About Michael
About Michael
Speaker, Author, Expert

R. Michael Anderson teaches leaders how to lead others—as well as themselves—from a Soul-Centered perspective, leaving the ego behind and stepping into true purpose.

Michael’s business successes include starting, growing, and selling three software companies, some of which landed on the Inc. 500|5000 list of Fastest Growing Companies and won Best Places to Work in San Diego, California. Despite these achievements, for a time Michael felt unfulfilled; hard drugs, divorce, depression, and lawsuits brought him to a low point. A quest for change led him to earn his master’s degree in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica. Now he is devoted to teaching others the tools that transformed his own life, so that they too can achieve new levels of personal and business success.

He has pioneered Soul-Centered Leadership and teaches this through his best-selling books, keynote speeches, and trainings. A powerful yet vulnerable and authentic speaker, attendees find him thought-provoking, inspirational, and unique.

Michael has worked with a broad range of clients, including Uber, Microsoft, SAP, Stanford University, Vistage, Young Presidents Organization (YPO), and Entrepreneurs Organization (EO).
