Are you an aspiring healing leader who dreams of making a better world through a more creative, conscious approach to business?

Working with me as your Executive Coach: A Note from Michael

I will help you define, prioritize and achieve the results that are most important to you and your organization.


Depending on what you need, I move fluidly between listening and facilitating, consulting and advising, and mentoring and teaching. Sometimes we focus on a particular performance challenge like preparing for a major presentation or sales opportunity. Other times we may be working together on elevating your competency in a key leadership skills development area like empathic listening or innovative thinking, but whatever the specific focus, I’m committed to help you achieve your most important goals in a way leads you to experience greater effectiveness, fulfillment and freedom in all aspects of your life.


We will set clear intentions for the work and be open to spontaneity.  And, although we deal with your greatest challenges - I will caringly confront you and insist on accountability - you’ll find that the process is enlivening, illuminating and often, fun.


I work with many different types of leaders, from a wide range of industries, including: 


  • Brilliant analytical people who need to expand their emotional intelligence/communication skills and/or their creative/visionary thinking in order to be successful as they assume positions of greater responsibility.
  • Creative visionaries who need help prioritizing, executing and making tough decisions.
  • Successful entrepreneurs who are seeking deeper meaning, a higher purpose, and guidance in bringing more joy to their lives.


I believe that business is the most powerful force for addressing the big challenges of our time. I’m especially keen to help aspiring conscious leaders.  If you dream of promoting human flourishing while generating exceptional financial returns then let’s get started!

The Renaissance Day

I lead strategic planning retreats and creative problem-solving programs for teams of senior executives around the world. In these sessions clients are guided to craft Vision, Mission and Value Statements and clarify the goals and objectives for their organizations.

I often ask my clients if they’ve taken the time to do similar exercises for themselves personally and they usually answer that they are too busy with their many responsibilities.


The Renaissance Day is your personal creative, strategic planning retreat.

The Renaissance Day is for you if you want support in:


  • Starting, growing or selling a business
  • Finding deeper meaning and a higher purpose in your life and work
  • Managing and optimizing a major life transition
  • Deepening your appreciation for the joys of living
  • Aligning your goals and priorities with your business or life partner
  • Writing a book



You’ll return home revitalized, inspired and confident, ready for the best year of your life.
