Meet Team Genesis
Headed by our coaches, Michael and Michele, Genesis Group's mission is to guide others to become the most joy-filled individuals possible.
We believe that recognizing the unique Natural Design each of us have been given and putting it to use in every aspect of our lives will open the doors to our highest level of creativity, productivity and joy.
Our Natural Design Specialists
Hello! We are father-daughter team, Michael Barati and Michele Toumanian: motivational speakers, coaches, and educators. We believe wholeheartedly in the value of knowing and applying your God-given design to all aspects of your life. Our passion is to identify, analyze and determine if your own Natural Design aligns to your lifestyle and environment. If it doesn't, we'll help you make the appropriate adjustments.
We're here to guide you toward getting the most out of your life, your relationships or your business.
In his extensive business career, Michael Barati has operated several family businesses as well as a financial advisory company, managing portfolios for multi-million dollar businesses. However, his heart for helping entrepreneurs and small business owners succeed by leveraging their Natural Design led him to become a life and business coach.
Twelve years and many successes later, he and his daughter, Michele, have set out to reach more people in need by taking the concepts of Natural Design to a web-based audience.
In addition to his expertise teaching others to get the most out of their unique make-up, Michael holds a degree in Economics from the University of Toronto and is also a Certified Financial Planner.
Michele Toumanian has always had a passion for helping people though their struggles, as well as helping them build healthy relationships and finding joy in their lives. She graduated with honors from Taylor University in 1994 with her degree in Psychology. She continued on in her post graduate work earning her licenses as a Clinical Christian Counselor, a Licensed Pastoral Counselor, and a Certified Temperament Counselor. She then graduated Summa Cum Laude with her Masters Degree in Clinical Christian Counseling. Michele is continuing on in her studies to earn her Ph.D.
