About Mike



Mike is a Transformation Professional and Learning Leader who helps leaders and organisations to solve the problems that they have not been able to solve elsewhere.

He works with the underlying mental, behavioural and deeper innate dynamics that drive people’s and organisations’ thinking and actions. They learn how to tap into their inner and outer capabilities in transformational ways and lift their perceptual abilities to see their world, its problems and emerging solutions with fresh eyes.

At the organisational level, Mike’s approach challenges the status quo and hierarchical thinking. He takes you into the world of living ‘open & adaptive’ systems and their self-organising nature. From there you will be able to create a workplace culture that naturally draws from the collective wisdom of all its people and that is highly adaptable to the changing winds of a complex world.

Leaders learn to lead with emergence, rather than pre-defined destinations, to ride and work with the wave of uncertainty and ambiguity. And use it as a conduit for innovation and creativity.

The nature of Mike’s approach and expertise makes it suitable for most areas in business that need to maintain their performance ability. This includes Vision, Purpose, Self-Actualising Leadership & Organisational Cultures, Strategic Thinking, Self-Leadership, Customer Experience & Relationships, Staff Management, Communicating with Impact, Conflict Resolution, Transformational Coaching, Public Speaking, Sales and Sales Management.

A former 5 Star hospitality specialist with the Hyatt International Hotel Group, he has presented to and worked with clients from the private and public sector that include the Hilton Hotel Group, SKYCITY Casino, Accor Hotel Group, Beyond Imagination Entertainment, Hughes Limousines, Roche Pharmaceuticals, SA Local Government, DENR, DFEEST, DFC, TAFE SA, South Australian Cricket Assocation, Telstra, ANZ Bank, Guide Dogs SA.NT. Rural Bank, SA Health, Toop & Toop, Brock Harcourts, Professionals, RAA, City of Salisbury, Orana, Adelaide Crows, Datacom SA and the University of Adelaide.

Mike’s thinking is influenced, amongst others, by the cognitive behavioural fields of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Applied Neuro Synergy (ANS), in which he is an Internationally Certified Trainer & Master Practitioner and Neuro-Semantics (NS) and the field of Structural Dynamics (the Creative Process), systems dynamics and humanistic psychology. He is tertiary qualified in Human Resources, Organisational Development & Change, and Training & Development.
