About Michael

WEBINAR

The Mindful Leader Webinar Series

Our webinars are not only led by Michael but delve into his experience, expertise, and the research he has worked on for decades as well.

Through them, we help modern leaders and anyone aspiring to be one develop a growth mindset, enhance their self-awareness, and boost their personal effectiveness.

Introducing our new The Mindful Leader Webinar series, consisting in 3x 90-min Webinars:

Webinar 1: Leadership Credibility

Research conducted over 30 years involving 5 million people has revealed the key elements all leaders need to master to gain and retain leadership credibility. In this session we will explore those findings and cover exactly what values you need to role model as a leader to maintain and establish ongoing credibility and maximise performance.

Webinar 2: Growth Mindset

While growth mindset is a hot topic for culture and leadership it can easily be applied to learning new content only. In this session we explore what it means to be a leader who models growth mindset in their behaviour and how to establish a culture of growth mindset in terms of values and behaviours in your team.

Webinar 3: Self Awareness

Self-awareness is typically regarded as the number 1 leadership skill needed to succeed in the new economy. In this session we cover the 4 foundations of self-awareness, the 3 deadly mental habits and the 3 reactions that breach values.

Other available webinars: The Mindful Conversation; Mindfulness; Stress & Resilience; Mental Wellbeing.

KNOWING-DOING
A knowing-doing approach to leadership development at scale

The “knowing-doing” gap and Ebbinghaus’ forgetting curve clearly show that we forget most of what we learn unless we practice it consistently. If leaders aren’t doing it, they’re going to lose anywhere between 40% to 80% of the knowledge they acquire in learning and development programs.

As such, new or better training programs alone won’t drive real change. Transformation takes deliberate practice, support, accountability and consistency.

LEADERS & TEAMS

Information isn’t equal to transformation

Transformation requires a deliberately development culture that is not invested in image protection and looking good. It establishes a culture that knows how to convert innovative ideas and information into deliberate practices that upgrade the work experience and the results it generates.

ORGANISATION

Transformation requires a growth mindset

It embeds innovation mindset and practices into the DNA of the organisation and rewards behaviours aligned with company values leading to an increase in efficiency, engagement and societal trust. It supports employees by building high trust, psychologically safe, collaborative workplaces where both people and the organisation thrive.

TESTIMONIALS

What our clients say ?

Alcon

Misty Shatto / Sr. Director, Culture & Org Development

Mindful Leader (and working with Michael through corporate programs) has had an incredibly positive impact for me. The tools are easy to use and help me to feel energized and creative. I really appreciate the research and careful design of the Mindful Leader app.
Air Services Australia

Stephen Miles / Commercial & Business Performance Manager

This is the first app I have used for my well being and I love it! I did the team starter pack with my People Capability team and really enjoyed that experience. One of my team members said she was a lot calmer dealing with her little kids in the morning getting them ready for daycare. People within that team who I thought wouldn’t really show any interest were actually getting great benefit from the process; I am looking at doing this for a new team soon. Personally, I probably need prompting as I don’t do it as much as I should, especially the Guided Meditation. I have tried to schedule time during my lunch hour to sit in my office, do a module or play some Neurosync and reset for the afternoon. It seems to work for me, my family has the app and my 16 year old son is getting huge benefits from the Neurosync programs.
Nexus Hospitals

David Hugo / Group Financial Controller

Mindful Leader has been of fundamental value and benefit to me during what has been a challenging time personally given the testing process/road of divorce settlement that I have been travelling, not to mention the normal work and parenting matters that are tossed into the mix.

FAQ
What does organisational culture mean?

An organisational culture consists of shared beliefs, goals and values based on the direction an organisation believes in and wants to take. They are usually established by leaders and then passed down and reinforced through various methods, ultimately shaping employee perceptions, behaviors and understanding so they fit within the established culture.

What does workplace culture mean?

Workplace culture is the environment that you create for your employees. It includes elements like values, beliefs, behaviours, goals, work practices, traditions, interactions and attitudes that contribute to the emotional and relational environment of a workplace. It’s the overall character of an organisation that is often unique and strives to be positive.

What are examples of workplace culture inefficiencies?

A disconnect between a company’s core values and employee behaviour, which causes organisations and teams to fail at achieving their full potential

What are the different types of work cultures?
There are four primary types of work cultures:

  1. Clan culture: a friendly, collaborative culture that can be compared to a big family.
  2. Adhocracy culture: a dynamic and innovative environment where employees are empowered to challenge the status quo and leaders are typically seen as inspirationalinnovators who challenge assumptions and take risks.
  3. Market culture: the priority is to get work done to make as much profit and capture as much market share as possible.
  4. Hierarchy culture: an environment where processes and procedures are key, where leaders monitor and facilitate adherence to proven ways of running business activities.
What is workplace culture misalignment?

A misaligned workplace culture is a work environment in which “how things get done” is not in harmony with “what needs to get done” to execute organisational and people strategies. It features low levels of productivity, a high turnover and hiring problems, a misalignment between technology and decision-making, and the inability of the business to grow.

What are the cultural issues in the workplace?

Different sets of beliefs, views, values, perceptions, and ways of doing things based on training received, which can cause friction when misaligned and conflicting with the organisation’s culture.

How do you create a positive workplace culture?

Leaders can create a positive workplace culture through leadership development and by adopting a growth mindset through mindfulness. They need to create meaning, foster wellbeing, encourage positivity, nurture social connections, create a safe space for open communication, create goals that are aligned with personal growth and the organisation’s growth, make teams accountable for their mistakes and highlight it as an opportunity to grow, empower teams to make decisions, encourage honesty and welcome change are all characteristics of a positive workplace culture.
