Michael Dailey has been training for his role at Invictus Legacy Builders for his entire career.
After 23 years in the military, including serving as a Green Beret, and another decade with Homeland Security, Dailey has a unique take on life and how to help others.
“My perspective is at times unconventional,” Dailey admits. “It is a get-the-job done, no-excuses environment. If you want to affect change, you have to take that step forward. My goal is to instill the ability to overcome adversity.”
As founder and CEO for Invictus Legacy Builders, Dailey is a high-performance success coach and consultant.
“I help people unlock their genius,” he said.
“I help individuals and companies achieve higher levels of growth and overcome hurdles,” Dailey said. “I don’t look at leadership as a cookie cutter approach. I look at individuals as individuals. I ask ‘What is the company doing to achieve its stated outcome?’”
Dailey assesses the company and helps them find their pain points, much like he did in the military and with Homeland Security. Then he helps them find the help that they need, whether it’s in building a company culture, financial planning, marketing or something else. If he can’t help them, he will find resources and build a team that can.
“The way that I approach is I instruct with real world examples,” he said. “My clients have HEART – they are Hungry, believe in Empathy leadership, Actively seeking improvement (accountable for their actions), they are Ripple makers who want to have positive impact and they are Team players.”
Invictus has clients in a range of occupations, including IT, musicians, students, single parents, CEOs and executives, Dailey said.
“I typically work with somebody 60 to 90 minutes a week as we work through ideas and thoughts,” he said.
But individuals’ and companies’ needs vary widely, Dailey explained.
“I could literally come in and give a one-hour speech, do a team building event or come in on a regular basis for three to six months to work with the leadership,” he said.
One situation that requires a very sensitive approach is with companies that are going through a merger or acquisition, Dailey said.
“You can only imagine what the company on the other end feels like, the apprehension, especially middle management,” he said. “How do you win over a new workforce? I start from scratch and assess every area. As the military taught us, to tear it down and build it back up.
“When I was in Homeland Security, my organization trained thousands of individuals in law enforcement,” Dailey said. “I’ve been training people my entire adult life. I thought I could take my expertise in training and instilling leadership and provide that to companies or entrepreneurs.”
Dailey helps people and companies find what is working for them and what is not.
“A lot of times we fail to see the value of what we do for others because we are our own worst critics,” he said.
