Create A Brief Bio

For relationship purposes… we are going to ask everyone to prepare a personal leader bio so you can introduce yourself when the program starts with our face-to-face meetup in San Antonio, Texas.

It’s a good idea to follow some type of advice for creating a personal introduction. I found this one I liked because the examples are excellent.


Here’s the draft of one I’m writing for myself for this program:

Hi, my name is Michael Robert Jay. I’m named after two US Marines whose families shared the same married military group housing with my parents when I was born in 1952 during the Korean War… but I’m known as Mike. I was fortunate to also serve as a US Marine during the Vietnam War without having to go into combat and after playing football for the Quantico Marines… attend Texas A&M University on a football scholarship after an “early-out” in 1973 winning the AGGIE Heart AWARD in my senior season, 1975. I finished with a BS degree in Animal Science and have appreciated the broad base of pre-vet science education that I’ve relied on to help me discover my own self-knowledge bias and to help me design leadership programs that serve people around the globe… nudging me to become more self-aware. I passed 10,000 hours as a professional coach in 2002 and once coached a pair of Oligarchs across the street from the Russian White House in Moscow. I’ve trained coaches from 45 different countries and written numerous books, articles, and white papers: being a Credit Human Member since 2007.

That’s a first draft that I had fun with, and it might raise a few eyebrows in the process 😉

Now try writing yours and send it to us at leadwise99@icloud.com for posting on our group website when you’re ready. No hurry, we will ask for these the week before our first meeting.


If you have any comments, questions, suggestions, or need some additional help, please visit https://www.leadu.com/comment/ to submit them.  Someone will get back to you within 48 hours.

We hope you pick up valuable insights, ideas, and tools during this process, which you can use for your own development as well as your work and leadership with others.

You, Me, and We @F-L-O-W
