Founder story


A lifelong advocate of intentionality, Melissa Steginus founded Intentional Productivity to create healthy workplaces and empower individuals to lead fulfilling lives (by their own definition).

Prior to Intentional Productivity, Melissa spent a decade providing frontline mental health support and strategic developments to healthcare legislation and resources. With a formal background in social work, specializing in community development and nonviolent communication, her work spanned across three continents, including three international aid projects in South Africa. She also authored Everyday Mindfulness (2020) and Self Care at Work (2018).

Blending her scope of expertise in strategic development, mental health and mindfulness training, and an ongoing practice as a Certified Coach Practitioner, Melissa brings an empathetic and person-centred approach to system redesign and a much-needed paradigm shift to the pursuit of productivity.
