Dean Bellman MCMI

Director, ValueBehaviours

Through his experiences as a Royal Air Force Special Forces Hercules (C130) pilot and flight instructor, Dean has witnessed, first hand, the power of positive mindset.

In both Special Forces Operations and Flying Training mindset is of equal importance to skillset and the combination of both determines the level of performance, resilience and success.

Dean is a keen proponent for the relatively new field of Positive Psychology which focuses on the study of positive outliers. The strategies and techniques are proactive in nature, meaning that, instead of diagnosis and treatment, all focus is on build and prevent.

Dean now works, with his team at ValueBehaviours, to deliver Positive Psychology based training in Performance and Positive Mental Health to audiences across all sectors.

By creating and teaching practical techniques, which can be adopted to enhance Positive Mental Health and Performance, we can help individuals, teams and entire organisations to Take Responsibility and Take Control.
