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.
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.
Over The Course Of The 3 Days We Will Explore:
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:
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.
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.
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.

I highly recommend working with this man. Transformational."
“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.”
