Stand in your Truth -Michael S. Seaver

“Be the person you needed when you were younger, and if you do that, you’re going to find a tremendous meaning and joy in life.” Michael S. Seaver

The workplace continues to evolve, as people become more aware of themselves and what they want.  It is therefore important that the leaders of today understand the trends and align themselves accordingly. Michael S. Seaver provides coaching for leaders to help them unlock their potential and says it all goes back to finding your authentic self and being true to who you are.

Michael S. Seaver is an award-winning executive coach, leadership consultant, keynote speaker, and author. He’s on a mission to unlock human potential to help people uncover and live their purpose, and live a more meaningful and authentic life. His unique methodology has revolutionized how leaders can live authentically and how organizations engage employees. He offers no-nonsense strategies to help people find confidence in their life’s narrative, commonalities across generations working today, and ways to communicate with emotional intelligence.

Michael’s newest book, I Know, A Practical Guide For Awakening To What’s Within And Finding Work-Life Integration, is a how-to guide Michael uses with clients walking you through the three phases of personal transformation and nine processes you can complete alone or with trusted friends. The book tells Michael’s raw and authentic story, offers research-based psychological truths, and is full of real-world client examples. After reading I Know, you’ll transition from believing life’s answers come from outside yourself to knowing you can discover the answers already inside yourself.

For more than 25 years, Michael has lead teams and has coached global leaders since 2011. He’s invested thousands of hours in the “arena” managing personal and organizational change, guided others to uncover their lives’ missions, and taught leaders how to create psychological safety by inviting employee life experiences into workplace.
