Do you have a hardworking high performing team?

Do your people go above and beyond for your clients and do great work?

Do you see your team more as a second family than a set of employees?

Would you like to reward your people with something unique, relevant and truly empowering?


If you answered yes to the above, then I have designed this workshop for YOU!



Over the last 15 years I have been delivering people solutions to businesses across New Zealand, Australia and Italy. From 20 minute keynotes to multi-day, multi-year programmes. I have found the sweet spot for small businesses with 4-20 staff is a 3.5-4hr workshop together sharing the three most important ideas.

The 3 outcomes of this workshop include:

1. Gifting your people with awareness and understanding of the greatest asset they have to facilitate personal change (and the technique to do so) 

2. Increased trust, connection and cohesion at work and at home

3. Frameworks to assist in faster, clearer decision making so that you can decrease the emotional output and redirect your attention where it matters most


Participants say that after just 3-4hrs with Joel:

“Seriously, on Friday everyone was saying this was the best training session we have ever had within **** and I’m glad I was finally part of it. 

I have taken a lot from Thursday, so really appreciate your contribution to our professional and personal development"

- Sam, Participant 2019

"It was an absolute honour to participate and enrol in your session Joel – your pitch was perfect and the session was instrumental in pulling together a heavy week into a cultural transformation."

- Trudie, General Manager, Antartica NZ

"We feel good as a team that we were honest about not being as cohesive as we would like and it's not a bad news story - we are a profitable and successful business in some ways but we have acknowledged we need more team goals to shift us from operating individually to as a unit and have made considerable progress on this since our training.”​

about what we need to do, to be great
