    Testimonials & Endorsements 

    • "Before attending Michael's boot camp, we operated on different playing fields and were not in sync, creating a dysfunctional organization. Everyone was trying to do the right thing independently, creating friction and frustration among us. Michael and his team help us understand the importance of being in the same field and being able to share our goals, expectations, and vision. Since attending the boot camp, we have started sharing our goals and expectations and playing in the same field. We have weekly meetings to discuss the targets and align ourselves as a team. This alignment and sharing of the team's expectations are vital to a team's success. Now the team can make decisions and lean on each other for help. Our day-to-day work almost got in our way of not attending the session. But, as a team, we are glad we listened and took time from our daily operations to work on the future of our business. Taking the time to work in the business is essential and sometimes overseen by leaders. So we are delighted with the time invested as we started to see the return on investment immediately.

      What impressed me the most was the overall system, in other words, the step-by-step guide on how to
      improve the output. This system was the key for our team as we needed to build the structure and
      standardize our process to eliminate doubts and confusion. Mike and his team did a fantastic job creating the building blocks from the Metronomics book to simplify the implementation and why it is essential. I recommend this boot camp to other CEOs because you need to take time to work on your business. This system is a proven method that will help get your team aligned and speak the same language. Once you have all your team working in the same language, you will have the foundation to grow and take your organization to the next level. Mike's engagement and energy will make this boot camp easy to implement.

      The return of investment is immediately. Take the time to work on your business. This boot camp helped us all align and understand each other's expectations and frustrations. We all held ourselves accountable for the actions and plans we said we would take. In simple words, we are speaking the same language now. All team members' engagement is contagious and spreads throughout the organization; that is what we want across the team."

    • "This cleans up your business! My most valuable take away was clarity, not only about our mission, values and processes but also on the roles of the company. Not only did it help provide clarity for the company but it also gave an uptick in pride, when someone in your company starts to see that they are in charge of operations or marketing a sense of identity is established and I could feel that with our team members.

      The energy, I immediately felt it when I came onto the screen and it only got better throughout the sessions. This was really important because some of the questions and topics we were discussing were difficult conversations. Having a high energy host and overall team allowed our business team members to feel comfortable and open to those discussions which helped provide greater clarity. I think if you have a team session with low energy those conversations and authenticity are ignored and Michael and his team helped immensely in that area."

    • "Before the bootcamp, I think each member of the team had an idea of where we collectively wanted to go, but I don’t think there was a clear path on how to get there. Now, you know my personality, so the path forward was very clear to me. To my surprise, it wasn’t exactly the same for the rest of the team. The nice part of the camp was that it started to put a vision in everyone’s mind of how we could grow, and what the steps are to get there. I think the process of taking something that appears to be overwhelming and breaking it into digestible portions made the long-term goals become transparent and obtainable.

      Since the bootcamp, we’ve focused a lot on the day-to-day pieces and what needs to be done right now to reach our long-term goals. This has had a great impact as its given people the foresight to make decisions that don’t just solve a problem but provide a foundation for the next steppingstone of our growth plan."

    • "For me, the decision to attend the bootcamp was an easy one. I have come to know Michael’s business acumen, his caring for business leaders and his ability to apply process to business challenges. Given that our business is a start-up with high-growth potential and high-impact potential, I wanted to make sure I had another set of experienced eyes helping me stand-up the business in preparation for our expected growth.

      Our time together as a team did a number of things for us. It edified our alignment behind our cause, core values and vision for growth. Having a third party efficiently and effectively facilitate that for us was great experience. We came into bootcamp as a loose team with a loose understanding of vision and mission. We left as a tight team ready to Ignite Clarity, Confidence and Curiosity in the leaders we serve. We aligned around our commitment to revolutionize leadership by ending mental suffering in the workplace in order to enable leaders to reach their full potential."

    • "Our recent engagement with Michael proved to be an incredibly valuable experience. The impact of his expertise and the Metronomics framework was immediately noticeable as it quickly brought clarity to our conversations and significantly reduced time wasted on organizational issues. Prior to working with Michael, we often found ourselves struggling to determine who was in charge of specific tasks and who held responsibility for certain outcomes. His guidance helped us establish a straightforward structure that eliminated these ambiguities.

      Being a startup, one of our primary challenges was establishing a solid framework for growth. Michael's consultation proved instrumental in this regard. By working closely with him, we were able to develop a comprehensive set of common long-term and short-term goals. These goals served as a guiding light for our entire team, aligning everyone towards a shared vision and purpose.

      Furthermore, Michael helped us define clear metrics to measure both individual and company milestones. This will enable us track our progress effectively and ensure that we remain on course towards achieving our objectives. With this framework in place, we will gain a deeper understanding of our company's performance and will be able to make data-driven decisions to fuel our growth."
