Welcome to Run Toward The Roar!
The how far we get to go in life is determined by how willing we are to continue. That being said, our attitude is one of the important support structures in our ability to thrive.
In this episode of Run Toward The Roar, John talks about understanding ourselves enough to work on how we respond to triggers around us, and how crucial it is to have people who can help us navigate through the eddies that tend to keep us stuck in one place.
Take a moment to listen and learn about the impact of attitude in every single event of our lives, while keeping in mind that our attitude in responding is how we choose it to be.

John Robertson is one of the leading Coaches, Consultants, and Speakers that Leaders in the workplace look to “when things start to feel like they’re falling apart” due to issues with their staff, support systems, and company “ethos” (character and habit driven behaviors that either make or break an organization during times of crisis). Find out more about his THRIVE-based Books, Training, and Resources here.
Driven by a “recognition of others’ strengths” and a deep-seated faith in their ability to find their way through even the most challenging of times— John creates an intensely inspiring environment for recovery, optimization, and triumph.
With over 30 years of experience leading large groups through his involvement in the church alongside shepherding public-service organizations (such as Townships, Firefighters, Police, and First Responders) through their own points of crisis and transition, John is counted on time and time again as “the steady voice of reason during even the most challenging of storms”.
