I attended one of Magdalena’s Irish workshops through the Association of Coaching. What an inspiring yet practical speaker! She used neuroscience to support her strategies on being productive and fully engaged the audience throughout the session. I bought her book “Get Productive” and have used many of the tools and techniques for my own personal development as well as recommending it to clients. One of the best ‘productivity’ books that I have come across in along time. Thank you.
Magdalena was our chosen speaker for an Association for Coaching evening speaker series – the session was an opportunity to create discussion and debate from coaches on her ‘Get Productive Wheel’. She has a captivating and gentle style which draws people in and invites them to experiment and be creative. The feedback was excellent and people wanted more. I’d definitely recommend her as a speaker and plan to follow the development of her work.
Magdalena spoke recently at the Portsmouth Hospitals Research Conference. As a GP, it was inspiring to hear of successful strategies to reflect and effectively manage an ever demanding workload with multiple roles. As a result i am considering how Magdalena’s techniques could help in my own career development and day-to-day survival, as well as how she could help support our practice/businesses to thrive in an increasingly difficult environment.
Magdalena ran a parallel workshop at the recent Staff Developers Conference 2015 on Tapping Hearts and Minds to Enable People to Thrive in a VUCA World. She introduced us to her 4 step coaching approach. Even in a very short time is made us pause and recognise what we could do differently. I always find Magdalena interesting and inspiring to listen to – she has a knack of making me think very differently to the way I do normally. Never a bad thing!
I recently attended coaching skills masterclass training day by Magdalena, hosted by the Association for Coaching. It was an exceptional day. Magdalena has a very special presence in the room, being able to offer a true fusion of heart and mind. Her knowledge and experience of applying the neuroscience with coaching is brilliant. I have come away equipped with a range of new strategies to apply to my own personal development as well as use in my practice with clients. This training day combined with the books have opened up new dialogue for me. I have been able to move through a number of blocks as a result of this day. If you get the opportunity to hear her speak, or work with her, grab it with both hands and be very excited!
I recently attended an event lead by Magdalena for HR leaders in London organised by the CIPD. I was most impressed with her approach to personal development and the neuroscience element was covered perfectly for the non- expert and made fascinating. I thoroughly enjoyed this event (I missed my tube stop on the way home as I was distracted reading her book) and would recommend anyone to search out Magdalena out and invest some time listening to her.
I recently attended an event where Magdalena presented on “everyone can be brilliant.” Her presentation was thought provoking and I connected with the content particularly about aligning hearts and minds and the research she presents on the impacts of the nervous system to being your best. Would thoroughly recommend.
I recently attended a brilliant masterclass delivered by Magdalena. The masterclass focused on her grid method, which helps promote work/life balance and overall wellbeing and empowerment. To say I came away absolutely blown away is an understatement. This is a must-attend masterclass for anyone interested in improving wellbeing and productivity – their own and/or those of their clients. I’m already using the method and can feel the benefits of increased focus and energy – as well as identifying areas I’m neglecting and need to work on. More than the above, what made this a different masterclass was Magdalena’s style. She’s incredibly warm, passionate about her subject, has a wealth of knowledge and great sense of fun. In short, an inspiration. If you ever get an opportunity to attend one of her workshops do not delay. Get yourself booked on. It’ll be the best investment you make.
I attended Dr Magdalena Bak-Maier’s, The Grid Empowerment Model as part of British Psychological Society Masterclass CPD series. It was absolutely fantastic. It’s a beautiful blend of science & simple yet profound tools, for immediate applications. I would whole heartedly recommend this to anyone, practitioner or as a personal development tool.
I attended an integration workshop led by Magdalena at the AICTP (Association of Integrative Coach Therapist Professionals) conference in January 2018. The whole workshop was incredibly moving and inspiring and reminded me of the importance of paying attention to all parts of ourselves to feel truly integrated. Not only did I benefit, but so did my fellow workshop attendees, and I have since used the exercises with several of my clients – with profound effects.
