Craig Johns – Breaking the CEO Code

Craig Johns

CEO & Founder of NRG2Perform


In 2013 Craig’s life changed. He found himself flat-lining in an emergency room as a result of going beyond the human limits. Craig was working more than 70-80 hours a week, disregarding personal health and well-being, and experiencing high levels of stress. The emotional effects on his wife, employees and those closest to him was the catalyst he needed to be more than a leader of high performance and become a high performing leader.

“Where the ordinary don’t belong!” CRAIG JOHNS

He decided to Break The CEO Code and focus on implementing the skills he had learnt as an elite athlete, sport scientist and national head coach into becoming a high performing CEO. Utilising his 25 years of experience successfully leading, managing, coaching and providing sport science around the globe, Craig has developed Breaking The CEO Code and active CEO to enable leaders to be high performing people.

Through his active CEO podcast, programs, speaking and consulting, Craig works with organisations and individuals to improve their wellness, productivity, influence and performance.

Future Of Leadership Performance

It can be very lonely at the top. Leaders are constantly under pressure to deliver outcomes such as more perfection, profit, products and prestige. They fall into the trap of working harder and thinking that more is better, when in most cases less is more. Craig learnt first hand the negative consequences of setting a culture of more, rather than facilitating a high performance environment.

Your organisation, team or people of influence are directly affected by the energy, stress, mood and focus you arrive with every single day. When CEO’s and leaders do not proactively plan or manage their energy and stress over time, it leads to a catastrophic effect on the performance and productivity of themself, their company, and their relationships. There is a solution!
