I believe in the innate ability of every person to live at their highest potential. My time is best spent working with people, to re-energise their enthusiasm for what they do and why they do it, groom their hidden talents and help polish their skills, thus “Breathing life into purpose”.
I have always had an immense passion for human behaviour and qualified with a degree in Industrial Psychology and Communication, a diploma in Human Resource management and various certificates in project management, coaching and facilitation, change management, organisational storytelling and performance management to mention just a few. I am also a qualified massage therapist, in line with her philosophies around the body, mind and soul trinity.
Through my creativity, extensive experience and driving passion, I deliver the knowledge and skills, the tools, the processes, the coaching and mentoring, as well as the determined and empathetic character essential to develop, transform, energize and align the individual, the team, and the management of the organization.
I ensure that the training provided is personalised and the knowledge taught is holistically entrenched, ultimately ensuring that the organisation obtains their return on investment in terms of human capital.
I am also an associate trainer for the global recognised People Development Team, where I facilitates dynamic, interactive sessions with major corporates on the power of inclusion and creating an awareness of unconscious bias.
I have 17 years of corporate and senior management experience, covering various fields of business knowledge such as my roles in Fleet Management and financial services , Human capital, General Management, Training and Development, Project management champion, Lead roles in Change management and Sales and Marketing, to name but a few. I have worked in the South African market in both the financial and services sectors, as well as being an experienced trainer in Africa.
My specialties range from the tangible, knowledge based facilitation of topics such as finance and sales through to more intuitive and human behavioural based enablement of others in areas such as coaching , EQ ,purpose and value alignment.
Nomvuyo Msuthwana: “Coaching is truly personal and Michelle makes you feel very comfortable to open up and share your ideas, she has provided insight that helped me trust the wisdom of my past decisions, and didn’t merely focus on financial success, but guided me in honoring a unique path toward self-expression,confidence and power. Many times she has helped me see things from a slightly different perspective by gently nurturing an awareness of the bigger picture and goals i have set.
Michelle is detailed oriented, creative, professional, inspiring and fun to work with.” 18 September 2011
