Michael O’Brien

CIQ Certified Coach

I’m Michael O’Brien and I help leaders and teams create better tomorrows and results. My goal is to change lives through better executive/business leadership and cross-functional teamwork.


People I’ve worked with have found that they and their teams have:

  • Enhanced engagement and discretionary effort
  • Maximized trust and collaboration
  • Minimized judgment and toppled barriers to success
  • Improved change responsiveness and accountability
  • Strengthened culture and delivered better results


Peloton Business Leadership Coaching and Consulting is all about your success. When you work with Peloton, you partner with a coach who understands your world because I’ve lived it as a 22+ year veteran in multiple pharmaceutical leadership and executive roles.


In the past, I was convinced that “good enough was good enough.”​ I thought living under an umbrella of stress was “business as usual in the corporate world.” I never looked past my own assumptions because I was too busy establishing my career, providing for my family, and driving for results.


Then, in an instant, my life changed.


On the morning of July 11, 2001, I was out on a cycling training ride before a corporate meeting. I was hit head-on by an SUV that crossed into my lane traveling 40 mph


My doctors said if I had been unhealthy or 10 years older, I probably would have died that day.


I decided I would not be defined by my accident. Rather, I would be defined by how I responded to my accident, and with that, I made the choice to recalibrate my approach to the rest of my life.
