I provide high energy, interactive, and empowering keynote addresses, hands on skill building workshops (when you want to dig deeper into an area than a keynote), and one on one coaching programs which inspire people to cultivate their leadership using personal, strategic, and actionable strategies. My keynotes and workshops are eye opening, interesting, and practical, and my coaching strategic and focused. My goal is to use all my tools to help you, my client, to develop your leadership, become a stronger (and happier) producer, and in turn help develop the leadership of those around you as well. Many of my recent work has centered around my book, Lead Me Out to the Ballgame: Stories and Strategies to Develop Major League Leadership. The book, as well as my presentations based on it, explores the "Ten Bases of Leadership" which were identified from over 100 interviews with Major League Baseball players, managers, and executives. Through the stories and strategies I share with my audience, participants, and clients, I help people in all walks of life to become Major League Leaders. Leadership is fun, it's fun to take hold of your passion and help others to do the same! What do I enjoy about my work? I love seeing the aha moments when I present keynotes, love to help clients develop actionable strategies to improve their organizations, and love to help people in all walks of life to become stronger contributors in all they do. I love to use quotes in my presentations, so I'll share one of mine.. "Realizing your potential, reaching your potential, and helping others to realize and reach theirs as well...that's leadership!" - Howard C. Fero, PhD, The Leadership DocSee more

My name is Michael Olivieri and I have overcome a life filled with severe adversity. From an early age I had to deal with alcoholic and drug addicted parents who were abusive to each other as well as myself. Diagnosed early on with severe ADD, I was placed in hyperactive schools and labeled as below average intellect. When my mother got into another abusive relationship, the mans abuse of me led me to entering foster care for three years. In those three years, I was placed in 10 different foster homes. When I came out of foster care the abuse and neglect did not end. I had to deal with my mothers addictions and extreme lack of parenting. Before the age of 32 I had to deal with the death of my father to cirrhosis of the liver (I was 17), the death of my mother to AIDS related complications (I was 28) and my best friend (and most stable relationship in my life) passing away of cancer when I was 31. Despite the tremendous odds stacked against me, I became part of just 2% of the population. Only 2% of kids who were in foster care have never been to jail and obtained a bachelors degree. I graduated a major university Magna Cum Laude and travel across the country spreading my story of perseverance and never giving up despite the tremendous odds. Thousands of case workers, foster & as-risk teenagers and foster parents have heard my message.See more
