Welcome to

YOUR

AUTOMATIC
CREATIVITY

Hi. I'm  John. For 15 years I was a Broadway producer.

I've won 2 Tony Awards and been nominated for 5.

I've worked with internationally famous artists and global superstars.

I've made over $150m at the box office.

Before that I worked on Wall Street.
After that I innovated cutting edge technology to make live performances fully interactive.

Now I coach founders and leaders in Silicon Valley.

My specialties are creativity and conscious leadership.

They're your two greatest assets as a leader...

Your ultimate unfair advantage.

You’re born with the unbounded capacity for both.
Your experiences are the source of your limitations.

You created blocks to your creativity.
You unconsciously became less conscious.

I can help you unblock your creativity so you can be more productive and innovative.

I can help you develop conscious leadership so you can be more inspirational and effective.  

I learned how from 20 years producing live entertainment, 15 of them on Broadway.

The key is playing parts.
You have more parts inside you than you realize.

Parts Work opens up more than
creativity and leadership skills.
It opens up your entire life.

I've been given several tools that have served me well over the decades.

Now I share them with post-Seed founders and their C-suites to help them foster more creativity in their workplace and become more conscious and effective leaders. 

I developed my coaching formula by serving in a leadership position for thousands of artists and professionals working at the top of the game in one of the toughest industries in the world.  

I combine this experience with training in three modes of Parts Work: Parts Psychology, Voice Dialogue, and the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model. I also draw on ORSC’s Relationships Systems Intelligence model, the Integral Coaching Method, the brain research of Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, and the education research of the late Sir Ken Robinson. 

My approach integrates problematic aspects of your human experience rather than attempting to subdue them. Personal growth is not about acquiring new powers; it is about unblocking your innate abilities. 

In other words, you were born with all the capacities you need to succeed.
You learned to forget them. You can learn to remember them.

It's simple, but it's not easy.
I can show you how,
and I can
help you as you do it.

Over the years I have invited John to speak in my classes dozens of times, for good reason. He is articulate; he's funny; he's inspirational. He's honest, and he's a visionary.

My students are always stunned by his authenticity, amazed by his genius, and moved by his humanity. No matter what I'm teaching, John has something profound, revelatory, and uplifting to bring to our journey. I give him my highest possible recommendation.

Speaking

Your event needs a speaker to be both inspirational and entertaining, able to captivate a crowd with a compelling message while contributing to the message you want your attendees to walk away with.

My 20 years in showbusiness, combined with my decade of speaking at numerous conferences, seminars, and universities, have taught me how to play the room, tailoring a message not just to the audience but also to the objectives of the event.

Whether in person or virtually, around a workshop table or in a massive auditorium, I provide not only a fresh perspective but also actionable tools so your attendees with more than a new worldview... they leave with a new gameplan.

Prominent engagements include

  • On Deck Learning Conference 2021
  • Commercial Theatre Institute
  • Florida Alliance of Arts Educators Summit
