I expect to make an impact.
And I like the pressure that comes with that.
– Michael Canic
Having impact. That’s what drives Michael Canic. It was true when he was a national championship winning coach, a corporate leader, and it’s true now as a strategy + execution consultant and international speaker.
“I’ve always loved travel and adventure. Bernadine and I have been to more than 40 countries. Whether it’s journeying by camel in the Sahara, trekking the mountains of Northern Pakistan, or canoeing on the Amazon, we are always up for adventure.”
“Professionally, I love working with committed people and making a difference. When I get to see the before-and-after it’s tremendously rewarding.”
“Ruthless Consistency. Leaders who are intensely committed to winning are those who develop the right focus, build the right team, and create the right environment … consistently.”
“What our clients will tell you – and I make this commitment to them – is that ours is the most effective strategic process they’ve experienced. Why? Because it creates the focus, alignment and discipline to win.”
“There are some tremendous speakers who tell uplifting stories. But my intent is to provoke, inspire and equip. I want you uncomfortable. I want you face-to-face with what you haven’t done, yet knowing you must do. And then inspired and equipped to do it.”
“I worked with FedEx for five years. Great company. It was when the Total Quality movement was taking off. I was responsible for implementing service quality strategy in Western Canada. We produced more quality success stories than anywhere else in the Americas.”
“I spent three years coaching college football. Loved it. I loved the intense focus on achieving a common goal. We won a national championship. Those three years shaped my thinking about commitment, strategy and execution.”
“My undergrad degree was in sport science. For my Masters degree I studied skill acquisition in the context of Eastern philosophy. And my interdisciplinary PhD focused on cognitive psychology and human performance. If you suffer from insomnia I’ll send you a copy of my dissertation.”
Reach out, I look forward to hearing from you.
