R. Michael Anderson, MBA, MA has a striking combination that creates truly impactful transformation in leaders – he has the real-life business success of founding, scaling and exiting three software companies, plus the educational background of a Masters Degree in Psychology. 

This combination gives him the unique ability to connect to other leaders as a peer, then teaches evidence-based leadership skills that genuinely drive behaviour and performance. 

It’s the reason that Stanford University brings him into work with their start-up ecosystem, PwC has him work with their high growth CEO’s, and companies like Microsoft, Salesforce, and Uber bring him to level up their managers and executives.

Michael shares how his Californian companies landed on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing US companies, created a culture so strong that they won the #1 Best Place to work, and Michael himself was honoured as the Social Entrepreneur of the year. In 2005 he held the office of President of the Board of Directors for a chapter of Conscious Capitalism, an international organization dedicated to elevating humanity through business.

A gifted storyteller who shares his failures as much as his successes, the terms “vulnerable”, “authentic”, and “powerful” are often used to describe his presentations. 

With his background in psychology and neuroscience, he transforms managers into true leaders with high-performing teams in high-growth companies. He’s written two best-selling business leadership books, contributes to Entrepreneur.com, and is a former radio-show host.

In this fast-moving, highly insightful session, attendees will learn how to;

  • Shift out of Imposter Syndrome into a Confident, Resilient, Powerful leader who naturally Earns Respect and Loyalty from Everyone.
  • Let go of the Day-to-Day Tactical Work and position yourself to be a Strategic, Forward Thinking Leader who’s working ON the Business instead of IN the Business.
  • Get the Most out of your Team by Empowering and Growing, Motivating and Inspiring, and holding them Accountable….WITHOUT Being a Jerk!

If your leaders need tools and skills to get their teams and the organization to the next level, this is the session for them.

Michael took a loose brief, covering lots of different topics of interest and wrapped it all up into a 75 minute session covering leadership, productivity hacks, resilience and more, which resonated incredibly well with my team. We often have speaker sessions and Michael's was the highest rated of the year so far!

I don't usually take event speakers too seriously so I was really impressed when Michael had me hooked within the first 60 seconds. Actions speak louder than words so I'll simply share that he helped me achieve a life goal of writing a book. This happened very quickly, after spending a few hours with Michael. 5 stars. I recommend.
