Coaching Step One:
Cultivating Client Self-awareness
with Mike Thompson, MBA, MSIO, LEED AP

Listen as Mike shares how to work with your clients to develop their HVSE (High-value Self-esteem) based on self-efficacy development and self-concept clarity (SCC) as opposed to self-esteem in the usual sense of what a person perceives others to think about them. His coaching interests are in helping others identify their true selves, strengths, needs, and motivations, and combining those to make goals clear and goal-directed behavior rewarding and motivating in itself.

Mike is currently leveraging the power of the Internet to satisfy this interest with MicroMentor, a non-profit all-volunteer consulting platform that pairs experts with those in need of support. Mike is a military veteran with an MBA and a Master’s in Industrial/Organizational Psychology and writing his first non-fiction book on the detriments of our society’s focus on simply meeting performance goals in lieu of truly mastering whatever we undertake. Mike will explain why he believes so strongly in strength based coaching and having a growth mindset instead of a fixed mindset.
