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 event – 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.
I recently attended 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 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.
Thank you very much for your presentation on the use of coaching as a means of helping people affected by stress in their work which you gave to the Spring meeting of the Society of Occupational Medicine, London Group.You presentation provided members with helpful insights into the coaching process and how this can be used to help someone understand the causes of their stress and their coping mechanisms for dealing with stress. As well as improving our understanding of a job coach’s role, you provided us with some useful tools we can use in our own practice.
Even some of my most cynical colleagues expressed appreciation of your presentation. No mean achievement!
Have you ever sat and listened to a presenter and wished that they would just keep on talking and opening up your mind to fascinating stuff which is not only backed up by research, but also highly practical in its application to your 1:1 and group coaching? It doesn’t happen very often, in my experience. Magdalena had over 80 of us buzzing with enthusiasm and curiosity to find out more…and she gave us more, and more, and even more than we could have dreamt of! Thank you, Magdalena Bak-Maier, for your generosity and skill in conveying a hugely valuable tool to help us coaches to fast-track our clients towards their dreams and goals. And congratulations on getting such great reviews on our event evaluation forms.
Magdalena has provided incredible benefit to the social entrepreneurs she has worked with through us. Both as a coach, and as a leader of a session, her disarming manner and warm approach very quickly allow the people she works with to feel an impact from her work. Her insights and experience are immediately apparent, and we have been extremely lucky to be able to work with her.
