You’ve leafed through your fair share of bestsellers about mindset and personal growth.

You’ve sat through eye-opening TED Talks that gave you a glimpse of the life you could be living.

You’ve had more a-ha moments than you can count listening to podcasts and following some of the best thought leaders on LinkedIn and Twitter.

But you’re left feeling like:

"All those things should have changed my life by now"

Instead, you’re stuck. You're wondering:

"What have I missed?"

It's not that you don't have the motivation.

It's not that you don't have the self-awareness.

It’s not even that you don’t know enough.

You’re a high performing professional who’s sacrificed a lot to get where you are today and yet, your nagging question is still:

"Why do I feel so dissatisfied?

You’re pretty sure you could pull off the change you want to see in yourself … if you weren’t so tired of:

  • Being at war with yourself and feeling like you’re your own worst enemy

  • Having one foot on the pedal and one foot on the brake and getting nowhere

  • Feeling like your brain, body and beliefs are holding you back

  • Playing it safe to avoid risk, failure and putting yourself out there

  • Watching everyone else succeed and thrive, knowing full well that it could’ve and should’ve been you last week, last month, last year

  • Stalling, stagnating and clinging to the status quo to stay comfortable at your own expense

  • Carrying the burden of mounting aspirations but struggling to turn your good intentions into real action

Take a deep breath and realise that all of those successful people you admire have something in common...

Not one of them did it alone!

Just think:

No Olympic athlete ever made it to the podium without a coach worth their weight in gold.

No musician ever got to the top of the charts without solid strategies and fans cheering them on.

No senior leader or executive ever succeeded in their job without support from the board.

And yet all this time you’ve been pressuring yourself to have a breakthrough all by yourself.

You know it’s time to get help from a coach who understands you and a programme that helps you grow.


MYMindset® is the missing link that takes you from self-awareness to self-authoring using science-based tools

It's a well researched, scientific and systems based approach to accelerate personal change.

Transform the way you think in 3 steps:

  • Life-Style Inventory™ (LSI).

    Developed by Dr. J. Clayton Lafferty, the Life Styles Inventory™ (LSI) measures 12 specific styles of thinking that are either helping or hurting your personal effectiveness and growth.

  • 5 Coaching Sessions

    No ordinary coaching sessions! MYMindset® is a unique synthesis of systems thinking, immunity to change and daring leadership combined with the care of an accredited practitioner.

  • Re-test, Review & Celebrate

    What gets measured gets done! You'll get access to the LSI assessment not just once, but twice so you can measure your growth and celebrate your success!

Your personalised coaching programme:

In MYMindset® you’ll  dig deeper and understand your mind better than any book, podcast or video you’ve consumed.

We’ll combine real data and outside-the-box thinking tools to tackle your immunity to change. So you can finally make that leap.

Through private one-on-one sessions with Karl, your professional accredited coach, you’ll discover your objective, decide on a game plan, and get the accountability your need to make real, results-driven change in your life.

You'll develop a clear, simple and practical action plan to keep you anchored so that you don't revert to your old ways.

And after you’re finished, you’ll walk away feeling lighter, happier and more satisfied than you have felt in a long time.

It works because:

It's based on adult development and vertical growth.  It helps you to handle variability, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity.  This is the type of growth that makes the biggest difference in the "knowledge age".

"My 'mojo' is back!"

Thank goodness I had the good fortune of meeting Karl when I did!

By Tina Harris-Ririnui

When I first met Karl I felt I was an ineffective leader, I felt I lacked influence, I couldn't articulate myself as well as I used to be able - I was failing and I was struggling to get on top of things. Karl 'coached' (and challenged) me to identify and confront the way I think, which impacted on the way I behaved. Through a series of coaching sessions my self-awareness started to grow - the whys became clearer and in a staged-approach, what I needed to do resulted in positive thinking and behaving. My 'mojo' is back! I have clarity, better balance, self-satisfaction, more decisive, I'm happy and I'm an effective leader again. We all need coaches or mentors in our lives to shine light on what we sometimes don't see. Thank you Karl for your guidance and friendship, you are a fantastic being.

Imagine ...

Having a little extra expert help in your back pocket to help you finally break free from the thinking patterns that have been holding you back

"Like a light bulb being switched on."

I left with a breakthrough strategy for myself

by Lisa McCarthy

Working through the "Breakthrough Thinking" process with Karl was like a light bulb being switched on. The process combined with Karl's focused, personable and expert coaching allowed me to identify and understand both how I think, and how the conflicts created by my thinking process were holding me back. I left with a breakthrough strategy for myself supported by three personal objectives. The best way I can describe the impact of this is that it feels like I'm taking my foot off the brake. I experienced the benefit of this experience less than two hours after completing the process when a new business opportunity appeared which I would not normally have seen, or been excited by.

You're probably thinking ...

MYMindset® is a proprietary approach that draws from a wide range of research breakthroughs in psychology, philosophy, sociology, business and productivity.

Unlike other coaching programs that follow a hyped-up affiliate empire, playbook, and list of 'to-do's,  MYMindset® is based on Socratic methodology and modern science.

MYMindset® will teach you a foolproof dilemma-busting set of thinking tools that I discovered in a completely unrelated industry (that few people know about!). And it’s going to change the way you deal with internal conflict. Not just throughout the programme but for the rest of your life.

You’ll never see a dilemma or paradox the same way again because you’ll actually be able to solve it and find that elusive “third option” every time you feel cornered by your constraints.

As part of your MYMindset® journey, you’ll get access to the world-class Life-Style Inventory™ (LSI) assessment not just once, but twice. One at the very beginning to create a benchmark and one at the end to measure your change. Unlike personality profiling, the LSI measures your growth and development. You’ll be able to see your Passive/Defensive, Aggressive/Defensive and Constructive thinking styles mapped out in the form of a circumplex diagram. Think of it as a picture that paints a thousand words about your mindset.

No other self-assessment tool uses the same level of precision to measure the thinking and behavioural styles that are helping or hindering you.

When you get the second LSI assessment, you’ll be able to see the change in your mindset and the progress you’ve made. Yes, you can measure your mindset.  And, what you can measure you can master.

"A razor sharp approach to coaching."

"Clearing the way for the development, practice and embedding of new ways of thinking."

Jonathan Curran - Air New Zealand

Karl combines the elements of High Performance Engagement, systems and TOC thinking and a razor sharp approach to coaching to bring incredible value to our interactions.

(This could be you)

Following the 3 Step programme, this client developed a personal strategy and three key objectives that set them on a path to transformation.

This process is unique, extremely effective and has helped me shift into a new gear as a leader.

by Linden Vazey

I recently engaged Karl to help me create a step-change in my productivity at work. I thought I was quite self-aware, so I was surprised and delighted when the three things we identified to improve included two things I had been aware of, and one thing that I had not been aware of. Interestingly enough, there was a common root cause between these three which was at the same time incredibly insightful and elegant in its simplicity. This process is unique, extremely effective and has helped me shift into a new gear as a leader. I'm excited to see the results that reframing my thinking will produce. I highly recommend Karl to anyone who is looking for results, fast.

So, if you're here because you want to get past:

  • Chasing other people’s approval

  • Living by other people’s rules

  • Staying low on your priority list

  • Butting heads with other people

  • Staying caught in a power struggle

  • Competing with yourself and your peers

  • Startings things you don’t finish

  • Resisting change

  • Being no farther ahead next month or, worse, next year

And you’ve been longing to:

  • Understand your thoughts and behaviours better than ever before

  • Learn how to author your own thoughts and behaviours

  • Create better connections with loved ones

  • Strengthen your relationships at work

  • Fast-track your learning now and in the future

  • Fuel your own growth

  • Increase your confidence and satisfaction

  • Get more done as a person and with others

  • Finish everything you start

In as little as 12 weeks you’ll get results.

Now it’s time to take action!

Here is the summary ...

Being stuck is common; you’re not alone; coaching helps; this is a science-based programme; it is backed by a global leader and a proven psychological assessment and, I am an experienced coach with great reviews.

I will even go a step further and guarantee you results. Most people are done in 12 weeks but I will keep working with you until you have a measurable shift in your constructive thinking styles.

I've already gotten massive results from just a few sessions - impacting me, my family and my business.

I cannot recommend Karl more highly.

His ability to bring clarity from confusion and create a clear path forward is exceptional. I found myself gaining insights I hadn't had before - particularly with identifying security based beliefs holding me back and how they were in direct conflict with satisfaction based beliefs.

The real gold has been Karl's ability to empathetically listen, apply his approach, and bring insights from his years of experience to resolve the conflict and give next steps to move forward with integrity.

Beyond that Karl is one of the most amazing people I've met. Humble, smart, an incredible coach, and genuinely wanting to help people (including myself) become the best version of me and succeed.

He creates a space that is safe to explore the deep topics and brings practical, systematic process to enable real change.

I'm thankful he's done the deep work and can meet me at whatever level we venture into.

I could go on....but in short......if you're thinking about working with Karl - go for it!

Søren Skjold Andersen

Overall I would say that this course is a great way to find and work with psychological constraints.

I have participated in Karl Perry's course Master Your Mindset.

His integration of the Evaporating Clouds from Theory of Constraints (TOC) and the LSI Circumplex is fascinating. Karl has a well-balanced approach of the right technological tools and live coaching session.

Despite being - literally - on the other side of the globe, with 12 hours of time difference, everything worked seamlessly.

Using an approach that took an outset in a self-reported assessment of my own thinking, Karl managed to shed new light on old patterns.

The reassessment at the end of the course demonstrated beyond doubt the impact of the course.

Vesna Mirosavljev

I’m finally flipping my script. And it’s all thanks to Karl’s coaching.

I’ve struggled with mindset and self-imposed limitations for as long as I can remember, so I read books about it.

The problem with mindset books is that it’s easy to nod at enlightening concepts and extremely difficult to make changes in real life. And not just *make* the changes, but make them stick! I only ever got as far as “acknowledging” that I was my own worst enemy and that I desperately needed to change the way I thought about myself. (If I wanted to be successful and be happy with myself, that is.)

With Karl’s help, I had my first breakthrough. Well, no. A series of breakthroughs. (And we’re not done yet.) Karl uses a systems thinking approach that strips away all the noise and lets you see the “origins” and the “whys” behind the belief systems that are sabotaging you. And once you see them, you can’t unsee them. And this step is fundamental, because you get total clarity. Even if you thought you were already self-aware.

Speaking of which, I really thought I knew myself. And yet, even on my first and second coaching sessions with Karl, I had jaw-dropping discoveries that allowed me to see deeper than I ever have before. And the deeper you get, the easier it is to disarm those beliefs.

With Karl you get a one-of-a-kind and truly one-on-one approach. It helps you come up with simple ways you (not someone else) can take action and make the changes stick.

Do I still have hard days? Yes. Old thinking habits die hard. But the difference is now I know exactly what to do to reroute … confidently.

Daniel Prager

Karl can quickly and methodically bring clarity to frustrating and hidden challenges, while maintaining an exceptional degree of safety.

Karl has a brilliant and very well thought out approach to leadership coaching.

His "special sauce" is a combination of method and presence. Karl can quickly and methodically bring clarity to frustrating and hidden challenges, while maintaining an exceptional degree of safety.

Through coaching sessions with Karl I have been able to identify and start to address several areas of personal and professional growth, and have also picked up important lessons in refined coaching technique.

I highly recommend Karl's coaching and look forward to him sharing and further developing his approach!

Richard Thurlow

Karl is a fantastic coach and excellent at focussing leaders on facilitatory and enabling behaviours to assist with team engagement.

His High Performance through Engagement programme has significantly helped me personally that is having great impact on the team here at Waipuna Hospice. A focus on the 3Cs (commercials, consumers and culture) enhance this process and build resilience and strengthen the team to solve complex issues as a team with full engagement.

I thoroughly recommend Karl if you want to unleash your team's potential whilst working on “self” at the same time!

Grant Kedian

Karl's experience in working with senior managers means that he understands the challenges faced on a day to day basis which at times impacts the levers that we have access to.

I have worked with Karl for the last year or so. Through this time Karl has had a significant impact on my thinking and the way that I operate in general.

Highly recommend Karl to anyone that wishes to dive deeper into their "go to" behaviours, and reassess and add to the tools that they have at their disposal.

Adam Heath

I personally found the work to be exceptional and have had similar feedback from other members of the team.

Karl, thank you for the insight you recently shared as part of our individual and team-based LSI exercise.

The positive energy you injected was infectious and appreciated, as was the personal care you took with each of our individual 1-to-1 debriefs.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • You said you would GUARANTEE results? Tell me more.

    You will use the Life Styles Inventory™ from Human Synergistics International to measure your thinking styles before and after your five coaching sessions. If you don't get a measurable shift towards more constructive thinking, I will keep working with you until you do. Results are guaranteed.

  • I know I could use a coach. But how do I know we’ll be a good fit?

    I believe in listening, guiding and equipping, not subjecting you to a cliché cookie-cutter approach. I don’t judge, rush or pressure you, and whenever you feel like you’re having a “block,” we’ll stop and work through it together.  The people I’ve coached tell me that what they love the most about my programme is that I allow them to lead. You’ll own the process, not me. I’m there to give you the right tools and teach you how to use them. And the thing is they actually work—and anyone can learn how to use them. My goal is to help you get to a point where you don’t need me anymore. It’ll teach you how to tackle any situation moving forward. If you’re skeptical right now because you’ve seen too many gimmicky salesy coaching programs out there, I totally hear you. Just go with the monthly plan option for the best flexibility. That way, if you change your mind, you can opt out after the assessment and first session.

  • How does the payment plan option work again?

    If you go with the 4 x $495 (NZD) option, the first payment covers the Life Styles Inventory™ assessment and a full 90-minute coaching session. After the session, if for any reason you decide you just can’t stand my guts, you can end the programme and cancel the rest of the payments. You’ll still walk away with the LSI results and pdf documentation detailing our coaching session. I’m positive that even if you decide to discontinue for whatever reason, you’ll have gotten a ton of value out of the LSI and the 90-minute coaching session.

  • OK, I want to go ahead with the payment plan option. What can I expect next?

    After you make the first payment of $495 (NZD), you’ll receive a welcome email from me. You’ll receive an email from Human Synergistics International with a link to the assessment. It should take you 30 to 40 minutes to complete. It takes three working days for HSI to produce your comprehensive report and send it to me. After I get the report, we’ll meet for a 90-minute session. That first session will be a “technical debrief” where I’ll explain how to read and get the most insight out of your report. We’ll paint a picture of your future self and the real life tangible benefits you will gain.

  • I’m intrigued by these Life-Style Inventory™ (LSI) by Human Synergistics International. How are they going to help me?

    You need robust and reliable data about your thinking styles in order to create an effective plan. What you can measure, you can master. My clients love the LSI assessments because: - They’re much more helpful than personality tests. Personality tests can help us in our emotional intelligence, but they don’t teach us how to develop and grow. 
 - They show a clear connection between our thinking habits and our behaviours. And then through coaching, we can uncover the beliefs that drive our thinking and behaviour—and how to re-engineer ourselves for better outcomes.
 - They can actually measure your progress. I haven’t had one client yet who’s gone through the whole coaching program and not seen a visible improvement on their second LSI at the end.
 - They serve as a visual reminder of where you are (or once were), how far you’ve come and where you want to go.

  • What can I expect from the Zoom coaching sessions? Are virtual coaching sessions effective?

    Most of my clients love the Zoom sessions, and many of them love it even more than the in-person sessions I used to conduct. The sessions involve you and I working through your thinking patterns on the “board,” talking it through and then coming up with a clear, achievable action plan.  For our “board,” I’ll take you to a special online collaboration tool called Miro. Don’t worry. Even if you’re not tech-savvy, you’ll find it easy to use because I’ll tell you exactly what to do when. The most you’ll do is click on a virtual sticky note and type a few words. Most of my clients absolutely love the visual component of the sessions because it’s the first time they’ve ever been able to “see” how their mind works on (digital) “paper.”

  • I’m a company owner or decision maker. I want to purchase the programme for my employee(s). How can I do this?

    If you have one employee who will go through the programme: Simply choose one of the two payment options and follow the checkout prompts. Once the payment goes through, I will send you an email so we can set everything up for your employee and go from there. If you have multiple employees, please contact me at to make sure I have the required number of spots available, and we’ll set it up from there.
