The Book

The Asking Leader is a journey. 

The book will take you from the manager's instinct of having all of the answers, to the business leader’s mindset of asking the questions.

The journey will include descriptions of where we have come from and where we want to get to so that we can meet our goals of business leadership.

At the end of the journey of the Asking Leader, you will be able to see how to break through your ceiling of business growth.

You will see that the journey has only just begun.


Words from a Start Up

“I had the pleasure of working with Mike as my start up grew into a legitimate business. He helped me take my idea and let it become a sustainable business.
Mike has the ability to help the business owner get out of the business so you can truly see what need to be seen. 
Mike gave me the tools to have the conversations in the top end of town which has been invaluable. ”    

Edwina Sharrock, Birthbeat.

Telstra Small Businesswoman of the Year 2019.

Words from a Growing Business

"Mike Chairs our Advisory Board.  He helped us:

  • Strategy - Because we all agreed with the strategy there is now no tension.
  • Clarity - over strategy means we are all clear on where are going - if we act in line with the strategy nobody can get upset.
  • Decision making is easy - does it line up with our strategy? Where does it sit in our agreed matrix?
  • Role clarity - defined roles suited to our skillset - just because you are an owner doesn't mean you are the best person to do certain roles.
  • Being clear on what decisions are made at the board means no one person is hung out to dry.

We have doubled revenue and multiplied net profit by 10."

Ben Lee. REAQUA.

Words from an Infinite

He understands the challenges that business owners and business leaders face on a daily basis. The insight that he brings, the connections that he has in the business world, the advice he has provided on strategy and future-proofing my business has been inspirational.

Mike stretches and challenges us which we all need from time to time. Best of all, Mike makes it fun. For anyone who is looking to grow, change or improve their businesses and themselves, I would recommend Mike as the person to assist them to make it happen.

Words from an Exit

I've had the absolute pleasure and privileged of being mentored by Mike Logan since taking on my role as CEO of Edval Education back in 2018. Mike has been an extremely valuable source of knowledge, wisdom, business advice and experience both during the good times and the hard times. He's always been available and present in mind during our meetings.

Mike genuinely cares for his clients, their business goals and their personal health and wellbeing. I have no hesitation whatsoever in endorsing Mike for leadership coaching and mentoring in the areas of strategy, risk, governance, people and working with boards.

A word from an Exit

I recently sold my Warehouse and Distribution business of 20 years . Mike was instrumental in providing me with the clarity and an objectivity I needed to make such a life changing decision. Mike guided me through the process from start to finish by simply asking the questions that needed to be asked and providing me with impartial advice and support.

The positive impact that this decision has made on work-life balance, family, relationships and my health cannot be underrated, and I’m grateful for Mike’s role in this.
