From Combat to Corporate – Achieving Success Using Battlefield Leadership Lessons
This inspiring talk is based on the many leadership lessons Mike learned as he trained and ultimately led Marines in multiple combat operations; and how he was able to successfully leverage these lessons as a C-Level executive in a publicly traded company. Mike delivers a compelling and engaging presentation on how he taught leaders in the corporate arena to benefit from and successfully leverage leadership concepts and lessons that were forged in the unforgiving crucible of combat.
His extensive experience as a high-level executive enables him to effectively describe how various combat situations and the decisions and actions employed by combat leaders to overcome them apply to almost every situation a leader will face in the business world.

Protect Your Company’s Future – Unlock the Power of Millennials
The corporate world is experiencing a period of unprecedented generational change. There are now four generations in the workforce and five generations in the consumer market. It’s become apparent that leadership and training strategies and techniques that work well for one generation can be abject failures for others.
This is especially true for the Millennials, a generation of young men and women who are an ever-increasing demographic in companies and organizations. With Baby Boomers retiring at the rate of 10,000 per day, it is inevitable that Millennials will be called upon to serve in leadership roles much earlier in their careers than were preceding generations.
In this thought-provoking talk, Mike relates his experiences coaching and training Millennials in the art of leadership, first as a senior executive, and more recently, as part of his role within client organizations. He provides members of the audience with concepts and techniques they can use to begin developing the youngest generation in their companies to be ready to assume leadership roles in the future.
