As the CEO of Chat With Leaders Media and Executive Partner at People-First Elevation Team, I lead a dedicated team specializing in thought leadership development, stakeholder engagement, and effective global communication. We excel in producing corporate podcasts, meetings, and events to drive customer and team member acquisition, retention, and engagement. Additionally, we provide speaker coaching to empower thought leaders within our clients' organizations.

My approach is grounded in Conscious Capitalism, fostering leaders with a values-driven, pro-capitalism perspective. I firmly believe in business's transformative power, not only as a commercial venture but as a catalyst for lasting social and generational impact.

Beyond my professional role, I cherish my most significant leadership role as a father to three children, alongside my wife Katie. This personal aspect deeply influences my professional path, aligning my business strategies with family values, faith, and community service in Atlanta, GA.

In this episode, Jeff chats with Scott McMichael, Managing Director of Improving’s South Region about the direct impact on the business success he’s experienced by prioritizing all stakeholders in their business when making decisions. Even though it’s the harder path, the literal differentiation and lasting relationships this creates for your business will set it up for a bright future.

Scott McMichael is also on the Conscious Capitalism Chapter Board in Atlanta and a wonderful steward of his community.
