In both these situations I have been working with people who have been feeling particularly vulnerable and there was something very powerful about the term ‘inner arrogance’ that meant in both situations these people (myself included as I always consider myself a learner in any relationship…be that with family, friend, client or colleague) were able to grasp something strong and solid…something internal…almost like a ‘fire in the belly’.

We unanimously thought it was terrific and were using words like ‘watershed’ in terms of our development. We really appreciate the roles you both played with us and the time you gave us...

We really hope you will keep working with us as many light bulbs went on as to what we could be as a team and we would love your guidance to help us get there.

John attended our annual leadership conference in Jaipur and presented what it meant to be a high performance team, and importantly how to lead one. John shared several leadership lessons, which were made real with stories from John’s experience coaching the Australian cricket team and the Kolkata Knight Riders organization. All the delegates at the conference enjoyed John’s presentation and were able to take many lessons back to apply in their own business units.

My sincere appreciation for your extremely relevant & thought provoking presentation to delegates at our 2016 Authorised Partners conference in Cairns... we have captured our numerous highlights and memorable moments. Feedback received was excellent and you most certainly hit the mark...

Thanks again for your contribution to the success of our 2016 conference!
