Drawing upon the experience of two of Great Britain’s finest Olympic athletes, Steve Backley OBE and Roger Black MBE, and combining this with experienced business coaches, BackleyBlack enables individuals and organisations to gain knowledge of what drives sporting success, translating it into real-life, day-to-day activities that can be acquired by anyone with the will to commit.
With a rich history and an appreciation of elite performance both in practice and analysis in our sporting past, at BackleyBlack we have identified what we believe to be the non-negotiable factors that drive great results and that also apply to other industries. Our model has been built, challenged and tested by many of the elite achievers that we have met over the years, and we feel represents the ‘truths’ of any top performer.
We therefore typically use the following performance framework to help introduce the key therefore typically use the following performance framework to help introduce the key factors we consider to be fundamental to any performance journey.
What makes BackleyBlack online and in-the-room workshops different is our ability to embed the principles of Olympic excellence within highly engaging, business focused development.
This unique design coupled with an interactive and pragmatic approach means that you can expect a far higher level of motivation and skill transfer, and in turn gain a greater level of performance in the workplace.

Specially for the Mind-Setting Programme
What is Mind-setting?
Mind-Setting is a new online personal development programme and step by step blueprint to help users optimise their performance. It integrates the best sports practices with proven personal development skills and habits of high performers, to help users to build the best version of themselves in their professional, sporting and everyday life.
Who is Mind-setting for?
Mind-Setting is designed for individuals who want to reach their goals quickly and efficiently. It is understood that performance comes from achieving excellence in 3 areas, namely; Knowledge – Skills – Behaviours.
Mind-setting focuses on the latter of these three divisions, and will guide users through the essential habits that make up effective behaviours – gleaned from industry leaders and effective performers in sport and business and that users can transfer into their own world. We have identified and modelled the key skills and habits from sport and of successful people from other fields, and converted them into practices (a coaching point from either Steve or Roger) that anyone can develop, and apply to everyday life.
How does the programme work?
Via our online portal, users are introduced to one of these 25 Practices via a short video, which will encourage users to begin envisioning how creating more positive habits can be applied to their own individual journey. Each Practice builds on the previous – as part of a specific step by step system to deliver high performance. A 50+ page downloadable Course Companion guides users through the programme with practices and exercises to help further embed the topics.
“I’ve viewed the videos, thank you. I love them” 😊

“A flexible, and engaging way of learning – the ability to access the course at a time that best suited each learner was great! Steve, Roger and Paul provide detailed and practical insight as to how adopting a positive mind-setting can help us all achieve goals and lift our performance. We followed up each session with a virtual workshop which allowed us to explore understanding and define how the techniques could be applied to our personal and work related worlds”
