About the Author

Born in Australia, Michelle Ray is the Founder and CEO of the Lead Yourself First Institute. Michelle is a leadership and workplace relationship expert who demonstrates a deep understanding of personal accountability, internal team dynamics, interpersonal communication, and service excellence. She uses an interactive approach to inspire and captivate the imagination of her audiences. Michelle began her career in the media industry during the recession of the early 1980’s. She was once told by management that she “didn’t have what it takes” to succeed in the business world. Despite a lack of mentors, Michelle was inspired to move up the management ladder to self-employment, eventually creating her own successful international business. Michelle’s first training, speaking and consulting company was established in 1995. She subsequently created the Lead Yourself First Institute to help individuals and organizations take the initiative in the face of change and economic uncertainty. Her company’s array of educational training and keynote topics specialize in areas she describes as high demand essentials for professional growth. Michelle also offers in-house business seminars and consulting for leadership development, understanding changing demographics, communication and improving workplace relationships. Michelle is a Certified Speaking Professional (CSP), the highest-earned designation in the speaking industry. Less than 600 people worldwide have earned this distinction after meeting rigorous criteria established by the National Speakers’ Association. She has been listed in the Who’s Who of Professional Speakers and has worked with a myriad of clientele providing in house seminars and conference presentations. Her style has been described as refreshing, uplifting, entertaining, informative and amusing with a common sense message. From thousands of entries received, Michelle reached the “Top Ten” of North America’s Next Greatest Speaker Contest in 2012. She currently resides in Vancouver, British Columbia with her husband Brian, is an avid runner, and enjoys spending time with her two adorable grandchildren.

Format: Paperback
An absolutely incredible book! I've been reading a lot of leadership books lately, and along with Robin Sharma's "The Leader Who Had No Title", this is one of the best. "Lead Yourself First!" is a very easy read with a lot of meat on the bones. It has incredible tools and practical strategies, along with some pretty hillarious and personal stories! I highly recommend it.
