When Michael Ian Cedar speaks, the room listens. And, after he’s said what needs to be said, the room changes. His powerful words and presentation abilities adapt to a variety of audience and engagement scenarios. Most importantly, the delivery of his presentation rocks the room. I consistently hear back from people months and years after his presentations- they write because his message lingered in their life and changed it for the better. That’s impact!

Michael Ian Cedar gives a workshop with practical information for the person in any profession that wants to run their business with heart and savvy. It is fun, it is interactive, and most of all it becomes a part of you. He is able to re-ignite the passion in your business and he is able to point out details you may be overlooking. I highly recommend him to any business, organization, or individual.

I am so excited to be able to recommend Michael’s coaching services to anyone that will listen!!! Firstly, Michael and I have been professional associates for over ten years. In that time we have also become Leadership Buddies, where Michael encourages me to learn and grow into a better leader.
Michael has led a few training classes for Road Rebel, the company I work for. We are a mid-sized company with a very interesting culture, music, dogs, hardworking individuals, but really at a loss as to how to define this culture and cultivate it into any meaningful expectations. Michael suggested getting really clear on our Value’s and our Company Creed. He was so passionate about this that he hosted an all-day management retreat where he structured a training with all of our executives, we spent the day debating and agreeing upon what is important to us. At the end of the day we came out with our Creed and our Value’s. The very next day, Michael helped to coach us through a presentation to the company. We were able to draw on personal examples of why these values are important to us and Road Rebel in creating value to the staff. The presentation was a huge success and since then has pointed us all to the direction we need to be going in. We even incorporated the Value’s and Creed in our initial Boot Camp Trainings, Reviews and also give yearly awards to the individuals that best reflect that value.
Through the years Michael has stopped by the office to lead a training or two which always adds variety and value to our ongoing trainings. He has led a brown bag lunch where we spent the time talking about how to flip clients into a positive mode of communication. We invited our Sales team and any coordinator that was interested to attend. The feedback that I got was that everyone loved the hour of power! However, the more valuable feedback was when issues came up or discussions happened and the staff would refer back to that meeting and talk about the techniques they used in order to flip the situation, Michaels training was relevant enough to really impact their daily interaction and it stuck with them!
Last year we were lucky enough to get Michael to speak at our annual meeting. We were focusing on client engagement. The meeting was a huge success and from that meeting, Michael was able to help out a couple employees that needed additional personal coaching. I would recommend Michael to help you with your staff in any area that you think you might need additional support. He is very flexible in molding a training to fit your needs along with really working with you to up your game. I am always available as a personal witness to Michaels coaching ability and as a reference.
