Your Journey to Greatness Through Routine Podcast


Michelle did a great job energizing our team and keeping them engaged throughout her time with two different groups. Our team members really enjoyed the subject matter and the interactive nature of the activities that Michelle planned for them. I’d highly recommend her for a staff training for any organization or group.

Asst. City Manager, Novi, MI

Michelle was an amazing speaker for the Region V IIMC Meeting in Grand Rapids, MI. Over 70 City/Township municipal clerks from 5 states attended and all gave her rave reviews. Her topics were Avoiding Burnout and Empowering Leadership. Both of which are critical to our daily and professional lives.

City Clerk at City of Walker, MI

Michelle Steffes of IPV Consulting comes highly recommended from my personal experience. I had been going through challenging experiences in my professional life, which were impacting me negatively in all areas of life--even inducing clinical depression. I explored several avenues to seek help. I was hesitant that a coach was what I needed, but I had heard Michelle speak to our employees, and she struck a cord and resonated with me...

Michelle with IPV has done a great job working with our staff to develop much needed skills in time planning, managing personal stress, empathy, listening and many other skills. Her direct approach and dedication to helping people succeed has been a welcome resource for our team.

The Michigan Society of Association Executives was fortunate enough to have Michelle come speak at our CMP Summit this past October. She kicked off our program with the topic "Avoiding Burnout". Our attendees enjoyed her creative and humorous approach to helping relieve stress in the workplace. Our evaluations proved she was the most popular speaker at our 2 day Summit so we have invited her back next year, too!
