Almost every leader with whom I’m working right now is reporting some signs of fatigue and even burnout. And even if you aren’t a leader, your job may be wearing you out. One thing is for sure: vacations are arriving just in time.
Thank-you for delivering a truly pre-eminent performance yesterday with our team in Denver. While we had high expectations, you were able to exceed those expectations, and put gasoline, and even dynamite on the fire.
What I most appreciated was the time you took in preparing to better understand our company, our situation and what we needed you to deliver.

"Mike, thanks for doing such an amazing job for us. The day became everything I hoped for and I think we actually managed to turn a few heads. I can honestly say I haven’t had so many “thank you’s” in a long time."
John Clinton, President, Transcontinental Media
"This was the first time I had seen Mike Lipkin live and he did not disappoint! Mike had our group of 400+ sales and marketing team on the edge of our seats and waiting for his next brilliant and funny Lipkinism! Not only did he motivate and enlighten our group, he was also very accessible for a one on one discussion after his sessions were complete. Truly an inspiring individual! Well done! Here is the line (low line visual) and this is where we play (way above that line)!"
Jeff Goyette, Sales Leader, Bell Aliant
To say that they loved you is seriously under-stating it. Holy CROW!! I mean, when you run a Conference for a bunch of auditors – people who MAKE THEIR LIVING CRITICIZING PEOPLE -- you just stay ready for lots of “helpful suggestions.” The only thing any of us heard about your talk was “Oh my gosh it was just wonderful!” Seriously – they loved you, and so did I! You were just exactly the perfect opening-day speaker for us; you had us up and running all week, and quoting you the whole time! You were a HUGE HIT with a very difficult audience!
Mary Barnett, President, Association of College and University Auditors
Mike – just wanted to let you know that the B.C. government just released the 08/09 workforce engagement survey results (measures employee satisfaction), ILMB had the largest increase in government, a 10 point increase from 61 to 71 which is remarkable (the next largest increase for a Ministry was 6 points in MEMPR). Your work with us on the ILMB vision and the Supervisors session (along with my tour of all offices with video clips in hand) made a substantial contribution to ILMB’s improved employee engagement. THANKS!
Steve Carr, Deputy Minister, BC Integrated Land Management Bureau
