Mike has been a change leadership mentor with proven success across a diverse global working environment since the mid-1980s dealing with headstrong, stubborn, unwilling to engage and difficult people.
Almost twenty years ago, he began business coaching with a strong focus on effective, masterly communication, conflict resolution and leadership development.
Executive Coaching Style
General Dwight D. Eisenhower, Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Forces in Europe during World War II defined Leadership as ‘the art of having someone do what you want them to do for themselves as well as for you’.
Mike’s professional style is based on this premise, his corporate experience in creating highly motivated, empowered and committed teams with purpose and the continuing success achieved by the many individuals and groups that he has coached and/or mentored over the years.
Mike had a rewarding career through technical, operational, sales, marketing, senior, divisional and executive management roles within three blue chip corporations in Australia and overseas (civil construction, extractive and explosives industries). Early in his business life, and with the guidance of a mentor, he learnt the value of team building and collaborative learning as he developed his personal, management and leadership style. Mike applies these inherent attributes when coaching.
Mike is passionate about coaching and the development of people. That passion translates directly to results; and Mike has helped me grow my personal leadership skills over the last 12 months beyond my expectations. He has ignited further passion within me for personal development. Mike is generous with his time; and has gone over and above his responsibilities to support me during my growth.
