LEARN HOW TO BE "IN THE ZONE" & PERFORM AT YOUR BEST (no matter how uncertain life becomes)

THE ESSENCE OF PERFORMANCE

3 DAY EXPERIENCE

BOOK YOUR SEAT

Over the course of this 3-day long event, you will go on a physical and metaphorical journey of exploration into the heart of performance and potential.

You will be learning a cutting edge understanding of the mind which will help you to perform at your best more of the time whether in your life, work or business.

Come away from the experience with:

  • Greater Resilience - in the face of challenging problems or greater uncertainty
  • Improved Decision Making - whether in day to day activities at work or in those crucial moments
  • Increased Creativity & Inspiration - know how to tap into your full creative potential but without all the usual effort
  • Less Stress & Pressure - understand what causes stress and drama for you and discover how to let go and allow your full potential to come through
  • An Increased Ability To Perform - in your own work, as a leader or as part of a team. How you show up will be forever transformed
  • Improved Driver Skills - improve your ability to safely handle any car in extreme circumstances with an amazing experience of driving a Porsche 911

We will bring to life this understanding while driving one of the greatest performance icons of all time, the Porsche 911. This will all take place at the Porsche Experience Centre based at Silverstone, UK. 

How can we perform more at our best more of the time?  What stops us being in that state of flow, even when the pressure seems to mount?

There is a space that athletes call... "Being In The Zone", and no matter what our role or job, on some level we all know that we function at our best when we aren't involved in the noise of our minds.

For the last 17 years I have been facilitating people to see, understand and drop into this space more so that they can perform more efficiently and effectively with a lot less stress in all aspects of life.

Being in this space is not so much about having better tools and techniques. Rather it's about understanding fundamental truths about life and how we really function.  

The driver training you will receive at the Porsche Experience centre will help us to really see, in a controlled and safe environment, just how important this space is when driving one of the most iconic high performance sports cars.

It will serve as an experiential metaphor that brings to life the understanding that you can take into our lives.  

Cars have always been my escape.  As a young kid I used to pore through car magazines religiously and learn every detail I could about my favourite cars.

As I grew older, during those moments when I’d get frustrated or lost to know what to do, going for a drive became my way of resetting my mind. A place where I knew I’d be totally present and in the moment. In that clarity and space of mind, insights would flow, and often I would return from a drive more grounded and settled.

But I also learned something fundamental about driving fast cars: you can’t drive them fast when you are in your head lost in your thinking. You need to be present and aware, at one with the machine, responding to what it does in the moment.

THE INVITATION

My coaching career showed me that the space, where we both drive well and have insights about life, is a really natural thing.

It’s possible to be in this space far more often when we understand how our minds work. This is something I have facilitated with individuals and groups time and time again, each with their own amazing results.

How can we perform more at our best more of the time?  What stops us being in that state of flow, even when the pressure seems to mount?

YOUR EXPERIENCE INCLUDES:

GROUP COACHING

Over the 3 days as part of a small group you will get:

  • 2 x half day group sessions
  • 1 x full day group session

These sessions will be combined with the driving experiences to bring to life your understanding of the nature of performance.

PRE EVENT GROUP SESSION

A few weeks before the event join the other participants on Zoom as an introduction to what is to be explored and expect during the experience.   

POST EVENT 1-2-1 SESSION WITH JOHN

In the 3 months following the event you will have a 1-2-1 session with John when you feel you need it most. Explore areas you feel stuck with or wish to go deeper into.

DRIVING EXPERIENCE & INSTRUCTION

You will get two half days driving. You will have an instructor who will assist you in understanding the fundamentals of how to safely get the best out of driving a Porsche. 

MULTIPLE CAR EXPERIENCE

As part of the whole experience you will get to drive two distinct models of Porsche. First you will experience a Cayenne then onto a 911 for the second half day driving session.

911 MEETING ROOM

We have booked the 911 meeting room, at the Porsche Experience Centre, for all our group coaching sessions. Enjoy sitting in a 911 seat as you explore the essence of performance coaching.

REFRESHMENTS

Breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and unlimited refreshments are included for all three days.

NAVIGATING THE UNKNOWN

As part of the experience you will be receiving expert tuition whilst driving Porsche's in various situations. The exercises you will do will serve to bring to life the coaching you will receive.

A tangible example of this will be the kick plate exercise.

As you will see from the video, the purpose of the kick plate is to test your ability to safely handle a random skid scenario.

Of course in order to do this it is important to understand the fundamentals of handling a skid, which the driving instructors on the event will teach you.  

But no matter how skilled you are, state of mind is paramount.

Get too confident and you will lose your presence to sense what is happening and misread the skid. 

Get too competitive and try to 'beat' the other trainees and you are out of the performance space.

Think you can 'predict' in your thinking what the kickplate will do and you will likely end up sideways!

This and the other driving exercises we will do will remind us that performance is not a state of 'trying' and 'efforting'.  It does not come from us being in our heads.

The coaching we will do in the training room will help you to see that this space is a universal ingredient in us all being at our best AND help to ground us more in it.

Come away from the experience with...

  • Improved Decision Making - whether in day to day activities at work or in those crucial moments that make a real difference
  • Increased Creativity & Inspiration - know how to tap into your full creative potential but without all the usual effort
  • Less Stress & Pressure - understand what causes stress and drama for you and discover how to let go and allow your full potential to come through.
  • An Increased Ability To Perform - in your own work, as a leader or as part of a team. How you show up will be forever transformed.
BOOK YOUR SPOT
When I first began working with John, I saw myself as a truly lost soul. Despite having the external trappings of a ‘successful’ life I was wracked with anxiety and depression, and yet terrified to make any changes, for fear that my carefully constructed reality would all fall apart. As I started to see life and my role in it differently, the truth is, it did. But in doing so it came back together to create a reality that is beyond my wildest imaginings.
When I started to see, with John’s help and wisdom, that the universal mind is far more creative than I could ever be, and just let life happen, instead of trying to control it; I started to see what was possible and changes began to organically take place that have led to a life that is unrecognizable from the life I led before, in every way.
I would say that I am a different person, but actually I am not, I’ve just found out who I really was all along. I cannot recommend working with this man enough. Transformational.

Changing My Relationship To Doing Well

ABOUT JOHN EL-MOKADEM

I've always wanted to be the best at everything I did - a reaction I would guess that stems from being around other successful people. I was never pushed by anyone specifically to be the best at what I did but I always felt this inner pressure to perform. It was as if failing to perform somehow meant something bad about me, my worth or life.

Consequently I spent a lot of time thinking, efforting and trying really hard to do well. I was very type A! My mind was rarely quiet, and for the longest time it seemed to me like I was sitting in front of a metaphorical control panel with a lot of levers, and that it was my job figure it all.

On some level it seemed to work. Academically I excelled and was educated to a Masters level, and in my job working at a large IT Consultancy I was consistently rated within the top of my peer group. I then set up my own coaching practice and was working with large corporate clients.

But it was exhausting trying to control everything, and eventually I became sick.

My healing journey and coaching training allowed me to see that I could experience life in a whole new way that required a lot less effort than I previously thought.

I found myself led to creating a whole new part of my coaching business helping many other high performers who had also burned out.

What came from this healing journey is a thriving coaching practice which has enabled me to travel the world coaching clients, running programs and even had my research published in an APA journal. Helping people and changing others lives is something I'm truly passionate about and I cannot wait to share this experience with you driving my favourite car, the Porsche 911.

Jennie

“Transformational is a powerful description and in my opinion commonly overused, but the two and a half days I spent in intensive 1:1 coaching with John proved to be truly transformational. The massive change in my state of mind that has followed has led to a level of clarity, peace and contentment which is beyond anything I could have hoped for. I’ve experienced more joy, more fun and the greatest sense of calm I’ve felt in years. I have been able to navigate what would otherwise have seemed like some pretty challenging and stressful situations, in both a professional and a personal context, with more grace than I would have thought possible. I cannot recommend John highly enough.”

S.M - Company Director (one to one client / other group event)

“Over the last 13 years I have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of coaches, John is without doubt one of the best. He is equipped with all the fundamentals which in my mind make a great coach, he is empathetic, curious, challenging, non judgmental and most of all listens well enough to actually SEE the person he is coaching. John has found a way to use his considerable intellect in harmony with his intuition which means I always feel I am having a conversation rather than being at the receiving end of a formulaic coaching process. Whilst he has numerous qualifications, models, books, theories, courses at his disposal he is not attached to any of them, choosing instead to focus in the moment on the conversation and the person he is with. John is all the stronger for recognising his own human frailties, and has real courage in offering real person experiences that help him connect to the people he works with. As director of Zoom, having worked with over 80 companies around the world, I would always recommend John to anyone truly seeking to make a transformation in their personal and professional life.”

Why Porsche 911’s and Coaching?

I grew up around cars. Some of my earliest memories during my childhood were spending time with my Father who at the time owned a Black Porsche 911 Turbo. I loved it, and I loved being with him in it. The sound of it’s turbocharged flat 6 Boxer engine which went from docile animal to raging beast seemingly in the blink of an eye, the smell of the leather and the shape of the thing with it’s outrageous whale-tail spoiler – the combination was intoxicating, even as a passenger. As a kid I was obsessed with the things and knew that one day I wanted to own one.
