What our clients are saying

Christi Barbour

Founder + Partner

Micah and Mike have made a significant impact on our company and our growth. I am all about self-improvement of any form, including coaching.   

I would say that the training for our Leadership team is akin to an operating system for our leaders and people. The individuals who have received it so far (including me), and those that report to them, have all made remarks about how impactful it has been.  I feel confident that this is something you would find highly beneficial and intriguing if you are thinking about leadership development and health.
