Mike has worked in a variety of roles where the need for creativity, resilience and humour have been an essential skill to support the projects and people he works with.
His wider interests in self-taught learning and development have taken in many directions including certifying in NLP based coaching at Master-practitioner level. He has also gained coaching and Learning & Development qualifications through studies with the Open University, LinkedIN learning, ILM and the CIPD.
Improving is good. And, the digital world has a lot to offer to help you gain new skills.
Away from his desk he enjoys movement based ‘improver’ practices including indoor climbing (bouldering), martial arts and more recently ‘stiff guy yoga’ to prevent the loss of movement that comes from office based life. He likes to get outside too.
This ‘nerdy’ interest in physical and mental self-improvement and finding your niche in life is reflected in this blog. He has a day job in improving digital experiences, so he is comfortable with ‘improvement nerd’ as a label from friendly sources.
His ambition is to spend more time writing and helping more people through career transitions and personal challenges with his coaching skills. If you have a coaching or writing opportunities, please get in touch.
Mike writes, blogs, tweets and moonlights as an Assistant trainer/NLP coach with Linda Sykes at Axiom NLP training. He is grateful for their investment in his development journey.
