Check-out Michelle’s Leadership Autobiography:

From BAD to BADASS Leader – 12 Leadership Lessons

Author, Michelle D. Reines

MDR Coaching & Consulting, Inc. is thrilled to have two distinct brands. MDR is our traditional leadership development brand and Badass Leader® is our unconventional leadership brand. We leverage a hybrid of both brands as needed or requested. 

Why Badass Leader?

Our Badass Leader brand and book “From Bad to Badass Leader” was born out of a desire to create an approachable, edgy, humorous, and relatable leadership resource to serve everyday leaders in maximizing overall performance success by combining our passion for PEOPLE, WORK & PLAY.

From Bad to Badass Leader, is about Michelle’s journey and lessons learned while progressing from being an ass as a boss, in pursuit of becoming a successful leader. Early, in her leadership journey, she was oblivious to the impact she had on people.  She didn’t understand the art of leading people and building high performance teams. The people-parts can be the most challenging for many leaders, and certainly proved to be for her.  She’s excited to share her bumps, bruises and lessons learned, in hopes of supporting you in becoming an architect of building badass musketeer teams.  Learn how to transform yourself, your team, and your organization.

NOTE: This book isn’t for everyone.  Some people will not enjoy Michelle’s casual and playful style of communication, and prefer principles and methodology over life lessons and stories, and that’s okay; there’s another book out there for you.  Perhaps you’re an up-and-coming leader, entrepreneur, or executive – who’s trying to connect with a workforce that might be different than you. #AuthenticallyUnconventional #ServingEveryDayHeroes #OneSizeDoesNotFitAll

We invite you to visit to learn more about this unconventional, serious, and playful brand.

Spirit of Hospitality


  • “Love Your Customers ~ Serve Them Unconditionally ~ Win Their Hearts.”

Larry Stuart, a Cornell University Graduate, has over 40 years of leadership experience in the hospitality industry and has worked with such class brands including the Walt Disney World Dolphin, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, Loews Hotels at Orlando Resort, and Southwest Airlines.  He has contributed as a hospitality expert for FOX News and is the CEO of LS Hospitality.

“Reading Larry’s book, The Spirit of Hospitality, took me back to the opening of the Walt Disney World Dolphin, where Larry developed and honed much of his philosophy on service. He, along with his teammates, helped make a culture that swept up our staff and managers alike and created an atmosphere unlike any I have experienced since. The Spirit of Hospitality will enthrall you with the possibilities and instill not only the importance of the basics, but the value of reinventing and stretching every day.”

– Michael D. Welly, Emeritus General Manager, Walt Disney World Dolphin; President, Cairn Hospitality and Wellness Consulting
