cutting through the bullsh*t of a complex world!


“To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.” Lao Tzu

This book explores a new way of thinking about leadership that will allow you to ‘cut through the bullsh*t’ of today’s disruptive and turbulent world.

    • It will take you beyond your current level of perceptual possibility and see the world and its complex problems with fresh eyes and clarity.
    • You will see things that you have never seen before!
    • It will give you the means to Think Less, See Clearer, and Achieve More!

What it is pointing to underpins everything you are and everything you do as a leader and as a human being. Depending on how deep you will see, … it has the potential to profoundly change the quality of your life, the way you think and do things, and your impact on the lives of others in meaningful and enriching ways.



“In these extraordinary times, the need for exceptional thinkers and organisations has never been greater. While many leadership books follow the well-trodden ground, today’s complexities and challenges necessitate a fresh perspective on leadership. Mike Schwarzer’s book, ‘VANTAGE POINT: cutting through the bullsh*t of a complex world,’ serves as both the torch and compass that illuminate the way and guide us as we step into uncharted territory, embark on new explorations, and pioneer innovative paths. Consider it the ‘secret sauce’ that empowers leaders and managers to rise above the noise and illuminate their path forward.”

Gabriella Sprott, Director & Co-Founder @ ShowMe Exchange, Australia


“‘VANTAGE POINT’ is a breath of fresh air in these uncertain times. As a leader in the not-for-profit and community-based sector, I know how challenging it can be to navigate the intricate business terrain we find ourselves in.
This book is like a treasure map, guiding us to venture beyond the familiar, challenge the status quo, and embrace the unknown. For those willing to look, in this book, you’ll find a beacon of wisdom that shines a light on our path ahead in these uncertain times. If you want to have a greater impact on our growth as a leader, improve your ability to guide others, and make operational and strategic decisions, this book will be your trusted compass on this journey!”

Nunzio Giurastante, National Manager, Grow Fit Fund, Australia


“Sit down with a good cup of coffee and prepare to challenge yourself and your thinking.
Mike takes us on a journey through concepts that challenge our thinking and our beliefs. A couple of times I had to stop, scratch my chin, sit back and ponder before… ping… the idea hit me between the eyes. He adds enjoyable stories along the way to demonstrate how to bring these concepts to life. This book isn’t one to pick up if you are looking for a 5 minute “how-to” guide. This is a book to explore, ponder and grow with.”

Michelle T Holland, Author of the international bestseller, Culture Inc and Founder & Director of SynergyIQ, Organisational Consulting Firm, Adelaide, Australia


“Mike has a deep understanding of people, organisations and how they both tick; the reasons why they struggle, and how to help them to thrive.
The pages of this book contain a blueprint & roadmap for doing precisely that. Immerse yourself in his gentle wisdom, and watch your results, and your experience of creating them, transform.”
