I’ve been meeting with Michael weekly for 5 months now and I have seen a great improvement in my work life and happiness. Michael has helped coach me in many aspects of my work and personal life. He is an invaluable resource and I will be continuing to meet with him regularly. He has a genuine passion for his work and the people he works with, and I am happy to call him both a coach and now, a friend.

Michael is an amazing executive coach. He has a mixture of theoretical knowledge and a bag of real-world-ready practical tips that can produce rapid progress. He is personable, patient, encouraging, and always a bundle of great energy and enthusiasm to effect positive change. In my brief coaching exercise with Michael, I could distinctly feel myself learning and growing in both managerial skills and leadership attitude, and most importantly, confidence. I would recommend Michael without reservation to anyone who is looking for a positive and effective coaching experience that produces tangible results.

I highly recommend working with Michael, not only because he’s an outstanding coach, but because he truly loves what he does – which in my case meant helping me figure out the best next steps to pursue a fulfilling career on my own terms. When I first started working with Michael, I quickly realized his immense talent for asking the right questions and “peeling back the layers” during each of my coaching sessions with him. He was extremely helpful in bringing clarity to my own career goals and defining a path forward so I could feel confident taking action and making decisions on my own. Michael’s passion and enthusiasm for helping people shines through in every interaction that I had with him. If you’re looking for some guidance on how to bring focus to your own career “next steps”, book a few coaching sessions with Michael – you’ll gain clarity (and peace of mind) in no time.

Michael is remarkably good at asking the right questions. He’s a deep listener and quickly ventilates the air, purges all the pollution, and leaves you with a clean crisp vision of success and far more oxygen than when you started. No matter how much clarity you think you have, Michael miraculously unearths ways to get you to pause and reevaluate the situation. Here’s the most precious thing Michael has given me: time. His ability to accelerate to the point and provide pro-active solutions has, without question, 10X my performance and secured the personal and professional lifestyle I want, faster.
— Royce Marcus, Sales Strategy Manager at Doordash
Michael spoke at my company’s annual training and brought an energy like nothing we have seen before. His charisma and humor mixed with his vast knowledge in the field kept the team interested and engaged the entire time. Everyone left feeling inspired, motivated and prepared to start the season. Months later, in conversation, my crew will still reference his takeaways, which is a further confirmation of how he inspired them. I hope to have Michael return for years to come.

There is something powerful about working with someone who is walking their talk… Michael does just that!
