John O’Grady transitioned out of the U.S. Army after leading large teams tasked with challenging missions deployed to dangerous places around the world. In this conversation, we talk about how those experiences and his time at West Point as a Division 1 Athlete gave him a template for launching his own coaching and executive development practice after leaving uniformed service. John works with leaders in the athletic and executive spaces to refine their talent identification and mentoring, and provide intentional focus on leadership along with all the other disciplines necessary to organizational or team success.
We talk a lot about how his perspective as an Army Colonel gave him confidence to work with new clients and audiences as a civilian coach, and how now he gets to earn a living while remaining connected to something that gave him great fulfillment and joy as a young man: athletics.
