Experience Counts

A Different Approach

I believe that the spirit under which your company was formed is a vital part of its future.  I won’t suggest that you change your company culture or anything that makes your business an amazing and unique enterprise.

My approach will be in integrating Best Practices of effective leadership with the established foundations of your business.

Because of my experience, I am able to provide the very best training and coaching for your business. My core experience is divided into basic areas of Teaching and Training, Management and Leadership, Production, Customer Service, and Sales. 

I treat all clients as individuals and don’t believe that a one-size-fits-all solution works. I’ll help you develop and customize a plan that meets your unique Leadership and Customer Service training and coaching needs.

My experience includes working locally (Oroville/Chico) with the Oroville/Chico Adult Educations Centers, Holiday Inn Express, Miner’s Alley and Tong Fong Low restaurants. 


We bring the coaching and training to your location, for one-on-one or group sessions at your convenience.

Team coaching

Group meetings, rallies, classes, and seminars can bring teams closer to achieving common goals.


Interactive workshops designed to improve problem-solving skill sets.



Because one-size does not fit all, together we create the coaching and training that best fits your needs.

General Manager Holiday Inn Express- Chico, CA

I had the pleasure of attending Michael DaRe’s Leadership Training over the summer and I have to tell you, it was absolutely career-changing.  I went into it with high expectations as he came highly recommended by multiple people, but even so, I came out of the course with more than I could have ever hoped for.  From learning tips on how do deal with different leadership styles to Improving my public speaking, he took the time to show us and teach us everything we needed to be successful.  For anyone that is in a leadership position, or has aspirations for being a leader in your life/career, I would highly recommend reaching out to Michael as he designs the courses for your team or individual needs. Michael, thank you for helping me in my path to becoming a successful General Manager and leader of my team.

Oroville Adult Education Center

Michael DaRe is one of the most knowledgeable individuals I know regarding business leadership and customer service.  His extensive experience in the corporate world was the basis for the positively reviewed Leadership for Managers class at Oroville Adult Education Center. His passion for the subject area and attention to detail were evident in the programs he developed.   His ideas for marketing our program are still beneficial for our school.  I highly recommend Michael DaRe.

 I found both Michael and his leadership class to be engaging and encouraging for those looking to rise through the ranks. I was able to take what I was learning in the classroom and immediately apply it at work, which was an affirmation that the lessons were helpful and accurate. Michael’s thoughtful anecdotes from decades working in retail also provided insights into how lessons applied to real work situations.

I have worked with Michael in a variety of environments from urban to rural, commuter to the neighborhood, and in every situation, he was able to strategize a plan that empowered the team to address the needs of the customer and drive top-line sales.
