Speaker Bio

Mike Lee is the founder of MindShift Labs and possesses a tremendous background spending time on the court with elite NBA stars such as MVP Steph Curry and All-Star Joel Embiid. He’s blended this experience — helping players use mindset and focus to shift their performance in an ultra-competitive environment — with mindfulness, to level up business performance and personal leadership.

 

His engaging, inspiring, and interactive programs at F500 companies and professional associations like Morgan Stanley, AmFam, Cisco, and IBM have earned rave reviews from bold, driven, and future-focused leaders. Never a canned speech, he uses a 5-step process to customize each program to deliver relevant insights and actionable strategies unique to your event theme or meeting goals.

 

Through his experience building an international basketball brand from his college apartment, and growing it while battling anxiety and depression, Mike understands the challenges leaders face in this rapidly changing, uncertain and demanding world.

 

Drawing on the latest research from neuroscience, sports psychology, and personal experience, he’s shared stories and practical exercises — across the United States, Europe, and Asia — to help people find their own inner power and poise to thrive in business and life.

 

Mike is also the author of the internationally sold book, UN/TRAIN and the host of The MindShift Lab.

    Never before have leaders faced more things at once. A global pandemic, economic uncertainty and a remote-first work environment have created the toughest leadership crisis of our time. During these pivotal moments, a generation of leaders and their businesses will be defined by how they decide to show up.

Keynote Topic #3

    Bounce Back

    Navigate Uncertainty, Shift Adversity, And Lead The Way Forward

    Demanding hours from work, countless distractions, and a constant need for more can drive our minds so far into the future that we take our focus away from the only thing we control. The present moment. Which is the only place we actually have to advance the organization’s mission.

    But, by building a foundation in mindfulness, we unlock the emotional intelligence and build the resiliency needed to thrive in a rapidly changing, demanding and uncertain world.

    Drawing on the latest research from mindfulness, neuroscience and personal experience, Mike shares stories, strategies and practical exercises to lower stress, develop resilience and deliver bottom line results.

        “As a veteran producer and educator in the meetings and events space, I can say without hesitation that Mike is the easiest, most empathetic, and most conscientious speaker I’ve ever worked with. From our first pre-event call to our post-event debrief, it was clear Mike was invested in our meeting goals,customizing his message to help us best fulfill them, and then following up to ensure he had. On stage, he’s as authentic and accessible as he is off, personifying the heart-centered, mindful leadership approach he talks about so passionately. A talk, by the way, that at this particular time, is very relevant, and exactly what executives need to hear to lead contemporary (and future) workforces.”

        ”Mike, your keynote speaker session at the recent NHRMA conference was great! Mindfulness, and meditation, specifically, was more of a buzzword to me heading into the session. You took it from a buzzword to something real, tangible. More importantly, your examples inspired me to action. Thank you!

        Mike was very responsive during our communications, which is always a positive in my book, especially when trying to book and plan with a speaker. Mike also took the time to learn more about the audience before the keynote presentation. Not only did he speak with two of our members a few weeks prior to the event, he also attended sessions at the conference to tie some of the messaging into his talk.

        “Mike was literally the perfect choice to kick off our event and set the tone for the rest of the day with Jesse Itzler and Mike Tyson. The basketball stories had takeaways for a general audience, even if you don’t follow the game, and left everyone wanting more. I couldn’t believe how fast the hour went by!
