Executive Leadership Coaching Reviews
‘I was looking forward to my sessions with Michael, his insight into management behaviour & roles is very valuable, helping me see things differently & in a way I would have missed easily before not only professionally but in other aspects of life. For any executive/management want to improve and build their management career I recommend Michael highly.’
Highly recommend the Developing Leaders’s leadership program. This program helped me rediscover what I am passionate about and my tolerances. Michael has been very helpful and I was able to motivate myself in dealing with different challenges. I felt positive and was very keen to take challenges, open to more discussion then coming up with conclusions. Michael’s way of delivering was friendly and I was able to know myself more.
I had the privilege of working with Michael as my executive leadership coach during the first half of 2023, and I can confidently say that he has been a transformative force in my professional journey. Michael’s coaching style was personalised and tailored to my specific needs, encompassing a wide range of essential leadership skills, productivity enhancement, and addressing challenging behaviors. Through his guidance and expertise, I acquired a fresh perspective on leadership, enabling me to approach it with renewed passion and confidence. I highly recommend Michael to anyone seeking to enhance their leadership potential.
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.
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 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. I would have no hesitation in recommending Michael to others in search of a similar coaching experience and indeed I suggest most people I know would benefit from the experience of working with him.
Michael is a fantastic coach. He’s very personable, open and approachable. He effectively engages participants and takes great care to tailor the program and his
approach to suit the students. He makes learning fun and enjoyable and helps foster a learning environment where everyone is encouraged to share their ideas, insights and experiences. What I appreciate the most is the way you skillfully hold a mirror to each of us so that we can better understand our strengths and weaknesses, develop our self awareness and awareness of others. Anyone engaged in coaching/training with Michael will get a lot of if it and will walk away not just a better leader/team member but also a better person.
I’ve trained with Michael as both part of group sessions within our company, and one-on-one executive coaching. It was time well spent. The coaching process was an enjoyable way to learn a better attitude and approach to work that resulted in lifting myself and the team, fostering a productive culture of ownership and accountability. We worked on, and I made gains in the following areas: managing tricky work relationships, developing good behaviors with respect to time management & planning, becoming aware of my own habits & self monitoring for what works/doesn’t, and big picture thinking. I now find myself more able to get the results I want from myself and others. Michael’s manner is personable without letting you ‘off the hook’; his feedback oftentimes insightful, he’s heavily invested in helping you find your way to achieve the outcomes you want.
I have recently worked with Michael for continuous training and mentoring to become a better leader. I learned a lot from Michael on dealing with my leadership challenges, how to start building a high performance team and in general find better ways to improve in my day to day business.
Michael was unbelievably helpful – not only for my day to day work interactions, his insights also help in my personal life. Admittedly I went in [to coaching] with some skepticism, but it wasn’t long before his way of explaining things gave me some real life helpful training that I reflect on and utilise daily.
I highly recommend!!
Michael has helped me immensely in dealing with difficult situations over the last 18 months. His coaching has given me confidence in myself to have the difficult conversations which have resulted in improved performance in myself and my team. One of Michaels strengths is his ability to adapt his coaching session to what is happening at the time rather than working to a script which has been appreciated. Michael is easy to talk to and keeps everything in confidence. I highly recommend Michael to anyone to wants to improve and work on their leadership and interpersonal skills.
At first I was a little reluctant to enroll in a leadership course. As I have continued to work with Michael I have definitely reaped the benefits of Michael’s coaching and ongoing support, especially in dealing with difficult situations. I would happily recommended Michael to anyone who is looking for a leadership coach.
Michael won me over in the first session with his positivity and his ability to make the training relatable. Michael’s coaching style is 10 out of 10 and his passion is infectious. He challenged me both professional and personally and with his frameworks I have been able to utilise these lessons in all parts of my life. Michael has gifted me the tools to have open, honest and constructive conversations and I now have the confidence to not only move forward with my career but to acknowledge my own vulnerability and areas of improvement.
‘I have worked with Michael for around the last 12 months and have found his coaching to be invaluable. The level of support and understanding along with the strategic business knowledge he has shared has not only helped me manage my team but also assisted in my own time management, efficiency and professionalism and as a result have exceeded and doubled my sales KPI’s set out for my role. I highly recommend Michael’s expertise to anyone who is considering taking on his services and see him as a valuable asset to any person or business he works alongside.’
Worked with Michael at Developing Leaders over the past 12 months and would recommend. Provided some fantastic and practical tools for managing team and developing my own skill set in leadership and personal development. Highly recommend thanks Michael
‘I engaged Michael as a leadership coach for 3 months. I found his guidance and perspective very insightful. For some aspects of leadership I had basic hands on experience with but it was good to formalise my understanding of it and develop it further and fill in some gaps. Michael created high quality, custom program content based an initial assessment to identify potential growth areas. He also had great flexibility in adjusting the content as my requirements changed during the coaching period due a change in my job environment.’
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.
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!
During the 12 months that I worked with Michael I found him to be a extremely effective Leadership coach and would highly recommend him. Through safe and thought provoking sessions Michael demonstrated a unique ability to accurately hone in on areas we needed to develop. Michael’s insightful coaching, together with an array of practical tools such as the ‘inoculation’ have enabled me to become a more balanced leader.
If you’re looking to build your leadership skills, then I highly recommend Michael Peiniger. I reached out to Michael 12 months ago with the goal of improving my confidence to enhance my leadership style, but little did I know I’d get so much more. The one-on-one coaching sessions are great and focus on what you want to work on rather than a specific coaching or training model while still providing strategies to learn and work on. Michael’s personable coaching style and real-life experiences allow you to humanise your own weaknesses, appreciate your opportunities and turn them into strengths to achieve your goals.
A Great Mentor & Coach!
