Through such experiences as delivering a “Rainforest CEO” TEDx talk, motorcycling into Monument Valley, being welcomed as a change agent into a remote village in Papua New Guinea, and emerging from his tightly-wound young executive self, John Quinlan developed his Wisdom Life Chart.
EXPERIENCE + KNOWLEDGE + SELF-REFLECTION = WISDOM
Why this matters to you: John opens an opportunity door for you to become a fully human and successful leader. He provides the complete key to the Wisdom equation in his new book, Alignment Strong: A Strategic and Human-Centric Handbook for Competitive Leadership. In it, you will see how a supposed weakness — vulnerability — becomes a strength and advantage. You will gain the insights of a life-long learner, find practical exercises to round out your self-understanding and skills, and see how to gain personal wisdom and apply it to your leadership development.
A company president who was coached by John Quinlan in adopting the Alignment Strong framework summed up the experience by saying it felt to her “like an MBA on steroids.”
John’s first book, Tau Bada: The Quest and Memoir of a Vulnerable Man, detailed the gritty experiences that brought new meaning to his understanding of management consulting. The result was wisdom that he applied to both business and personal relationships.
From Patrick Hainault, Vice President Corporate Business Development at Mansueto Ventures – Inc. Fast Company. ”John Quinlan is an entrepreneurial polymath with a depth and breadth of experiences few can match. John has proven himself to be an insightful change agent in rebuilding and scaling businesses.”, not separated.
