John Cameron – now VP Product at LIFX:
the first step you take to driving your own life and career, rather than letting it drive you
Here is what John had to say on LinkedIn about choosing a coach then getting guidance and inspiration from the coaching program he embarked upon with Heiner as he was approaching the 20th year of his career (Read here the full testimonial and also here):
… Heiner is also a deeply insightful individual and coaching professional, and constantly showed me new professional and personal perspectives on my life. I found these insights extremely useful, and they catalysed many positive improvements on how I can leverage my strengths and what I enjoy, and how to balance my business aspirations with what matters to me and my family in my life.
Heiner introduced me to a new vocabulary and awareness of managerial eliteness… topics like governance, risk taking, leadership and negotiating took a new light when Heiner helped apply them to my work and life. I have been particularly impressed by his attention to soft skills awareness … These learnings continue to improve my confidence and hunger for advancement.
John also says that he is listening to Heiner’s podcasts to extend the benefit of the program and he adds that others have noticed the difference that Heiner’s coaching has been making to his approach.
Here is how John’s wife sees it:
I saw this spark of excitement
Over the last decade or so I have watched John as he navigates his professional working life and seen the growth that comes through new challenges and experiences, however it was not until John did the course with Heiner that I saw this spark of excitement as many pieces of a big puzzle seemed to make sense and fall into place for John. It has changed his perspective and approach to so many things for the better.
