Resiliency is developed by accepting that change is part of living, that crisis are not insurmountable problems, by maintain a hopeful attitude and by looking for opportunities for self-discovery. Mike provides techniques for building personal resilience incorporating emotional intelligence, values, strengths, connection and managing physical energy.


It’s easy to be grateful as you climb the mountain but what defines you is how you react when you tumble to the bottom.  Mike will provide insight into healthy ways we can cope with circumstances beyond our control in an often unforgiving and uncompassionate environment.


What is mindfulness, and how can you use it to enhance well-being on and off the job? Mike provides techniques that ease and improve interaction with your family or co-workers, especially in high-stress situations.


We seem fixated on publicly shaming those we whom we might disagree. Reputation dexterity is about reclaiming your life in a way that deals with the issues in a manner that you remain true to yourself. Mike will share his ideas and experiences bringing fresh and compelling perspectives –whether story telling or teaching-and he will make every minute count.
