Michelle McCormack
I work with leaders and their teams to have more great conversations, to build strong working relationships that deliver results. My mission is to unlock the potential in each person, developing your leadership to make a difference and have impact.

As the Founder and Director of People Focus, a boutique consulting company, I work across New Zealand and the South Pacific facilitating:

  • strategy and business planning workshops, 
  • team days, 
  • focus groups, 
  • meetings, 
  • leadership development programmes and events.

People Focus works to bridge the gap between knowledge and action, providing practical tools, frameworks and skills for everyday use – coaching leaders and teams to take action, to follow through, to measure the impact and results.

Current programmes include:

  • Have more Great Conversations – Conversational Intelligence ®
  • Inside Out; Leading the Way – 360-degree leadership
  • Advisory Leadership – Influence without authority
  • Pacific Leadership Programme – Improve border security
  • Pacific Fisheries Leadership Programme.

With a 25-year career as an entrepreneur, manager, and leader my approach is practical and commercial - doing business with a people focus.

I'm known for my practical connective approach, combined with an energetic and engaging style. I am quick to understand context and situations by asking insightful questions and listening carefully to the answers. I can see the potential in any situation and will partner with you to realise that potential, building a long-term enduring relationship.

I am an International Certified Facilitator ™ and a Certified Coach in Emotional Intelligence and Conversational Intelligence ®. I have a Bachelor of Business Studies from Massey University and a Certificate in Psychology.
