Obtaining the right help to achieve your goals

How many athletes have achieved success without the assistance of a coach or mentor to help them? How about top business performers? You may think that there is a difference between the sports world and the business world and there are some … but ultimately both are focused on achieving goals.

Coaching is the norm in the world of sport where individuals and teams engage a coach to provide insights, assist with motivation, enhance skills and refine performance. Sports coaches aim to bring out the best in an individual or team, to enable the team to work better as a whole. The same benefit can be seen in the business environment for people at all levels, in any role.

In particular managers and executives face daily pressure to perform at their very best. A business coach works in the same way as a sports coach - raising awareness, reducing interferences, exploring choices & options and increasing commitment to accountability to take action.

Performance = Potential – Interference


The focus is on enhancing the performance of an already talented individual.

Our one-to-one coaching offers a confidential relationship which provides challenge, clarity, encouragement and objectivity. Often more effective than training programmes, one-to-one coaching is a tailor-made personal and professional development program for the individual. We help you bring out the best with tailored coaching.

We always aim to be progressive.

Our development programs just got a lot more compelling. We use Coachmetrix, the latest cloud- based development and coaching assessment tool that combines the features needed to optimize and measure your progress and the impact of our coaching.

"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."

"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

"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."

Nigel Jeffries
Head of Trade Me Property

"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

"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."
