Founder’s Personal Statement
Hi, my name is Michael Samson.
I pursue progress and founded INSPIRE to support others seek and generate significant progress for themselves, and the organizations they lead.
Progress is the accomplishment of key business results, leveraging the development and application of powerful skills and processes. Progress is also about the creation of, and adaptation to, an evolving world.
Michael is a business consultant who provides team development and leadership development programs across Canada.
In witnessing as a senior leader, a large highly successful company stumble and fall through an absence of trust, he committed himself to supporting organizations create a different outcome.
Michael as a leader demonstrated the miss-steps he witnessed beforehand; appearing invulnerable, displaying reactivity, and not applying systems thinking to dilemmas. Recognizing this in himself, he increased his personal and professional development efforts and now continually re-commits to his purpose: “assist people develop; demonstrating expertise, courage and kindness.”
Having completed a Masters degree in Leadership & Organization Development in Seattle, US (Leadership Institute of Seattle, (LIOS)) Michael compliments his business experience with academic study in the methodologies for successful organization and people development. Michael’s background includes a Bachelor’s degree in Commerce, specializing in Human Resource Management and also Marketing at the University of Otago, New Zealand.
His intent as leader of INSPIRE is to support leaders and organizations accomplish greatness as they define this for themselves.
