Michael Bader
Executive Coach

As a clinical psychologist and executive coach who has been practicing psychotherapy and advising leaders for 40 years, Michael is compelled by the belief that leaders are often derailed in the pursuit of their goals by limiting beliefs that can be overcome through increased self-awareness and thoughtful experimentation with new behaviors. Michael draws on deep expertise in neuroscience, mindfulness and organizational change. He began his career teaching Clinical Psychology and Therapy and later founded a nationwide coaching program focused on issues of strategy and organizational changes for progressive political leaders and change agents.

What clients say. Clients appreciate Michael’s direct, provocative, and empathetic approach to coaching. He quickly zeros in on key dynamics and surfaces essential insights that were not readily apparent previously.

Education. Michael received his BA and MA in Psychology from University of California, Berkeley and his Doctorate of Mental Health from University California, San Francisco.

Clients. Michael has coached senior leaders from URW, Dropbox, Pindrop, UiPath, Zynga, BridgeBio, PLOS, and ThirdLove.
