How resilient are your business relationships?

Take my assessment

I’m here to help you see your business relationships differently.

Hi, I’m Michael Papanek

In my 30-year career leading and serving high performance teams, I have found one thing to be true:

The best leaders work collaboratively, decisively and successfully by building resilient relationships.

When leaders do this, magical things begin to happen: customers, partners and employees want to stay connected to the business. Drama gets dialed way down and satisfaction goes off the charts—which all translates into more fun, more profits and more high performing teams.

You might say this is my life’s work.

I come to it partly by birth—my maternal grandfather was the legendary Kurt Lewin, the psychologist known globally as the father of organizational development. My mother was a professor, my father a doctor—whose family experiences in the Holocaust motivated them to work on social issues. I grew up surrounded by scientific approaches to an array of social issues.

But my later life experiences—as a musician, a sailor, a dad and a consultant—are what solidified my belief in the power of resilience in life and in business.

I started practicing and studying this first as a systems engineer at EDS during their merger with General Motors (talk about a petri dish) and then later across a broad array of companies and relationships in my role as head of Learning Innovation for the pioneer of business team facilitation.

I was hooked. So when I left to start my own firm, I made developing resilient relationships a core part of my practice and even wrote my first book about it.

I’ve helped hundreds of executives transform their leadership through building resilient relationships.

Shall we get acquainted? Start here to read a few of my thought pieces or here for more on how we might work together. Or let’s just skip right to a conversation.

BTW—I am STILL a musician (catch my rock and blues band Storkzilla when you’re in the Bay area) and have the Grateful Dead t-shirt collection to prove it.

Cheers,
Michael
