The 5Ls Making an Impact

The true measure of success is gauged on the amount of lives you touch and leave for the better

I am so glad I was there to see you in action! Your passion and love for what you do were evident to the audience. It was engaging, authentic and fun!


The concept of the 5Ls was amazing! I felt like it was so attainable and made the thought of being a Leader less scary and more about touching lives in a meaningful way.


 Everyone at my table loved it!

I have been a Marketing and Business professional for over 10 years and have had the opportunity to attend many career improvement courses.  I strongly recommend this course to all those who seek greater understanding and development of their abilities, aiming for greater prominence, innovation and success in a competitive world full of opportunities.”

I believe the 5Ls carries a message that people need to hear. It's reassuring to know that people like Sal and Mike are out there as beacons, pointing the way forward to those wandering about in today's gloom

I would like to personally thank you for the fantastic 5Ls training on Saturday. I have never enjoyed a class so much in my life and was not bored once throughout the three and a half hours. Additionally, I want to thank you for making the environment so open and comforting, a place where all my original doubts about the class faded away. I hope you have an amazing week!

In a sea of leadership training, Michael stands out from the crowd with his high energy and simple breakdown of complex concepts.  You can’t help but have Michael’s positive attitude rub off on you and motivate you to achieve things you’ve never imagined.  My short time with Michael proved more valuable than countless books, podcasts, and seminars.

Mekram M. - National Head of Sales

It was a pleasure to meet you and to have you for my instructor. Thank you for all your teachings, on the 5Ls, I will carry them with me always.

What People Are Saying

The 5Ls has made a huge impact on our organization and our initiatives to support true work-life balance and total well-being. The 5Ls – Gift of a Balanced Life program has received rave reviews and is being rolled out to our entire workforce.”

Jordy R. - Chief Human Resources Officer

Wow! This book cuts through the BS & tells it like it is. If you're going through a rough patch or if you feel like you're repeating the same patterns over & over, your Ls are off! It's just that simple! This book explains clearly what those Ls are, why we need them balanced, and even how to do that. This stuff should be taught to all of us in middle school--maybe even sooner! It's laid out perfectly, which makes for an easy, fun read. GREAT GIFT for this holiday season!

I loved the 5Ls!  We need more of this and the timing was perfect!

Brian M.- Director of Security

I sincerely thank you for the tools that you have provided me with. I walked into this room 4 weeks ago as a different leader, a different person, and with a different mentality. But the skills I have learned has changed who I am and my life as a whole. I have already seen immense growth in my personal and daily life— I have begun to let go, focus on what’s important, embrace the persona of a “Servant Leader” and most importantly, live by the 5Ls. I have seen major improvements in my life, health, happiness, and athletic journey. I feel that I am now equipped with the tools to be successful. 

Ashrita G.- Supervisor

Thank you so much for such an amazing experience over these past 4 weeks. You taught me so much in such a fun and enjoyable way. I will never forget you and what you taught me moving forward in college and in life itself. You truly inspired me to conquer the fear of failure and do what I am passionate about. Thank you so much for that.

Taking the Leadership and Management Development Course with Michael Mannix has, without a doubt, been one of the best decisions I have made for my own personal growth. I learned much about both the leadership world and myself, and looked forward to every week with him. Mike has been such an amazing teacher and role model. Caring, entertaining, and helpful in every way, Mike is truly someone to look up to and someone who has changed my life for the better!
