I encountered Mike Metzger at a critical point in my life. My first experience was a Skunkworks workshop, and that turned into a year of intentional mentorship, and now a decade of mentorship and friendship. His writing and personal guidance have inspired me to create a business and to design a unique product that has now been activated in over 100 companies around the country. Mike has also influenced and strengthened my contributions to my church as a member of our teaching team. His insights about human nature and culture making are treasures for leaders who want to make the most of their lives. He and Kathy have also deposited wisdom and grace into my marriage and family. My wife, Laura, and I are grateful for them both.
