Michael J. Marx, MBA, EdD, PCC is a Professional Certified Coach specializing in business coaching and life coaching. His passion is adult learning and he serves on the faculty of Concordia University Wisconsin (teaching MBA International Business, and MBA International Finance), and the Professional Christian Coaching Institute (teaching Coaching Skills Mastery, and Ethics & Risk Management).
Irrepressibly adventurous, Michael and his wife Joy lived and worked in Europe for over two decades. More recently, they traveled the U.S. and Canada in an RV, operating their location-neutral businesses and coaching/teaching via internet video. A ranch near Steamboat Springs, Colorado is now called home. Their German golden retriever, “Angel,” writes a blog (in two languages!) about her family’s adventures at: https://travelswithangel.wordpress.com/
A strong advocate for professionalism in Christian coaching, Michael currently serves as the leader of the ICF ethics community. His enthusiasm for the subject brought him to write Ethics and Risk Management for Christian Coaches (2016). Additionally, he is the president of Christian Coaches Network International.
Michael is a sought-after subject matter expert. He often speaks and conducts workshops on trust building, coaching relationships, ethics, evidenced-based coaching, and one-to-one (dyadic) learning. His hobbies include skiing and dog sledding. His greatest joy, however, comes from mentoring. Learn more about Michael at: www.BlazingNewTrailsCoaching.com
