A few of Mike’s Keynote & Workshop Topics:

  • Leading with an Athlete Mindset – Elite athletes consistently achieve peak performances because they are exceptional at overcoming adversity. There are four pillars, constant in every athlete’s mindset, that contribute to their success: an aptitude of gratitude, choosing to fail-forward, choosing possible vs. impossible, and recognizing the importance of their team. In this presentation, Mike shows audiences that the athlete mindset isn’t solely reserved for athletes; it’s something we can all activate and all benefit from.“The Athlete Mindset” at UBC Okanagan Athletics:

  •  Grief Happens – The antidote for adversity, namely grief, is gratitude. Gratitude can help us overcome our biggest challenges in life. It creates a perspective shift that helps us frame setbacks in the grand scheme of things. It is the foundation for the physical, mental, and emotional growth and recovery for individuals, teams, and leadership groups.

  • “If it’s broke, don’t fix it.” – When things fall apart and you’re in recovery mode amid dispute resolutions, organizational dilemmas, disruptions, disasters, or traumas, don’t ‘fix it’. The concept of rebuilding or ‘fixing it’ is flawed. Looking ahead to what you can build or create (not what you can recreate) is a fundamental shift that organizations need to make.

  • Connection Through Storytelling – The power of storytelling is often overlooked by leaders, managers, coaches, and teachers. Connecting with your team is critically important when it comes to achieving results. As a leader, your followers will work harder for you if they feel connected to you and your vision.

Public speaking has given me an avenue to make an impact on an individual and societal level.
