Michele Phillips President

"Hello Fabulous,

Please let me say hello. I am Michele Phillips. I am an exceptional corporate trainer, executive coach, and transformational personal coach, having successfully crafted an extraordinary life during my 23-year journey as an entrepreneur. With an illustrious career as the President of Key Performance and acclaimed author of 'Happiness is a Habit – Simple Daily Rituals That Increase Energy, Improve Well-Being, and Add Joy to Every Day' (Cedar Fort Publishing, 2013), my impact in the professional world is profound and I excel at working 1:1 with private clients too. By doing corporate and personal work, I take a stand for the "AND." My skills are fierce and don't fit into any box.

My expertise encompasses over two decades of dynamic facilitation in workshops, seminars, and coaching initiatives with Fortune 500 giants worldwide. Esteemed companies such as TAG Heuer, Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, Zoetis, Barclay's Capital, Nomura, Schott North America, Verizon Wireless, The New York State Bridge Authority, and The PGA have all benefited from my guidance and insights.

I specialize in elevating happiness and individual performance. By seamlessly integrating the latest neuroscience discoveries, habit formation principles, and positive psychology insights, I deliver a transformative formula for achieving happiness and success with infectious enthusiasm. My approach is pragmatic and laser-focused, offering immediate applicability.

My qualifications are extensive, underscored by a multitude of certifications and the mentorship of thousands of leaders and individual contributors in the realms of habit science, emotional intelligence, and leadership. My academic background includes a Master's in Organizational Development from Fordham University, alongside a coveted certification in Positive Psychology. Contributing to Consumer Health Digest as a writer has been a privilege, as has coaching high-performing leaders and individuals. Moreover, as a featured guest, I've had the honor of gracing the stages of various national television and radio programs.

A highlight in my journey occurred in August 2017, when my book emerged among Amazon's top five most sought-after self-help books. This recognition was a thrilling testament to the resonance of my message."

Corporate Expertise

I hold numerous certifications and train thousands of leaders and individuals annually on the science of habits, emotional intelligence, leadership skills, and peak performance. My experience with speaking and facilitating to both small and large executive groups is extensive. I can motivate a room filled with thousands or work one-on-one with executive coaching clients. I also offer and run exclusive executive two-to-three-day coaching retreats.

"Michele has a way of getting everyone energized and involved in the activities by breaking down barriers of shyness and skepticism instantly. She weaves creative delivery with applicable business usage — an ideal combo in the best of presenters," said Adam Shandler, Manager of Global Staffing Special Projects at Stryker.

International Presenter

As a keynote presenter, my speeches are educational, inspiring, and thought-provoking. I have an innate ability to make everyone feel included, energized, and engaged. My boundless energy will instantly grab viewers, and my can-do attitude is infectious. I am often featured on numerous national radio and television programs as an expert in creating positive habits that last.

My Inspiration

"My work is a reflection of everything that is important to me. I've been extremely fortunate in that I have spent most of my life educating myself for my business. I know what works and what doesn't, and it is my mission and my gift to share my message with as many people as possible. When a person focuses on their habits mentally, physically, spiritually, and emotionally, the result is a happier, healthier, and more successful life. While not all of us have been given the same opportunities, experiences, and privileges in life, we all have the same access to Happiness. It is in our hands, and I want to help lead the way.
