His insights will elevate any individual or team, allowing them to accelerate their journey toward excellence. John has been a trusted advisor and personal sounding board and confidant of mine, helping me navigate some very challenging situations – he has always shown tremendous empathy and humility while delivering sound and honest advice. Quite simply, John is a values-based, class act.”
“John O’Grady spoke to our NYJets Defense Friday & was outstanding. His message & ability to communicate with our guys was special. His ability to speak to the entire audience but make each person feel as if he was talking to only him was great. He was able to keep everyone in the meeting room focused on the message & alert for more. John has a great understanding of how to get his audience to not only listen, but also “feel” his message. Our players are still talking about the message & repeating the objectives learned. I would strongly recommend giving your group, team, department, or company the opportunity to listen & feel the messages John O’Grady can communicate to improve performance & production”.
“John’s ability to translate his incredible leadership experience as a decorated combat veteran in an easily translatable and understandable manner made a positive impact on our players and staff. He provided practical, confidential advice and tools that positively impacted our leadership and culture. He is now part of our Wagner Football Family.”
