Born without arms, John Foppe has had to break down and re-think every aspect of day-to-day life.
He learned that the inability to do something didn’t rest on the lack of resources or vision. Instead, it has more to do with one’s subconscious perception to meeting a challenge head on.
In the field as part of his master’s degree in social work, John saw this scenario play out repeatedly. To his surprise, he discovered that many people subconsciously substitute personal improvement with systems to support their perceived limitations.
John witnessed a resistant mindset operate in all sort of companies. He repeatedly heard leaders complain about how difficult is to motivate their people.
John has addressed this common performance challenge through years of research, clinical study and field testing, which ultimately led to the discovery of the primary cause of failed vision execution. In light of this important, personally-significant discovery, he has developed a variety of solutions to help individuals and leaders overcome their exasperation and translate their visions into outcomes.
John is a contributing editor for “U.S. Business Review”.
He wrote a bimonthly column entitled, The Vision Thing, focusing on how to maintain momentum when translating visions into outcomes.
