— Wendelin Zellmayer, CEO-Rising Tide, Schaffhausen, Switzerland
I like to define my Coaching experience with John as a non-intrusive journey in self-discovery. It was great to discover my development areas as a leader, but to understand my strengths and how I can use them to potentiate me as a leader. I always prided myself on the strength of the teams I have assembled and surrounding myself with great talent as drivers in achieving good things together. But, having the opportunity to work with John allowed me to get closer to my team. I learned about vulnerability and humbleness and how important they are to demonstrate as the CEO, and how they can impact performance as a team. Today, I can say that because of John’s coaching we have established a foundation to be great, to face our challenges together, and that we are a much stronger senior team.
One of the things that I appreciated the most was how he structured the entire coaching process and how engaged he was. His personal commitment to have face to face sessions not just with me, but with my entire leadership team in order to get a very good understanding of the business we operate, our challenges as a team, but also of the industry we operate in.
The level of comfort that I experienced working with him was amazing; but, it had a lot to do with his empathy and how well he delivers the messages and overall how he coaches.
In Summary, my work with John has had great results and a huge impact on me, my team and our organization
