Michael Neill is an internationally renowned transformative teacher, author, broadcaster, and speaker, described as having the unique ability to “blend the sacred with the profane”. The inside-out understanding at the heart of his work challenges the cultural mythology that stress, pressure, and other symptoms of “seriousness” are a necessary part of adaptation and growth in business or indeed any area of life.

In his role as CEO of Genius Catalyst Inc. since its inception in the UK in 1990 to its incorporation in the USA in 2007, Michael has spearheaded its growth from consultancy to a multi-media organisation delivering services to tens of thousands of loyal customers each year through live training, online courses, and self-study programs.

He has also spent more than three decades as a coach, adviser, friend, mentor, and creative spark plug to founders, CEO’s, celebrities, royalty, and those who are up to something in the world. His global client base is wide and diverse, having served clients in North America, UK, Europe, and the Middle East in the fields of investment, sales, energy, manufacturing, the entertainment and media industry, and more. He has been consistently ranked alongside Jack Canfield, Tony Robbins, and other legends in the field as one of the top 30 coaching thought leaders in the world, and continues to run a small private practice working with high performers in their fields of expertise.

A gifted communicator, Michael has authored six best-selling books including Creating the Impossible, The Inside-Out Revolution, The Space Within, and Supercoach. His books have been translated into more than 25 languages, and his public talks, retreats and seminars have touched and transformed lives at the United Nations and in over 60 countries and on six continents around the world. His TEDx talks, ‘Why Aren’t We Awesomer?’and ‘Can a TEDx Talk Really Change the World?’ have been viewed by over two million people around the world and his blog and podcast, Caffeine for the Soul, has been entertaining and inspiring audiences around the world for more than 20 years.

Back on Course

There comes a point, at least for me anyway, where the journey of self help becomes entrenched in the notion that I’m broken and need to be fixed. In addition, there’s “another level” or as some say, another layer of the onion skin to peel away. For me, the idea of self help as a lifestyle through the above mentioned lenses, became exhausting. Realizing that I was spinning my wheels in the idea that something has to be fixed all the time, I quit all manner of self help, growth, spiritual healing…etc. in fact, I began to scoff at all of it. One problem with quitting I didn’t anticipate: my life would become stagnant and indeed it has. I mean, Up until I stumbled upon this podcast, I felt as though I was a ship that was in a storm and then suddenly, I was in dead calm “ions”. Drifting aimlessly in an ocean of existential poly styrene. Then along comes a trade wind; this podcast. Not only are the sails filling, there’s a magical compass provided in these wonderful weekly themed talks. I’m back on course! This time the journey isn’t about trauma drama, it’s intentional and not. My mind is a sextant but the stars of possibility keep moving. Currents change, as do winds. Ships leak too. “Oh well!” Just keep sailing and enjoy every part of the journey! Thank you so much for these talks, sir. So powerful and meaningful. Much appreciated.
