As a professional coach, Michael brings a unique combination of skills and experiences to his work with clients. His passion for mastery, resilience and challenges are qualities I respect and appreciate as a colleague an peer. His compassion for others is absolute as is his confidence in others. With two decades of work focused on supporting clients to become their very best, he is able to create a space for growth, risk-taking and optimism. Enthusiasm is only one element of effective coaching. Education, skill development, practice and real life experience serving others matters
Michael is authentic. He's curious and playful. He's also an encourager by nature. I think that's important to know about someone whom you dive in with to craft more of what you deeply want in life. While a coach doesn't have to have the same experiences as a client to effectively support them...I sure value his real world experience in training for competition in running and cycling. He viscerally knows what it is to plan, practice, adjust, adapt and persist.
Incorporating nature into the equation is brilliant because we all need what nature has to offer. Too often we've left that out of our formulas and plans.
I've also noticed that Michael holds loosely to agendas so as to allow the freedom to learn, explore and experiment in pursuit of goals. Can't imagine a smarter, more encouraging way to become more of what you (or I!) want to become.
