Our Leadership

Hi, my name is Michael Harbaugh, founder and President of the Center for Continuous Improvement. As a graduate of Southwestern Illinois I have more than three decades experience in leading business organizations. My primary role over those years has been to facilitate fundamental changes in both people and processes that yield positive sustainable results. 

Our company enjoys an international client base, having served both individuals and organizations ranging from small family owned businesses to Fortune 10 corporations in more than one hundred industries around the globe. Our experience includes strategic thinking and business planning, developing strong leaders from the front line to the front office, driving innovation as an engine for profitable growth, implementing sustainability as a strategic and tactical advantage, and lean organizational transformations.

I have been blessed to have had the opportunity to serve in the community as Program Chair for the Mississippi chapter of the American Society for Quality’s Human Development and Leadership Division, and as an education committee member with the Mississippi Manufacturers Association, the Mississippi Associated Builders and Contractors, and the Jackson Chamber of Commerce. As a long-time member of the Rotary Club of Downtown Jackson, I served on their Scholarship, Program, and Community Services Committees. I am also active in leadership development in my church and serve in both motorcycle, music, and recovery ministries.

In my role as an individual and business facilitator, mentor, and coach, I am fortunate to have discovered my purpose early in life, and also to have had the opportunity to pursue my dreams in this great country. To date, my personal experience includes working in more than twenty different industries. By the grace of God I have been recognized as an outstanding public speaker, a successful business leader, and a contributing mentor to the business community... all for which I remain eternally grateful.

I look forward to the time when we can get acquainted and perhaps even have the opportunity to help you discover your true purpose, and realize your most important dreams. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.

With warmest regards,

Michael J. Harbaugh
