Mike Wittenstein

IBM eVisionary and founder of StoryMiners®

During junior high school, Mike’s most valuable lesson came not from the classroom, but from the business venture, he started on the side. That effort began to take off when he figured out how to simplify, share, and engage others with the vision that was in his head. Crafting a success story about the future appeared to be a conduit to actual success. Mike honed his storytelling skills in the businesses he founded in grad school, as well as in the two successful agencies he later started. As an eVisionary for Global Services at IBM, he created an internal incubator that birthed new consultancies while saving IBM over a billion dollars. Coming full circle, Mike founded his consultancy, StoryMiners, in 2002 to coach other business leaders in designing and implementing their own success stories. His clients were astonished at how Mike’s approach cut through typical internal roadblocks to gain buy-in and traction for their initiatives. Mike also now shares his unique ideas in the keynote talks he gives around the world.

1 Habit: 100 Habits from the World’s Happiest Achievers – Paperback

You know the joy you feel when you are so passionate about your “why” that you can’t wait to wake up and jump right into life? That motivation will get you started, but to be able to follow through, you need the Habits that will help you place one foot in front of the other when things get tough.

Author, Steve Samblis spent years searching the world for the most successful people on the planet. He got to know them and asked them each “What was the one most crucial habit in your life that has made the most significant impact on your success.” He then took these 100 Habits and put them into a book called 1 Habit.

Not only does the 1 Habit contain the Habits, but it also teaches you how to make a Habit part of who you are. Make it part of your being. Once instilled in you, the Habits becomes something you just automatically now do, and that automates your pathway to success.
