For you and your mind

Who are we, what do we do and why do we do it

To wake up each day and be the best version of you requires an individual to create a mindset.

To wake up each day focused on the present, not anxious about the past or stressed about the future, and therefore able to protect and maintain your mental health, happiness, identity and fullest potential, requires an individual to create a mindful mindset.

At The Gifted Kind we create and deliver educational materials that are a fusion of mindset, mindfulness, meditation and personal coaching practices that inspire people to create, sustain and protect their own levels of happiness, unlock their fullest potential and invest in their individuality.

A word from our founder

Genna Masterton

Founder

I want The Gifted Kind to be a brand that inspires individuality and an increase in individual happiness. I believe that to be truly happy, an individual must look inward and begin from within. Time must be spent discovering more about who you are and who you want to be. As the founder, I wish for all that we ever create and do here at The Gifted Kind, to encourage and stimulate an individual’s time for personal growth.

Before specialising as a teacher of mindset, mindfulness and meditation practices, I spent the first 10 years of my professional life in education, as a primary teacher. Changing mindsets and experimenting with creative approaches to mindfulness and meditation, will always have its roots for me in the classroom. To give life skills and tools to children will always be what I am most passionate about at The Gifted Kind. In creating and collecting a team here, I wish to find more people passionate about their own industry or sector, transforming workplaces, and men and women’s time here on earth: as a human Being; as the human KIND; with a content and confident identity.

As important as being able to read, write, spell and count, learn another language or be digitally diverse, I believe a fusion approach of coaching mindset, meditation and mindfulness is the educational game-changer we’ve been waiting for in Scotland. Teaching this in our nurseries and our schools, with our children, our teachers and our parents, is at the heart of The Gifted Kind’s mission.

WORKPLACES

Tailored to the individual client or workplace needs, the focus of each session may have varying themes. Concepts and focus points of balance, happiness, confidence, creativity or accountability in the workplace may be desirable. If you believe the effectiveness and efficiency of your workplace will only ever be as good as its individual employees, then your time here is best spent investing in your people and unlocking their potential.

The Mindful Leader

The Mindful Leader workshop and training programme provides a measured approach to leadership by utilising the principles of emotional intelligence.

Delegates attending will understand that applying emotional intelligence to their leadership style will create consistency and a trust in their approach. The leaders or aspiring leaders will leave seeing and believing in their role as a pillar of strength, or unwavering beacon of light for others.

Throughout the workshop, individuals will assess themselves as leaders, setting goals and action points to become fully-functioning mindful leaders. A fusion of mindset, mindfulness and meditation exercises will empower leaders to become self-sufficient, accountable and secure in their identity.

If you believe that building a personal brand is fundamental to driving forward performance and strategic plans then your time here is best spent investing in you and the leader you want to become and the leaders you want to create.

The Mindful Team

The Mindful Team workshop and training programme provides a measured approach to applying principles of personality and leadership styling within a team.

Raising awareness of your own and others preferences can help to instil and embed an ethos and culture concentrated on building and growing a strong, functional, dynamic collaboration.

Whilst utilising profiling and performance tools, individuals will be able to take a bird’s eye view of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats facing their workforce. This is best delivered as an anticipated, assertive process, addressing conflict, skill gaps and promotional opportunities ahead of their time or impact.

If you believe that facilitating the growth of your team by encouraging time to look inwards and outwards, before moving forwards, is best intended when there is planned for, continual and restorative staff development, then your energy is best used powering your team to be the best they can be.

EDUCATION

The Mindful Child

The Mindful Child workshop and training programme allows time to define what a mindful child can be and how we as educators can create one.

Education professionals will have an opportunity to experiment with and consider creative approaches to delivering mindset, mindfulness and meditation with children aged 8-12.

Attendees will leave with tools they can take back to the classroom, tomorrow. They will have the opportunity to create and design their own rituals, routines, scripts and resources. Attendees will have the opportunity to think about specific children and express their own individuality and style.

Empowering professionals to use their imagination and breed confidence with mindfulness in the classroom are the key objectives of this workshop. It is intended that this workshop may be partly responsible for crafting moments of mindful magic all over your school.

The Mindful Classroom

The Mindful Classroom workshop and training programme gives inspiration to education professionals to turn their classrooms or set locations into mindful environments.

Whilst forming mindsets with children, those responsible across your establishment for creating classrooms should consider forming consistent messages with children. Communicating what it means to be mindful in every sense.

Specific to the needs and improvement planning of the school this workshop may have varying focal points. From morning routines to personal development planning, digesting child-friendly language for training mindsets or transforming multi-purpose areas into whole school mind, body and soul rooms.

The Mindful Classroom may best be delivered in term four before a new school year or in term one when all staff are present and thinking about the year ahead. 

Before delivering education specific based workshops within your school please consider our mindful mindset, mindful team and mindful leader training programmes.

The Mindful Parent

The Mindful Parent workshop allows parents and carers the opportunity to reflect on a child’s home environment and routine. Assessing communication between parent and child in this workshop will help to create the best route to deepening connection and love.

This workshop will be filled with educational theory and practices that demonstrate the need for parents and homes to be mindful and consistent in their approach. Delivered in an educational setting such as a school or through a community organisation or even in the comfort of someone’s home, the workshop may take a specific theme or focus such as sleep, respect, self-esteem and responsibility.

Using a fusion of mindset, mindfulness and meditation practices this workshop will give parents an opportunity to reflect and open their mind to fresh ideas and simple principles to begin utilising at home.

We believe moulding a child into the best adult they can be in the future is a craft worth investing in today. Developing a mindful perspective on your parenting will create mindful children tomorrow.

‘I joined Genna’s workshops not knowing what to expect, but feeling a bit lost and deserving of some ‘me’ time. I have found warmth, friendship and inspiration within beautiful surroundings, sharing tea and home baking whilst sharing feelings I didn’t realise I had. Every workshop to date has left me feeling better about myself and I am determined to become the best me possible because I attend.’
