Mike works one-on-one with leaders and individual contributors in a confidential setting to help them identify and leverage their strengths and do more of what fuels them and what they love. Mike also works with teams to identify their collective team strengths and better align them to accomplish individual and team objectives, including facilitating group retreats and strategic planning sessions.
From more than 25 years of representing employers in litigation and collective bargaining, Mike discovered that the "secret sauce" for winning workplace disputes is to prevent them from arising in the first place, and the best way to do that is by helping organizations create better workplaces in which their employees are developed, cultivated and engaged.
Because he believes in this formula so strongly, Mike has supplemented his legal practice by becoming a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach and co-founding Upstream Principles LLC. As a coach, Mike guides leaders and teams on how to recognize and develop their strengths, with the goal of creating better workplaces, more engaged workforces and fewer employment disputes.
As a coach, what sets Mike apart is his high level of emotional intelligence, his insight into how people can best utilize their unique strengths, and his passion for helping others discover and live out who they are designed to be.
