The modern world has become increasingly complex and busy. Many of us do not spend enough time on our own wellbeing, as we are too busy with our busyness. This then affects our ability to be a good boss, colleague, husband, wife, father, mother, son, friend or whatever else we should be. If we are in business, our busyness becomes bad for business. The body of evidence that supports the view that having better wellbeing gets better results is simply unquestionable. Yet still we allow our physical and mental wellbeing to take a back seat in life’s journey.
Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live - Jim Rohn
It doesn't matter where you work, what you do, if you feel lost in one or more ways above, you probably need this Masterful Programme.
The programme has however proved to be very popular with business owners and entrepreneurs, who have represented over 80% of the delegates.
Successful people are accountable for their own development, they are always looking to develop themselves, learn and have a growth mindset. If you want a transformational change in your outlook, this programme is for you.
This investment in yourself will enable you to better identify the needs of your team, business, and customers and give you the drive, energy, grit and determination to stay one-step ahead of your competitors. Research (See page 8 of link) also shows that those organisations who invest in wellbeing are nearly 3 times more prosperous than those that do not.
This 4-month Programme consists of eight Masterful Classes (over 4 full days - once per month) supported by four monthly 1:1 coaching sessions to help you firstly understand what steps you need to take and secondly get the support you need to implement them.
This Masterful Programme will be strictly limited to 12 delegates only to ensure the optimum outcomes, and there has been considerable pre-launch interest generated by the buzz from the delegates of the current group.
In each session, we will explore why that particular aspect is important to your wellbeing, vitality, happiness and resilience and offer implementable strategies to improve them. Each Masterful Class subject has been carefully chosen based on well-researched and evidenced data to enhance your wellbeing. At each session, all delegates will receive their own workbook to help implement the changes they decide and a Masterful Action Plan (MAP) that will stay with them throughout the journey and beyond to help ensure their changes stick!
In between the sessions, each delegate will receive a total of four 50-minute 1:1 coaching sessions to check understanding and progress. These sessions are vital to ensure the calls to action in the Masterful Classes are implemented.
Delegates have access to our Online Forum where they can share experiences with other delegates of both this group and the past and future groups.

What Others Said
"Ian has been a mentor and inspiration to me in my own journey of founding and developing my own charity for homeless young people. As part of that journey, it was my absolute pleasure to attend his masterful breakfast sessions to assist with my own development. These sessions were delivered in expert style, but in a way which made you at ease to open up, discuss experiences, stories and goals. I can’t quite do the series justice, but would go as far as to say that it should be an absolute must for any organisation of any size which wishes to develop themselves and their teams. I have got so much from these sessions personally and I would also like to say a huge thank you on behalf of one of our peer mentor young people who attended for being able to share his story with the group, Get it booked, it’s going to be massive!"
Ben Stone, Founder, Anchorage Trust
“Ian’s sessions help me to clarify and isolate areas in my working life which are creating hold-ups and sometimes a complete stop. I feel much more able to take a wider view of my firm and to see where cogs are stuck in the wrong place. Really very valuable to my work life balance and the smoother running of my firm.”
Mike Saunders, Managing Director, Boswell Financial Services
“We live in a time of rapid change and what worked ten years ago is slow and ineffective today. In fact, what worked last year is out of date at times. Having worked in training many years ago, I have always been acutely aware of the changes going on in management and personal development training and looked many times at enhancing my understanding and learning more from others. Ian and his team have a very special adaptation of how we should look at this and uses highly developed systems and methodology to bring it into the 21st century. The level of human engagement and “mindfulness understanding” is of the highest order. The delivery of adapting social and welfare understanding into everyday working life is creative and easy to understand, and the meaning of what resilience really means in the workplace is the “little bit of Magic”. Thank you, Ian, for the guidance and understanding. No matter how good we think we are there is always room for improvement”
David Noble, Owner, Morgan Blake Solutions Limited
“The Masterful Programme with Ian Hacon at Yellow Brick Road has been a real eye-opener for me. I have learnt so much about myself and others which has, and will help me change my views on how to deal with different issues. I found that Ian really listens to all the delegates in the room and always has a response to your questions. I would definitely recommend this Masterful Programme to anyone!”
Mitchell Vale, The RedCat Partnership Ltd
“I was quickly engaged by Ian Hacon and understood the direction and content of his course from week one. I am in total agreement with the methodology he is using and know that we can make great success in our lives if we do as he says and focus on our mind, body and soul. Every week, I have learned from Ian and the other delegates. I particularly like Ian’s delivery style and that he has the confidence and maturity to allow his planned sessions to take different turns as and when needed but always bringing us back to focus on the job in hand. Ian listens and responds dynamically to his delegates and makes us feel that our input is both valued and important.
My particular gain is the affirmation that many people are struggling on a day to day basis with their work life balance (me included) and that there are solutions for us all if we are willing to make changes to achieve them. I have gained clarity in the last few weeks, focused more fully on what direction I am going in with my own business, my health and my well-being and overall I appreciate his energy, enthusiasm and obvious drive to guide us all on to be the best that we can be.
I recommend this course and would like to see companies engage Ian to deliver his methodology to their employees in the workplace.”
Nicole Kennedy, CEO and Owner, Nature’s Routes Ltd
“I have been hugely impressed by the depth of detail and research together with the energy and passion Ian has shown to the subjects we have covered. The series has been delivered in a relaxed yet professional style, he has managed the group & their expectations immensely well. I have gained so much, and can highly recommend, either as an individual or as a team”
