You may already be familiar with the name Callum Negus Fancey, he was 17 year old entrepreneur who dropped out of school in 2007 to set up the highly successful Lets Go Crazy, the 16-plus club night that was heralded as the teen club revolution. Since those days, Callum has established a range of successful businesses. He approached me in 2013 for help with specific beliefs that he thought were holding him back from maximizing his full potential as a leader, beliefs that he therefore wanted to change.
Callum had taken the Barret Values Centre personal-values assessment and his results showed that his only fear-based value was ‘being liked.’ He agreed that this was something that was holding him back, his company had scaled quickly from 20 to over 100 people in a short space of time and he was making difficult, often unpopular, decisions on a daily basis.
Using Cognitive Hypnotherapy I worked with Callum at my clinic in London to free him from those beliefs and began to notice changes in how he was feeling in relevant situations.
After his sessions, Callum decided that I should work with his employees as a company benefit. Callum believes that everybody is disproportionately held back by anxieties that may appear insignificant, but can have a huge effect on everything that an individual does. In business, there should always be focus on removing friction, such as any type of anxiety, as a crucial part of unlocking potential in all talent.
Callum wrote an article - Leadership Lessons: How I Learned To Care Less - about his experience of Cognitive Hypnotherapy which was published this week on YPO.org. YPO (Young Presidents’ Organization) is the world’s premier peer network of chief executives and business leaders.
