    Working with Michael McGinnis was absolutely outstanding! He was very knowledgeable, available, and empathetic to me. He really took the time to understand my situation, and his coaching was very helpful. His suggestions regarding my resume and LinkedIn profile were very instructive - I have had dozens of views to my profile. Michael is a good listener, and knows just how to coach and make relevant suggestions. Also, his group coaching classes were very helpful. Thank You Michael

  • T. Hall
    In the Midlands Tech/Bose Blythewood years that we worked together, I always knew there was something very special about you. I'm not talking about talent, exceptional expertise in your area, or your ability to put together excellent training. I see now what that was. It was your heart. That, my friend, is the best quality about you. You have lived a full life - excelling professionally and always caring more for others than for yourself. You have, and continue to, bless others.

    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.

For Leaders

Book Cover Pic 4
A New Framework for Future Leaders is needed to guide humanity forward. Traditional leadership development is from the outside-in, leaving a leader prone to external temptations. Authentic leadership is from the inside-out, taking that hard look within to know self, leading by example, focusing more on the "WE" vs "ME".
