What People Are Saying about Us

If you are looking to take your business to the next level, I strongly suggest you sit down with Mike for an hour and let them tell you about CEO Focus. We have worked with several business consultants over the years, mostly industry related, but I think they can only take you so far. It wasn’t until we started working with Mike & that we actually began to see transformation and growth in our people and business. We really had to dig in and find our company identity and mission. It’s a process but with Mike's experience, creative workshops and presentations, the journey is well worth it and not nearly as daunting as culture transformation might sound.

Here’s to building something special!

Innovise Business Consultants

As a coach and mentor, I have been working with Mike Butler for over 10 years as my boss and now as my Executive Coach when I started my company in 2019. Mike has been instrumental in helping me identify my strengths, reducing blind-spots -- and becoming a more self-aware leader. On our one year anniversary, we embarked on a culture transformation with a two day Seminar going through the 5 Dysfunctions of a Team with Mike. Although it is a journey and will take time, we have worked with him to build and grow our organizational clarity, address the real issues, and build an environment to encourage trust, team work and accountability. Mike’s coaching put me on a trajectory of success for my company and has helped me to evolve into a truly effective leader.

Working with the Executive Guide has been transformative for our organization. Mike has helped us to embody organizational clarity throughout all of our activities. We are becoming more unified as a team around consistent communications and the overall direction of our business. I would highly recommend their services to any type of organization. The more we invest into this process the more we are getting out of it!

Thompson Engineering

I always had a clear vision with what I wanted my Engineering Firm to look like, I knew I had the motivation to get there, but what I was missing was how to get there. I have been working with Mike for 18 months and I am now making big progress to achieving my visions as a CEO. They took the time to understand my vision, goals, and business and then we started working towards how to achieve the goals we set. Mike & Aleah have not only helped me as a CEO, they have helped me personally, through some very difficult times when I was not able to focus on work. My organization, team, family and of course myself would not be where we are today without the support, advice, and expertise of Mike. Thank you for all that you do!

Over the past five years, Mike provided me with counsel and consulting around organizational health and The Five Disfunctions of a Team. His guidance has helped me become a more effective leader and has helped the teams I lead. He empowers leaders and executives to do the difficult things that make positive impact on teams, build strong relationships and ultimately, the bottom line.
