“From direct experience and observation over his long career, I can say that Dr. Michael Sales has deep understanding of the key factors for the success and failure of organizations and the enablers of sustainability. His extensive consulting and coaching at all levels, from hourly workers to top leaders, in diverse organizations, including small family businesses, Fortune 500 companies, manufacturers, knowledge creators, religious organizations and hospitals, has informed his insight about the elements for maintenance of organizational health.
Dr. Sales is not about fashionable techniques aimed at, for example, time management, project management, quality control, which are, of course, all useful and valuable in a healthy organization. Rather, he is dedicated to the core human interactions and outlooks that provide the liveliness and confidence for an organization’s ability to adopt new methods, to react positively to environmental change, and to anticipate the future.
And he loves to talk! His educational background (Harvard School of Education with Argyris) and his time spent with the likes of Oshry (Organizational Workshop/ Power and Leadership Conference) forged his dedication to the improvement of organizational life with the attendant uplifting of its members. All this makes for a speaker with accurate and valuable content delivered with passion. So what’s not to like?”
