The 3 Essential Leadership Secrets I Wish Someone Told Me Earlier

BEST AUDIENCE:  Technology Founders / Managers / Executives, High-Potential Employees, Anyone Transitioning from a Technical Background into Leadership 

This keynote is a “leadership career hack” – it’s everything Michael wishes he knew at the beginning of his journey, and teaches you the three essential secrets you need to know to become the type of influential leader who drives long-term growth and builds disruptive companies.

During this session, Michael shares his story of how he started as an awkward IT technician, floundering as a clueless new leader, and making mistake after stupid mistake.

He realized that if he wanted to reach his goals he needed to evolve as a leader. He got coaches. He went to trainings. He surrounded himself with people who were better leaders than him. And after years of hard work, it started to sink in.

He was becoming a true leader.

He then went on to start three successful International Enterprise Software companies. One of these – Radiant Technologies Inc., frequented the Inc. 5000 list and was voted the #1 Best Place to Work; while his leadership saw him nominated for ‘Most Admired CEO’ several years running.

His story highlights and teaches the three essential steps that turned his leadership around.

Attendees will learn how to:

    √ Build and rapidly scale a company (without losing yourself, your morals, or your mind)

    √ Transform from Technical Star to Executive Powerhouse

    √ Create Highly Effective Teams through Empowerment and Motivation

    √ Develop Confidence, Earn Respect, and Discover your “Executive Presence” 

    √ Lead with Positivity and Optimism to Create Something Worthwhile in the World

Michael Says: “To truly lead others, we first need to know and lead ourselves. Once we are secure there, we can show up as confident, inspirational leaders who transform companies.”
