Hi, This is Mike Lipkin. I’m thrilled to talk with you.
I am a Potentiator.
A Potentiator is someone creates breakthroughs with others by enabling them to play at their best.
In these unprecedented times, we’re all going where we’ve never been before. We need people in our ecosystem that multiply our capacity to grow and contribute. We are only as good as the company we keep. And to keep good company, we have to earn good company in every conversation, every day. It’s not good enough just being good enough. We have to inspire others to be the best version of themselves.
Since July 1 1993, I have helped over a thousand companies in 65 countries bring out the best in their people so their people bring out their best for all their stakeholders.
I graduated with a business degree from the University of Johannesburg, South Africa. Then I became a brand manager at Colgate Palmolive. Following that, I became a board member at Grey Advertising South Africa, before emigrating to Toronto, Canada, where I became an Account Director at Ogilvy & Mather, one of the world’s leading advertising agencies.
Following Nelson Mandela’s release from prison and the end of Apartheid, I returned to South Africa where I launched my own training and motivation company, Touch The Sky Inc. Over the next ten years, I published seven books and helped transform the nation into one of the world’s most vibrant democracies.
I returned to Canada in 2002 to launch Environics/Lipkin, a global research and motivation company with the Environics Research Group, one of Canada’s largest and most sophisticated polling companies. Since then, I have published eight bestselling books, including my latest title – The Potentiator – How to Create Breakthroughs with Others in a Post-Pandemic World. All my books and programs are a blend of the celebrated Environics Social Values Research with my own lived experience as a coach, confidante and Potentiator.
In 2018, I also became a certified Leadership Circle Profile practitioner. This enables me to provide state-of-the-art 360 evaluations for both individuals and teams.
While Covid has stretched all of us to the max, I am grateful for the opportunity to operate virtually. I can now invest all my time in being a Potentiator. I have also replicated my in-person impact online. I have created a Mike Lipkin avatar that is even more effective than the flesh-and-blood version. I turn every virtual engagement into a compelling learning experience. In line with my philosophy that life is theatre with consequences, I make people laugh, talk and share while they learn.
But don’t just take my word for it. Check out what some of the world’s best organizations have to say about my contribution to their success.
Also check out my range of programs. I will customize the right one to thrill and delight your people.
Call me on 416-917-6007 and let’s talk about how I can help your people create breakthroughs together.
I look forward to our conversation. Until then, remember: the words we use shape the lives we lead. Talk isn’t cheap. It’s transformational.
