The Mission For My Life Is...

My mission in life is build a life of significance and to positively impact the people around me and create transformation through teaching, coaching and speaking. Through its ripples, we can change the world for the better.


My name is Michael Trefel and I am an executive coach, an entrepreneur, a husband, a dad to two amazing girls and an eternal optimist who believes that together,  through coaching and consulting we can achieve anything and change the world in the process.

I was one of the youngest executives in Lehman Brothers. Quickly rising to become a Global Head of technical strategy. There, I created the systems and models that took our team to the top of our field, consistently ranking in the top 3 in the country by the All American Institutional Investor Survey for more than 6 consecutive years.

Following more than 10 years in Banking I took my strategy and team building and coaching knowledge, and applied it to build a larger coaching and consulting organization that has since built multiple successful sales teams, influenced entrepreneurs and sales departments at various organization and allowed me access to some of the best people in the industry including MAPS and the John Maxwell Team.

You can achieve anything in the world if you first help enough people achieve what they want.” – Zig Zigler
