Lets do It!

If you want to live a life with no regrets, where you shoot for the stars and at least reach the moon, I can help you.

I am a Professional Coach

My friends call me Mike, or “Coach”. The latter because that is what I have been doing most of my life, both in the sporting and not-for-profit arenas. I have found that my skills are very transferable into the corporate sector for both teams and individuals. I gain great satisfaction helping people build vision empowered teams and individual lives. I have experience working with individuals, teams, and large gatherings, including international conferences. A special moment was being invited by Zig Ziglar to speak to his team.

Looking forward to getting to know you.

Clients Testimonials

  • "I am pleased to commend Mike Knott’s involvement in a staff development project with the Banking Ombudsman Scheme (BOS).

    Mike developed and facilitated a one day external workshop to help us identify ways of strengthening staff engagement. Mike’s involvement really helped move our team forward. We not only developed a concrete set of proposals, but came away feeling positive about the challenges ahead.

    Mike also helped me personally in his capacity as coach and mentor. I found him to be supportive and empowering, an excellent listener, and a great visual and conceptual thinker. Mike seemed to get the measure of me quickly and asked the kind of questions that helped me clarify and communicate my vision for the Office and how I connected with this.

    I will continue to meet with Mike monthly to discuss progress with him as I deepen my leadership journey."

    Deborah Battell Banking Ombudsman

  • "I have considered Mike Knott a Life Coach / Mentor for many years – working alongside him as an associate for 15 years and in recent times as an advisor and friend.Mike together with his wife Jeannie have held public positions of trust and influence locally and internationally for over 25 years and throughout that time have remained consistent, credible and have never lost their vibrancy for life and a genuine interest in people.

    Mike is a visionary himself and lives a very purposeful lifestyle. He has the ability to offer vision on a wider scale to individuals and organisations that is authentic and displays a commitment to enable others to achieve."

    Mike’s key strengths include:
    • His life experience offers a well rounded / grounded approach to advice given on personal issues
    • His ability to lead teams is well proven and he has a knack of identifying and training leadersat all levels.
    • Mike thrives in a cross cultural environment and has a gift with languages
    • He has the ability to engage and inspire people across a wide age and social demographic
    • He has strong communications skills both on an individual level and in a crowd setting
    I have no hesitation in recommending Mike as a Vision Coach as I have benefited significantly from his input and influence in my own life.

    Rob Reid Finance & Business Manager Parachute Music

  • "Over a year Mike coached me to a greater level of honesty and engagement in the complex issues I was facing in a very senior leadership position I held at the time. He encouraged me and challenged me to be the best I could be, to engage with the root issues that were tripping me up, and to take bold steps towards better relationships that were central to my role. Mike's wisdom, experience, clarity, and ridiculously positive motivation were tremendously helpful, and I am grateful that his voice is one I can trust on my journey."

    Mike Griffiths ELIM Christian Centre, Auckland

  • “Michael's greatest attribute is his desire to see others succeed in all aspects of their life and his passion to support that happening.”

    Glen Johnson Ministry of Education of New Zealand

  • “It is no accident that Mike Knott has been affectionately known as "Coach" for many years by friends and the people he has mentored. The amount of successful people Mike has helped who have in turn gone forward to accomplished large projects, reach goals, change other lives, and develop personally is staggering.

    Mike is a constant and positive source of rational wisdom which is truly hard to find today. He continues to build people with a positive heart on a daily basis and lead them to their greatest potential.”
