Relentless adventures

A Once in a Lifetime Leadership Adventure
Expand your vision // Redefine your potential // Create your life plan


Do you feel like you’re aimlessly wandering through your life with no clear direction or meaning?

  • You’re not sure what to focus on each day
  • You don’t feel like you’re making progress on your most important projects
  • You set goals but don’t actually achieve them
  • You don’t have a clear vision of your life for the next 10 years
  • You aren’t sure how you can be most productive
  • You wake up in a fog and feel like your life is meaningless


Is your leadership lacking the vision and inspiration your team needs?

  • Your team members don’t know what their most important priorities are
  • Your team members need a sense of purpose
  • You have team members who are just showing up to punch the clock
  • You need to rediscover the clarity, confidence and passion required to lead your team to the next level.

If you feel like your life or your leadership isn’t going in the right direction, this adventure will help you redraw your map.

For more than 15 years, Michael (or Mike D., as friends and trekkers would call him) has coached leaders and individuals all over the world driven by one question: What are we truly capable of if we start from a place of strength?

This same question, when he was lost in his own fog of depression, obesity and insomnia, drove Mike to quit his career with HP and change the course of his life. An encounter with Clifton Strengths, a sense of desperation, and a hard look in the mirror, launched Mike in a new direction. This pivot has led to dynamic coaching relationships with leaders in government, development, sports and most of the major business verticals you can think of.

After years of coaching leaders, Mike realized life’s biggest questions needed a bigger classroom. In 2013, he partnered with OneSeed Expeditions to merge locally-led, once-in-a-lifetime travel experiences with world-class coaching. And Relentless Adventures was born.

Since then, Relentless Adventures trekkers have traveled to Torres del Paine in Chilean Patagonia and Sulkantay Pass in Peru; biked the length of California; and trekked Base Camp and the Three Passes of Everest National Park.
