Are you tired of being asked to implement the latest leadership trend without being given any real guidance on how to practically do it? How many times have you heard catch phrases that ask you to do “more”;

Be more innovative”

“Build more trust in your team”

“Get higher engagement”

“Collaborate more”

“Coach your team more; don’t tell them what to do”

“Delegate more”

“Show your team you care, but don’t drop performance”

Coaching and Training Services

Sound familiar?

The role of a leader is already full.  How can you do “more” without cloning yourself or working every hour under the sun?

That’s where we come in with practical tools, skills, strategies and frameworks that can help you to get better results, without burning yourself out.  Sound good?  Take a look at our leadership development and resilience services.

If you’re looking to develop yourself personally, we’ve also got you covered.  We provide one on one personal coaching to support you to feel more confident, build resilience, release anxiety and trauma and generally get ahead in life.  If this sounds like you, then you’ll want to take a look at our personal coaching services.

One to one Coaching

Coaching is future focussed, helping you move towards the objectives/outcomes that you want to achieve.  The first session is about establishing your coaching objectives which act as the guide rails for the coaching.

The coaching sessions help to raise awareness, build on strengths, expand thinking, challenge assumptions/limiting beliefs/thought patterns and introduce new strategies for success.  In between coaching sessions you will have tasks to carry out to support you in achieving your objectives and making the changes you want.

Michelle was so good we asked her to come back again

“Michelle designed and supported a big group of both Government and Non-Government organisations to put a healthy viable plan together. Michelle provided a platform to support the group, a safe environment for communication to be expressed, a well thought through process to allow a collaboration of collective thinking and commitment from the group, to then put this plan into action. Michelle was so good we asked her to come back again.” Thanks so much Michelle.”

It was fantastic.  This workshop gave me insights into my own behaviour and positive strategies about how to work together as a team. Michelle’s style was warm and engaging.”


I found the content very insightful about my own communicating style and more importantly the style of other members in the team.  Michelle is a very good facilitator with a relaxed, playful style – while still getting through the work.”
