Craig Johns, also known as the active CEO and Chief Energy Officer, is an entertaining, engaging and thought-provoking international speaker, who focuses on transforming influencers into being high performing leaders.
In 2013, Craig Johns’ 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, for 302 days straight, 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.
“Do you know we are all CEO’s? … The Chief Energy Officer of our lives! … and think how that energy affects other people and the way you behave.” CRAIG JOHNS
He decided to Break The CEO Code and focus on implementing the skills he had learnt as a former elite athlete, sport scientist and international 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 transform leaders into becoming high performing leaders.
“As humans we are creatures of habit and require boundaries in our lives.” CRAIG JOHNS

Craig focuses on human performance, productivity, leadership and team culture for CEO’s, C-Suite executives, managers and leaders.

GRAVITY OF LEADERSHIP
DISCOVER THE DNA OF HIGH PERFORMING LEADERS WHO CREATE THRIVING TEAMS
The weight on the shoulders of leaders has taken a gravitational shift as we deal with a future of economic volatility, building a positive culture in remote teams, wellbeing being at the centre of decision making, and increasing expectations on agile innovation. Understanding the gravity of your leadership and how it positively or negatively affects the people you influence, is crucial to your own and organisation’s success.
“How can you be relentless in pursuit of excellence without being ruthless or reckless?”

HOW TO DECODE ENERGY FOR THE FUTURE OF LEADERSHIP
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.
“Have you ever over done it, in your life … for all the right reasons?” CRAIG JOHNS
HOW TO TURN HIGH PRESSURE MOMENTS INTO PERFORMANCE SUCCESS, BY LEANING INTO PRESSURE
In a world of uncertainty and competition for our attention, we feel under relentless pressure to perform. When it comes to performance, pressure always wins. The most successful teams and people walk towards pressure, and they understand the art of when to apply or release it.
“We are told that pressure should be avoided, when in fact you should lean into pressure.”
8 WAYS TO OWN YOUR OWN INFLUENCE
The world is constantly challenging us through disruption, competing priorities and competition for our attention, therefore we must take control of our own story and influence. You are the sum total of your decisions. You own the choices that you make. How much of your life do you really own and take full responsibility for?
“Stand up and live in an uncommon place” CRAIG JOHNS
