Interview with Michael Anderson

Soul-centered Leadership and the multiple Brains

We spoke with Michael Anderson about his fascinating work on ‘Soul-centered Leadership’ and how it relates to the multiple brains. Author and keynote speaker, Michael Anderson, M.B.A., M.A., is the founder of The Executive JOY Institute. Michael specializes in teaching organizations, leaders, and individuals how to become even more successful through psychology, emotional intelligence, and mindfulness.

By the age of thirty-five Michael had founded three international software companies, played semi-professional basketball (yes, he’s really six-foot nine!), and partied at the Playboy Mansion—but he wasn’t happy.

Hard drugs, alcohol, a divorce, and a nasty lawsuit brought him to a low point. A quest for change included earning a master’s degree in Spiritual Psychology from the prestigious University of Santa Monica.

His unique background of real-life experience mixed with his world-class education allows his audiences to both learn and be entertained. An authentic and vulnerable speaker, attendees find him thought-provoking, inspirational, and unique.

Michael has taught leaders around the world, from Panama to the Philippines to Australia and Mexico, and has worked with a broad range of clients, including Microsoft, SAP, Stanford University, Vistage, Young Presidents Organization (YPO), and Entrepreneurs Organization (EO).

Michael founded The Executive JOY Institute to teach others the same real-life tools that he used to change his own life. Through speaking, writing, radio shows, and online content, he is advancing his mission to “raise the consciousness of the world by elevating leaders”.
