How I Screwed Up Royally...and Still Won Big

BEST AUDIENCE:  Technology Entrepreneurs & High-Potential Employees and Other Technical People Looking to Grow into Powerful, Impactful Leaders

Technology skills rarely translate into leadership success; at least they didn't for me. 

I'll tell my story about how I went from an introverted coder and IT technician to starting three successful international enterprise software companies, one of which was on the Inc. 5000 list and voted the #1 Best Place to Work in San Diego, California.

Basically, it's all the stuff I wish someone had told me at the beginning of my journey.

In addition to my story, I'll share how I've put it all into an easy to learn system called Elevated Leadership that will walk you through your own evolution and growth, bringing you to a destination of inspiring leadership. 

Attendees will learn how to;

    √ 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 Impactful in the World

The fact is powerful business leaders can create an immense amount of positive benefit in this world. 

The Change is up to Us.  

Michael Says: “To truly lead others, we first need to know and lead ourselves. Once we are secure there, we can show up as that confident, inspirational leader, and everything else falls into place...that's when the real magic happens.”

Available formats:
    • 30 to 60 minute Keynote

   • Small Group Facilitation

   • Two Hour to Two Day Workshop
