What Is FEAR? Not What You May Think!

“Be your own action hero.”

John Davis is a dynamic speaker, accomplished leader, and expert in managing people to peak performances during change. He has over 20 years of experience speaking for Fortune 500 clients and a broad swath of industries including healthcare, financial, insurance, retail, and the military, at hundreds of conferences, seminars, and retreats.

His background in peak performances stems from his work as a fight director and stunt coordinator for stage and film as well as his work for the military. His ability to engage individuals, unite teams, and drive change was instrumental in increased profitability of three regional theme parks by more than 60% in under six months of his direction.

During this time, John was a professional comedian who brought his unique entertainments to bear for our military on six USO tours to the front lines of both Iraq and Afghanistan.

John was also a college professor at Oberlin. His fascination with personal development led him to study the neuroscience of performance. He developed peak performance protocols based upon the fight or flight response, called the “Five F Protocols.” Based upon the primal reactions of the fight or flight response, the “Five F Protocols” have proven over the years to drastically reduce learning curves and all but eliminate self-defeating thoughts that hinder performance.
