support.”

The sessions were held online through the Mindbeat platform and everything worked perfectly throughout all of my sessions. The overall experience has simply been a fantastic one!
