More ABOUt ME & Coaching

Hey, I'm Mike. We have a lot in common.

I'm a husband, father, grandfather, business owner, and leader. I love the outdoors and spending time with family and loved ones. I'm trying to figure out how to reduce stress, pressure, and burnout and increase joy, energy, enthusiasm, fulfillment, and happiness in business and life.

We all have, what I call, a "North Star Compass" that is part of us, constantly pointing to our true north, purpose, or mission (*Inspiration for our logo). In our world, with all of its pressures and expectations, it's easy to get off track and lose sight of our true guiding purposes. In business, we often develop a mission and values statement for our company to guide its direction and help everyone focus. However, we often lack this same intentionality when it comes to aligning with our own purpose, mission, and passion. 

I help business owners and leaders align with their purpose and passion and find joy, fulfillment, and success beyond what they believed possible.

A Bit About My Process and Philosophy

Are you sometimes overwhelmed and wondering how to manage conflict, frustration, burnout, and others' expectations? I'm with you and have experienced feelings and emotions of stress and overwhelm in these situations.

 

Even though I have not experienced all you have, I've discovered and adopted a powerful process that has helped me and thousands like me make incredible breakthroughs, align with purpose, and experience greater happiness, success and life satisfaction. My coaching philosophy is informed by iPEC's Core Energy Coaching, accepted by the International Coaching Federation (ICF), the leading global organization for coaching standards and certification. My philosophy and methodology are also informed by many years in leadership roles with the Arbinger Institute and Crucial Learning and my experience as a business owner, leader, top sales producer, and human. 

A note about alignment and purpose: When our lives, career, or business is not in line with our values, passions, and desires, it's like driving a car out of alignment. Driving this way puts tremendous stress on the tires, wears them out much more quickly, and can cause car damage, poor fuel efficiency, and loose steering. Like tires, we can push through for a while, but we wear out when misaligned, and we cause damage to ourselves and others. As we find purpose in all that happens we become aligned with who we are and who we desire to become. This alignment unlocks joy, passion, and a zest for all the opportunities that life presents.
