No matter what you do, you’re a leader and you’re a coach. The two are inseparable from each other. Leading without coaching is malpractice. It’s short-sighted, unsustainable and selfish.

"Mike, a heartfelt thanks for your performance last Friday. I have received countless emails from colleagues commenting on the impact it made to their day. This is just the outcome we were looking for!”

 

Claire Clindinning, Human Performance Consultant, BMO Financial Group

Just wanted to say thank you for a great presentation in Quebec. I am still hearing positive feedback from participants and their owners.

Joy Vancea, Director Organizational Development/ Human Resources, Starkey Hearing Aids

Honestly, Mike was fantastic. His session was insightful, intelligent, thought provoking and funny. I can easily say that he was the highlight of the conference.

Mike was also very easy to work with, I’d surely relish the opportunity to work with him again.

Kim Jenkins, Manager, Event-Based Marketing, BMO

"Your presentation is insightful and entertaining - as it always was. I love reading your books and listening to you. You are better than many of the motivational speaker icons. Not just a bunch of platitudes, but real ideas to think about and to challenge ourselves. You inspire me to think about how my brilliance can be best used to mentor others. Thanks again!"

Katherine Weiser, National Director of Learning, Deloitte Services LP

"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
