1975 Liberty Bowl

Business Coaching since 1988, Mike began coaching at the ripe old age of 16, when as a sophomore in high school he coached his 8th grade basketball midgets to a Jr. High Championship. Performance, play and results have always been second nature to Mike.

Throughout life, Mike has demonstrated competence in every field he has chosen, yet underlying that success was his clear ability to innovate. Since actively training coaches beginning in 1999 following his book Coach2 The Bottom Line: An Executive Guide to Coaching Performance, Change and Transformation, Mike has led the field of coaching with one innovation after another.

"I envy your ability to cut to the chase, to assimilate all the information from the assessments and not only “read” the client but give wonderfully actionable direction."  - Lynda

Mike is available for speaking, consulting and media engagements

But yield who will to their separation,
My object in living is to unite
My avocation and my vocation.
As my two eyes make one in sight
Only where love and need are one,
And the work is play for mortal stakes,
Is the deed ever really done,
For Heaven and the future’s sakes.

Excerpted from Two Tramps in Mudtime by Robert Frost

Mike has developed more than 200 models during his speaking, coaching and consulting career that span entrepreneurial business to organizational leadership and beyond; developing an innovative model for governance called Intocracy and an interdevelopmental form of leadership called Generati. Mike continues to create, adapt and innovate around coaching, leadership and development. Mike currently publishes CoachingEDGE as a daily information source for managers, leaders and professionals regarding coaching.

Mike has written 100s of articles, books and papers on a variety of subjects in almost every known aspect of coaching. He's created more than 50 top 10 lists and continues to publish through his many newsletters and more recently a blog.

Mike has trained 1000s of people with his ideas and continues to innovate daily with his clients. Mike has worked with people in EDS, Ford, Coca-Cola, Exxon, JP Morgan, the Army and 100s of other companies around the world, including business in Russia, India, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia, Germany, Canada, England and South America.
