Mike’s approach and character is strong. He communicates well with people without making them feel intimidated. Mike worked well with everyone on our team. They felt he was very approachable. His style can make change happen.

...That although our growth required us to put together [some] HR basics, we did not want to change the culture of our business by adding bureaucracy and rigidity. . . Perhaps the most unique and valuable thing Mike brings to our company is his ability and willingness to handle the toughest people problems. Mike has brought individualized help and resolution for problems ranging from substance abuse, anger management, personality differences, poor inter-personal skills, and many more. Mike’s solutions can result in an employee exiting our business, or, more often in the company retaining a talented employee who simply needed help getting over one “weak spot”.

Mike took time to listen and understand our business, taught us about our employees given the nature of our work, provided useful advice and helped implement a program that is working!

Social media is full of good information and useful advice. But much of it is similar, recycled or platitudinous. Mike's writing grabbed my attention because I haven't seen anyone else tackle some of the topics he talks about. His view is original. And his articles are short and to the point.

His views on empathy have transformed my life. I’ve come to see it more as an aspect of wisdom than a problem emotion that gets in the way. He helps me be a better manager, sales person and person.

I have attended a number of management/ leadership seminars and it is my opinion that Mike has a unique way of capturing his audience, which is critical in the learning process. Mike is extremely intelligent, very well rounded and is up to date on the newest trends in business.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Mike on numerous projects. His attention to detail, organizational skills and creative ability definitely put him into a league of his own.
