The Power of Personal Leadership: Attitude Makes the Difference

We all possess the ability to profoundly impact another person by the manner in which we conduct ourselves. When we go out in the world with a happier disposition, we impact others positively. By our own demeanor, we create an energy force that has the power to change attitudes and change lives. We should never underestimate our own personal power!

No More Drama! How to Build High Engagement, High Morale and a Happier Workplace

Organizations of every description are feeling the pressure of delivering results for their clients and shareholders in less time, with fewer resources. Teams are expected to be efficient, engaged and happy. However, the demands of today’s workplace often take a toll on the most important resource of all…your people. Under these conditions, it is not uncommon for drama and chaos to reign.

It’s Time to Take the Lead: How to Lead Yourself First at Work, in Business and in Life

We are living in a time of unprecedented economic and social turmoil. We look to our jobs for security and our leaders for inspiration; often opting for the status quo – because staying stuck is easier than creating change. Michelle provides audiences with strategies and solutions for taking the lead, no matter what the economic circumstances or one’s title may be.

Elevate Your Influence! How to Increase Your Leverage, Strengthen Your Impact and Energize Your Business Relationships

There has never been a better time for managers and leaders to elevate their influence. A higher percentage of senior leaders and CEOs now recognize the importance of including leadership perspectives from a variety of departments regarding overall business strategy. By increasing your visibility and impact, your career flourishes and your organization benefits by having your ideas heard, understood and acted upon.

Women, Leadership and the Strategic Advantage

The contribution of women strengthening team dynamics cannot be underestimated. Recent studies in Harvard Business Review found that a business group’s collective I.Q increased significantly with women on the team. The evidence confirms that the appointment of women to leadership positions contributes to the opportunity for? significant business growth.

Leading Yourself Through Change and Uncertainty

In recent times, the world economy has taken us on an unforgettable rollercoaster ride, the likes of which few of us have ever experienced. We aspire to a prosperous, stable future for ourselves and our families and have an intrinsic desire to remain optimistic in the face of so much uncertainty. Yet, the stress of doing more than just surviving; financially, professionally and emotionally has become a struggle.  We begin doubting ourselves and our capacity to be the leaders of our own lives. 

Leading The Generations:Adjusting attitudes for outstanding, collaborative workplaces

The notion of having one job and having it for life does not hold any appeal for the new generation of workers. Those days are gone forever and unless organizations are willing to invest in their people emotionally and financially, the best and brightest will unashamedly seek opportunities elsewhere, leaving you scrambling to replace them.
