Dr. Erika Michalski has a robust history of providing enthusiastic keynotes and engaging workshops dedicated to empowering participants and cultivating new ideas about professional development. Erika is passionate about creating environments where individuals feel equipped to tackle new challenges as they move forward in personal and professional endeavors. She chooses to anchor all her work by using four primary lenses: authenticity, neuroscience, positive psychology, and evolution ... in other words, there’s a little something for everyone when Erika gets involved!
On February 29, 2020, after years of consulting in various capacities, Dr. Michalski founded Strategically Authentic, a consulting company dedicated to helping people leverage who they are to get where they want to be.

Erika is known by clients and colleagues as the one who believes even the most ambitious goals are possible as long as there is a nimble plan rooted in authenticity ... and she is ready to celebrate successes of every size along the way to achieving them!
"To know Erika is to love her. She lives and breathes her message of authenticity, celebrating others, and generating joy. She brings this to each and every training and keynote she does. What I love most is that no two presentations are the same - she personalizes each one to specifically meet the unique needs of your organization. Erika has worked with two of my organizations and both experiences provided concrete, actionable takeaways that we were able to immediately put into action. She is able to easily intertwine the science and research into her message in a way that captivates her audience and helps you better understand why we as humans behave and do the things we do."
"Erika cares so much about helping people explore their own capacity on an individual level and then shifts that into high gear when she walks teams through a discussion about the collective possibilities in the room. When I say we all felt like we could do just about anything after a day with Erika, I mean we all truly believed we were capable of ANYTHING! Erika has a knack for balancing the need for humor and leading serious conversations. She is masterful at honoring random comments and somehow still keeping the group engaged and on track. We don't usually have employees request repeat visits, but before she left participants were already asking when we could bring her back. That's big praise around our organization!"
"Dr. Michalski's keynote speech was the highlight of the conference! I loved her energy, expertise, and the way she made her presentation applicable to the audience."
"I loved the keynote speaker in the morning, Dr. Erika Michalski - she was engaging, energetic, and shared really interesting and relevant information."
"After hearing her once, I can say I want to attend any event where Erika is speaking! It's like she knows exactly how to fill the room with energy and confidence while also give you real tools to use right away! Her keynote felt like a master class!"
Erika loves to bring her mix of sparkle and scientific research to the stage! Her enthusiasm and passion are absolutely contagious when she's delivering a message. And you are guaranteed to laugh a few times, too. In her keynotes, she focuses on two main topic areas: Satisfaction and Authenticity.

This can look a variety of different ways based on each client's unique needs. Click below to learn more about how she helps teams maximize the talent they have available.
Sometimes people need a little support from an outsider who can believe in them even when they have doubts … that’s another area where Erika really shines. She knows how to meet people where they are and support them through the exploration of where they want to go.

You can organize all you want, but you'll get more productivity from passion than a planner. The novelty of a new organizational approach eventually wears off. And your team is left with the same projects they were working on before. Without passion, the productivity level will go right back to where it was. Stop wasting resources on shiny new organizational systems and start investing in the people being asked to implement them.
