About our Guest
Speaker, Author, Expert
Michael Anderson, M.B.A., M.A., founder of The Executive JOY Institute, specializes in leading competitive, driven people through the same transformation that he’s been through, bringing joy and happiness into their lives.
By the age of thirty-five Michael had played professional basketball (yes, he’s really six-foot nine!), founded three international software companies and partied at the Playboy Mansion—but he simply wasn’t happy. Hard drugs, alcohol, a divorce and a nasty lawsuit brought him to a low point. A quest for change included earning a master’s degree in Spiritual Psychology from the prestigious University of Santa Monica.
Michael founded The Executive JOY Institute to teach others the same real-life tools he used to change his own life. Through speaking, writing, radio shows, and video blogs, he elevates competitive, driven people, teaching them to live happier, more authentic and fulfilled lives and showing them how to reduce stress, overcome self-limiting beliefs and improve relationships.
His book The Experiment: Discover a Revolutionary Way to Manage Stress and Achieve Work-Life Balance is a #1 Bestselling Book in the “Creativity” and “Business Leadership Training” categories.
Michael has taught leaders around the world, from Panama to the Philippines to Australia and Mexico, and has worked with a broad range of clients, including Microsoft, SAP, Stanford University, Vistage, Young Presidents Organization (YPO) and Entrepreneurs Organization (EO).
