In this episode we interview John Kolm, a business owner, team productivity expert and author. He shares his journey from intelligence officer to business owner, and tips and advice on improving team productivity in your small business.
John is a business owners, a team productivity expert, a best-selling author, and a former intelligence officer.
Originally from Australia, John co-founded Team Results in 1996. Driven by frustration with the team development options then available to business and government, and with encouragement from early clients, they applied their academic training and practical leadership experience to build the unique approach to team productivity improvement that eventually became Team Results. The company grew rapidly, expanded to a wholly US-owned branch in the United States in 2005, and now operates as a very successful business in both hemispheres.
In 2004 John and Peter wrote the global bestseller “Crocodile Charlie and the Holy Grail”, consolidating ten years of work with peak clients into a compelling story about team productivity, leadership in business and government, and happiness at work.
John is qualified in Psychology from the University of Melbourne, and in mathematics and statistics from the U.S. National Cryptologic School, where he also taught on the faculty.
