What Clients Are Saying...

Mike is the real deal. He helped me mentally prepare for the difficult conversation I needed to have to sever a business relationship with a long-time contact. I was supported in advance of the conversation as he helped me to consider all the angles, how to avoid burning a bridge, and I felt well prepared to make a graceful exit. On the day it took place, Mike even called to check in on me. We haven’t been working together for very long, yet I already feel completely supported and like I have a coach who has got my back. I’m looking forward to carrying on with his insightful approach to helping me get “unstuck”.

- SUE STECKLE, MBA, MSC

Mike is someone who not only works well with people, he understands organizations. He has a knack for getting to the bottom of things. He can think fast in a crisis and is rarely "rattled" by tension or conflict. In fact, he is at his best in helping to resolve such situations.
