MM&Amp;A work with individuals in a structured Self-Leaderhip Program to better understand and manage one-self for the best possible chance of attaining success in life.


MM&A's Self Leadership Programme aims to provide individuals with the necessary self-awareness and self-management skills to express themselves effectively in challenging environments so that they can attain success in all spheres of their lives. The programme is available to corporate groups as a stand-alone course or as part of a longer 3-module Advanced Leadership Development journey; or to individuals via a specially structured coaching process.

Please see the corporate self-leadership programme outlined below. MM&A also offers various guided and self-help tools for individuals, which can assist individuals on a stand-alone basis, or be incorporated into an agreed programme as required: Individual Coaching; Enneagram Analysis for unparalleled insight into personality, motivation & self-limiting beliefs, to enable accelerated development; Self-Leadership for Success (e-book version of Marichen's published book); Stress-reducing Guided Meditations (audio download); Empowering Guided Breathwork Videos and we can even include an outdoor equine-assisted leadership awareness experience.

Apart from the various MM&A programmes and tools to help with the self-leadership journey, Marichen also works with the relevant tools used (and provided) by the organisation.

"The Self-leadership for Success is definitely the most effective and inspiring leadership course I have ever had the pleasure to attend, and there has been many over the past 21 years in the corporate environment. Working with horses gives you a whole new outlook on all the principals of leadership and the lessons learned are so much more vivid and meaningful. Being back at the office my team and I remind each other daily of something we learned and we motivate each other to achieve all the goals we set for ourselves during the course. The course also brought us much closer together as a team and we have new found respect and understanding for each other. This is a definite for all leaders and a great investment. Marichen and the rest of her team are passionate and fun and like no trainers we experienced before. Well done on an amazing successful concept." - Monika Roode, National Manager, Sage
