Scilla Elworthy Nobel Peace Prize Nominee, Author, Societal & Political Change Maker

I’ve asked Nicholas to teach in every major leadership development program I run at the IMD Business School and elsewhere. Why? Because I’ve never seen anyone have a more sustainable, transformational impact on leaders than he does. He’s simply the best.

Michael Watkins Author of The First 90 Days and Professor of Leadership at IMD

“Nicholas Janni is a world-class speaker, coach and workshop conductor with tremendous insight and compassion. He has the unique ability to pinpoint issues or beliefs and take you to the depths of your heart and soul. I give him my highest endorsement.”

Marcia Wieder CEO, Dream University and best selling author

Nicholas’ presence, ability to relate (on many levels) and deeply connect with me and my management staff has profoundly impacted how the team works together and leads.  The teaching he provides is a perfect blend of concepts and embodied activities that has resulted in immediate, transformative change.  I can’t wait to see what we create next…

David Graffy President, ProLift Industrial Equipment

“I run think tanks for CEO’s and business owners in Manhattan who want to develop their leadership. My members are ‘movers and shakers’ who demand value from every meeting. I invited Nicholas to speak at two retreats. They reported ‘”it was our best retreat ever” and many of them are still talking about it…”

Mark Taylor Master Chair, Vistage International

About Nicholas

Over the last 15 years Nicholas has gained an international reputation for his transformational coaching and leadership development seminars. The clients he has served include FedEx, Rolls Royce, Swiss Re, Centrica, Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, Amdocs, Intel, Motorola, Microsoft, eBay and Lafarge, as well as the UK Permanent Secretaries and several cabinet ministers.

He bridges the worlds of creative, personal, spiritual and professional development in a uniquely powerful, relevant and accessible way. In his first career Nicholas was a theatre director. He taught acting at The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, and directed his own theatre company.

He has spent 30 years researching the theory and the practice of ‘the zone’ of peak performance, and studying multiple mind/body disciplines.

In 1998 he became a Visiting Fellow at the Cranfield School of Management, and in 2001 he left the theatre to co-found the arts-based leadership development consultancy Olivier Mythodrama. In 2013 he founded his own consultancy, CORE PRESENCE. He was an Associate Fellow at the University of Oxford Said Business School 2010–15, and currently teaches regularly at the IMD Business School in Lausanne.

He is based partly in Israel, where he works with numerous corporate clients, Israeli and Palestinian NGO’s and at Tel Aviv University Recanati Business School.
