Hi, I’m Michael Laidler
I’m the #1 Professional Speaker and Best-Selling Author on Mental Fatigue for High Impact LeadersDad, Professional Speaker, Best Selling Author
I was born and raised in Miami, Florida, by a single mother and my grandmother. With no father around, I had to learn how to lead myself before I learned how to lead others. I had to learn how to survive my surroundings, moving every year just to stay above water.
At the age of 19 years old, I entered the law enforcement industry as a police officer in Tallahassee, Florida. During my time, I became a Field Training Officer (FTO) and earned the Life Savings Award. At 23 years old, I shifted law enforcement agencies and became a Border Patrol Agent in Laredo, Texas. I was a member of specialized field units as well as a K-9 Handler. As I sought more challenging roles, I joined the Federal Bureau of Prisons. I held positions of increasingly greater responsibility to include Correctional Officer, Special Investigative Services Technician, Lieutenant, Special Investigative Agent and Employee Development Manager. Each of these roles developed my expertise as a law enforcement officer.
I earned a Master's degree in Business Administration from Morehead State University and a Bachelor's degree in Business and Spanish from Florida State University. I proudly serve as the Area Director for Toastmasters in Beaumont, Texas. I also served as Vice President and President of the Confident Allies Toastmasters Club in Pineville, Louisiana, where I have received multiple awards, including Distinguished Toastmaster, First Place in the Toastmasters International Speech contest and the Evaluation Contests at the Division Level.
Based on this abundance of education and experience, I am driven on developing self-awareness and leadership skills in first responders and anyone in stressful positions. I conduct keynote presentations, conduct 360 leader assessments, facilitate mastermind groups, provide one-on-one executive coaching and host leadership workshops. Ultimately, I am on a mission to impart the necessary personal development skills for first responders to operate at full capacity in any situation.
In 2017, I put all of my education and experience together and opened Michael Laidler Unlimited. My mission and vision statements are:
I have interest in motivating, inspiring and igniting first responders across the world. I perceive it as its unremitting duty to change lives and mindset through keynote speeches, one-on-one coaching, leadership trainings and workshops, with focus in leadership and personal development.
I seek to be impactful in building first responders across the world and to be held in high repute amongst other competitions.
I have connected with clients across the world, helping them fulfill their organizational goals and walking with their leaders on their journey to significance. I have helped organizations create and revamp their culture which has led to an increased morale, greater team satisfaction and higher retention rates.I am looking forward to assisting you on your journey to becoming a successful leader.
