  • 'Michael led a leadership and culture program within my organisation throughout 2017. He was very relatable and effective with our group of leaders, who were each from diverse backgrounds and professions. Michael’s facilitation style unified the group and broke down any actual or perceived barriers. Personally, Michael gave me the confidence to share my vulnerabilities and learn and grow from them. He taught me to share my stories with people to enable a genuine learning experience. I would highly recommend Michael to any organisation who is looking to create a culture of integrity, accountability and transparency.'

Michael developed and facilitated numerous leadership and change management programs for Swinburne clients and without exception delivered outstanding results.When it came time for me to upgrade my training and assessment qualifications I had no hesitation in engaging Michael as the facilitator/assessor as I knew he was/is among the very best. He did not let me down and I enjoyed learning from him immensely.Michael has an excellent facilitation style and is able to engage and inspire his audience with ease.

  • 'Michael is masterful at leading teams to higher levels of performance. He creates a safe space as a facilitator, a skill not all can do well. This enables the learning where participants are inspired to step up to a new level. I have seen Michael in this space and can testify to the success he has in this area. When people are engaged and having fun, they are learning. He gets results!'

  • 'Michael facilitated the Diploma of Management for a group of managers at Sensis. He was a very engaging facilitator, and was incredibly creative with his activities and delivery style. He had a sound knowledge of management and frequently used incidents that had happened to him to bring life to the training. He always encouraged discussion and was great at summarising the group's responses. I really enjoyed Michael's sessions and would highly recommend him as a trainer.'

    Julia Zumpo

    National Learning & Organisational Development Manager

     
  • 'I have known Michael in a professional capacity during which time he personally delivered professional training services to the REA Group over a period of a year. He delivered his sessions to the highest standard, has been reliable, professional and provides out of the box methods. He also offered one-on-one support after hours.I would have no hesitation in recommending Michael to lead and facilitate training sessions.'

    Adele Wapnick Farmer

  • 'Michael's professional approach and experience regarding training has allowed him to be selected to deliver the Diploma of Management, and leadership modules, to 21 of our employees.Michael is able to deliver the training topic(s) whilst relating to the individual's experiences. This approach has allowed the participants of the course to achieve the most out of their training. (A truly remarkable skill). It also brings out an enthusiasm within the participants that I have not seen.'

  • 'There are many leadership programmes out there, but Kameleons is a cut above the rest. Previous programmes I've been involved with simply discuss your strengths and weaknesses, but don't really give you anything to build on. Michael shares information on your strengths and weaknesses with you, but also discusses how your traits interact with each other. Under his coaching, I've become more aware of my behaviours both personally and professionally, which has resulted in my being better able to handle problems when they arise. I highly recommend Kameleons to any business or team leader who wants to learn how to build a strong, resilient, high functioning team.'

    Christine Tan

  • ‘We spent six days in training with Michael - he was receptive to our requirements and exceeded my expectations. His work, methods and his experience all culminated in excellent end results for all involved. Happy to recommend him as a facilitator.’

  • 'Michael is easily one of the best facilitators I have ever experienced. Michael's training style immediately won me over. His delivery was highly engaging and interactive, insightful and entertaining. I have incorporated many of his lessons into my own classes and programs. I found Michael to be highly intuitive and respectful which was demonstrated by how quickly he built a strong rapport with our entire class, which itself was made up of both men and women from a variety of ages, career backgrounds and cultural heritage. Without hesitaton, I would recommend Michael to any prospective clients.'

  • 'Following the coaching I'm now more confident with running the business and knowing I'm fulfilling all aspects of my role.  The outcomes from the coaching work has increased the whole teams confidence and improved their interactions with one another too. As an example, we now inoculate a person in our team to make sure they are are ready for a difficult conversation - its efficient and has a known outcome: to lift the team. One specific thing I liked was the OAR/BED model - everyone can be above and below the line at times but this is a fantastic model to hear and catch yourself being below the line. This realisation is the key to changing your approach and owning your responsibilities.'

    John Ratten

    Chief Executive Officer

  • 'Leadership coaching with Michael Peiniger has helped me more than I thought it would, I wasn't sure what to expect but his coaching brought out the leader who was always in me, but perhaps was a little afraid. Michael has taught me to be assertive, organised and efficient, he also guided me to be more open with my team which sometimes means being vulnerable which is a strength I never recognised.  I could list the different models which helped me (which are many) or what I now do differently every day, instead, I just urge you to let Michael into your office and chaotic mind, because being a leader is difficult but Michael will help you tidy it up, sort it out and lead your team to achieve your organisations goals.'

    Francesca MacPherson

    General Manager

    CIC Higher Education

     
  • 'It was a great journey going through the Executive Leadership coaching with Michael. I was able to explore a lot of new ideas and look at situations from a new perspective. The most important lesson for me was “Don’t assume”. Differences arise because we assume rather than ask questions and Michael helped me recognise all the different ways we assume instead of getting curious and asking questions.'

    Annie Vassil

    Campus Manager and Program Coordinator

    Southern Cross University

     
  • 'Michael’s improvement on myself as a person and a leader has been an absolute blessing. He has focussed on my weaknesses and is constantly improving them to ensure my work ethic and integrity align with my visions.'

    Steve Papa

  • 'Michael coached me in techniques which changed my behavioural approach in the workplace, which further improved the quality of my relationships. He once asked me about my dream job, and what I was doing to make it happen. Well, six months later following my coaching, I was there, in that job, making things happen! Do not underestimate the value a good coach can have on your life. Call Michael, make it happen.'

  • 'It is rare and a privilege to sit with and learn from an individual like Michael. Not only is Michael's content practical and real but the manner in which he presents leaves you understanding not simply knowing - there's a tangible difference in his work. The learning actually does impact you, your team and how you/we communicate. The workplace is not always rivers of chocolate and rainbows and Michael helps de-mystify this courageously but practically.'

    Keiran Toohey

  • 'Michael's coaching has had a profound impact on both my personal and professional life. His ability to encourage deeper thought processes has resulted in a more holistic approach to how I manage a variety of situations. The coaching and practical exercises have developed my confidence and ability to face challenging situations.
    This has been a valuable investment with both my employer and family seeing the benefits. Highly recommended.'

  • 'Few people have the opportunity to be guided and inspired by Michael but I have been one of those fortunate to experience the focus, generosity and compassion of his coaching support over the last 6 months. I am in awe of his ability to strike the right chord in his feedback from the Integrity and Values profile and leave me confidently and positively able to run with it afterwards. I just wish I had met him earlier in my career!'

    Marianne Matin

    General Manager, Capability & Change

     
  • 'I worked with Michael Peiniger as he helped me to confront some career challenges I was then facing. He stretched my thinking, was kind and considerate, and he really made me work hard! In the end, I have been able to move to that next stage in my career, and I am so grateful for his sage advice at the time and pragmatic approach. I would recommend Michael to anyone who asked me - he is a great mentor!'

    Robyn Goodwill

    Director

     
  • 'Our firm has engaged Michael to complete a number of executive coaching engagements with our senior team, and will continue to do so in future. Michael has a deep understanding of human behaviour and how it can impact the performance of a business. Michael is able to deliver feedback in a direct but respectful way, which helps to create a high level of engagement with those he works with.'

    Matt Bourke

    Managing Director

    Bourke Group

     
  • 'Michael worked with me as my Executive coach for nearly 2 years. When starting the process, Michael and I worked through what I was seeking from coaching, which we regularly reviewed to ensure that we remained on track. I felt through the 2 years I learnt more about myself and my capacity to work in my role and what aspects of the role really mattered to me. When I come up against new challenges I return to my coaching lessons and utilise the tools that Michael provided. The lessons I learnt are life-long and I believe have made me a better Manager and person.'

    Tony Cooper

    General Manager, Corporate Services

  • 'Michael has provided valuable insights into management behaviour and roles within our organization - and into our individual approaches to everything that our work throws at us.
    Michael is someone who can assist you in getting the best out of your leadership team, and making the changes needed to be made clearly understood.'

  • 'I admit I started on the path of coaching with a healthy dose of scepticism, which I suspect is not unlike many others before me. However, I happily confess this was misplaced. Working with Michael over the last 4 months or so has been both a pleasurable and valuable experience. Michael was able to look through some of the symptoms and help me identify and start to address some of the causes of hurdles in my path to greater satisfaction in my work place. At the same time the improved clarity has helped me understand myself and a number of my outside-of-work relationships.'

  • 'Michael Peiniger provided executive coaching utilising the latest behavioural and leadership development methodologies which improved our leadership impact within CSIRO's Mineral capability area. We had the pleasure of working with a coach who truly understands our strategic and operational drivers as well as how to unlock potential in our employees in a time of great change. I would highly recommend Michael for coaching and learning interventions.'
