"Change one thing, and change your world!" As a team of two professional trainer-consultants, individually or together, we offer over 90 years combined experience in personal and organizational development and issue resolution. Dr. Myke Merrill's book, "Why Do People Act That Way? (And What Can I Do About It?) and Michael E. Wilson's training processes combine to provide insights, skills, perspective and humor to any event. The principles are universal, and the applications can be specifically designed with you to accomplish your specific desired outcomes with any kind of audience: business professionals, parents, coaches, service providers, people in abuse or drug recovery (and their support staff), educators, adolescents, elder care families or providers, and many others.
The central content we bring is based on how people perceive reality and find their part in it. Four complexes provide the foundation of human awareness: Perceptions (ten of them), Emotions (five systems), Motivations (five aspects), and Behaviors (two rails.) The content can be specialized to the specific outcomes each Event is targeted to reach.
Myke and Mike are both professional speakers and trainers who have decades of experience engaging people who possess every variable imaginable. East coast Myke has been a local pastor in the same community for 40 years. West coast Mike has been a pastor in several communities in Washington and Oregon for about 20 years. East coast Myke served as an adjunct instructor at a small college in Rochester, NY for 29 years. West coast Mike served in several key capacities in the Wenatchee, WA school district for 19 years. East coast Myke was a regional and national director of youth ministry development for a denomination for 20 years, running dozens of events for as many as 4000 students. West coast Mike developed the training mechanisms for many of those events and all the staff involved. East coast Myke has written 23 books, for use in specialized training events. West coast Mike has written east coast Myke off as kind of a geeky nerd who knows a lot but needs a good translator... They're great friends and bring a huge spark to every event that can ignite a blazing fire of passion for change, improvement and effectiveness.
Myke and Mike can speak universal concepts and principles in numerous languages: Businessperson, Familyspeak, three dialects of Americanism (Boomer, Millennial and Gen-Z), Urban Street, Rural Country, Educationese, Academia, and Bad Pun, just to name a few. (East coast Myke has a working knowledge of English, Spanish, American Sign Language, French, German, biblical Hebrew, biblical Greek, and Latin - and West coast Mike is fluent in all the rest.) They prefer to work as a team, offering keynotes, break-outs, Q&As, and collaboration sessions. They regard themselves as twins born to different mothers on different coasts in different months. But the same year.
One speaker is good, to be sure. But two together? Unforgettable. Effective. Worth it.
Holmes without Watson? The Georgia Line without Florida? Ernie without Bert? Myke and Mike will help you make your event everything you are dreaming it can be. Everything it will be.
Extra Note: We use a Live Polling system in our presentations, so participants keep their cell phones in hand, connected into the poll system, and continuously engaged with questions, opinions, viewpoints, and responses. Participants of all ages thoroughly enjoy being connected - AND they're not surfing the Internet trying to hide their phones from being seen.
