Self-Led Classes…

My third Skillshare class, about Digital Wellness & Productivity at Work, went live in late July 2020. It was made in collaboration with Skillshare and you can access the first lesson here to see what it’s all about.

 

My first two classes are about Creating Performance Enhancing Routines and Leadership & Communication Skills. They were made a few years ago when I was just starting out on this path.

News about Events, Workshops, Courses and more….

As well as working privately with clients and teams, I also run occasional public virtual workshops and online training. These are open to any professional business people interested in developing their skills around mindfulness and productivity.

 

I usually post news about these events here. More coming in late 2020.

What people are saying about working with me, my workshops and mentoring programmes.

“I loved the variation of content and subjects, yet how aligned they stayed with the theme of mindfulness and intentional living running throughout, alongside some practical operational considerations for business usage. I learnt a lot about mindsets and learning styles. Mich has a calming influence, yet keeps you engaged throughout. This worked well considering the topics we were covering.”

Emma Louise Gibson

Strategic Consultant – Brand, PR & Marketing

“I love that the focus is on you and makes you think about how to improve yourself. I liked talking openly about topics you normally don’t even think to discuss. Having an insight into how small changes can help achieve your goals allowed me to take things slower and not want instant success.

 

Mich was great at connecting with all members and I think that really helped people to open up and have a more beneficial experience. She makes you think about the smaller things in life that can have a massive affect in the way we work and live.

 

This is presented very informatively with a practical activity after each session to make sure you have understood the topic. The benefits of the course is to make a better you. To consciously think about what you would like to do and the small steps to enable you to do it.”

“I think the programme has helped us tremendously, not only as a new company defining our work ethic and manifesto, but as individuals too. It has helped us reflect on what work means for us and how this might affect others we interact with.

 

I loved doing this with you. It has really made a difference to me personally and for our business.”

“I love the concept of this programme. Mich has a lovely way of making you feel comfortable and not judged at all. The mentoring programme helped me because it gave me the time to stop and think and reflect on a few things.

 

It’s good for making you look at how you work and certain behaviours you have in your work and personal life, around process, technology overuse, stress and culture. The exercises really made me think differently. My key learning was that small changes over time make a big difference.”

“The whole framework and the exercises we completed during the programme really helped to tie together the issues we face in our daily work routines, and the direction we need to take in order to alleviate or attempt to eradicate the problems.

 

I liked how you made things relatable to your own life and work background, so we could see an insight into how it’s helped you, but also to make it easier for us to open up collectively.”

“Mich encourages people to feel positive about themselves and to make positive changes in the way they work and their environments. This is really beneficial as it helps people to perform to the best of their ability, to feel in control and feel positive.

 

I like the way that all of the elements are shown to relate to each other. Rather than a work life balance approach, the Growth Sessions Mentoring Programme shows how the key elements work together across all sections of life, creating a rhythm of success and positivity.”
