For over twenty years, JP’s curiosity and passion for helping people manage their emotions has driven his research-based approach (his organization surveys over 38,000 people a month) in developing science-based skills and tools required to build a culture of exceptional leadership. His work with leaders from Fortune 500 companies such as Goldman Sachs, Intel, Coco-Cola and Johnson & Johnson, as well as the US Marines, Olympic athletes and NBA and NFL teams has provided him with considerable opportunities to test his science-based tools in environments of high pressure. He knows what works when leaders face their most significant challenges.

When he is not traveling the globe, JP can be found reading, out dancing, or cherishing time with family. It is no coincidence that he loves working with professional and Olympic athletes as he is himself an avid and enthusiastic athlete. JP loves to participate in a variety of sports including running, volleyball, hockey, and swimming and considers himself a ‘professional’ rugby fan.

Pre-keynote survey

The week before a keynote is delivered, we send out a custom link that directs participants to answer a link to a short (4 minute) survey to help uncover some of the key challenges they are facing. The data from this survey provides JP with insights that are used to ensure the presentation addresses directly some of the challenges identified by the respondents. The aggregate results (individual results are confidential) are presented as part of the keynote, providing a connection to the content and the audience.

Senior Leadership Team Executive Briefing

To provide a robust experience for the organization, JP makes himself available for a one-hour leadership briefing with your senior team immediately following the presentation to give them an opportunity to ask questions, build on the insights delivered in the keynote and develop thoughts regarding how best to apply the lessons learned and put the strategies & tools into practice.
