Tim’s latest book, published in June 2009 by Pearson, is entitled You Can Be As Young As You ThinkIt is an uplifting and practical guide to moving from Old Brained, anxious, defensive, closed, thinking, to Tim’s latest book, published in June 2009 by Pearson, is entitled You Can Be As Young As You Think. Young Brained, creative, enthusiastic and open thinking.

Tim Drake combines the insights of his latest book with those of his previous book (I Want to Make a Difference – 5 Star rated on Amazon) to get to the heart of personal and group motivation.

We, and our colleagues throughout the organisation, want to release more of our natural enthusiasm. We have unfulfilled potential in both our personal and our work lives. Tim helps us find the key to unlocking it.

To do this, Tim explains the Six Wisdoms of Youth, which will allow us to re-discover the freshness, energy, enthusiasm and engagement of our younger selves.

His central message is that tapping into our inner youthfulness and desire to make a difference will energise both us, and the organisation we work for.

Colleagues want to feel pride and a buzz in their work. Customers too are looking for a sense of purpose – as well as freshness and openness – in the organisations they deal with.

Tim helps organisations deliver this, and make a difference.

    SHARPER LEADERSHIP, ENERGISED TEAMS

    • Individuals and teams can operate far more effectively, and fulfil much more of their potential, if they can re-find their Young Brains.
    • Tim shows your people how to get rid of their Old Brained anxieties, fears, doubts – and grumpiness – and get back to their excited, youthful selves.
    • They will become more in touch with what is going on in society – and how their customers are thinking and feeling. They will anticipate changes in consumer tastes and will be more creative, optimistic and enthusiastic – about their jobs, their markets and their lives.

    YOUNG BRAINED SERVICE

    • Customers today can smell at fifty paces whether they are valued by the organisation they are dealing with. Great service is the result of Young Brained enthusiasm providing genuine value. There is reciprocity of enjoyment and engagement in what Tim calls Walking in Customers’ Shoes Service. If some of your front line staff have Old Brains, they need this session.
