Crooked Thinking is like a Meandering Stream

Welcome to Run Toward The Roar!

In the wrong environment, even an extraordinary person would find it hard to stand out and rise above themselves.

In this episode of Run Toward The Roar, John talks about crooked thinking, how it follows the path of least resistance, and causes us to drift further away from our goals. Learn how our beliefs should have the force and fuel to shut down the negative self-talk and headspace that prevents us from thriving.

About John Robertson

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”.
