We use and recommend a range of tools that we make available through the programmes and online.
5 tools to change your world
Following on from his successful Shifting Gears, Ian’s 5 tools to change your world is a straightforward, jargon-free guide to dealing with life’s everyday difficulties.
This book does not attempt to fix you with a prescriptive list of things that you should do. Instead, it sees you as the resident expert on your life and keeps you firmly in the driver’s seat.
The 5 tools described are simple skills and concepts, such as seeing other viewpoints. You are actively encouraged to decide when, where, and how to apply each tool as you see fit, using some or all of them to navigate and control your own unique journey. These tools are powerful, instantly applicable and timeless.
By deliberately focusing on the future and creating what you want to experience, the book offers
strategies rather than solutions. It’s not about ‘how to’ but rather ‘how do you want to…’
For over twenty-five years, Ian has worked with people from all walks of life and brings a wealth of practical and managerial experience to his writing. He has facilitated organisational development at a senior level in many countries and still regularly delivers his Shifting Gears program. His book, while applicable to everyone, will be of special interest to those in a leadership role.
A stimulating read, 5 tools will draw you back time and again, to provide you with fresh insights and the opportunity to add greater meaning and value to your life.

SG Memory Jogger
The SG Memory Jogger is not available in libraries because, as the name suggests, its focus is to serve as a reminder for people who have completed the Shifting Gears programme. Used in conjunction with Shifting Gears, the SG Memory Jogger serves as a quick reference to the concepts and skills needed when you are looking for new ways to deal with a situation, whether or not you participate in the programme.
