Michael Connor

Transforming Challenges into Opportunities

Don't manage change, thrive on it!

Whether you're overhauling, downsizing, getting started, or experiencing a growth spurt, transitions provide extraordinary opportunities when you're willing to let go of the often limiting past, and open to an unlimited future.
Profitability, teamwork, leadership development, customer service, and vision and values clarification can all be dramatically enhanced during the less predictable, yet more exciting, periods of change.
Replace fear with enthusiasm. All that's required is a willingness to step out of old practices and into the creative approaches that arise when you see change for what it really is - the doorway to the future.

Creative Transitions' President, Michael Connor, has been designing and presenting personal and professional development keynotes and trainings worldwide since 1993. A highly talented trainer and facilitator, he has presented programs on four continents, including Eastern & Western Europe, Russia, Israel, and Brazil, among others. A business professional with a wealth of practical expertise, he is the former President and CEO of the Insight Educational Institute and a former health care executive. Mike holds Masters Degrees in Health Care Management and Practical Theology. While consulting to the Ministry of Health in Bulgaria, he met his wife, Maria, a physician.
