- Thank you so so much for making yourself available to work with the
ACEA. The feedback from our members has been so great we are trying to
set up a full day program with you! The professionalism of the course
and content was phenomenal. Much of the course content can be used in

participants, telling me how much difference it has made to their
lives. Short, sharp and practical. The follow up e-course was also

you once again for an outstanding presentation to 100 of our
Association members. Our members work in various positions in State
Government schools, requiring leadership, teamwork and empathetic
skills. Your contribution to their needs was overwelming and
heartily accepted by all in attendance. We look forward to our members'
online feedback, but their verbal feedback on friday makes us very
comfortable in the knowledge that they left your sessions uplifted,
challenged and encouraged. The ongoing assistance you have offered, via
hardcopy, dvd and regular emails has assured us all of support and
advice to hand, enabling us to lead fulfilling work and personal lives.
Very many thanks on behalf of all who attended. Your presentation has
proven to be an invaluable investment for SASSAOA."

cannot express my gratitude for the anti stress strategies you provided
us in the workshop I attended last Friday. I have been under constant
stress from various sources for many years and suffer from lower back
pain, neck pain, headaches, sinus, unable to switch off from work and I
am a lifelong chronic migraine sufferer. Pain experienced daily ranged
from moderate to severe.
After doing your exercises several times
every day since Friday I have now had 4 days with little to no pain.
It's helped me switch off from work, sleep better and, coupled with your
other strategies, on Monday I calmly and assertively resolved the
issues with my 'difficult' staff member.
I have spent the last 25
yrs trying different practitioners (naturopath, Chinese massage,
chiropractor (10yrs), physiotherapist (5yrs) etc) and nothing worked.
Your exercises and strategies worked. Now I call them ' 7 seconds to
heaven'. The exercises have already been implemented into the workplace
by other attendees at your workshop."

you very much for making yourself available to work with us in

difficult situations. I look forward to working with you again."

"I am very happy, and I must say unsurprised, that all the feedback received from your recent seminar for the NIBA Young Professionals (National
Insurance Brokers Association) has been very positive. The Insurance
Industry is certainly finding that we have much more pressure put on our
day to day activities than every before, and the techniques and
knowledge provided by you will no doubt be invaluable to the attendees.
I would like to thank you
for your enthusiastic and interesting presentation and would have no
hesitation recommending you to anyone working in a high pressure

thank you for a most informative, thought provoking, and last but not
least enjoyable training program last week. To be honest, from past
experience I guess I was expecting another boring and clock watching
session, but I was totally wrong in that assumption! Your
interaction with the participants, down to earth plain talking
examples, explanations and discussions were very enlightening and very
refreshing. The vibe that was in the office afterwards was also a good
indicator that the staff has received benefits from your session."

want to thank you for presenting at our Staff Kick-Off Meeting in both
Sydney and Melbourne. I received some really great and positive
feedback from employees from both meetings. I also received several
"thank yous' to the Company for putting on such a presentation which
was geared to giving them skills to help them not only in their work
life but also their personal life. The sessions were
excellent, they were fast paced, you presented them with great
enthusiasm and they were entertaining yet everyone took away some
information and practical tips to help them handle pressure and their
work/life balance. I thank you once again for two excellent,
informative presentations and would highly recommend you to any company
thinking of using you in the future."

training was fantastic. My team really enjoyed the session. The team
are on the phones all day and really have to juggle many tasks. The
training helped the team learn how to take every call as if it was their
first of the day. The training also gave the team confidence in
themselves and their abilities. The breathing techniques and exercises
have been something I have seen the team using and they are finding the
techniques very beneficial. The presentation was very useful and I feel
it helped the team very much. I found Michael to be very personable and
very open to questions. The morning was tailored very well to my
teams' specific needs."
Kate Hutchinson, Customer Service Team Leader
for the great session you ran for us on how to become more resilient to
pressure & deadlines. As part of our health and safety week
program, your session helped raised people's awareness in this area and
also provided some very handy tips on how to build resilience. The
presentation was engaging and energetic and the feedback we had from
participants was really positive. In a deadline driven environment like
ours, your approach to handling pressure is positive, constructive and
easy to follow. Thanks again for a great session."
you for a great presentation that you delivered to the retail sales
team of Scotts Australia.Your high energy and interactive style engaged
the team right from the beginning and kept them interested and involved
all the way through. You really took the time to
get to know each of the guys in the team and, hence, you were able to
customize the program to suit their individual needs. Everyone
in conference took away new ideas and skills to enhance their
resilience and working stamina that will, no doubt, help them reach
their sales targets. Michael, I thought your program was 'spot on' for our team and look forward to working with you again in the future."

found Michael an engaging and enthusiastic presenter. Michael ensured
that he related to our Conference theme of "The One Constant is Change"
and addressed many of the issues we face in life especially as IT
professionals. Michael was able to ensure everyone was involved and
that we all were laughing and enjoying ourselves while receiving some
valuable "do it yourself" techniques to help us manage change and
stress. I would recommend Michael as a presenter."

have engaged Michael five times now to provide training programs for
our teams with good results.Michael was able to tailor the program to
the specific needs of our industry and problems facing particular work
groups. The key skills people gained from the program were:
* Releasing stress so they can focus for longer periods of time
* Unwinding and letting go of tension after work
* Creating a positive work attitude

someone who can grasp people's attention and communicate effectively

"I would like to thank you for your great presentation and coaching session recently. As
you know I attended out of interest your session conducted earlier in
the year at VECCI and found it so useful and relevant that I wanted to
share it with our staff. Being resilient to
pressure these days is so important in our lives that I thought it would
be helpful to our staff from a personal and business perspective. We
offered it to our staff on a voluntary basis and we were surprised to
see that all of them turned up to your presentation. It
was a lot of fun, great team building, and we have had lots of positive
feed back from many of our staff. In particular, you ideas on mentally
toughening up under pressure as well as physically letting go of stress
'hit the nail on the head' with many of the team. Also, you practical
strategies on work-life balance were also very well received. Our
industry is very competitive and your resilience strategies will no
doubt be an asset to enhance our team's working capacity, longevity with
the company, and their quality of life. Michael,
thanks for a top quality presentation with lots of take-home value. I
would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who wants their
team to gain a competitive performance edge."

arrived early for the afternoon event, and took time to mingle with the
team at lunch, getting to know people and learn a little about them as
individuals.He kicked off a very enthusiastic session, and kept the team
moving and engaged with brainstorming sessions, question/answer
sessions, and physical exercises that were very energising.Michael
personalised the session to help the team understand what they can do as
individuals to manage stress and generate positive outcomes for
themselves personally and professionally. The
feedback from the team was overwhelmingly favourable - and employees
said it was the single best team event they have had in the past several
years.The impact on morale has been very noticeable, and the team is
using the language, tools and attitude Michael shared with us.I highly
recommend Michael for consideration to any work group - his approach is practical and engaging."

"Excellent Session. Thank-you. Also, it was great to have participation in the session as you are able to absorb more of what we learnt. Great way of learning!"
Licenblat was recommended to me by a colleague who had attended one of
his seminars. When I made initial contact with Michael, I felt he was
very approachable and enthusiastic. He listened to our requirements and
sent through a detailed program proposal promptly. The program was
tailor made for our diverse group which was a challenge within itself. Michael
sent out a pre seminar questionnaire to staff, so he could further
tailor the seminar to our diverse group. This was an excellent way in
which to introduce himself and the seminar to staff. It provided staff
with an incentive to attend as they knew that the course would touch on
their particular issues. Michael introduced
himself and mingled with staff prior to the seminar and then during
lunch. I felt this approach worked well as it gave staff a feeling that
he was not just another presenter here to talk to them, but a friendly
face. The feedback from staff has been very
positive. Such feedback included "the way he was able to include his
audience in discussion and active participation made the session
worthwhile" and "Michael was a very entertaining and energetic
presenter". I highly recommend Michael Licenblat."

accounting profession generates high levels of stress and that means
that our team is always under some performance pressure to keep
producing quality of work and to service the needs of our clients.Your

practical strategies on work-life balance and personal maintenance were
also very well received.Thanks you for an entertaining and enjoyable

building resilience in families and children by explaining how to build
resilience within ourselves so we can be more available and present with

my role as Administration Manager of one of the Higher Education
Schools at the University I recently attended a 7 week seminar conducted
by Michael Licenblat, of Positive Performance Solutions P/L. In an
industry that is very demanding of its staff in all areas and expects
quality, discipline innovation and customer service, maintaining energy
levels and giving positive performance is paramount. I
found the seminar gave me simple methods to maintain my energy levels,
increase my enthusiasm and be able to work in a more positive and
productive manner. I was also able to transfer my skills to my staff and
lift morale and performance in doing so. I recommend Michael and
Positive Performance Solution P/L to any industry that is looking to
lift morale and maintain positive and staff who love to come to work."

is an organisation that requires its staff to be focused, productive
and ultimately happy. Last year we found there were times which were
challenging for individual staff members.Leadtec recognised that staff
needed to be rewarded in a way that improves them as an employee and as a
person. We approached Performance Solutions to
conduct the 'How to become resilient to pressure at work' workshop. The
workshop was carried by Michael in relaxed yet professional environment.
Each of the participants took with them real knowledge and skills that
they could use each and every day. I recommend this workshop to any organisation that requires there employees to perform under pressure."
Darren Lutchner, Quality Systems Manager
you so much for talking to our Investornet group last night. It was
well presented, interesting and entertaining. The demonstration of the
punching bag left a good mental picture of what happens if you just keep
taking the punches compared to when you take action to avoid them. I
am sure everyone enjoyed themselves and took some different points of
view away with them regarding the notion of "managing stress." The
"SOLVE" circle was also a slightly different view on the usual theme,
and one I am going to take on board, as I am sure many others will too."
