      What if we could be challenged in the way we think? The way we believe in ourselves, our strengths, and our future? What if we took time to dream greater dreams for our ourselves, our families, our schools, churches and businesses?
Whether it be a one-hour presentation, a day-long conference or a weekend setting, the possibilities are limitless of me working with you to create an event . No matter how great you are dreaming, the age or status of your audience, I am confident that I can help meet your needs." 

 Challenging the Way We Think

Mike began coaching and leading 50 years ago. He quickly realized that his passion would lead to unlocking the greatness within audiences of all ages and interests. He sought and discovered ways to teach, lead and coach within academia, military, business and faith based organizations.

Employing the disciplines of educating, equipping and engaging others, he became a perpetual student. During his incredibly successful and challenging journey, Mike determined that, ’retirement’ was not in the picture and he would continue to be dedicated to the future and share the multigenerational lessons learned.
