Mentorship Program

The Sean Edwards foundation mentorship programs are especially designed for drivers, teams, and manufacturers.

Drive with Intention “Live the dream”- 2 day and 5 days courses

Winning is not everything and we place more importance on the desire to win.  We instill the attitude of ‘whatever it takes’ to win no matter what obstacle is placed in front of the driver.

Sean Edwards Foundation has been asked by a number of people within the Motorsport industry if it is possible to produce another all round driver like Sean? We say never the same as Sean as he was a one of kind, a naturally talented unique driver but we do say yes to many of his skills, attributes and attitude that he had acquired from a specific way of coaching.

SEF has worked together with industry leaders who have over 40 years experience in Motorsport, driver coaching, business and management consultant, sports coaching to produce a tailor made program to instill some of Sean’s attitude and attributes into young drivers.

We have produced a course to be able to give each driver an opportunity to gain a clear understanding of what is important to him or her both professionally and personally in order to build and sometimes rebuild the driver into a winning machine.

The reason we call this a ‘teamworking’ workshop is that it takes the attendees through a process that means they initially gain knowledge and through practice attain skill in techniques that they can use throughout their lives in any team in which they are working.

We have proof that teamworking skills are always relevant and an example was when 2 colleagues coincidently met 17 years after they had been on a teamworking workshop.  They were in a meeting together and noticed that they were still using the same common language, tools and techniques.

Team building courses are to develop specific skills for a specific project and to build a specific team.  Once the project is complete the skills are less relevant and often forgotten.

Meet The Team

Daphne Edwards

Daphne has over 40 years of experience in Motorsports. She was the coach to her son Sean throughout his racing career. Daphnes life coaching skills come from her own life experiences and knowledge as well as being trained and certified in the Unitive TM coaching techniques by Dr Charles Bentley in London.

Personal authenticity is all about experiencing each event in your life as a present reality, instead of looking at it through the distorting mirror of the past. Once you’ve become part of that experience, your entire being – mind, body, and feelings – becomes an instrument for opening up receptive channels of communication between your own true responses and those of the people who share your present environment.

In Unitive coaching, we never lose sight of the basic fact that life’s ’problems’ don’t actually exist in the external world – the world ’out there’ – but only in the way that you’ve been conditioned toperceive that world.  You actually have within you everything you need to follow your true path in life. The problem is that you’ve been led to believe that this is not the case – that the only way you can achieve personal authenticity is by buying into some quick-fix re-conditioning programme that aims to attract and to process the widest possible consumer base.

To become personally authentic involves a sea-change in the self. It’s a shift from the personal to the transpersonal; from the ordinary to the extraordinary. Instead of trying to influence events from the outside, you find you’ve become an integral part of them. It’s a transforming process: experiencing the power of the present instead of just observing it. The magical aura it radiates is called charisma – the hallmark of true individuality which shone through with Sean.

Teamworking

Teamworking course – 4/5 days

Just suppose you have someone who you believe is worth investing in but due to the fact they do not have enough confidence or really believe in himself or herself then by encouraging them to work with us means they will be enlightened by their true value. If you are prepared to help fund them and share the rates it could be the life changing experience they need to be the best driver/ designer or worker.
