What our clients are saying.

“Michelle brought a dysfunctional team together to work as a unit, benefiting both the assistants and the teams they supported. She was very professional, yet at the same time was warm and friendly to everyone, making each experience with her enjoyable and memorable. She works equally well with management.”

“I just LOVE this course!!! The Team Energy program is one that I highly recommend to any company that is looking to instill a new mindset and approach to how managers lead and also how teams can interact. I had the opportunity to run this program in two different companies and have found that in both of these diverse organizations, managers learned how they could better understand and communicate with their staff; and teams learned about their individual strengths (energizers), and they learned how these strengths showed up in their teams and discussed how the team could approach projects and initiatives in different ways based on this new information. This created high and positive energy each time teams entered into these discussions. In addition, I want to comment on how effective the training is on the associated activities and conversations especially about energy levels, overdrive and energy drainers; this is an eye-opener for the participants because it helps to increase their self-awareness and explain why they “show-up” as they do at their job. The understanding of your energy impact on your relationships and your strengths is one that has been a “game-changer” for managers and teams I have worked with, I strongly encourage your teams to be open to experiencing this change through this program.”

What participants are saying about Energy Catalyst Group

“The Team Energy™Program was fun and informative with practical tools, I loved learning about my energy level and how it impacts the people I work with – especially my team.”
“The section on energy drainers was very powerful and timely. The content really resonated with me.”
“Reviewing our Strengthscope™ report and understanding how our different strengths affect the broader team was very helpful.”
“I was energized by the entire Team Energy™ program!”
“The mindful meditation moments were very valuable.”
“I can now see my strengths in action at work because of The Team Energy™Program. It was beneficial to let go of spending too much energy on areas I may never excel at.”
“The Energy Equation™ was incredibly valuable in actually denoting where I was high and low with the percentages [from the Energy Inventory assessment].”
“It was fun to be able to look at where our strengths are in overdrive and be able to acknowledge and even laugh at ourselves as a team!”
“The Energy Equation™ makes it easier to understand the shifts in my energy and motivation so I can plan and proceed accordingly.”
“The Team Energy™Program helped me recognize that others on my team have different strengths and that was very insightful.”
“Understanding that we all have an energy impact is really helpful and made me aware of how I show up, and also my coworkers – really valuable!
“I used the skills from the first session to have performance conversations during Mid Year review discussions. I can also see it helping in “problem areas” to come from a new more positive angle. And, to find new ways we can work better together now we know this information.”
“The Managing Performance program was interesting, it helped me to see the areas where we were unexpectedly different, which helped us not just understand each other better, but also understand ourselves.   I used their assessment to help tailor my conversations better – basically to better understand their motivations, which was sometimes puzzling to me. It was great having more time for reflection and development to learn new ways to manage these conversations.”

I loved the Elevate Your Life workshop! For me, it was transformative and I discovered new ways to relax and take a break from my daily routine. I’m grateful to have participated in this wonderful program.

I can’t stop thinking about the things I’ve learned and applying them since taking Elevate Your Life workshop! Taking 15 minutes a day to do something for myself has been crucial to my well-being.  I’ve also learned to identify the “meddlers” in my life and mind, quiet the noise and activate the “player”….skills I didn’t have before this workshop. I feel completely re-energized!
