Mike Lee Speaker Biography

Mike Lee is the founder of MindShift Labs and possesses a tremendous background spending time on the court with elite NBA stars such as MVP Steph Curry and All-Star Joel Embiid. He’s blended this experience — helping players use mindset and focus to shift their performance in an ultra-competitive environment — with mindfulness, to level up business performance and personal leadership.

His engaging, inspiring, and interactive programs at F500 companies and professional associations like Morgan Stanley, AmFam, Cisco, SHRM and IBM have earned rave reviews from bold, driven, and future-focused leaders. Never a canned speech, he uses a 5-step process to customize each program to deliver relevant insights and actionable strategies unique to your event theme or meeting goals.

Through his experience building an international basketball brand from his college apartment, and growing it while battling anxiety and depression, Mike understands the challenges leaders face in this rapidly changing, uncertain, and demanding world.

Drawing on the latest research from neuroscience, sports psychology, and personal experience, he’s shared stories and practical exercises — across the United States, Europe, and Asia — to help people find their own inner power and poise to thrive in business and life.

Mike is also the author of the internationally sold book, UN/TRAIN and the host of The MindShift Lab.

How Bold, Driven and Future-Focused Leaders Can Drive Engagement, Win The War For Talent, and Create A Culture Of Belonging

The future of leadership is more human than ever. In 2020 challenges lingering in the background like mental health, purpose and belonging immediately rose to the surface. In 2021 the Great Resignation followed leaving companies with challenges that can’t be solved long-term simply with a pay increase. Today, the aftermath of the pandemic, virtual work environments, the looming recession, and the Great Resignation are front and center for leaders. Simply put, Covid changed how we work, our relationship to work and expectations of leaders across all industries. And senior leaders, emerging leaders and leaders without a title need to be equipped with internal skills to navigate this new world of work.

Future of leadership keynote speaker Mike Lee has blended a diverse background of entrepreneurship, personal adversity and experiences with some of the world’s top performing athletes to create a counter-cultural approach to leadership. He’s shared this methodology with Fortune 500 companies and leading industry associations like IBM, AmFam, Cisco, Morgan Stanley and SHRM.

This program is designed to equip leaders with the purpose-driven, future-focused, mindfully aware and heart-centered leadership skills to meet the moment and prepare for what’s next. These research backed competencies are proven to elevate engagement, attract top talent, improve well-being and create a culture of belonging. Ultimately helping organizations sustain peak performance, drive growth and create their future in the new economy.

Inside Leaders Will Learn How To:

• Activate personal and organizational purpose to drive employee engagement
• Shift from outcome-driven to legacy-driven leadership
• Utilize practical mindfulness skills to elevate high-performance and well-being
• Leverage heart-centered leadership for psychological safety and belonging
• Attract top talent and give yourself an edge

Counter-Cultural Performance Principles That Crossover From The Court To Business and Life

In this high-impact program, Mike shares personal stories, proven strategies, and powerful mindsets he’s learned from times on the court with basketball’s elite like MVP Steph Curry, All-Star Joel Embiid, and Rookie of The Year Malcolm Brogdon. All, of which directly translate to business performance.

The challenge we all face today is that our work environments are overwhelmingly disruptive, rapidly changing, and increasingly fragmented — creating the biggest barrier to success. The constant battleground of our mind for the present moment. Which is the only place we can take action to impact our future. Just like elite performers block out the opposing crowd in a packed arena, Mike teaches you how to lock in on the task at hand in the middle of chaos.

The audience will walk away with actionable strategies — from NBA’s Elite — that can be implemented immediately, to unlock the human potential inside of you and deliver world-class performance in any arena. Game Changers leaves the audience with an inspiring message that impacts them long after he leaves the stage.

• Learn a Steph Curry mindset for activating high-performance
• Discover breakthrough insights on what drives elite performers you can leverage in your business
• Learn how to master distractions in order to place your attention and energy on what you can control

How to beat burnout, elevate performance and cultivate well-being in a volatile, uncertain, and complex world

A global pandemic, overwhelming uncertainty and a virtual world has accelerated our country’s epidemic of mental health, stress and burnout. According to Gallup’s State of The Workplace report employees have never been more stressed, which the American Institute of Stress says is costing US businesses $300 billion dollars per year. Harvard Business Review research also shows that we are only present about 50% of the day. That means in our forty-hour workweek we’re actually only productive twenty hours. Simply put, this stress pulls us out of the present moment.

In this program mindfulness keynote speaker Mike Lee demonstrates that the present moment is where high-performance, engagement and well-being all exist. We spend time in the past stuck in guilt, anger or regret. Or we’re in the future in anxiety, planning or worry. But the best thing you can do for your future-self, the future of your organization and the future of people you lead is to be fully in the present moment.

The bottom line is this. Technology advances, information, and distractions are not going to slow down. Our external environment is not going to change. The change has to come from the place within. Mindfulness keynote speaker Mike Lee introduces this through the lens of personal adversity and sports performance to connect to the audience in a vulnerable, relatable and authentic way. He explains how by building a foundation in mindfulness we unlock the emotional IQ, develop the self-awareness and cultivate the resilience needed to thrive in this demanding, rapidly changing and uncertain world.

● How to incorporate mindfulness into your daily routine to build the skill
● Access the power of the Decision Gap to lead from your values
● Practical application to elevate high-performance, decrease stress and improve emotional resilience

Drawing on the latest research from sports psychology, neuroscience, and mindfulness, Mike shares exercises he’s personally embraced to lead through adversity.

When combined with his inspiring storytelling approach, they create an experience that has helped people across the United States, Europe, and Asia unleash and unlock the resilient leader within themselves during these unprecedented times.
