"Michelle was very supportive of me when I spoke at the AZ Authors Association and was even more generous when she volunteered her valuable time to speak for my Scottsdale Society of Women Writers - I know she gives of her time with "paying forward" in mind and it has paid off for her. Michelle serves her community and her clients well." Patricia L. Brooks, President, Scottsdale Society of Women Writers

Coaching moves you!

Stylized coffee cup with energy sparks Just add coaching . . .

Re-discover yourself through coaching--Bring optimism back to your perspectives—fresh career opportunities, refresh relationships, create freedom, become an entrepreneur.  Ask me about the Personal Strategic Life Plan (PSLP) and added resources.

That's my coaching premise. I know there is an easier way to be fulfilled and excited about your work and your life with purpose and direction. This approach can be provocative and stimulating when people are ready to "fall" forward.

Think of our coaching work together as a flashlight shining light on what you already know viscerally but are often fearful of expressing it for a myriad of reasons. Let's expose them and get rid of them.

Frustrated? Do you hear that little voice in our head?

"I need someone to listen to me!"

"I need a sounding board!"

Their project is to teach youngsters through SEL (Social Emotional Learning) and a game they've created: "Research now proves that this set of skills not only helps children learn in school, it helps them develop into happier, healthier children all around. It sets them on a path to thrive in every area of their lives. We think it leads to a better world and we're doing everything we can to make more parents aware of it."

Business Analysis and Performance Assessment

Likely the singular most powerful tools you will use to masterfully move your voice and message into and above the crowd are your marketing messages. The range from internal and external communications through creative and distribution of your "wares" is highly sensitive and critical if you want to be noticed and perceived as a leader in your industry. From package design, voice mail messages and web site strategy to trade show management, and presentations, our two decades of expertise boost your marketing presence, exposures and positioning.

Please review how we benefit you.

Coaching supports you and tackles job insecurity and smart job creation.

Job Creation and Hiring are the lifeblood of your business.

If your business is not in "thrive" mode, it is in decline. Gravity pushes the status quo backwards.

Tap into what you must know to plow through a sluggish and regressive economy and still emerge ahead and profitable. You cannot afford not to ignore this alert. When was the last time you visited a high school or sat on an education committee? The gaps are enormous between the reality of the workplace and public education. Until education catches up with the workplace especially in the U.S., business will pay the bill for education.

Through coaching we return purpose to work and return people to their business.™

Positive Potentials is the first and only business and executive coaching practice that introduces Business Literacy™ as a coaching tool. As a coaching company, we offer our clients a benefit of personal and career advancement and fulfillment. Beyond the increased performance factor for their companies, clients express how they enjoy more personal freedom, less stress and clarity of thought built on a values foundation they can apply to any circumstance that appears.

Team hands in.

My work with entrepreneurs shows 65% jumping over the cliff without a written business plan. Worse yet, if they have a blueprint "napkin strategy," (I know Southwest Airlines did well with that) there is no strategic MARKETING PLAN to drive the commercial engine and no benchmarks for success. It is no surprise that everyone is more productive when the direction is clearly stated.

Positive Potentials' emotional intelligence business training closes the gap for you.

Consulting & Facilitation

"Our consulting work with the City of Phoenix and entrepreneurial companies nationwide has produced useful research that we can share and apply to your company." Michelle Cubas

Boards of Directors require special attention. 

Non-Profit boards have different goals and intentions than for-profit ones. Leaders are essential to set the pace, the board energy and the stimulate performance.

Board room conference set u p

Collaborative solution-finding is a skill I call, The Art of Governance. This model touches all board members, recruiting tactics and succession planning. Although members are experts in their fields, they are often unaccustomed to the collaborative and sharing aspects of board work—They may be used to keeping ideas to themselves and may not be comfortable sharing and asking questions as they may be viewed as weak by not having all the answers.

Our top-tier development includes the following focus:

• Leadership assessments, models and communication styles

• Fundraising ideas and planning

• Committee and Membership Development

• Strategic Planning sessions and review

Often connected to marketing communications, our small business marketing services are tailored to the best ways to promote your messages—to internal and external audiences.

Multi-generational and multi-cultural issues have changed the landscape, too. Our strategies slice through the confusion of how to handle these sensitive issues and reduce conflict and waste.

Marketing Services require constant sharpening for the small business, business unit or division:

-Marketing Communications—Internal and External Audience Implementation Strategies

-Advertising-Public Relations and Media Management

-Social Media and Networking-Sales Material Development

-Affiliate and Dealer support

-Intellectual Property Management and Company Publishing.


Organizational Development/Specialized Training Content

Companies waste $$$billions of dollars annually on training. How about yours? Curious? WHY?

Found out yet how coaching saves you money?

Training is no longer a trend, it's a cost of doing business.

Positive Potentials' business training closes that gap for you.

• Pivotal Thinking/The New Strategic Performance Set

Enjoy the impact and results of a sharp, attentive team once they are exposed to Pivotal Thinking tactics. More than Covey's "sharpening the saw," Pivotal Thinking is a new mental way to "wire" your projects and how to allocate resources. These tested methods overcome the training gap. Consider that two generations have lost the art of "common sense." Pivotal Thinking brings it back into style.

• Emotional Intelligence (EI)/Assessment & Training

This is the crystal ball companies and organizations have been seeking. It is a definitive measure of success on a career path as well as performance development.

Little results to show for your efforts?

• Diversity & Company Culture Development

Multi-cultural, multi-generational and gender bias are easily understood and reduce possible conflict sources through a Positive Potentials' tools. Improve operational flow and inter-department communications with Positive Potentials on your team. Reduce conflict and exposure to legal issues when you understand the fabric of your company's culture.

Diverse business people

• Women's Entrepreneurial Training Sessions

Women see the world differently than men. From powerful corporate executives to Mompreneurs, women have different issues to manage than male counterparts. Bring the joy of equilibrium to your 24 hours with supportive and visionary coaching. Women have started "cottage" industries for millennia. Now they can benefit and create business wisdom, too.

Women sharing ideas

Recent research shows that investment money in micro loans to women

in developing countries produces a higher return

on pay-back and business creation than men.

Why do you suppose that is?
