Are you in the People Game?

In the business of inspiring, coaching and training people to play at their best?

Welcome to

The Art of Extraordinary

Do you find yourself often climbing into the problem box and helping solve the challenges, rather than coaching from the sidelines and teaching people there is a different way?

Ever feel like people are constantly searching for answers and solutions to their problems and not trusting their own resources, skills and capabilities?

Do you frequently find yourself dishing out the "how to - showing and telling people how to do things" when you know deep down the answer isn’t so much in the how, as it is in the why?

Ever watch people sitting on the fence, doubting, uncertain, scared or maybe reluctant, lacking initiative and want to shake them and shout "get off the fence and get in the game"?

Perhaps reluctant yourself or lacking the language to know what to say, to empower them that extra bit to step forward and take action?

Frustrated seeing people struggling with accountability and not taking responsibility for themselves and their actions, as they blame everything else or frequently justify their own actions?

Want to be able to help those people spinning their wheels, going around and around in circles despite their best of intentions?

If you’re responsible for empowering an organisation and/or individuals to thrive, strive and achieve the next level of 'success' - be that in business, in sport, at home... in life, then it’s time to discover the Art.

Come and play The Art of Extraordinary™.

As a leadership professional, a coach, mentor or trainer, you value investment into your education and having the tools at your fingertips to excel in your role, at your craft and people are your passion. This training is not for coaching newbies, this is about igniting a fresh spark, looking at things from a different perspective and taking your facilitation expertise to a whole new level, updating your leadership coaching toolbox and unleashing a new lease of life into your leadership coaching and training. Be prepared to take your facilitation skill-set to a deeper dimension, perform rapid transformation and have extraordinary coaching conversations like never before.

The Art of Extraordinary game has added a whole new dimension to facilitating groups and working with clients, quite simply by providing the space for transformation to occur. One of the most powerful experiences since implanting this tool into my programs and workshops is witnessing people come to their own conclusions and learning to trust and listen to their own intuition whilst relying on their own innate wisdom….removing the need for people to feel like they have to be told. The transformation this creates is extraordinary, because watching people step into their own self-empowerment and connecting with their own internal resources brings with it an immediate sense of confidence. This then leads to better and faster quality decision making, eliminates fear around taking risks, maximises efforts and resources whilst tapping into the potential that was always there. Its like watching a light bulb get switched on inside each person right before your eyes as they move forward with clarity in the their direction regarding the steps they need to take. And best of all it is so much fun 🙂

" Inside each of us lies infinite potential. It's in being and doing better at the ordinary that we can actually feel and experience the extraordinary."

Genevieve Matthews

The cards are a visual reminder whenever I hit a roadblock. The “Know What’s Important” card is extremely pertinent as I am focusing on planning my time more effectively - especially around what is important to achieve my goals rather than what is urgent or giving in to procrastination. The “Embrace Uncertainty” card is also a great prompt as I have a tendency to stay in my comfort zone and gather lots of information before taking action. The Art of Extraordinary™ is fantastic tool both for myself and to use with clients to get them to think beyond their current limits.

The Art of Extraordinary™ Overview:

This was a shot in the arm, our company needed to move ahead. As small business owners it is very easy to get caught in the day to day running of the business and take your eyes off the bigger picture things.

Vicki and Mark Norek, Business Owners

After lacking motivation and confidence, reconnecting again and getting my mojo back was awesome. It's full steam ahead again and loving it.

Antony O'Dwyer, Business Development Manager

Personally and professionally I've noticed having confidence to reach out to people and follow up. Asking for the business or the recommendation or keeping in touch more with key people has been enormously beneficial.

Holly Galbraith, Business Owner

These mindset mantras for thinking are so powerful and useful on a daily basis. Being a mum and wearing many hats I now where to focus my energy and what’s really important. So valuable for both my professional and personal life.

Nicole Rando, Communications Manager

Genevieve Matthews Hero B&WValuing fun, experience, achievement, creativity and teamwork, Genevieve is highly encouraging of using different and engaging learning experiences.

"Inside each of us is the inner child that is curious, loves to explore, play, create and mostly importantly wants to have fun. When adult life comes along, so many rules, structure, regulations follow. The "box" as we call it, can be limiting and restrictive. So adult learning when made more fun, unique and different can be an inspiring, thought provoking and ultimately a transformative way to learn, to implement and to teach people to know how to take action."

"The topic of mindset and how to improve one's mind, is very dear to my heart, from personal experience as well as being a professional passion. I want people to discover their extra, their potential, that's yet untapped and undiscovered."

With over 25+ years in business across operations, product, sales and marketing and management, Genevieve knows the challenges and opportunities that face individuals and organisations. For the last 8 years, she's been mentoring, coaching, facilitating and speaking, creating a shift in thinking and helping people transform and grow professionally and personally.

Playing The Art of Extraordinary™ was an incredibly insightful experience. The game provided structure to clarify my current challenges, and prompted me to find solutions. I felt it helped me articulate clearly some issues I was having, in a playful and creative atmosphere. I recommend everyone in business keep a pack handy to help break down challenges into milestones.
