How clients are impacted by Mike ...

"Mike has the ability to create a space where we can connect deeper as a workplace community and draw on our collective intelligence. Essentially, it is a space that allows us to step outside our busy minds where we can see issues and challenges with fresh eyes and clarity."

Danny Harmer, Training Operations Manager, Access Training Centre, South Australia

“The ‘Bringing Out the Best in People’ workshop exposed me to a different way of approaching difficult conversations & how people think by stepping back & viewing the situation from an ‘up above’ perspective. The workshop also gave me an understanding of how to challenge my frames of reference & meaning to intentionally choose my attitude & approach to new tasks which I have found really useful. Taking a moment to get myself into the right frame of mind is so powerful & valuable & is something that I deliberately do each day now.”

Sarah Gerrard, Branch Manager, Bendigo and Adelaide Bank, Adelaide South Australia

In a business where people are a vital asset, I have been able to apply skills picked up at this workshop to gain positive results and maintain a better balance of proactive accountable team members making my day more productive and focused on the running of the business. Learning new skills through this approach allows good operators to play on a different field. A winning one.”  

Josh Hampton, Restaurant Bars and Events Manager, Parkroyal Melbourne Airport, Melbourne Victoria.

“Hi Mike. You might be interested to know that I spontaneously coached a friend in need last night on the eve of having to go to court on an extremely emotional and stressful matter today and I actually helped her create a state of calmness and optimism and anchored it and she told me this evening that it well and truly worked and really helped her get through today and she had a positive outcome.  I was hoping that I would do it properly (being a novice without any material to remind me of the process) but I just kept thinking ‘please let me help my friend’ and put myself into a calm state and it all went according to plan! Unbelievable!! And of course … your influence is spreading and making a difference.”  

Karen Lane, KM Manager, Minter Ellison, Adelaide South Australia

"I attended a session with Mike titled “Powerful Conversations for Leading Transformation” and observed him conduct such a conversation, it was quite brilliant! In a relaxed and personable manner Mike was able to change his client's attitude and approach to a problem almost it seemed, without the client being aware of what was happening. There was no “technique” used, it was simply a chat and the result was remarkable.”  

Rob Parkinson, Rob Parkinson Coaching, Adelaide South Australia

“Mike has been an effective coach in not only making me feel completely comfortable in being able to open up to him to discuss important matters but has been a great leader in keeping me focused on what’s important, and how to better approach people-related situations. After working with him, I feel much more balanced and much more aware of my own actions and thoughts in order to get better people outcomes.”   

Selina Radetti, Recruitment Consultant, RAA, Mile End South Australia

“With the constant challenge of satisfying high customer demands, managing a high-pressure operation and contributing to the organisation’s senior management team can be quite a juggling act and at times can cause much friction. As a result of Mike’s coaching, I am now a better-equipped communicator with a greater capacity to make better decisions, maintain my composure in challenging situations, constructively engage with the management group and contribute to my work in more harmonious ways.”   

Simon Bryant, former Executive Chef, Hilton Adelaide, Adelaide SA, Celebrity Chef on the ABC’s “The Cook and the Chef”

“When working with a client just recently, I was able to bring into play a number of the principles about the higher intentions and states that they are in. After doing this program it really helped me to understand the nature of our higher intentions and also to communicate this to my clients … you could see the light bulbs going off for them.”   

Michelle Holland, Director & Principal Consultant, Synergy IQ, Adelaide South Australia

About the Author

Mike is a Transformation Professional and Learning Leader who helps leaders and organisations to solve 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 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.
