Are you ready for the next evolution of you - Getting unstuck and staying that way - Stopping Recycling the same thoughts or Re-living the same problems - Open to the discovery that comes from being heard.
I am a Certified Big Leap Coach with the Hendricks' Institute (see below). Contact me for a first session at no charge to see if working together will benefit both of us.
Here is what people say about the benefits of my life coaching:
"After a decade of personal growth and exploration and many different coaches, I started working with Michael. Almost immediately I thought to myself "YES. This is what I've been looking for". I can't tell you how good it feels to really be heard and understood at the level that Michael provides. I feel totally safe to explore my inner world in his presence, and he seems to have a knack for pointing me in just the right direction so that I discover for myself the answers I've had a hard time finding on my own. I really enjoy the body-centered approach, as it is fast, direct, and eliminates so much of the needless intellectualizing that I have been prone to in the past. In only a couple short months of working with Michael, I have watched myself grow in leaps and bounds, and I look forward to working with Michael for a long time to come." - Client
"In your coaching, I appreciate your exquisite presence and how everything in the field is ripe for discovery...Not only what you notice in the other person, but also the messages you're receiving and the way you weave them into the discussion while still facilitating personal discovery. You're amazing! Thank you." - Nicole
Michael cuts through the fog and easily identifies what is keeping a person, a group or an organization from their optimal performance. He then invites the positive next step that is wanting to take place. Working with Michael is fun! He's funny, gentle and easy-going. In the same moment he makes you feel like a dear friend and asks you to do the very thing you've been avoiding. - Karen Evelyn (Genius Coach)
"Michael is an incredible listener! I feel heard every time we coach together. Plus, I just always felt his support of me, a fan. His feedback was on target and came from a loving place and for me, his calmness was an invitation for me to drop down into my feelings. He is an awesome, knowledgeable coach!" - Margo
In each of our three Skype conversations, I have found Michael to be present, engaged and curious to the possibilities of the dialogue. When he listens, something he does extremely well, yet very different to most. Different, in that he pays me his full attention, does not interrupt, and allows me the time and space to fill in the silence after my first wave of thoughts have been spoken. When he does reply, I know he has been listening and I do feel valued, validated and truly heard. When Michael is speaking, I have found him to be calm, thoughtful and authentic in the way he speaks, and through what he shares I get a sense that he is comfortable with his own vulnerability. As a consequence, I feel he is both trusting and trustworthy. Since speaking with Michael, I have noticed that I too am calmer, more present, and have gained a deeper insight into my own thinking. Overall, I feel that Michael most certainly 'walks the talk' of being The Listening Coach, and I am very pleased to recommend him. - Colin D. Smith (The Listener – Coach and Consultant)
What if you need Listening Skills Training?
How do you feel when you say something and the other person clearly doesn't get what you said? Most of us only get training in how to talk. When you fully get what someone communicates to you (be it a client, prospect, colleague, team member, manager or partner) you benefit both of you. You will be astounded at how collaborative, insightful and motivated people are when they are heard.
You can learn to listen well. Contact me about training for individuals or teams.
See Events for Conscious Listening training.
Momentum Coaching for Organizations:
Managers who really hear what is going on with employees, clients, suppliers are the people who reach their goals easily and avoid the conflicts that only sap energy. Listening coaching is all about helping everyone on the team develop those skills while they create their dream of a success new business. Momentum happens when people really listen.
Business Coaching and Consulting:
Want to achieve and surpass your goals? Looking to make changes that accelerate you and your team? Need a way to bridge what seems unbridgeable?
Here is what people say about the benefits of my business coaching:
"For me, Michael is, Sincerity and Heart, meets Professional Wisdom. He is a master at knowing what is going on underneath the surface for a person and then facilitating them to create lasting results in their life. If you want to get to the root of the challenge, make a shift and create real results, Michael can help you do just that." -Christopher Stubbs (Business Breakthrough Coach)
"Michael has been the most impactful, positive influence in my life, both from a professional and personal aspect. In a matter of 3 years, I grew my business tenfold, while being able to balance my family with two young kids. In my first years of knowing Michael, I consciously noticed how the knowledge transfer helped me achieve and surpass my business goals. In the last few years, I'm really noticing how impactful he has been and continues to be in my personal life as well. Needless to say, everyone around me (partners, employees, my family and friends, Starbucks barista etc) has greatly benefited from my relationship with Michael.” -Paul Saucier (former CEO Sensible Security Solutions)
"Michael is one of those people that you are glad to have in your work environment not to mention your life in general. We've been working together since 2001 and I couldn't begin to convey how much I've learned from him. Michael is truly a colleague and friend that I would recommend to anyone as an exceptional leader, a dedicated listener and most importantly a passionate person. His obvious skill in all things "life" oriented are something I admire and hope to achieve myself." - Colin Taylor (Former VP Sensible Security Solutions)
In February, I was invited to join Katie Hendricks and a group of amazing Hendricks coaches to began the process of creating videos and workbooks as resources for those dealing with crises and disruption. When completed, these will be available in the Restoring Resourcefulness section of the Big Leap Online Programs. Over the next six months, we plan to create a series of videos and best practices and I plan to keep you updated on this exciting project.
