Michael O’Brien is the CEO of Peloton Coaching and Consulting, where he helps sales and marketing professionals conquer their inner story and have better conversations with others.
“They were my peloton. They helped us all move forward together. And when we are working together, we’re going faster.” – Michael O’Brien on the group of people who helped him in his journey
Pursuing Complete Success
Many people portray great success on the outside but deep inside their inner critics tell them that they’re not. They struggle and don’t have peace within. Sales and marketing executives are not an exemption.
“The foundation of every great conversation is curiosity. It is about discovery and is the entry point for empathy.” – Michael O’Brien
Earlier in Michael’s career, he had all the “markers of success” as commonly defined. He had the car, the title, and money. But he did not necessarily have the sense of happiness and fulfillment.
Success Starts Within
Michael is a lifelong cyclist. He loves the fun and sense of freedom it provides. But in 2001, a car suddenly slammed on him as he went on a 20-mile route.
It became a major turning point of his life. He decided to change the story he was telling himself and just be true to who he is as a human being. Since then, he shifted his mindset towards success.
Shift for Better Tomorrows
Michael shares his inspiring story in his book Shift: Creating Better Tomorrows: Winning at Work and in Life.
He transitioned out of corporate America and launched his own business. To this day, he continues to partner with executives to help them become victorious both in their lives and in their careers.
