Bridging his background in basketball leadership and performance — training some of basketball’s 1% — with mindfulness and emotional intelligence, Mike Lee helps high-performing leaders master the psychology needed to lead and perform in a 2020 world.

Through his experience building an international basketball brand from his college apartment, and growing it while beating the heroin-like withdrawal symptoms of pharmaceutical medication, Mike understands the challenges leaders face.

In the basketball world, players must have the fundamental skills to execute the team’s strategy. In the business world, it’s no different. People need foundational skills like self-awareness, presence, and resilience to constantly adapt, perform and create in this time of unprecedented change.

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

He is the founder of Thrive3, a basketball training company that “creates game-changing experiences that crossover from the court to life”, where he’s worked with players like NBA MVP Stephen Curry, All-Star Joel Embiid and Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon. Mike is also the author of the internationally sold book, UN/TRAIN.

Strategies and Mindsets of Basketball’s Elite To Elevate Business Performance

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

The challenge we all face today is that our work environments are overwhelming 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. Ending this program with a massive call to action, “Mastery” leaves the audience with an inspiring message that impacts them long after he leaves the stage.

Key Takeaways

• Discover what separated Kobe Bryant beyond his basketball skills that apply to workplace performance
• Learn the strategy to leverage adversity as a catalyst for business growth
• Discover breakthrough insights on what drives elite performers you can leverage in your business
• Learn how to minimize distraction to place your attention and energy on what you can control


The Future of Leadership

After personally spending 15 years with basketballs 1% — from Steph Curry to NBA lottery picks — one thing became clear. You’ll never maximize your ability to lead or perform until you master your mind.

We are living in a world of constant distractions and unprecedented disruption creating more burnout, stress, and disengagement than we have ever seen. It’s preventing us from leading with presence, creativity, and joy, ultimately placing a chokehold on business performance.

Most would agree that your business is a reflection of your leadership. When the leader stops growing the business stops growing.

Leveraging a background in basketball leadership and performance, Mike uses a mix of personal stories and practical exercises, designed to equip you with the skills, strategies, and tools to lead through the chaos and unpredictability of this 2020 world.

Key Takeaways

• Develop the psychology needed to lead in the most fast-paced era humankind has ever faced
• The fundamental mindset shift needed for continuous and never-ending business growth
• 5 Keys to Cultivating Massive Resilience to overcome setbacks
• Learn the performance strategies and mindsets of basketball’s 1% to drive business performance

How to Bounce Back and Win The Battleground of Your Mind

Demanding hours from work, countless distractions, and a constant need for more can drive our minds so far into the future that we take our focus away from the only thing we control. The present moment. Which is the only place we have to advance the organization’s mission.

But, by building a foundation in mindfulness, we unlock the emotional intelligence and build the resiliency needed to thrive in a rapidly changing, demanding and uncertain world.

Drawing on the latest research from mindfulness, neuroscience and personal experience, Mike shares stories, strategies, and practical exercises to lower stress, develop resilience and deliver bottom-line results.

Key Takeaways

• Identify and adopt the foundational belief needed for massive resilience
• How to cultivate the emotional antidote to workplace stress
• Actionable strategies that immediately impact business
• 5 Steps to develop 60 Second Resilience
