A business is only as good as its people
People are at their best when they are engaged which is why employee engagement is crucial for a successful business. If people are engaged, they are happy to work at their best and business thrives, productivity increases, customers are more satisfied and this has an impact on the bottom line.
Yet how many business leaders understand how to engage their employees? What will it take to power employee engagement and ensure that your workforce is working to achieve your business goals as though they were their own?
This is the key to attracting and retaining the best talent especially in a market place where people are looking to work in an organization they can relate and commit to.

What others are saying
“Mikela is a unique force of nature. She has excellent communication skills, which she uses to rapidly identify solutions and opportunities from a myriad of problem situations that we presented her with. She is very effective at convincing an audience to adopt her way of thinking and she is not scared to voice an unpopular opinion. I have personally found her to be an invaluable source of guidance on all HR matters, and she is a superb personal and team coach.”
"There’s absolutely no doubt that my manager has come on tremendously since you started coaching him. I have lost count how many times he has been singled out for his contribution over the last few months. We are benefitting enormously from his insight, clarity and willingness to speak up. I have no doubt that you have given 100% to the work, as you always do, and it shows. Thank you."
Robert, Chairman UK Charity
“Even though I didn’t know Mikela for too long, I immediately noticed certain traits: integrity, fairness, passion and decisiveness. I immediately felt comfortable discussing issues with her and trusted her judgement and feedback. As a result of her coaching I was able to see things clearly, hone in on the major relevant issues and decide on a way forward.”
Siena, Sales Manager
"I am extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to participate in a coaching programme with Mikela. The sessions that Mikela designed were tailored to my specific requirements and successfully addressed my objectives. Overall the programme had a significant impact on my communication skills and my approach to strategic thinking in a very short period of time. The support I received from Mikela was invaluable."

Join the Dots – Invitation to join a journey
20 years ago we were graduating from the College of Europe, swelling with pride that we had pulled through a very challenging year and excited to see what life held beyond the college walls. We are now in our 40s and all at different stages in life yet carrying the experiences that we have had over the past two decades. Our joys, our sorrows, successes and failures have all contributed to making us who we are today.
Living life upstream
My late father was never a risk taker. He never had great ambitions to set up his own company. When I asked, he would give me the same answer ‘when I lie down on my pillow at night, I want to sleep soundly’ always implying that owning one’s business is tantamount to restless nights.
My TEDx Talk
Imagine being in a shopping mall bustling with people when all of a sudden, your toddler bursts into a hysteric tantrum. A crowd circles around you to follow the spectacle. What's the 'normal' reaction expected in those circumstances?
The Topic of my talk? "The 'Like' Generation". In this TEDx Talk I explore how most of our interactions, both online and offline are now spurred by the constant desire for self-validation.
