Work From The Inside Out Podcast - Hitting the Pause Button – Michael O’Brien
The date was July 11th, 2001. It was the day Michael O’Brien was struck head-on by a speeding SUV while out on a training bike ride. A former pharmaceutical industry executive, Michael is a coach to sales and marketing executives, TEDx speaker, best selling author, and cyclist. He shares his journey in his best-selling memoir, Shift: Creating Better Tomorrows and donates the proceeds to World Bicycle Relief.
In this episode we discuss:
Who Michael was before his “Last Bad Day”, a life-altering bicycle accident in 2001.
How his accident sparked his transition from being a ‘human doing’ to a ‘human being’.
The mindset shifts that have occurred since Michael’s life took a pause.
How his developing awareness forced him to pay attention, move toward acceptance, and into action.
His belief that small steps with focus lead to bigger gains.
Michael’s Paceline Leadership Academy.
