It was designed originally for the education department to reduce bullying and to create a better environment for students and teachers to learn and grow, to enhance the environment where young people feel safe, valued, engaged and purposeful. However, after it was delivered to several schools the corporate world heard about it and it was tailored to suit this environment. It has now been rolled out to Mercedes Benz dealerships, Health Clubs, Professional sporting teams, schools and colleges throughout Australia and the United States.
The program is driven around 5 key words:
These words are explored in-depth, providing a greater understanding as to how to put these words into action. Particularly, how to uplift staff and employees; and students and teachers to create a more friendly and supportive environment.
Here are just a few reasons why Michael designed this program:
