Win your battles 1 to 11

Win the game

What is 1 to 11?
The 1 to 11 is a philosophy and continual assessment toolkit for SELF RELIANCE, MANAGEMENT and TRANSFORMATION.

Self reliance is the ability to depend on yourself to get things done and to meet your own needs.
Self management is the management of or by oneself. It is the taking of responsibility for one's own behaviour and well-being.
The combination of both of these leads to Self Transformation.

These lead to:
  • Improvements in Well Being, mentally and physically
  • Improvements in relationships both personally and professionally
  • Builds resiliency day to day leading to the ability to deal with life situations
  • Improves workplace performance
  • And much more!
Being self reliant isn't just about meeting your physical needs every day, for example, cooking dinner or getting yourself dressed...
Its about meeting and managing your mental needs also. By becoming self reliant in our minds and managing our way of thinking, we free ourselves from fears and stresses that we encounter every day by using and applying the 1 to 11 Toolkit to any situation.

Why Does your Business Need Me?
  • Every company is dependent on the performance of its people for success.  There is no substitute for human performance.
  • A person is more highly paid and rewarded based on their performance and success.
  • In order for an organisation and individual to be successful, coaching is essential.
  • Coaching assists people to grow and develop, allowing them access and focus on the skills they already have as an individual and a team.
  • Enhanced productivity, effectiveness, resourcefulness, improved job satisfaction and job longevity are all contributed to with coaching.
  • Ensuring both individuals and teams have emotional wellbeing can prevent feeling stagnant and instead promote success.
  • Empowerment and individuality are activated during coaching, assisting people in coming to their own solutions and increasing a person's own development.

  • Author of The 1 to 11 - Life Transformation and Management Program

The 1 to 11 was born out of my own personal battles with mental health issues after retiring from a career as a professional footballer and entering into a challenging role as Learning Mentor for disadvantaged children. Depression and anxiety led to suicidal thoughts. Thankfully I was able to recover before relapsing which, after a few times, I decided I didn't want to go through that anymore.

Simple analysis and recording of my actions during my recoveries led me to see that there were 11 areas that I needed to focus on.

The link was made to 11 players on a football team and remembering an old phrase my managers used to say before the introduction of squad numbers.

 "If you win your battles 1 to 11 then you win the game!"

I use the 1 to 11 framework to this day as an ongoing Life Transformation and Management Program for every area of my life.

The 1 to 11 can be used as a continual assessment toolkit that monitors and helps to improve performance as and when required.

The 1 to 11 works for business, performance, health both mental and physical, relationships and much more.

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for putting us in touch with Martin Pemberton. He did a storming job yesterday delivering resilience training to our teachers. The feedback has been extremely positive and we are very keen to book him to deliver the session again to our support staff in April 2020. He was a very natural speaker and very engaging. The teachers can be a hard audience and so he did a great job with them."

"Martin's ability as a life and fitness coach and EFT therapist was a gift to me as I navigated my way through some major midlife changes and events. In particular, the EFT sessions helped me to come to terms with the loss of a loved one and led to improvements in all aspects of my health and general wellbeing. I would wholeheartedly recommend Martin to anyone looking to overcome emotional barriers in order to lead a more fulfilling life. Look no further."


"Martin was recommended to me through a friend and it was just what I needed to help me regain my confidence in life. He is a true inspiration and I always come out feeling a more happier and positive person and able to cope with day to day life again. He has so much energy and is so positive and is amazing at his job. I feel as if I have gained another friend and will always be grateful to him."
