Our Graduate Development Programme attracts the best graduates from across Europe who are carefully selected and trained by our in-house experts. A key component of both our Foundation training and ongoing coaching is trading psychology. The emotional approaches and responses each trader takes determine their success. As a result, we wanted to engage external performance specialists to develop our traders’ psychological edge; how they bounce back from bad trades and how to sharpen decision making from both a confidence perspective as well as a knowledge perspective.
The Jedi Trader Programme + One to One Coaching
Length of Intervention
2 half-day workshops plus a series of one to one coaching sessions
Rationale for Delivery
2 half-days delivered a month apart allowed learning and best implementation through self-directed working and feedback with free phone coaching and one to one support.
The Expressions’ workshops, exercises and tools raised our traders’ awareness of what was required to perform at an elite level, daily, in the financial markets, whilst empowering them to take ownership of their psychological performance.
Results (So What ?)
During Foundation training our graduate traders were rated on their psychological readiness to trade live financial markets, both in advance of and post the Expressions’ interventions. Post interventions our graduates reported a significant increase in their confidence to ‘go-live’. 75% of the target graduate group began live trading within 4 weeks and went on to establish themselves as effective live financial market participants.
The Expressions training was intelligently designed with the needs of our graduates firmly at its core. The training was delivered both effectively and professionally, and we would not hesitate to use Expressions again in the future.
