Mike Lee is a globally recognized keynote speaker, #1 best-selling author, and coach who shares high-performance leadership lessons from inside the hearts and minds of NBA’s elite. Through his work, he supports individual contributors, leaders, and organizations in elevating engagement, winning the war for talent, and creating cultures of belonging in a world of disruption.

For 15 years he spent time with basketball’s 1% including NBA MVPs Steph Curry and Joel Embiid. Blindsided by adversity withdrawing from a pharmaceutical medication, he dove deep into mindfulness and Eastern wisdom. Now, he combines sports psychology with ancient philosophies to help people meet the moment and prepare for what’s next — whatever the future holds — through the power of presence.

Mike's engaging, inspiring, and interactive programs at F500 companies and professional associations like Morgan Stanley, AmFam, Cisco, SHRM, and IBM have earned rave reviews from bold and driven leaders. He's delivered this approach through keynotes in packed ballrooms of a thousand, virtually to a global audience, and workshops with 10-person senior leadership teams. Mike has been described as "the easiest and most conscientious speaker I've worked with", "the perfect choice to kick off our event" and having "an impeccable ability to tell a story".

Drawing on the latest research from neuroscience, sports psychology, and personal experience, he's shared stories and practical exercises - across the world - to help people find their own inner power and poise to thrive in business and life. His #1 best-seller, New Rules For The Future of Leadership, has been endorsed by the likes of New York Times best-selling authors, thought leaders, and other Fortune 500 executives.

"Mike was literally the perfect choice to kick off our event and set the tone for the rest of the day with Jesse Itzler and Mike Tyson.

We would have him back in a heartbeat!"

"Listening to and learning from Mike has not only been a positive experience but also a powerful one. In a world of change, he has a knack for simple tools that help you focus on a path forward. It's been great to connect with him over the past year, both one-on-one and in larger groups – he's able to keep everyone engaged and it will be great to see him in-person one day soon."

Richard Curtis, CEO

His content, stories, and mindsets could not be more relevant at this time!"

Whitnee V. Bullerwell, Deputy Director
Arkansas Municipal League

Jeff Johnson, CEO
1st National Bank

"Mike, your keynote speaker session at the recent NHRMA conference was great! Mindfulness, and meditation, specifically, was more of a buzzword to me heading into the session. You took it from a buzzword to something real, tangible. More importantly, your examples inspired me to action. Thank you!"

Carrie Schleicher, HR Manger

"Mike effectively introduced the basics of meditation and demonstrated to my team how it was applicable in their daily professional lives. The stories he shares illustrated how mindfulness can decrease stress, improve the ability to focus and work more efficiently. His presentation had many practical takeaways."

Mitchell Stein, VP
Beyer Stein Group at Morgan Stanley

"Best presentation by far. I could not take notes fast enough. The definitions of mindfulness, meditation and EQ are so helpful."


"Wow, you took my breath away today. Your talk was extremely powerful! Exactly what I needed to hear today!"


"This is exactly what has been missing from our leadership style during this pandemic…this inspires me to work with my team to move through adversity."


"When I hear Mike speak I’m always taking away concepts to use with my NBA and corporate clients."

Rainer Meisterjahn
Peak Performance Psychologist

"Mike’s guidance, mindsets, and strategies were instrumental in my success on and off the court. Practicing these strategies has been a big driver in ultimately fulfilling my childhood dream of playing in the NBA. Like so many other concepts, there is a huge crossover from what applies in the sports world to leadership, organizational performance, and personal transformation."

Matt Thomas
Chicago Bulls

"Mike is one of my go-to resources for expanding my own practice and personal training in mindfulness. He has a powerful personal story that accompanies the keynote and his book is a great addendum to help people jump-start their own practice."

Ryan Estis
International Business Speaker

"I appreciated your authenticity, your vulnerability, and your humbleness. Your sharing of personal examples brought many of the concepts alive."

John Graham, CMO
Dutch Bros Coffee

"As someone who’s built, led, and sold a multimillion-dollar business, I know the skills and strategies Mike is teaching are invaluable."

Jim Weatherly, Entrepreneur

"Mike was very responsive during our communications, which is always a positive in my book, especially when trying to book and plan with a speaker. Mike also took the time to learn more about the audience before the keynote presentation. Not only did he speak with two of our members a few weeks prior to the event, he also attended sessions at the conference to tie some of the messaging into his talk."

Chelsea Andujar, Director of Meetings and Events

"Mike’s message on the power of the present moment was incredibly impactful. He spent time upfront getting to understand our business, people, and industry and was able to seamlessly tie his talk into our North America Annual Meeting theme. Mike brought a unique combination of energy and compassion that really connected with our people. And, I know his message not only impacted our people’s lives but will support us in reaching our strategic initiatives."

James Rooney, Managing Director
ALPLA North America
