Michelle’s Vision for Leaders: Setting the standard for leadership in the digital age by leading change through collaboration and inventing new ways to create value. Today’s leaders blaze trails, broker capability and connect by sharing their story. They are role models that care about people and outcomes. They have the courage to do what is right even when no one is looking. Digital age leaders have influence because of who they are and not from a title in a box on an organization chart.

Michelle’s Mission is to:

  1. Serve today’s leaders by changing how they lead themselves and others
  2. Provide a unique leadership model as a guide for learning
  3. Provide hope for emerging leaders seeking informal learning options
  4. Get the conversation started so trailblazer leaders can leave their legacy
  5. Help older and younger workers relate to each other’s viewpoints
  6. Transform traditional project managers into change leaders
