Michael O’Brien is a sales
and marketing executive
business coach who helps
leaders slay their internal feelings of worry and doubt so they can achieve complete success for themselves and their teams. Before starting his executive coaching firm, Peloton Coaching and Consulting, Michael spent over two decades in the pharmaceutical and bio industry in roles that ranged from sales to marketing to executive leadership.
Before launching into his coaching career, Michael experienced a life-altering event that ruptured his worldview. On July 11th, 2001, he was struck head-on by a speeding SUV while out on a training bike ride. Now, Michael considers it his Last Bad Day and shares his journey from being a human doer to a human being in his best-selling memoir, Shift: Creating Better Tomorrows and donates all the proceeds to the World Bicycle Relief.
Now, Michael channels his energy to helping other business executives and entrepreneurs realize their potential by changing the conversations they have with others and themselves. He is also an active volunteer and corporate sponsor for the Healthcare Business Women’s Association and an advocate for diversity and gender parity. Michael lives in Bergen County, NJ with his wife, two daughters, three dogs and Rosie, the cat.
