Maikel succeeds in unlocking a leader's true potential. Every individual has been shaped to some extent by their emotional experiences and how those experiences have been internalized. Understanding those influences and how to use or overcome them determines each of our individual successes.
At this level, Maikel succeeds at helping leaders and organizations build the foundation and infrastructure they need to unlock and unleash their potential to learn, grow, persevere, overcome, and succeed. And to ensure that the foundation and infrastructure are secure enough so the strategies and tactics built upon it will never diminish or fade.

Maikel is an excellent executive coach. He works with you to help discover your strengths and apply them in ways that are both effective and in line with your goals and personality. His techniques helped give me confidence in difficult situations and build trust in myself.
If you do the work he outlines, you will feel more confident in who you are, the decisions you make, and your ability to handle life in a way that is true to yourself and points toward success--however you define it. I worked with Maikel while looking for a new position and I know his techniques and guidance helped me during my interviews and once I started at a new company. I know I'll continue to use what I learned in both my professional and personal life.

It seems like every day you see people offering coaching without any background or experience. This is not the case with Maikel. He knows his stuff and he has been doing this for years.
Maikel helped me to work smarter, he gave me the tools I needed to succeed in any situation. He helped me find purpose in life and helped me set goals for the future. He especially helped me when I was deciding to leave my old company and pursue an opportunity with a new company that included equity and ownership.
Originally I was very skeptical working with a coach, but he was worth every dollar!

Thank you Maikel for showing me how to build my foundations deep so that when the sand shifts (as it inevitably does in life), I will stay grounded in my values. You taught me to take action and enjoy the ride. What a great ride, what a GREAT coach! Thank you for helping me on my journey."

Since going through the personal and business development coaching you provided, I learned to set realistic goals. The weekly follow-ups kept me on track and I have learned to think like an entrepreneur. This shift in mindset was the key and I do not believe I would have found it for a very long time without your help.
I am now working my business full-time and reaping the rewards I have wanted for a very long time. The clarity I have in my business is a direct result of your help. -

I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how excited and pleased I was with your contribution to our recent all-company retreat. The Maikel Bailey sessions were clearly the highlight of the "sessions" from all the feedback I heard, from the CEO to the rank and file/outstanding. I wish I had been able to attend all five of your classes, but those I did attend, on leadership fundamentals and dealing with drama were outstanding!
You were AMAZING! The deftness with which you drew your audience into the discussion, the respect and attention you showed to each comment, and your ability to leverage those contributions to build your message and deliver the value in each "conversation" was impressive, to say the least! The only thing I might do differently next time is to give you MORE time!

Each module gave me actionable items I could put into use to improve myself. I liked the journal emphasis and also the assignments and accountability. Your approach is engaging.
I feel I have a big box of tools to apply in leading the brand and improving personally. I can’t say these things are a habit yet but you’ve taught me how to be more self-aware, to see what I’m doing well and what I can improve. I see steady progress in the coming years. I’ve noticed positive changes in several employees too.
I am a much better person for knowing you and learning from you. Thank you.

Tanner LLC (public accounting firm with a soul) had the pleasure of having an inspiring session with Maikel on the Psychology of Building Better Relationships Quickly. What made it inspiring? Maikel didn't just "teach." Maikel got everyone on our team actively involved. And he demonstrated, in real time, things like "the universal friend signal" (smile), how to shake hands, etc. and how to "open the emotional door." Maikel is a gifted teacher and friend who has helped us become better!
Tom Lund, Director of Practice Development at Tanner LLC
What he has done for me is beyond anything I would have imagined. I thank God for him and for leading me to him.
Maikel’s coaching is clear, patient, detailed, to the point, and produces results.
What Maikel has taught me and guided me through is a life changing journey of growth, strength, direction, and clarity beyond anything I thought possible to have about one’s life path and career or business. This is not just about business, it is about your entire life - how to put things that are not well aligned with who you are right, and then how to make that which is right in your life work for you to enable you to live your best life ever in all areas of your life.
Thank you Maikel!

Change is difficult - sometimes seeing the changes we need to make, sometimes making the change after it is seen. But, change is one of the most important things we all must do in our lives. I credit Maikel with helping me come to terms with the changes I knew needed to be made in my life and appropriately pushing me to actually "make" those changes. Maikel takes the powerful elements found in the ThinkTQ system and uses them in addition to his own invaluable insight and wisdom and creates breakthroughs in lives. In this case, my life! I will always grateful that I met Maikel and have continued to hire him as a coach and mentor. Is there a greater investment that can be made than in ourselves? I recommend Maikel without any reservation whatsoever for any type of coaching you can imagine. His creativity, problem solving, and solution-oriented techniques are invaluable and can change your profession and personal life!

As an accountant and business coach I believe in the system. Coaching with the RIGHT coach is an investment and Maikel is the right coach for me. Maikel has helped me identify areas of weakness and pushed me beyond my comfort zone in order for me to achieve what I want for myself and my business.
He holds me accountable to my actions and helps me reflect on my journey not only with my business but with my life. He has helped me identify what it is I exactly want rather than what I think I should be and because of this my ROI is priceless. I will be around for a long time and not fade away like so many businesses that can't target what their true goals, missions, or values are.
