Workshops for Health & Community Professionals
Michelle delivers a range of in-house and public programs specifically designed to build capacity and empower the professional workforce to meet the ever-increasing challenges of the health and community sector.
COVID-19 Update: Adjusting and adapting is the name of the game right now so we’re working to shift all training programs to online delivery, via live stream.
The training will be delivered in half days, rather than full day programs.
Feedback for our online programs has been excellent;
I am thoroughly enjoying the training thus far and am very impressed at how easily it is flowing on the online platform. Well done to you and your team for organising this so well!

12 MONTH 'EMBED THE LEARNING' PROGRAMS!
Michelle has developed an 'embed the learning' program for 3 of her signature training programs: Supervision, Leadership and Resilience. Michelle is aware that when participants leave a workshop, it can be a challenge to keep the learning, front of mind.
The program includes 25 emails sent fortnightly over a 12 month period, that highlight 25 key principles, frameworks and messages directly from the training. It ensures that participants are regularly reminded of the key learnings from the training, in short bite sized ways. Participants would sign up individually and the program is strictly available for participants of this training only.
The 'embed the learning' program comes at no additional cost to the participants, as Michelle is highly committed to integration of participants’ skills, knowledge and workforce capacity.
How well do you lead yourself?
We all look for exceptional leadership externally, but forget to be the best leaders to ourselves.
Most of us have never been given a clear approach to lead ourselves well, or had role models that demonstrate inspiring self-leadership.
That’s why it’s important to take the time to build the necessary frameworks and skills for strong self-leadership and become a more empowered professional.
Michelle Bihary leads this powerful, practical and engaging program to help you drive your career more confidently by bringing together her wisdom of more than 30 years experience in mental health, neuroscience, emotional intelligence, positive psychology, resilience, coaching, mentoring and leadership.
Surrounded by like-minded women experiencing similar challenges in the disrupted healthcare context, this immersive workshop also provides workbooks, access to resources as well as a gourmet lunch, morning and afternoon tea.

The ‘emotional wear and tear’ of helping and leadership roles can take a huge toll on our wellbeing, leaving us with little energy for our personal lives. We can become depleted so that our professional work loses its sense of fulfillment. Burnout and compassion fatigue are on the rise amongst health professionals.
This comprehensive program provides a well-deserved chance to reflect on practical ways to deepen resilience and self-care and take team-based strategies back to the workplace.
Michelle draws on the latest research in resilience and wellbeing, neuroplasticity, psychological agility, emotional intelligence, mindfulness, energy management, interpersonal neurobiology and leadership theories. This inspires a renewed and proactive approach to self-care individually. It also explores ways to optimise the wellbeing and resilience of the workforce.
