Develop the emotional intelligence of leaders and teams

Create positive attitudes and behaviours in the workplace.

AttitudeWorks is a boutique organisational development consultancy. We develop the emotional intelligence of leaders and teams and create long-term positive attitudes and behaviours in the workplace. Hundreds of studies have shown the link between an engaged workforce, satisfied customers and a positive impact on company profits.

We’ve helped many businesses – large and small – improve the performance of their people, helping them to change the attitudes of their teams and leaders. By doing so, we have helped employees become more productive and satisfied in their jobs.

We develop leaders by improving their emotional intelligence: more effective communication, better capacity to deal with change, increased empathy, and a reduction of negative emotions and destructive behaviours.

Our Services

Building Cohesive Teams

We will help you build a high performing team, facilitating different personalities and helping them to work together effectively by creating positive working relationships. 

Develop Leadership Capability

We develop leaders by improving their emotional intelligence. They will be more effective at managing and influencing people, leading to higher levels of employee satisfaction.

Create a positive workplace culture

We can help create a positive workplace with clear goals, recognition, open communication and a culture for learning, enabling teams to reach a higher level of performance. 

Project Management Skills

We teach the fundamentals of project management: planning, organising, setting and achieving goals, and working in and leading project teams. We specifically focus on the human element of project management.


Our coaches aim to bring out the best in an individual or team, to enable the team to work better as a whole. The focus is on enhancing the performance of an already talented individual, in one-to-one coaching sessions.

Sales Training

Discover how you can improve sales performance by building the emotional intelligence of your people. This means improving your team’s optimism, confidence and resilience.

Behavioural Tools & Assessments

We are accredited in using several psychological profiling instruments to help you learn about yourself. These are best used in conjunction with a training program to develop your skills.

Keynote Speeches

Impress your audience with a speaker who’s entertaining and thought-provoking. Our aim is to engage the audience, leaving you informed and motivated. 

Leadership and management must go hand in hand. They are not the same thing. But they are necessarily linked, and complementary. Any effort to separate the two is likely to cause more problems than it solves


Develop leadership skills with emotional intelligence training.

Leaders that get results are effective at managing and influencing people. Employee satisfaction is more highly correlated with management style than salary.

Good leadership – at whatever level in your organisation- will mean your employees are more motivated and productive.

Studies have consistently shown that leaders who effectively use a coaching and visionary style achieve better results. We help leaders at all levels to improve their leading and coaching ability. By working closely with you, we provide tailored leadership development solutions based on the latest research into positive psychology and neuroleadership.

We’re passionate about emotional intelligence in the workplace.

Our mission is to help you and those around you use your mind more effectively. Your attitude is a powerful tool that enables you to be optimistic, resilient and creative.

We can help you and your people develop the right attitude to reach a higher level of performance.

We work with you to create a positive ‘can do’ attitude in your workplace. Based on the latest neuroscience and psychological research, we provide coaching and training in leadership and team performance.

"Michael packs his Leadership courses with engaging ideas and tips & tricks to help leaders develop and realise their own potential. He works hard to strike the right balance in team activities and his content was peppered with insightful fun video clips which aided the demonstration of key points and insights."

Justine Grieve
Manager, Insurance Programs

"AttitudeWorks' facilitation style, wealth of knowledge and ability to get a group contributing and problem solving within a leadership course was second to none. They constantly challenged my thinking during the course and I felt the impact on my leadership style, and awareness post the course, was instantaneous.

Michael has a genuine interest in the success of those involved which speaks to how invested he is in the development of others...I would recommend any business serious about developing their leaders to look no further than Michael and the team at AttitudeWorks."

Paul Mant
Sales Director at Trade Me

"I knew our audience expected a lot. Michael met their expectations, then exceeded them. He spoke on emotional intelligence, and our audience lapped it up. They loved it. Michael made the presentation very interactive and entertaining. People laughed a lot, yet were highly engaged. He clearly practices what he preaches - he’s a very friendly, authentic human being, and a pleasure to work with. I unreservedly recommend Michael as a speaker and trainer on emotional intelligence."

Paul Jones

"Michael Rooke has that WOW factor that so many facilitators lack. We consider ourselves to be very lucky to have secured his services and I can assure you that other companies would feel the same way. I would bump him up to the top of the facilitator list if I were you because if one facilitator can secure your repeat business, it is Michael Rooke."

Milo-Arne Peady
Macquarie Bank

"I cannot recommend Michael highly enough. His Leadership Development course is the best Leadership Course I have attended. Michael is an excellent course leader and extremely knowledgeable. The DiSC profile is certainly key to becoming a good leader, and Michael's delivery of these concepts is second to none."

Stuart Oakey
Leader & Operations Supervisor at Contact Energy Ltd

"We selected AttitudeWorks, and in particular Michael, to deliver leadership training to our 50 plus people leaders in the organisations. I was highly impressed with the four day, plus follow up day, leadership course Michael delivered and in fact rated it the best leadership course I have attended in my 25 year career. His delivery was superb and he achieved an excellent balance between teaching, group discussion, case study and group break out work. All my direct reports also noted the quality of the course and everyone had some great takeaways that they are putting into practice. I have no hesitation in recommending Michael to other organisations looking for high quality leadership training."
