Are you a coach, therapist, leader, manager, or trainer who’d like to make more of an impact with your clients, customers, or staff?

Would you like to be more of a “difference maker” with friends, family, or in the world?

If this is you, I am delighted to announce the first ever Genius Catalyst Certification program beginning live and live-streaming from New York City in September, London in November, and Los Angeles in February of 2023. Each of the four catalyst intensives will be led by me, and will include multiple opportunities to learn how lasting change actually happens, watch me work with others in real time, and put your own understanding to the test as we go.

If you have ever wanted to be able to make a real and tangible difference in the lives of others regardless of whether or not you want to make your living as a helping professional, I’ve created this program with you in mind.

What is a Catalyst?

The dictionary definition of a catalyst is “an agent that provokes or speeds significant change or action”.  During our six months together, you’ll learn to act as a catalyst to people’s innate genius, wisdom, and creativity, so they can bring their best self to any problem, challenge, or project. 

 

Here’s a quick video where I talk about what it means to be a catalyst within your profession, whether you are a coach, manager, therapist, leader, or any other type of helping professional:

There are three ways for you to participate in this six month learning adventure – as a professional certification, as a six month non-certification training, or “a la carte”, where you can take part in any or all of the four intensives individually.

Here’s a bit more about what’s on offer..

THE PERSONAL CATALYST INTENSIVE

Live and live-streaming in New York City
September 16th – 18th (open to all)
September 19th (certification track only)

The sociologist Joseph Campbell famously said:
People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonance within our innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.”

 

We’ll begin our time together with the spotlight firmly on ourselves – our own ability to harmonize our life experiences with our innermost being and actually “feel the rapture of being alive”. This is both important in its own right and the key to our ability to impact and awaken others .
Here’s just some of what we’ll be exploring:
  • The principles behind the inside-out understanding – where people’s experience of life really comes from (and why recognizing that fact really matters)
  • Bringing your genius to life – the amazing capacity of the mind for insight, creativity, and guidance
  • The power of insight, wonder, and the world of deeper feeling
  • How to reliably spark your own felt sense of aliveness, experience personal breakthroughs, and create lasting change

Michael Neill’s training program is exquisite.

I had originally been interested in the course to be able to help my existing clients more fully and with more depth. As a chiropractor with two busy practices, I was teaching and coaching every day without much training in actual professional coaching.

I found myself changing and transforming as my depth of understanding in the inside out way of living and being grew. My practice members began having new insights into their lives and became empowered themselves. I also started seeing profound physical changes in them as they found new insights into life.

About halfway through the course, I realized that I’d fallen in love with the art of coaching itself. And I’d fallen in love with the possibilities for my business in exploring this new art form.

My passion for what I am creating in the world is invigorated and enlivened.

Also as a nice side effect that seemed to happen all by itself, this past year was my highest ever year for both gross and net income in 22 years of practice. :)

More deeply help others, rekindle passion and make more money!

THE SPIRITUAL CATALYST INTENSIVE

Live and live-streaming in London, UK
November 4th – 6th (open to all)
November 7th (certification track only)

The physicist David Bohm wrote:

“The field of the finite is all that we can see, hear, touch, remember, and describe. This field is basically that which is manifest, or tangible. The essential quality of the infinite, by contrast, is its subtlety, its intangibility. This quality is conveyed in the word spirit, whose root meaning is “wind, or breath.” This suggests an invisible but pervasive energy, to which the manifest world of the finite responds. This energy, or spirit, infuses all living beings, and without it any organism must fall apart into its constituent elements. That which is truly alive in the living being is this energy of spirit, and this is never born and never dies.”

At the heart of this exploration is one simple truth: there is no substitute for being fully present with another human being. During the Spiritual Catalyst Intensive, we’ll work together to be able to recognize the spark of spirit in others and make use of some basic tools to fan the flames of presence and aliveness in their lives.

Over the course of our time together, we’ll be exploring:

  • Deep listening, connection, and trust
  • Transformative presence – having more of an impact by being more of who you really are
  • How relationship and context make impact more or less likely to occur
  • Working in the space where humanity and divinity collide

What a wonderful 6 months this have been. I love the magic that happens within each of the 4 intense days. What I’ve seen new and fresh is beyond words. Even if I wouldn’t understand a single word – I’m in “the feeling.” A feeling beyond words. A mixture of love, contentment, peace, joy… the most beautiful feeling.

I can’t describe it, but there’s something in the feeling when you’re together with a bunch of people, looking towards Truth. It’s magic. You can feel the love in the room.

I saw myself in everyone’s sharing or question. It’s been relevant. Even though I’ve experienced it several times, it still amazes me.

I learned a lot. Saw through some of my expectations (… and I thought I didn’t have any for this program.😂)

And I really appreciate the ongoing support via masterclasses with teachers, you don’t want to stop talking.

Thank you, Michael and everyone for this experience. I’m full to the brim of gratitude.

If you want to “see more”, deepen your understanding in the Three Principles, or just have a wonderful time – this is for you.

THE CLIENT CATALYST INTENSIVE

Live-streaming only
December 2nd – 4th (open to all)

The early 20th century motivational teacher William Arthur Ward said:

“The mediocre teacher tells.
The good teacher explains.
The superior teacher demonstrates.
The great teacher inspires.”

Over the course of these three live-streaming days, you’ll get the chance to watch me work with a brand-new client in my office, following along from our first meeting to the conclusion of our one on one intensive. In between our sessions, you’ll get the chance to ask me questions and put what you’re learning into action as you spark one another in small group sessions.

 

Here’s a link to the “moment of truth” on the very first filmed client intensive I ever shared. As you watch, see if you can spot the moment the clouds of thinking parted and the spark of aliveness began coming through…

Prior to meeting Michael, I’d only believed changes could be made incrementally. They’d have to be specific to one area at a time and placed on a self-created timetable to most accurately measure the quality of the change. Michael’s ability to connect and his understanding of the human experience as a coach was unparalleled to anything I’d ever seen before. It was as if he knew exactly where to point or that he knew precisely which thread to pull to unravel the wisdom, resilience, creativity and peace he knew existed inside me. Simply put, Michael didn’t just change my life: he transformed it. Words could never convey my appreciation adequately. For that transformation, I am deeply humbled and grateful.

As a business owner and someone who has felt the principles in action, I participated in this program to discover more about transformative coaching. I really saw how the program offered me insight into what I would call “the ultimate coaching tool”, ie, the truths that underlie human existence that are readily available to act from and point towards in order to help your clients to enjoy their life experience more. 

Bigger than that however, is the understanding that we all have access to these truths and we can all enjoy our life experience more, & immediately so, as a result. They offer a stable foundation to live from, allowing for both a deeper perspective and an expanded view of life. 

The format of the program was perfect. There was a good mix of learning from Michael, as well as other extremely inspiring guest contributors, combined with breakout small group exercises and plenty of time to reflect, either in your own time, or with Michael in a group follow up.

I enjoyed intellectually many fascinating conversations, but it was the depth of feeling that percolated over time where the magic really happened for me. It felt a privilege to have learned so much, but also to gain hope for all of humanity, where deeper human connection and a sense that everyone could just be themselves, with so much less pressure, is an available reality.

I will certainly use everything I have gained to help plant seeds of this understanding, because I believe that this will be of great comfort to others. For me personally, the understanding explains some of my own life experiences, and the deeper knowing that came from them. 

Thank you so much to the entire team for a wonderful experience, so well executed, but in a welcoming and truly accessible manner.

THE LIFE CATALYST INTENSIVE

Live and live-streaming in Los Angeles
February 3rd – 5th, 2023 (open to all)
February 6th – 7th, 2023 (certification track only)
The Reverend Howard Thurman, a student of Gandhi and teacher of Martin Luther King, once wrote:
“Don’t ask what the world needs – ask what makes you come alive and go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

 

In a world of ever-increasing volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA), the ability to be a safe port in a storm is worth its weight in gold. Once you can reliably help people wake up to the deepest and best they have inside them, the next job is to help them navigate their world with more ease and grace. As we come together for one final time in February, we’ll be playing with real-world applications of this understanding and approach, including:  

     

    • Being a business catalyst– what it takes to move a business from surviving to thriving, including your own
    • Being a creativity catalyst – unleashing innovation and creative solutions “on demand”
    • Being a health catalyst – sparking the body’s innate drive towards health and optimizing conditions for healing
    • Being a relationship catalyst – uncovering and nurturing the spark of love and understanding in the relationships that matter most

    If you have any interest in living your life with a whole lot more vision, possibility, fearlessness, ease and joy, Michael is your man.

    One of the wonderful things about connecting with Michael is that he is always himself in that what you get with the genius is of course, his particular expression of it which is filled with humor, humility, and great storytelling.

    He takes you to the heights and the depths of what is beautiful and true in a way that is engagingly human, real, fun, and yes… greatly transformative. It’s quite the package. I highly recommend hopping onto the Michael Neill train. It’s an amazing ride that will serve you for a lifetime in extraordinary ways.

    What our students have to say about training with Michael

    FAQ

    All your questions – answered :-)

    What are the certification requirements?

    To be eligible for certification, you will need to:

     

    • Attend all of the intensives live, either in person or via live stream
    • Attend at least 75% of the twice monthly small group practicum sessions
    • Complete on-going faculty and peer review feedback sessions

    HOW MANY PLACES ARE AVAILABLE ON THE PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATION TRACK?

    To ensure quality and personal attention, there will be a maximum of 50 places available for professional certification. You will have a guaranteed in person place available on each of the live intensives; we request that you let us know as soon as possible if you will be attending any of them virtually instead!

    What is the small group practicum?

    Every two weeks or so, participants in the professional certification track will meet in a small group with Michael and/or members of the Genius Catalyst faculty and be put “on the spot” with specific tasks designed to take your impact to the next level. Those tasks will be custom-created for each small group, and while that means we can’t (and wouldn’t ;-) tell you exactly what they’ll entail, they could range from facilitating discussions to giving short talks to working with someone one on one in front of the group.

    Where are the intensives being held?

    We are finalising the venues for each intensive at the moment depending on the number of in-person places requested, but if you want to book your accommodation early, the venues we are currently looking at are in Manhattan for September, central London for November, and Santa Monica next February.  We will confirm the venues and send all the final details by mid-July.  

    What is the cancellation/refund policy?

    If you need to cancel for any reason up to 30 days before the start date (i.e. by the 15th of August), you will receive a full refund.  If you need to cancel for any reason after the 15th of August, you will receive a credit for the full amount paid to be used for other trainings and programs at any time in the future.

    What are the timings for the intensives?

    The live intensive will run from 10am-5pm local time.  Please note that if you are joining via live stream, this might mean a very late or very early start time ;-) 

    Will everything be recorded?

    Yes!  You will have lifetime access to the streaming video and audio for all the intensives.  The audio from the masterclass and small group practicum will also be available for streaming or download by all registered participants in the relevant track.

    HOW DOES THE "PRIORITY IN PERSON PLACE" WORK FOR THE CATALYST TRACK?

    When you book on The Catalyst Track you will be presented with the options for participation on each intensive: Priority In Person or Live Stream. Once you’ve chosen your preferred options, in person places will be given out for each live event as available one month in advance and in order of your date of enrollment. The sooner you book, the more likely you will be able to attend each intensive in person!

    CAN I STILL ATTEND IN PERSON IF I'M ONLY ATTENDING ONE OR TWO OF THE INTENSIVES "A LA CARTE"?

    When you book on any of the individual intensives, you will be presented with two options: In Person Preferred or Live Stream only. please choose your preferred option.  In person places for each intensive will be given out one month in advance and in order of your date of enrollment. The sooner you book, the more likely you will be able to attend your chosen intensive(s) in person!

    In my first 4 day intensive, it didn’t take long for me to see that the magic is not in the learning but rather in the ‘unlearning’. The fun part of it is that there really was nothing to DO to make that happen.

    This program is packed with small group exercises that allow for insight to come naturally and Michael creates a safe space to ask questions and has a way of deepening the understanding even more in the way he’s answering them. After finishing the program, I feel really comfortable putting myself out there as a transformative professional and somehow clients have magically been showing up.

    This truly was a life changing experience that I strongly recommend.

    Annelies Geraets

    Even though I decided not to continue with my coaching practice for the moment, this course was and will be (when watching it again) a very insightful, loving, and inspiring conversation. It is especially cool to meet and be with other people on a similar journey (to mastery) and at the same time listen to Michael’s wisdom and experience. I/we are so good in overcomplicating things while Michael kept pointing us back to a simple “3-step plan”:

    1. Show Up
    2. Be Yourself
    3. See What Happens

    In the end the answer will probably always be simpler than we think. So if you want to feel (more) confident and playful going forwards working with others, I would highly recommend you to go on this journey with Michael and the others!
