What makes LCM different from other self-development programs?
TIME EFFICIENT Life Code Matrix is a 6-hour program usually held in 2 sessions over two half days. However, the potential effects are long lasting and have a powerful impact both personally and professionally.
UNIQUE OUTCOMES Unlike other programs that fit people into specific categories and type, Life Code Matrix expands on the individual uniqueness of each person and deepens their personal power and therefore personal responsibility for all aspects of their lives.
Life Code Matrix is not based on positive psychology or optimistic thinking because it is based on the belief that there is no effort involved in being ourselves once we know who we are. In being authentically who we are we become our best self. LCM is a process of recognition and ownership and the relief of letting go of other people’s expectations. This is the experience of discovering your identity through Life Code Matrix.
What do participants appreciate most about Life Code Matrix?
JUST BE YOURSELF! In comparison with other self- development approaches, Life Code Matrix doesn’t require “work” on the self. Rather than wanting to change themselves, participants come to like and appreciate themselves more.
NO SENSE OF STRUGGLE As a result of Life Code Matrix change is internally motivated and does not engender a sense of struggle. Participants do not have resistance to making changes they feel are necessary.
ENJOYABLE Life Code Matrix facilitators won’t ever ask you what you are feeling, focus on past wounds or painful experiences or define any personality faults. Participants report that they thoroughly enjoy the process and leave feeling wonderfully positive about themselves and their life.
POSITIVE FEELING ABOUT CHANGE In understanding who they are, participants come to know what works for them. Changes are experienced primarily as exciting, not fear inducing.
Benefits of Life Code Matrix
A BIG BANG FOR YOUR BUCK Participants experience an immediate strengthening of their identity which impacts on their effectiveness and productivity no matter what they do in their work situation.
NO NEED FOR ONGOING COACHING OR MENTORING Ongoing mentoring or coaching is appreciated but it is not essential or required to achieve the full benefit of Life Code Matrix.
INTRINSIC MOTIVATION Life Code Matrix can be used to create sustainable change. It promotes a healthy approach to all areas of life and integrates all the different parts of the self which in turn gives more focus and energy to participants to bring to the workplace.
(a whopping 93% of people in the research program who did the process felt it had a positive impact in relation to their sense of well-being).

What do people say?
Life Code Matrix research participants talk about their experiences
“It has crystallized aspects of my life that I need to work on. Given me more self-awareness. Helped me to become aware of what makes me tick, what motivates me. Gives me the confidence that my contribution is real and valid and significant. Given me the confidence to do some difficult stuff. I’ve got a greater sense of direction and purpose so it helps me to be more effective in what I do Extremely effective and helpful, very time efficient. In terms of what I’ve learnt, in terms of the support that it’s given, in terms of helping me define what’s important to me, what makes me tick, it is very, effective.”
“it makes you feel special. It makes you feel unique. It makes you feel yes this is my stamp. This is me. It’s given me a stronger sense of myself. Just being comfortable being me rather than measuring myself against other’s achievements”
“it’s also made me aware of my strengths well-being. It’s also given me tools to connect, connect with what makes me happy. I have found it easier to decide what path I want to go down. I do feel a much greater sense of satisfaction with my job.”
“I’m not flying blind, I have a better understanding now of how I’m made up really been a major help in terms of clarification. it’s a fantastic ‘gauge’.”
“I feel more confident and I can be myself…I’m wanting more to do things that I probably wouldn’t have done before. Just because I know that I can”
“having had that mirror put in front of me and being very happy with what I’ve seen…..I look at things a bit differently and a bit more creatively and a bit more just out of the box.”
“Definitely more of an appreciation for the people I work with and more of an appreciation of what I have at the moment because I’m more in the present and more connected”

About the Research
Aged 14 to 85, the renewal is consistent and reflected in the positive results observed in the independent research.
Research and results:
A group of 15 people were carefully chosen to participate in the 6 month independent research project conducted on Life Code Matrix by Dr Kathryn Owler. She wanted to find out what the shifts were in their well- being across 12 areas of their life from doing the process, and in particular she was interested in the changes it made in their work situations. The results were nothing less than spectacular!
