"Leading The Leadership Challenge Workshop all around the country for the Tom Peters Company, Mike and I worked together for many years. For me, sitting in the back of the classroom, while Mike was presenting, was a practical, down-to-earth leadership lesson in how to create intimate conversations instead of trite trainings. Michael’s wealth of experience on the firing line in real business situations allowed him to relate to each person in the room no matter what their title or position. If you’re looking for a trusted, competent professional to lead the change effort in your business, you’ve come to the right place. If theory plus practical results is what you’re after, look no further. Michael Neiss is your man."  Robert H. Thompson  Leadership Author, Speaker and Executive Coach 


"Michael is and continues to be a critical business partner for Herman Miller, focused in the area of leadership development and coaching for Hi-Potential Executives and all levels of leadership, employee engagement, group facilitation, change management, and organizational development. What makes his engagement with Herman Miller so uniquely successful is his ability to integrate the theory, leadership practices, and his own "in the trenches" stories into meaningful learning experiences on what really matters as a leader at Herman Miller. In addition, his passion for courageous leadership and for employee engagement (along with his great humor) elevates the leadership conversation to a new level." Deb Exo Owner/President at Grand River Consulting

Michael is one of the most engaging, professional, ethical people I know. If you want someone you can trust to do what he says he will do, Michael is your person!"  Carol Orlowski Corporate Training Consulting and Delivery
