"Michelle is one of the world's leaders in designing and implementing positive psychology interventions to workplaces." Manuela Schmid

“Without ever making me feel stupid, Michelle’s training challenged my beliefs, showed me what I was capable of and helped me to make significant changes in my life. As a result, I got the promotion I longed for, lost weight and became a better colleague, wife and step-mother. I’m so happy Michelle came into my life.”

Why Should You Listen to Me?

My name is Michelle McQuaid, and these days I’m a best-selling author, workplace wellbeing teacher and playful change activator. I help people find the confidence, energy and happiness to consistently thrive.

But my life wasn’t always like this. Back in 2007, despite living in New York with my beautiful family, working in a job that paid me more money than I could spend, and being in good health… each day it was becoming harder and harder to find the energy to drag myself into work.

The constant stress to prove myself in a job that had no real sense of purpose was slowly but surely draining away my confidence, my energy and my joy for life. Despite the creeping sense of greyness blanketing my life, I couldn’t just quit my job. I needed the money to support my family, and work at my level was hard to find.

I felt stuck and helpless.

So as I lay there in bed one morning, wondering if perhaps this was just how life is, I couldn’t help but wonder: “If I started truly showing up and shining at what mattered most to me, what might my life and the world around me actually look like?”

A year later, this question led me to a Masters in Applied Positive Psychology, with the field’s founder, Professor Martin Seligman, to discover what science was uncovering about the secrets of human flourishing. What I learned finally made it possible to create the kind of personal and professional success that was beyond my wildest dreams.

Now I’m an honorary fellow at Melbourne University’s Graduate School of Education, and my work has been featured in Forbes, the Harvard Business Review, the Wall Street Journal, Boss Magazine, The Age, and many more.

I know many of you are inspired to develop your strengths at work, and that’s exactly why I’ve created a program to give you the practical tools you need to do just that – and to teach these approaches to others. This program will help show up in the ways that matter … shine in the things that really count … and succeed in the areas you value most.

Introducing The Show Up, Shine and Succeed Program

What I hear again and again from my clients is once they know how to develop their strengths, new opportunities start to open up for them.

As they begin to feel more confident, happier and more energized in their work, they can create the kinds of careers and lives they truly love.

I’ve worked with more than ten thousand people around the world – employees, managers, HR leaders, entrepreneurs and coaches – to create an evidence-based blueprint for developing their strengths and creating lasting success on their terms.

Now I’m offering that blueprint to you through my six-week online training program, Show Up, Shine & Succeed.

Here’s What You’ll Learn in Show Up,   Shine and Succeed

Module 1: discover Your Strengths

Finding Out What You Like to Do and How You Like to Work

Discover your character strengths – how you like to work - using the VIA Survey; and your talents – what you like to do – using the Gallup StrengthsFinder and how you can map them together to uncover your “zone of greatness” in any job.

Most importantly, in this module you’ll learn the secret to using your strengths intelligently, so you don’t underplay or overplay the things you do best. And you’ll learn how to use these strengths assessment tools to help others do the same.

Module 2: Design Your Strengths

Silence Your Doubts and Step Into Your Strengths-Fueled Future

In this module, I’ll give you the simple formula for developing your strengths so you can feel more confident, energized and happy in your work and finally overcome the fears and self-doubt that are holding you back.

Then you’ll get clear on what success looks like for you, and design a simple, evidence-based plan to make your strengths-fueled future a reality.

Module 3: Deliver Your Strengths

The Busy-Proof Way To Create Lasting Change and Cultivate Grit

This module focuses on giving you busy-proof steps for creating lasting changes in your life – including ways to develop your strengths in as little as 11 minutes a day.

You’ll also discover how to cultivate the grit you need for long-term success, and how to bring out the best in anyone you’re working with – yes, even your most challenging colleagues and clients.
