Why you should keep your dreams….tiny

We are all taught to dream big, reach for the stars and believe in the impossible. And that’s great. Until you actually want to get started and change your behaviour. Then, you should keep your dreams tiny. The science of tiny habits, out of Stanford University, shows us how.

Her delivery on the night was professional, credible and relevant – and the suitable reference to Beyoncé garnered much laughter!”

Bespoke programs

Michelle is regularly commissioned to design and develop bespoke programs. She usually does this in partnership with People of Influence.

Here are a few examples.


For our long-term client’s 2017 kick-off of their top 500 people at their Asia-Pacific HQ, we were commissioned to custom-build a development session on adaptive leadership that could be delivered at scale. The focus was on driving change through complexity, stress and resistance and the personal resources to thrive in this intense time.


We were commissioned to design and deliver a 7-episode blended learning program on Wellbeing. The experiential learning pilot program included all aspects of wellbeing and was so successful that an online version was developed, so that it could be accessed by all 30,000 employees. I consulted on the design of the online version.


Our client’s senior leadership of HR across Asia commissioned us to create a program for all of the Asia HR leaders, that could provide fresh thinking for an experienced group who had ‘seen it all before.’ The program utilised tools and insights from psychology (such as growth mindset) and neuroscience (such as the role of threat).

“Michelle did a fantastic job of really understanding our needs and building a bespoke program for that focused on the key areas that we were looking to drive. This was very well received by the leadership team and through the follow up process has now become embedded in our business. I would have no hesitation recommending Michelle.”
