Hello, I'm Michael.
Michael S. Sorensen is a business executive by day and a bestselling author, speaker, and relationship coach by night. An “everyday-person-turned-thought-leader,” Michael has helped hundreds of thousands of people across the world heal broken relationships, revitalize their confidence, and become masters of connection in business, love, and life.
Unique among others in his field, Michael is not a therapist, social worker, or medical professional. Instead, he gained his knowledge by going to therapy himself—1-2 times per week, for over five years—and voraciously consuming every relationship and self-help book he could get his hands on.
Before long, Michael realized he had stumbled upon a trove of life-changing skills and principles that the vast majority of the world is never taught. And seeing the impact this newfound knowledge was having in his own life, he set out to share it with others.
This led him to publish his first book, I Hear You: The Surprisingly Simple Skill Behind Extraordinary Relationships, which quickly rose to the #1 spot on Amazon’s bestseller lists, earned over 8,000 five-star ratings, won numerous awards, and has been translated into over 12 languages.
He has since been invited to speak at some of the world’s largest organizations, had his work featured in major media outlets, been a guest on countless radio and podcast shows, and even conducted training for the United States military.
He’s real. He tells it like it is. And while he backs his teachings with research, he cuts out the “fluff” and gets right to the point. This approach has earned praise not only from readers, listeners, and students, but also from countless therapists, social workers, and psychologists who now recommend his work to their clients.
Michael is also the host of the I Hear You Relationships Podcast, creator of the Extraordinary Relationships Master Course, and is a passionate entrepreneur with several successful ventures across a variety of industries. Michael received his Bachelor’s degree in Business Management from Brigham Young University, and resides with his wife Melissa in Utah, USA.
