The Workshop

Mike Nygren: Author

The Ten Balloons. Principles of Leadership, Life and Love captures the spirit of what it means to take an intentional look at your life. This realistic approach to a balanced life is personal and practical in outlining steps for creating intentional purpose statements in ten areas of your life.

Mike’s story telling approach to life brings great inspiration and motivation in the areas of family, career, relationships, education, finances, health, and adventure. This multi-generational topic is designed for young people and adult audiences of all ages who like personal challenges.


What if we could be challenged in the way we think? The way we think about leadership and the need to encourage and mature leaders within our country. What if we became intentional at all age levels in emphasizing the soft skills of leadership - to be better communicators, to have a voice, and to be willing to build on our strengths while impacting the world around us? 

 Job Readiness is a real life workshop to help students prepare for graduation and identifying long term careers and pathways. The fast-paced interactive sessions help students articulate themselves appropriately as they seek employment or admission to post-secondary higher education, vocational institution, or military services. The innovative curriculum helps unlock student leadership skills, improve communication skills, dealing with financial responsibility, and promote volunteerism and service learning. Ideal for 8th grade through high school seniors.

"Mike has an incredible ability to inspire, motivate, and challenge people. Today's youth need someone like him to help unlock and discover their true potential. His focus on leadership development, communication, and responsibility directly targets and strengthens areas often neglected. In the end, his type of teaching and coaching makes people stronger, more confident, and ready to work and lead in the world. I am excited about the possibilities of the Job Readiness opportunity because as a business owner I see the great potential in helping our young people today and practice important life skills prior to graduation."
