About Mike Hyter

Michael Hyter (Mike) is the president and managing partner of Global Novations, a global talent management consultancy. Throughout his 15-year career at the firm, he has worked to meet its mission of developing talent and helping organizations increase the full potential of their employees. He works with global organizations such as Kraft Foods in championing Efficacy, a strategy for achieving career mastery, mobility, and momentum.

Hyter’s new book, “The Power of Choice,” is based on lessons he learned throughout a more than 30-year career. In 1979, Hyter participated in an Efficacy program that had a profound impact on his career, so he wrote this book to inspire professionals, especially minorities, to adopt efficacy principals and take personal responsibility for their career success.
