Affectionately known as “The Kindness Guy,” Michael J. Chase is a bestselling author, inspirational speaker and one of today’s most powerful voices for creating a kinder world. In 2007 he founded The Kindness Center, and is now considered an expert on the subjects of kindness and positive behavior. As a world-renowned leader in personal and spiritual development, Michael reveals how living from the heart plays a critical role in healing our lives and our planet.

In addition to teaching the importance of humankind-ness, he offers proof that within our challenges lie great opportunities for growth and service toward others. Despite a family history of substance abuse, violence, depression, and suicide, Michael chose a different path, spreading positive energy throughout the world.


Whether presenting in a classroom, boardroom, or on stage in front of thousands, his message of hope impacts countless lives each year. In 2010, Michael joined the Hay House speaking roster, which includes self-empowerment legends Louise L. Hay, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Marianne Williamson and many more. He has since been a main presenter at Hay House conferences throughout the US and Canada.

Michael’s work is not aligned with any particular belief system -- his teachings are based on the universal language of kindness, which embraces all and excludes none. He has written two bestselling books on this subject and is currently working on his third, with an expected release date in 2017.

The 2017-2018 school year is off to an amazing start as Michael has already worked with thousands of students! There are now a limited number of presentations available this fall. To reserve a date for your school, please contact us today!

"Michael, I wanted to thank you again for coming to Washington Academy to work with our students and staff. It was a great day, so productive and fun for the kids. We will be working hard to promote kindness each and every day and thinking of you as we do."
