High performing leaders and employees are agile, adaptive and a powerhouse for your team and workplace. The skills it takes to consistently perform well and maximise our own potential does not always come naturally. We can all benefit from continually to evolve and refine these skills, as our needs change over time, especially as we move through our professional and personal journey.
There are many pathways to peak performance and Michelle leads a range of powerful, practical and engaging programs to help your leaders and employees build the necessary skills to amplify their best selves to the workplace.
How well do you lead yourself?
We all look for exceptional leadership externally but forget to be the best leaders to ourselves. Most of us have never been given a clear approach to lead ourselves well or had role models that demonstrate inspiring self-leadership.
In today’s complex workplace experiencing continual change and challenge, leaders and employees benefit from developing superior self-leadership and self-management skills to maximise their potential and to contribute productively to their team. Although familiar with the concept of leading others, leading oneself can be a game-changer.
“When people become empowered self-leaders, they’re proactive self-starters
who look for ways to make your organisation flourish.” Susan Fowler
The program includes deepening the skills and understanding of self- awareness, self-leadership and self-management while exploring the personal, professional and workplace ramifications of not leading or managing yourself well. The skills and strategies for increasing personal agency can be very useful for building autonomy and empowerment to manage workload and productivity. This program also explores an understanding of the brain to manage ourselves through conflict and emotional triggers.
EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE PROGRAMS

PROFESSIONAL RESILIENCE PROGRAMS
Your customers need the best your staff have to offer.
Savvy workplaces, especially those where customer relationships are critical to your success, increasingly recognise the need for their workforce to function cognitively and psychologically at their peak.
Where there are significant stressors in leadership roles, professional services, complaints handling, customer service and health services the ‘emotional wear and tear ‘experienced by the workforce can be even more challenging.
Research indicates that employees of the 21st century need to develop a vital set of skills in order to sustain peak performance, through maintaining resilience, psychological flexibility and mental wellbeing.
At the same time, firms have an essential role in ensuring leadership practices and team culture align to create a psychologically safe and thriving workplace.
This supports performance and productivity, whilst concurrently providing the best environment for staff's mental and psychological well-being. Emotional wear and tear is draining on ourselves and our organisations. Knowing how best to manage ourselves can be incredibly liberating.
