About Michael

“Michael Licenblat is a resilience expert who teaches people how to bounce back from challenges and setbacks – and perform better under pressure. ...”

In the world of business, sales and education, no matter how confident, competent or experienced you are – pressure is a part of every process. How well you handle those challenges, changes, and problems will often determine how successful you are going be.

Michael Licenblat is a resilience expert who teaches people how to bounce back from challenges and setbacks – and perform better under pressure.

Born into a family of entrepreneurial parents, Michael grew up working inside the numerous family businesses – from clothing stores, to supermarkets, and pizza restaurant. Whilst other 10 year olds went to the football on Saturday, Michael grew up on the Queen Victoria market, helping his Dad unpack the truck, serve customers, and balance the till, and quickly learnt that success often came to those who could ride the bumps, get up, and keep going.

Michael went on to run his own businesses in natural health care. He got started by going door to door and handing out flyers, which resulted in building one of the few successful full time Shiatsu health care practices in Victoria.

Over the past 10 years, Michael has dedicated himself to teaching the principles of resilience to people in business and sales.? Drawing on his background in Psychology, Shiatsu therapy, and over 25 years of Martial Arts experience, Michael has helped countless companies become ‘pressure proof’ and learn how to bounce back from the setbacks and challenges so they can out perform their competition.

In Michael’s high energy, interactive and very practical presentations, he demystifies what people need to do to become resilient to pressure in today’s business world, and keep a clear head when dealing with difficult, demanding and stressful situations – without burning yourself out.

In Michael’s programs, attendees will learn:

– The 7 common pitfalls that stops professionals from being effective and productive

– How to get over setbacks and rejections quickly and turn them into opportunities

– How to stay proactive even when you are feeling flat and defeated.

– Become emotionally immune to draining clients, customers and colleagues

– How to increase their working stamina when working for hours without a break

– How to maintain confidence, optimism and enthusiasm when faced with setbacks or challenges

Michael is the author of the book ‘Pressure Proof – How to Thrive in Times of Disruption, Change and Pressure’, his articles are regularly published in several journals, and has delivered presentations to organizations such as Toyota, REIV, Smartline Mortgage Group, MLC Insurance, St George, Coles Myer Ltd., Pitcher Partners, SEEK, Caterpillar, Maurice Blackburn, Maunsell, SalesForce, and Victorian Parliament.

What people say about Michael

Michael Licenblat was an outstanding presenter and his format was both informative and interactive so the time went very quickly. I found the session positive and rewarding; the concepts he covered and the breadth of experience he drew on resonated with men and women alike, from my observation, more so because they were real situations drawn from his life. As his training is very soundly based in both his academic and broader professional training his genuine commitment to the concepts he espoused was obvious.

You may be interested to know that we had a nurse meeting today and the nurses said that they are using your training tips in the course of their triage phone calls to great effect. As we know, many people attend training and the learnings disappear after a while and people can slide back to old habits. I think it is a great testimony to the efficacy of your session as it has formed part of their work practices and still does.

– Deidre Rennick, Management Business Development West Vic Division of General Practice

We usually only have speakers from within the real estate industry speak at our events, however the choice to bring in Michael Licenblat, an external speaker, has proven to be an excellent choice. Michael quickly engaged our group and showed that he understood our industry. Michael’s resilience presentation was both entertaining and hands on, giving our property management teams some practical communication tips, and self management tools, that will add great value to their relationships with their clients. I look forward to working with Michael again.

– Nick Dowling, CEO, The Jellis Craig Group

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your professionalism and excellence in the delivery of the workshops to our consultants on “How to deal with negative and difficult people – without becoming drained”. The feedback from the session has been extremely positive. You provided a ‘toolbox’ for our people on both a personal and professional basis so that they are able to tackle each and every appointment with a clear mind, and you provided practical tips on how to handle a work-life balance. Most interesting was the segment about reading and understanding pressure profiles. This segment has motivated our consultants to think about our internal and external relationships and why they, and the people they work with, react to pressure situations in different ways.
