Offshore Retreats


I have found when my clients come to me, they sense a GAP between where they are and where they want to be in terms of one of three things:

  1. Their company is not as profitable as they would like it to be.
  2. They don’t feel they have the proper team in place to reach their desired destination.
  3. They don’t have the time they would like to spend with the people who really matter in their lives.

I have found I am able to close that gap for them by helping them grow with a purpose instead of by accident. I accomplish this by using a strategic system that allows them to chart a clear and concise course to success. This process begins with the end in mind. I ask one simple question: When do you know your business is complete? Once you know where you are going, we can then assess where you currently are in your quest. Then, we can plan to either put you back on course, if you are off course. Or plan to get you there quicker if you are currently on course. Once you have the plan, then it is time to take action and track your progress, regularly review the plan and make the appropriate course corrections to keep you on track.

I am able to help my clients achieve their desired results by using tools in the “Tackle Box” such as the Profit Accelerator Software ™, the Leadership Dashboard, The Business Health Check and the Painted Picture. Each coaching session is designed to help my client move forward toward their goals and close the gaps they have identified.

Whether in one to one coaching or if you are part of one of my groups, you will reach you will be able to grow your business in the business you have always dreamed of.

Successful training and learning is not confined to a classroom. In fact, the Teach Your Business to Fish programs combine leadership best practices with hands-on, fun experiences to embed these skills and techniques into the participants.

Which leadership skills will be taught in Teach Your Business to Fish?

R: Build and Leverage RELATIONSHIPS
E: EQUIP yourself and your team for success
E: Instill a winning and ETHICAL attitude
L: Build LEADERS around you

Each day starts with a tasty breakfast before hitting the water. Then, it’s time for professional development unlike any other. From 8 am to 4 pm, your team learns to fish while learning how to apply key leadership traits to not only the team on the boat, but also at the office. After a full day of activities, participants return to the hotel for a short break, followed by a carefully prepared dinner and then either a group discussion or a seminar. So not only are attendees receiving training and learning during the day, they also have the opportunity to step back into a boardroom setting to re-examine the lessons learned. This combination of traditional learning with action-packed, hands-on experiences helps bring theories to life.

Amazingly, your team will have so much fun, they’ll almost feel guilty. However, our leadership lessons are carefully orchestrated into each day’s program to ensure every company gets a measurable return on investment.

Whether your team is a group of novice fishers or ambitious anglers, Teach Your Business to Fish takes a fresh approach to professional development and delivers real results.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Before I began coaching I was not in a very good place in life. I was confused as to why I was stuck in such a bad place both personally and professionally. I couldn’t seem to get out of my own way. The more I tried to push the universe in the direction that I wanted it to go, the more it seemed to be pushing back 10 times harder. I finally had come to the conclusion that the way I was doing things simply was not working. At the time I met Mike I had been coaching with someone else for about a year. With lukewarm results, I felt that it was time to crank up the volume on my learning curve. I needed to be more focused on my overall attitude towards life, my businesses, and especially my marketing approach.

After a short period of time, (and some resistance from myself) I really started to understand that it was my thoughts, beliefs, and my reactions that were responsible for the things that were happening in my life and businesses. There was lots of work to do… Mike and I quickly established an incredible working relationship and have been working with one another ever since. More importantly, Mike and I have become friends over the past couple of years. Friends are not something that I come by easily in life and I can say Mike truly has my best interest at heart both professionally and personally. He has helped me grow both as a person and as a leader by:

  • 145% growth our first year of working together in the medical facility
  • 130% growth in my beauty salon the first year of working together
  • Coaching helps me see business from a different and more philosophical perspective
  • MOST importantly, it helps me see who I have to be in order to achieve my goals.

Michael Rager volunteered to assist WHCC as it assembled a committee to host its first Chick-fil-a Leadercast Event in 2012. Mike’s knowledge of the event, his energy and contacts helped WHCC exceed its goals, despite our late start doing a new thing. With his continuing help on an active committee, we are projecting more than 300% growth for 2013.

Recognizing organizational weaknesses displayed in the 2012 process, Mike agreed to join the Board and then offered a continuing quarterly Board Development series to help drive our organization towards our stated goals. Early returns are positive and WHCC’s Board is pleased that Mike is demonstrating such leadership as we grow our annual budget and outreach capability.

Mike has been involved in our outreach to men for over 3 years serving in several leadership roles within our organization. Mike’s unique ability to give strong action-oriented leadership while being friendly, inspiring and motivating has been a great asset to our team. I can recommend Mike to any organization needing to identify the concrete action items needed to take their organization to the next level.

As a bookkeeper it is my business to help business owners understand their financials and to some extent act as a sounding board for them. As a successful business owner of my second business I was sure I knew all there was to know about owning a business. I could not have been more wrong. Thankfully just when needed, I met Mike. Mike offered insight and ah ha moments, you know the point when you say, “I knew that, I am just not doing it” Working with Mike as a coach opened my eyes and mind to new thoughts and ideas and after just 6 months my business was healthy enough to sell, Thanks Mike!
