Mike Edwards, CPCC - Life and Leadership Coach

I believe life is best lived at choice - are you ready?


From a very early age, you have been taught life is about working for some goal. You’re always going after the next grade, promotion, raise or some other destination. Then when you get there the satisfaction is short lived, as you reset your sights on the next goal. Do you ever wonder if this is all there is to life?

Leadership and life are about living each moment, seeing your truth and being at choice with the impact you want to have in the world.

dsc03875People turn to me when they are ready to turn the page and write the next chapter of their life’s story. They wake up one morning and find themselves wondering if this is all there is to life. The good news is no matter where you find yourself in life, there is always more available to you if you choose it.

I believe leadership is your ability to respond to what shows up on your path. All the tools, frameworks, processes and other things you may know are all enablers to your leadership. When I work with leaders like you, we start by having you see and understand yourself more clearly than ever. With this increased clarity, we will then strengthen your impact as a leader as you strengthen your responsibility for your impact. 

Don’t think you’re a leader? I don’t agree. I believe all of us are leaders in this world, and the world needs us to step forward. Given this, I work with individuals as they simply want a more fulfilling life. 

Are you ready to choose to lead and live your life more fully?

Life and Leadership Coach

Headshot only

Several years ago I was living a pretty typical life. I had a successful corporate career, was happily married, have two sons and a dog. Despite having so much going for me I wasn’t happy. I had a choice to make; accept the status quo and continue going through the motions, or take charge of my life and take a stand for the life I want!

Guess which one I chose? I now see myself as an Agent of Change helping other people who are tired of the status quo for themselves. I enjoy capturing my thoughts and sharing them with the world every week through my blog and newsletter. I coach and mentor people in either individual or group settings, as they redesign their life to allow for fulfillment, joy and outright aliveness. I work with corporate leaders, who want to take responsibility for the world around them. 

I am living my life … are you ready to do the same?
