Michael’s story

Michael Dauphinee is a coach, consultant, speaker, author, and adventurer, tenaciously committed to helping people navigate the unknowns of work and life. A highly sought-after Clifton Strengths expert, Mike believes people drastically underestimate their abilities and the mark they can make on the world. And not just for their own good, but for the good of others.

Michael teaches individuals and companies how to understand their strengths and identity, connect to their purpose and leave legacies of courageous action.


When Mike was a kid, he got fired from his job as a grocery store bag boy because he talked to the customers too much. Today, his gift of communication and passion for collaboration are what clients all over the world and at the highest levels of every vertical hire him for. When he realized his expression and perspective were strengths to be embraced, not flaws to overcome, he saw the unmistakable power and legacy that are possible when living out of your identity. He wants you to see it, too.

Since leaving his corporate job at HP and founding The Dauphinee Group in 2005, Mike has been providing coaching and accountability for individuals and organizations who seek to chart a course beyond high performance. He empowers people to craft their own compass for the unknown by asking questions they’ve never asked before. Questions like: What am I capable of? What are my strengths? Where am I getting in my own way?

As a coach, Mike brings a remarkable ability to customize resulting from his natural gifting and sheer breadth of experience. He can apply his strengths-based strategy to corporate performance at a Fortune 500 company; to navigating a first job out of college; even to combating violent extremism in conflict zones.

Mike has earned opportunities to speak and coach at organizations like Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Detroit Lions, the U.S. Olympic Committee, Shinola, United Way Worldwide, the U.S. State Department, the Afghan National Assembly, Bank of America, Ryan Inc., the San Diego Padres, YearUp, and Upside.
