The MindSet Difference

What sets MindSet apart.

As leadership training and consulting services go, there is nothing else in the marketplace like MindSet.  Our extensive experience, powerful insights, real-world approach, genuine commitment to our clients make MindSet an extraordinary resource to businesses or individuals looking to improve their leadership effectiveness.

A few of the characteristics which make MindSet such a uniquely powerful resource include:

Real World Application

Based on years of personal leadership experience as well as interviews with and observations of exceptionally successful leaders, MindSet offers proven techniques that have shown a powerful ability to engender and protect healthy and vibrant work cultures – including resulting in our flagship customer being a perennial Best Place to Work in it’s metro area.

A Coherent Curriculum

MindSet has a clear and organized focus: to help clients acquire the MindSets necessary to better (a) attract, build, and retain a dynamic and successful staff, and (b) build and maintain a healthier workplace culture. The curriculum draws from a combination of real-world leadership experience and a blend from organizational, social, counseling, and cognitive psychology.

Credible Presentation

All MindSet Clinic presenters have been personally instructed by MindSet creator, Dr. Kim Hoogeveen, and possess a mastery of the material that allows them to lead in-depth discussions, spontaneously respond to client questions and comments, and engage attendees throughout the Clinic. Dr. Hoogeveen personally conducts many Clinics and coordinates all MindSet Consultation and Coaching services.

Applied and Functional Skills

MindSet rejects the hazy bromides that typify so many consultation services and leadership training programs; instead, MindSet teaches attendees real-world tested, roll up your sleeves, applied and functional skill sets and understandings that will enable clients to better impact the culture in which they operate.

Proven Success

Scores of MindSets have been adopted from successful, real-world leadership endeavors. These field-tested MindSets, based on observations and reflections of proven business leaders, have been used systematically over a twelve-year period to build an exceptional organizational culture at Quality Living, Inc. (QLI). With over 500 staff members, QLI has now been honored FOUR times via an independent assessment process as the #1 Best Place to Work in Omaha – a distinction consistent with QLI’s remarkably low staff turnover rate, exemplary teamwork, exceptional customer satisfaction, soaring national reputation, rapid growth, and outstanding financial success.

Mentoring Skills

MindSet presents many concepts in a detailed and distinct manner so that clients can use both the material and the MindSet instructional approach to improve their ability to mentor future leaders within their purview.

Small Group Instruction

Mindset Training Clinics are often limited to 20 attendees (although in specific instances a MindSet client may elect to have a greater number of their leadership staff attend), allowing for customized presentations, personal interaction between attendees and MindSet instructors, and spontaneity. Clinics are fast-paced and intensive. Important concepts and skill sets are presented via engaging lectures, stories, and demonstrations using MindSet presenters.


MindSet materials are only available through MindSet, and given MindSet’s intent to limit the number of clients, those entities that secure MindSet Consultation & Training services will derive a distinct competitive advantage. MindSet plans limited marketing; clients are developed via private contacts with select companies and word-of-mouth recommendations.

Lasting Effect

MindSet’s emphasis on applied and functional skill development helps to assure lasting impact within an organization. In addition, for those clients desiring to do so, MindSet can provide intensive, additional training for carefully selected staff members within a company that will result in those individuals becoming Certified MindSet Trainers. Such internal staff members can then use the MindSet approach and all MindSet materials to ensure that the power of MindSet stays fresh within the company, with MindSet personnel remaining involved to provide periodic support to the Certified MindSet Trainer(s) or to consult on particularly challenging issues facing senior management.

High Quality Materials

Attendees will receive extensive and user-friendly materials that will help them to more easily grasp and implement chosen MindSets within their organizations. The materials include illustrations done by a talented commercial artist who was engaged by MindSet to enliven the MindSet manual.
