Optimal Performance Specialist

What is the Optimal Performance Experience? Imagine the feeling of being free and unleashed to achieve

Leading sports psychologist, Dr. Robert Nideffer, has referred optimal performance as those relatively infrequent times when individuals feel totally immersed in the performance. They are “in the moment” performing at an automatic level, without need for conscious thought or direction. They feel totally in control, totally focused on the task, extremely confident, with a total loss of self-consciousness, and their perception of the passage of time is altered either losing all awareness of time, or feeling as if things are happening in slow motion (Williams & Krane, 2000).

For three decades, John has counseled, taught and entertained audiences to let go of limitations and achieve more.

Programming Your Human Computer is his keynote that combines a science based, motivational presentation followed by the most entertaining and hilarious hypnosis demonstration that you’ll ever see.

John has presented for audiences in over 20 U.S. states and over 100 cities. Your people will leave happy, amazed, empowered and ready to achieve.
