Megumi Miki helps organisations flourish by enabling people to bring their strength and passion to work.

"Most people die with their music locked up inside them." Benjamin Disraeli

 

After attending an innovative culture change program in 2001, Megumi realised she had to put aside a successful career in finance and strategy at ANZ in order to truly make a difference. This life-changing moment convinced her that she needed to unlock the music locked up inside, and help others to do the same.

 

Megumi started the Quietly Powerful movement in August 2016 to help quieter professionals succeed on their own terms and expand the definition of what good leadership looks like. As a quieter professional herself and as a leadership and culture consultant, she feels it is time to update our beliefs about what effective leadership looks like.

 

As a Leadership Consultant, Megumi brings together her 20 years’ experience and practical knowledge of business strategy, finance, leadership, organisational development and culture change. She also draws on a network of experienced associates to deliver high impact services to organisations.

 

Close the ‘knowing/doing gap’

While many people know what is needed to realise their own and others’ potential, few have reinforced the knowledge to bring change into everyday action. With Megumi’s programs, behaviour change principles are embedded into every exercise, workshop, and assessment.

 

Research and background

Quietly Powerful builds on various work on introversion and quiet leadership by authors such as Susan Cain's Quiet, Laurie Helgoe's Introvert Power and David Rock's Quiet Leadership, Megumi's own reserach into Quietly Powerful Leadership, as well as theories on self-efficacy, power and rank, personality traits, developmental models from process oriented psychology.

 

The Inspire to Outperform program draws upon a number of theories and principles in its approach, including coaching principles and process-oriented psychology. Daniel Goleman’s Leadership That Gets Results observes that the ‘coaching style of leadership’ is currently under-utilised. Multipliers by Liz Wiseman encourages leaders to multiply, not diminish team intelligence and capability.
