Activate your leadership

A book for leaders who want to be the leader others want to follow 

There’s an outdated belief that leadership is for those with the right title, certifications, or tenure in the corporate world.

The truth is that leaders are people like you who choose to activate their leadership.

You already have everything you need to lead.

This book introduces you to a simple framework to guide you on your leadership journey and enhance your understanding of:

  • What’s important to you that consciously and unconsciously guides your leadership
  • What makes you feel safe or causes you to withdraw because leadership asks you to push through your fears
  • What motivates you each day, whether you’re working hard or needing a break
  • How leaders take effective action in alignment with who they are as a leader

Are you ready to Activate your Leadership? Yes? Good!

The world needs your leadership.

My first impression of this book was a strong feeling of warmth and support. Mike offers delightful first person stories, a clear perspective on leadership, and a framework for discovering and putting into motion who you are as a leader. This framework creates the firm ground from which to encounter unexpected and possibly life-altering discoveries. In my work, I see that the world needs more leaders built from the inside out. That is the journey this book takes you on.

Activate your Leadership is for you if:

  • You want to know what makes you a great leader, and how you limit yourself and others
  • You want a level of self-awareness that will have you responding with confidence to whatever happens in your world
  • You want your leadership to inspire others to follow, and more importantly, grow the leader in themselves
  • You want to be the leader that others want to follow

The world needs and wants your leadership. Activate your Leadership can help you be the leader others want to follow. 

Mike’s profound wisdom of belief in self and others, taking responsibility, and self-leadership permeates every page of this book.”

I met Mike at a conference before the iPhone was a thing. Watching him speak, I knew he had the intangible ability to see all the shades of gray it takes to lead people with authenticity and humility. I’ve never thought of myself as a leader.  This book made me smile, brought me to tears, and most importantly gave me four simple, but not easy, dimensions to stop and take a look inside about who I am and what kind of leader I want to be.
