FREE VIRTUAL SESSION: The Journey of Self-Discovery - A Primer
A common thread throughout my early life was abuse, pain and suffering. A very traumatic past left me handicapped with personal issues and unhealthy beliefs. I felt alone, unhappy and lost. The change started with making a choice to go from victim to victor. My journey of personal growth and self-discovery began. The look within was really difficult at first, but I endured and healed my past. The journey continued as I began to look at every aspect of my life. I had Discovered Michael. My passion now is to help others understand this journey, the stages, the many tools available to them, and being an inspiration and guide for those choosing this path. I use my own story and experiences to help connect with my audience including the many trials and tribulations it brings. I humbly share from my heart with full transparency and candor. This session provides an overview and understanding of the discovery process and is intended to inspire, guide and prepare you for your own journey of self-discovery.

    The whole course was so well organized and planned out. It was important to Michael McGinnis that his classes were understood and was always available for questions. His enthusiasm for the teaching was very infectious. He genuinely wanted all of us to do well and to feel comfortable with the content. You can't help but to want to come to class and get involved when the instructor has such a positive and committed outlook to the material and life in general.

    "I would have to say that Michael makes a difference in every person he comes in contact with. He is able to transfer his energy and passion for learning and personal development into an individual or a large group."

    "I have always had great admiration for what Michael McGinnis does for the e-learning industry. Somehow he finds time to both work as a learning practitioner (for Bose) and simultaneously share information about how to create learning on a shoestring budget through conference presentations, white papers, and sharing information. I wish there were more people like Michael who so freely share what they know with others, without asking "what's in it for me?" "Thanks Michael."

    "Michael is an excellent communicator. This past year he spoke at an APICS chapter meeting about Lean Manufacturing Practices. He demonstrated the ability to grab the audience’s attention and keep it by delivering his presentation with energy. By telling the story of his experiences with Lean and 5S, he was able to gain respect from the audience as an expert on the topic. I would recommend Michael to any group needing a speaker on the topics of Lean and 5S."
