Over a storied thirty-eight-year career in leadership positions and as a credentialed life coach, Mike Barnes has always been in the pursuit of continuous improvement at being an authentic servant leader. By striving to always learn, show the courage to be vulnerable, and to serve those around him with mindfulness and intentionality, his goal was to consistently build trust and empower the teams he served to achieve more than they ever thought was possible.
