However you answer these questions, an executive mentor like Dr. Mike Armour puts you on a fast-track to greater success and fulfillment.
A former college president, Navy captain, CEO of an international non-profit, Congressional candidate, and minister for large urban churches, Mike knows firsthand the challenges of demanding leadership positions. And he has helped hundreds of emerging and established leaders reach their most cherished goals and aspirations.
In addition, he has been a confidant and advisor to business owners, corporate leaders, and professional specialists for over 30 years. Outside of career and corporate goals, many people engage Mike to mentor them through decisions to make life more balanced, enriched, and rewarding.
After decades of service as both a leader and a personal mentor, Mike draws on a vast storehouse of accumulated wisdom and experience. Most importantly, he is a superb listener whose follow-on questions guide a conversation effortlessly into valued insights that might otherwise go unnoticed.
