The performance of a business depends on the performance of its leaders.  Extended time in nature is known to calm the mind and de-stress the body, whilst boosting mental performance and creativity. Jack Welsh is reputed to have made just 4 key decisions in his 20 years as CEO of GE; all 4 of them made during recreational breaks.  Is it about time you gave yourself the advantage?

"I have worked with Mike as a senior manager in two organisations, with large operational groups focused on better delivery of regulation and also small groups working on presentation skills. Regardless of the size, focus, and organisation Mike has delivered exactly what was required in a way that has engaged and captivated those involved.  If you believe in the importance of relationships and communication then Mike's sessions will take you and your staff to the next level in all aspects of business and life in general. Alongside imparting a basic understanding of how people tick he provides concrete techniques to create respectful, trusting relationships around difficult regulatory conversations to influence behaviour."

Fleur Evans, Organisational Development Manager, Meridian

“Mike is a Leadership champion who creates an environment of trust, controlled energy and personal connection.  I’ve had the pleasure of participating with two groups from our business and the value received has been greater than all previous Management Leadership training I’ve done. My operations leaders and senior management team were equally impressed.  Mike provides a delightful balance of practical lessons, with referral to great leaders and visionaries and shares his own life lessons and insightful observations. The clarity and simplicity of his explanations of sometimes complex concepts really hits home and his facilitation in open forum discussion is fantastic.  The resources Mike provided are now central parts of my Management tool kit.”

Grant Harford, National Operations Manager, MG Marketing

“Mike has delivered several workshops for us as part of our leadership development programme and to develop our peoples' core skills. He has been an absolute pleasure to work with and has gone the extra mile to ensure he catered to the needs of our people. Mike's workshop design and facilitation style ensured that participants had an enjoyable time and left motivated with the tools required to implement change. If an organisation is looking for a provider who produces results and genuinely cares about the experience of the people they work with, I would recommend they approach Mike. Thanks Mike for what you have done for us to date, we look forward to having you back again.”

Matt Holstein, Organisational Development Advisor, AgResearch
