Michael is a corporate Organizational Development Consultant, Communications Specialist, and Leadership Trainer. He has been teaching and leading transformational trainings and workshops for over 40 years.
Michael’s former consulting company, Mastery of Management International (MMI), focused on bringing heart and meaning into the workplace. For over 25 years he worked with Fortune 500 companies, NGOs and social profit institutions throughout Europe and North America.
Michael started his career as the sales manager and director of marketing for the first commercial personal computer company, IMSAI Computers. As the company grew and met competition from Apple and IBM, a marketing plan evolved to absorb rather than compete and IMSAI Computers became Computerland. Shortly after that Michael left to invest in and help Roy Alper create Independent Power Company (IPC), a successful consulting company that focused on growing and advising independent energy companies in building alternative energy power plants. In 1981 he sold his shares in IPC and founded MMI where he worked until 2006.
Michael has combined his training in communications, gestalt, gender reconciliation, meditation, movement, shamanism, and philosophy to bring a totally unique approach to his in depth personal, relational, and organizational coaching and teaching. He has an MSOD from Pepperdine University and completed the 2-year post-graduate program in International Organizational Systems Development (ISOD) through the Cleveland Gestalt Institute and IGOR in Germany where he focused on cross cultural integration and team empowerment.
Sandra is an educator, clinical counselor & consultant who grew up in the rainforests of British Columbia, riding bare back through ancient cedars. There, with her horses, she learned another way to listen and lead, a way she’s been teaching in schools and organizations for over 30 years.
Known as a belief builder and motivational teacher, Sandra is a transformational catalyst who debunks the myth that change is painful and slow. As a lifelong learner she has earned Bachelor’s Degrees in Science and Education and a Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology. She was a school teacher and counsellor for over twenty years and has been a psychotherapist since 1996.
Her extensive background in consciousness studies, belief change psychology and equine guided learning have inspired invitations to teach and lecture around the world.
She has worked with power companies including Microsoft, and helped gifted innovators step into their power. She has been featured at medical symposiums alongside Nobel Prize Winner - Candace Pert and thought leader scientist - David Suzuki. Most recently, at the request of Dr. Bruce Lipton, author of The Biology of Belief, Sandra has been teaching belief change programs at a local prison, helping a group of men serving life sentences break free from the prison of their limiting beliefs.
Though she has studied with many incredible people, Sandra says her most influential teachers have been horses, whom she credits for taking her, and her clients, to new levels of awareness and growth.
Sandra is a potent ally and experienced guide for those ready to move beyond the status quo. Her mentorship programs, transformational workshops and laser sharp focus have helped individuals and teams clarify their goals and harness the power of their subconscious minds to achieve personal and professional success - often in the company of horses.
What people say about Michael & Sandra:
Michael Stone's work provides a direct entree to altering the culture of an organization and effecting significant change in a very short period of time. What impressed me most about Michael’s courses was how “difficult” employees were able to align with management on the larger picture and transform conflict into clear working agreements. For management teams seeking to revitalize the spirit of their organization and build strong, mutually supportive teams, I can whole-heartily recommend his work.
former Chief of Staff
for the California Environmental Protection Agency
“Author, speaker, leader and Organization Development expert, Michael Stone provides an incredible perspective on how to use every day stress to connect deeply with oneself and others in a way that creates organizational unity. This alone is greatly responsible for the results that happen in our work teams. While attending his course on,” Presence, Power and Performance,” I was introduced to practices, mindsets and tools that have been the foundation of my leadership vision and practice for years.”
VP of Operations, Dignity Health
Michael Stone knows how to bring people together in support of an aligned vision! My department was comprised of 6 different nationalities and languages, and was in continuous conflict. He came into our group and taught us how to stop, look and listen. His work created greater understanding, appreciation and focus, not to mention they were a lot happier...
Manager European Union
Sandra Wallin worked wonders by guiding 12 hardened Microsoft warriors through an eye-opening exercise with a horse. She then facilitated an inclusive, practical discussion right then and there that helped us document and apply our learning to our everyday work environment. It was fast, fun development that I expect we will refer to for a long time to come.
Sandra brings a wonderful balance of wisdom, compassion and candor to her Essentials for Success Program. The program is clear, concise, and interactive. She has the ability to focus in on the key issues & goals not only for the collective business, but also for the individual participant within the business. I left the course fueled with confidence and knowledge that has and is transforming my business and my life.
